A Prayer for Owen Meany - John Irving

I read this in the hopes that I could use it as a novel for a class read, but since I would be using this in my high school American Lit class, the profanity is prohibitive. A shame, really, because I enjoyed the character development and the gut-wrenching plot. At times I found the prose a bit too wordy, but I still enjoyed the novel as a whole. Owen's character really came alive for me, and I felt as though I actually got to know him.
