"The Shipping News" is a great listen. Annie Proulx (who, I just now realized, also wrote Brokeback Mountain) uses beautiful language to describe the smell and feel of her characters' environment. I just loved listening to it especially when I can't sleep. My only criticism is that it ends too abruptly.
"The Shipping News" is a book I could listen to again. I can't say that for the other Audible books I have downloaded. This is moody, serene and engaging novel.
