The Shipping News


3 1/2 stars

I liked this one. It was a great fiction novel about a man who moves back to the family home on Nantucket Island and gets a job as the writer of the shipping news for the local paper. The story is really about his life on the island and how he and his kids fit in with the locals. I enjoyed it so much I want to see the movie. That’s rare.
