The Shipping News — Annie Proulx

The Shipping News -- Annie ProulxHaving read Accordion Crimes years ago, i set Annie as a saved author in my Bookbub account in the hope of getting a cheap copy for my kindle so i could read it again sometime.

But instead of the hoped for Accordion Crimes, Bookbub sent me an email for this book instead. So i clicked straight through to Amazon in the hope of more of the fantastic writing i had enjoyed so much in Accordion Crimes: i wasn’t disappointed.

Once again, Annie’s writing and attention to detail is incredible, and she really takes you on the journey of the main protagonist as he settles into his new life in Newfoundland.

One thing this book does do is convinces me that i never, ever, want to go to Newfoundland, and it does make me wonder why Annie would buy a summer house there: possibly for inspiration?

Anyway, if you’re looking for a great read you can’t really go wrong with Annie Proulx, and i very much look forward to Bookbub sending me some more great offers of her books in the future.
