The Hotel New Hampshire is a startlingly original family saga, and The Cider House . A Son of the Circus is an extraordinary evocation of modern day India. John Irving's latest and most ambitious novel is A Widow for One Year.

Hotel NH is an entertaining and eccentric book that initially seems more often than not outlandish, slapstick, and surely implausible, given such scenes as a trick-performing bear, named State o' Maine, who rides in a motorcycle sidecar and people being frightened to death by the likes of a stuffed dog falling from a closet or the sudden turning on of bright lights. But on another level, the book is somewhat redeemed by its depiction of a family of five children who despite some rough patches show a great deal of regard and support for each other, while enduring any number of bizarre and difficult situations and occurrences. The main thread in the story revolves around the operation of three hotels, all named Hotel New Hampshire, first in New Hampshire, followed by Vienna, Austria, and then Maine, by the Berry family, headed by Win and Mary, with children, in descending age order, Frank, Franny, John, Lilly, and Egg. John is the reliable narrator of their wacky story as the scenes shift over the years.

It is Win, a dreamer and teacher in Dairy, NH, who on a whim decides, in the mid-1950s, to buy and convert a dilapidated girls' school to a hotel, at the time when the three oldest children are teenagers. The chaos of running and living in the hotel seems to bring out their different personalities: John is the loner; Franny is the rock; John is the follower; Lilly is the writer; and Egg is the baby. Rather surprisingly, the Berry's abandon, that is, sell, the first hotel when Win is lured to Austria by Freud, not Simon but a vaudevillian he knew from a summer job in Maine sixteen years earlier, to operate a hotel, sight unseen. The intensity of the story is ratcheted up at this point, as women of the evening and a mysterious band of radicals occupy two floors in their out-of-the way, dumpy hotel. Win, having lost his wife to an accident, is so disconnected that it is up to Frank and Franny to navigate the intricacies of running the hotel and deal with a variety of stubborn personalities, including Freud's latest bear, a female who wears a bear suit.

Being in such close proximity to a large assortment of people in these two hotels practically forced an accelerated maturation on the Berry kids, as sexual self-discovery is a strong current in the story. John and Franny, the two best looking of the kids, are most open to various experiences, though Franny endures an assault in New Hampshire with remarkable resilience. A delicate subject for the author and the reader is the love - the physical attraction - that John and Franny hold for each other and the manner in which they resolve that very sensitive situation.

As said, the book is interesting and not without its comedic parts, but nonetheless it seems excessively drawn out - overly repetitious in trite expressions, truisms, mannerisms, actions, and reactions. The most compelling aspect of the entire saga is the very appealing character Franny, who shows uncommon toughness and street-smarts, freely acknowledged by her siblings. However, more often, the strangeness and oddities of the characters and events almost overwhelm; the numerous accidents and unexpected deaths are more jolting than additive to the story. The fantastical vein of the story continues as the Berry's return to NYC after seven years in Austria, having survived a terrorist plot hatched by the radicals, now recipients of a financial windfall, ostensibly because Lilly has written a book on growing up small, but more due to their notoriety from foiling the event. The Maine chapter of the hotel story, actually it is a crisis center for women who have been assaulted, is a time for resolution, a welcome return to normalcy. Over all, who could guess that the hotel business, conducted by rank amateurs, could be so zany, eventful, and lucrative?

My favorite Irving book ever! It is so twisted and wonderful that it will take your mind, and morals; on an epic adventure.

What a charming story. John Irving is of course a master of creating intriguing stories. You will fall in love with the characters immediately. Couldn't put it down.

Recommended by a friend. This is not the genre I usually read, but I loved this book. It's drama and characters shine. It's also got a good bit of truth in it, which you will know if you have ever spent any amount of time living in a hotel and paid any attention to the world around you.

Pretty good book. It's not among John Irving's best--Prayer for Owen Meany, Cider House Rules, World According to Garp--but it's a very fun story. There were several moments when I laughed out loud. Some of the metaphors were overused.

This was a very difficult book to read. A very unusual family and difficult writing style made it one of the least liked books I have read in a long time.

John Irving captured me the moment I set eyes on this book some twenty years ago and John Berry, Franny Berry and their family haven't let go. An elegent and funny story, The Hotel New Hampshire follows the lives of the Berry Family from a small New Hampshire town to post-Russian occupation Vienna and home again. As they grow, or in one case don't, they run across performing bears, football stars, blind Jewish hoteliers, marxist terrorists, prostitutes galore and enough personal tragedy to last any family a lifetime. Throughout they laugh, they love and they experience profound sorrow. You'll finish this book ready to read it again and again for it is never the same twice. Does Sorrow float? Should one keep passing the open windows? These question will float around your mind. John Irving has created the great American novel, without exception.
I had never read anything by Irving before but now I'm hooked. I bought two more of his books since. He writes in a manner that is both easy to read and captivating. He describes normal situations in a way that makes them grandiose and has wonderful characters that completely bring the story to life. I am now a John Irving fan for life :).
