Last Night in Twisted River - John Irving - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Last Night in Twisted River:

An author's experience in bear killing.

My favorite John Irving quote from the book:

"If you're fortunate enough to discover a way of life that you love, you have to find the courage to live it."

Questions I pondered while reading Last Night in Twisted River:

Why do we lie to our kids?

Why not stand your ground?

My thoughts about Last Night in Twisted River:

Melodrama at its finest.

I kept getting hungry while I read.

Ketchum has been added to my favorite characters list.
