The Shipping News
Annie Proulx-


At thirty-six, Quoyle, a third-rate newspaperman, is wrenched violently out of his workaday life when his two-timing wife gets her just desserts. He retreats with his two daughters to his ancestral home on the starkly beautiful Newfoundland coast, where a rich cast of local characters all play a part in Quoyle's struggle to reclaim his life. As three generations of his family cobble up new lives, Quoyle confronts his private demons—and the unpredictable forces of nature and society—and begins to see the possibility of love without pain or misery.

Review this book



This book was "okay". I think I enjoyed the movie more. If you like depressing books then this is the book for you. It wasnt a real page turner but it did have it's moments. It is better I think to read the book before the movie...otherwise it wont be as interesting to read. I think that was what happend to me. (Great buys for used books)
