review The Water Method Man Ñ eBook or Kindle ePUB The main character of John Irving's second novel written when the author was twenty nine is a perpetual graduate student. To be honest I found this novel something of a confusing jumble It flits between first and third person narrative the places Vienna Iowa New York and Maine and is continually moving back and forward in time The beginning is promising enough PhD student Fred Bogus Trumper consults renowned urologist Dr Jean Claude Vigneron about a particularly painful dose of clap with which he has been afflicted so it would seem since he was a teenager Not being enthusiastic about a possible surgical solution he elects to pursue the so called water method of the title in an effort to cure him of this impediment for good At this point I was hoping that things would take off but sadly the novel failed to sustain this initial comic momentumIt wasn t abundantly clear to begin with whether Bogus was with Biggie or Tulpen or both since time frames weren t made obvious This may have been a failure on my part but it took me a good few chapters to get the chronology straight The characters feel less well developed than those in Irving s later novels and the plot fails in my view to live up to its original promise the Merrill Overturf diversion while entertaining felt like the nucleus of a very different novel a thriller perhapsIn conclusion I found this a disappointing and frustrating read which is only really of interest as a precursor to Irving s later and infinitely better works

Technically a 25 star ratingI m a big big fan of Irving s later books Garp Owen Meany Cider House Rules Until I Find You so I was intrigued to read one of his earlier works But it was nowhere as good which I should have expected This was choppier and uneveninconsistent than I m used to from Irving and his storytelling skill is not nearly as goodcompelling as it becomesIrving obviously naturally gravitates towards flawed uirky characters but in this book had not yet uite honed his ability to make them whole and human The constant unpredictable changes in POVs were somewhat annoying and distracting as was his habit of referring to the main character by various nicknames often in the same sentence I imagine this was purposeful and intended to emphasize Trumper s lack of depth identity purpose etc but it didn t really work generally detracting from rather than adding to the storyAs always with Irving childhood abandonment is a key theme poor Irving and fathers that leave although I m used to the actual fathers being absent from his books rather than having the story told from the father s perspective It is hard to be on this father s side as it s obvious Irving hasn t uite achieved an understanding of the absent father s motivations which is reinforced by the whole cast of characters saying things to Trumper like You just leave You don t even know why and Trumper conceding that yes yes they are all right He just leaves He doesn t know whyAnd he Irving andor Trumper never really addresses that never figures out why Trumper leaves with such freuency which is largely why the ending feels too forced abrupt and pat neatly tied up with a ribbon It was unsatisfying as Trumper doesn t have to deal with any real conseuences of his actions and his character arc feels unprompted and unbelievable He just seems to have this random moment of this is what I m going to do and so he does it also completely out of character for no good reason and then he repents his errant ways and lives happily ever after It was a bit jarring
