I LOVED the Shipping News by Annie Proulx, and the premise for this book sounded fascinating. So I bought it as soon as I saw it. The writing is exquisite in its often whimsical detail, but I kept waiting for some kind of story to tie things together, and some kind of silver lining behind the clouds of squalor and human misery. I kept waiting, and waiting, and waiting, slogging through all that misery... but by the second part I gave up because the "tie" or the silver lining never showed up. The narrative was just too depressing.

The discretion of how some of the characters felt about others was hard to hear.
