I really enjoyed this book. Great likeable characters. As the title might indicate, the plot twists, turns, and toward the end surprises.

Any book written by John Irving is worth reading. he is by far my favorite author. I've only just begun Last Night in Twisted River but already he has taken me to a completely different way of life with interesting people. I expect to enjoy every minute of the adventure.

Once again, Mr. Irving did not disappoint. I had a little trouble getting started, not being very interested in the logging industry, but once the story got going and the characters became real, I was hooked and couldn't put it down.
