Shipping News was genius. That Old Ace in the Hole (like the title) didn't make the grade. The sentences were extremely overwritten, too embellished, which made it a chore to read. My mind kept wandering off the page, it wasn't riveting, kind of wandered from character to character. Proulx definitely does her research and her characters are well described but it dulls down the plot and becomes boring once you're into the second chapter. I didn't finish it, too much work. I will stick to her short stories.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
