Read in April, 2012

I didn't like this one as much as some of his later work, tho' this novel launched his career and was made into a film.

The lives of the characters are just so bleak, without any redeeming spiritual values, it was hard to watch what they were going through in the small town Canadian setting, replete with alcoholism, teenage pregnancies and unremitting loss and rage.

The ending ties up a bit too neatly, but i won't say anymore to spoil it for future readers.
