John Irving is one of my favorite authors. He creates a fantastic universe and the descriptions of persons in his books are amazing.
My favorite book by John Irving is The cider house rules (Æblemostreglementet in Danish). Which is a book about a doctor in an orphanage and his relation to one of the Kids there. The kid, named Homer, never finds a new family. Homer becomes the doctor shelper, but he wants more adventure in his life. This he finds, but I won’t reveal too much of the story. It’s a very touching and yet humorous book.
The book is also made into a film.
