the details about her house were not that interesting--more reno hell-- but the montana history was interesting.

I might have enjoyed this book, but the narrator irritated me so much I couldn't appreciate the words. I thought the narration was bad because it was the author reading, but it wasn't; it was someone hired to do so.
Well I just finished listening to this book for a second time -- I hadn't recognized that I'd heard it before. This time I didn't notice the narrator. I enjoyed the the renovation stories and some of the animal stuff, but didn't like the history component.

If you have read Annie Proulx's fiction - and you should, beyond Brokeback Mountain - you know that she is not the most optimistic person who ever lived. This is a memoir of her building her house (Bird Cloud) with digressions into everything from ecology to her family history. There is some humour but as always it is just two shades lighter than pitch black.
