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.

It was very hard to keep listening to this book. The story was shallow and depressing. The end was crazy with all the money that had been in the accordion but it never helped all the people who had it. The reader was not good. He had to pause to breath. It was hard to listen to.
