A Prayer for Owen Meany
This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
I am doomed to remember a boy with a wrecked voice—not because of his voice, or because he was the smallest person I ever knew, or even because he was the instrument of my mother's death, but because he is the reason I believe in God; I am a Christian because of Owen Meany.
In the summer of 1953, two eleven-year-old boys—best friends—are playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire. One of the boys hits a foul ball that kills the other boy's mother. The boy who hits the ball doesn't believe in accidents; Owen Meany believes he is God's instrument. What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is extraordinary.

What am I missing!
Downloaded this book after reading the reviews. I can't force myself to keep reading . The most boring book I've ever read.
All is now right with the world!
I have been waiting and anticipating the release of this book in iBooks ever since the ebook craze started. This is definitely one of Irving's best, and one of the top great books of all times. It warms the heart, brings laughter to the soul, and celebrates our humanity. My day is now brighter!
One of Irvings best - I red it so many years ago, then again after my own mom died (it was her book) and loved it again. It is a tale of friendship that just speaks to you!
