Robert Wu A Prayer For Owen Meany Characters Owen Meany: -name contrasts with his tiny voice and short figure, “Meany” -forgiving, picked up by Sunday School classmates and called “little doll” by the girls but never held a grudge against anyone or reported anything to Mrs. Walker -introspect, gets energy from objects, i.e. his baseball cards -has bad self image, evident in his dialogue before and after the game in which Johnny’s cousin hid Owen, “I think I know a game that would not be quite exciting for me, but […] I think it would not be boring for you” -pro-war, preferred military confrontations between opposing sides and despised the anti-war yippies and President Reagon’s idea of a fresh start -possesses a very accurate memory, very specific about how many people died at each battle in Vietnam, can recount exactly how Harriet’s scream sounded when she caught him in the same bed as Tabby -I like how Owen can add a religious touch to things he offered his religious insight to A Christmas Carol and added a religious comment to Sagamore’s funeral
