John Irving: Setting Free the Bears


This is John Irving’s first novel and it was published in 1968. I bought my copy from Bol and it has 438 pages.

"It is 1967 and two Viennese university students decide to liberate the Vienna Zoo, as was done after World War II. The eccentric duo, Graff and Siggy, embark on an adventure-filled motorbike tour of Austria as they prepare for "the great zoo bust." But their grand scheme will have both comic and gruesome consequences, as they are soon to find out..."

I really, really didn't like this book. My uncle, who loves John Irving, is the only reason I finished it.

1 star

Happy reading.

Time for a break!
