A Book to Read and Love: The Shipping News - Annie Proulx

 


A short summary of The Shipping News:

A reporter learns to live again in Killick-Claw.

My favorite quote from the book:

"One of the tragedies of real life is that there is no background music."


Questions to ponder while reading The Shipping News:

Who has left you broken?

Who has helped you heal?

My thoughts about the book:

A real-life story about real-life people.

Colorful characters and great imagery.

I got cold reading it.
