Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

It is 1967 and two Viennese university students want to liberate the Vienna Zoo, as was done after World War II. But their good intentions have both comic and gruesome consequences, in this first novel written by a twenty-five year old John Irving, already a master storyteller.


Review:

"He made a wonderful debut with 'Setting Free the Bears', his first novel....It's a gargantuan book, both in length and in scope. It plunges dauntlessly into such diverse subjects as Serbo-Croatian politics, pre-war Vienna, and bee-keeping. There's no doubt it was written by someone young....But the author is clearly no beginner, even here. He writes with confidence and style."

Anne Tyler, New Republic, 4/26/80
