    MOBI franzbielmeier.de ↠ The Shipping News Kindle ↠ The Shipping PDF or shipping download, news ebok, The Shipping pdf, The Shipping News MOBIThis book snuck up on me Tricky tricky It started out interesting enough Proulx's writing style is mesmerizing almost hypnotic I found the book initially to be a relaxing solace on my commute home after a busy day of work soley because of its use of language and setting But I hated the characters All of them Quoyle a big damp loaf of a man as Proulx describes him is the definition of pathetic His daughters are brats And his wife Petal is a two dimensional device created solely as a catalyst for the story to come In the beginning it felt a little forced Then at some point in the second half the book went from a nice little read to a ferocious page turner and I still am not sure how it became so compelling There was no melodramatic conflict introduced No secret codes to be found in paintings Instead Proulx builds her momentu

    MOBI franzbielmeier.de ↠ The Shipping News Kindle ↠ The Shipping PDF or shipping download, news ebok, The Shipping pdf, The Shipping News MOBIMy initial review of this book was simply Bullllshiiit but um perhaps explanation is deserved After a handful of people whose taste I respect raved about this book I was looking forward to it and got to page 180 or so before finally admitting This feels like a chore and giving it away and I rarely leave books unfinishedWhat got to me about this book was mainly Proulx's style was tooforced Nothing that occured felt real or believed by the author herself and it's not that I demand realism One Hundred Years of Solitude is one of my favorites It's that I felt like I could see the mechanisms behind all of her tricksthe anecdotes that characters told felt like ideas Proulx kept on a notepad before compiling them together for this novel It read like the final project from a brilliant student finishing a course on creative writing I'm not saying Proulx isn't a good writerbut I don't see her as a storyteller

    MOBI franzbielmeier.de ↠ The Shipping News Kindle ↠ The Shipping PDF or shipping download, news ebok, The Shipping pdf, The Shipping News MOBIThe Shipping News is a wonderful read We are introduced to Quoyle and follow him from his life and failed marriage in Mockingburg New York through to his move and settling into Newfoundland with his two daughters Bunny and Sunshine There is a nearly Dostoyevski level of tragedy underpinning the story sexual assault perversion violence which litters the road Quoyle travels down There are a few innovative aspects to the text itself the names and the grammar Annie Proulx comes up with some of the most original names I have ever seen Tert Card Bunny Partridge and this helps make the text memorable and fun The staccato sentence structure where she often drops the subject is a clever way of dropping us into a pseudo interior dialog inside Quoyle's head These two features give a unique dynamic to Proulx's writingAt the beginning of the story Quoyle reminded me of Ignatius J Reilly from A Confederacy of Dunces both physically and in terms of his lack of career but fortunately for

    MOBI franzbielmeier.de ↠ The Shipping News Kindle ↠ The Shipping PDF or shipping download, news ebok, The Shipping pdf, The Shipping News MOBIThis is my first Proulx so I didn't know if the unusual writing style is typical or specially chosen for this particular story I hope it's the latter as it works very well Update I've now read the collection Close Range Brokeback Mountain and Other stories which I reviewed HERE Those stories use similar language but somewhat toned downIt covers a couple of years plus some backstory in the life of thirty something Quoyle a big lonely awkward and unattractive man always having or doing the wrong thing He is a not very successful journalist in New York who ends up moving with his young daughters Bunny and Sunshine and aunt to a small somewhat inbred community in Newfoundland where the aunt and his late father grew up Somehow Proulx keeps the reader on the fence he isn't especially lovable and yet he elicits sympathy than mockery in this readerI think one weakness is that the mother of the girls is too horrible and the manner of her departure from their live
