Publisher's Summary

Former radio journalist and Canadian resident Elizabeth Hay uses her experience to craft this exquisite tale. It's 1975, and the town of Yellowknife in Canada's Northwest Territories is in the middle of a dispute over a pipeline through the area. The small local radio station who reports on the controversy is undergoing some changes of its own. Hard-edged veteran broadcaster Harry Boyd has taken over as manager, and he has his eye on beautiful young Norwegian transplant Dido.

    "Great Can-Lit"

    OK, I have to declare that I am a Canadian first. So the Yellowknife setting and backdrop of the Berger inquiry into the MacKenzie Valley pipeline resonates well for me.
    The Canadian content aside, I found this story has this ability to hold my attention and interest ... despite the fact that it moves at a leisurely pace. The characters in the story are complex, which help weave a rich story line.
    Overall, I found this book has this je n'est sais quoi quality to it. Definitely worth the credit (especially if you are interested in Canadian literature)

    "This won an award?"

    The reading was fine. The book on the other hand is not. I have never been more displeased with an award winning book!

    Here's hoping that my pick for next month's audible download is better than this months.

    "Modest"
    What disappointed you about Late Nights On Air?

    There is too much romanticizing and detailed romance feelings. When I was younger, maybe I were more interested on this type of psychology.All in all, it's about ordinary people doing ordinary things. Some scenes are really cheesy (e.g. remembering all your major events in life while about to die). I couldn't even finish it.On the positive side, there are some nice descriptions of the Canadian North. There is a rare beauty in cold, and snow (think about some Ingmar Bergman's movies).
    The voice performance is fine.

    "Don't Waste Your Money"

    The male narrator was a bad choice and highlighted the shortcomings of the book. It is not worth downloading.

    "Perfect to fall asleep."

    I don't think I have ever not cared for a book as much as this one. I would fall asleep listening to this book and would not even care to forward it back in order to listen to what I had missed while asleep.
