This book was beautiful. With every single story I was enthralled and couldn’t put it down. Started off a little slow but once I got into it I couldn’t stop. At the end of every one I had almost an epiphany about life. Each story makes you think and re-evaluate how you think. It truly is a book about life. While that makes some moments tough to get through, you realize the meaning of each one by the end. One of my favorite books of all time.

Could anyone play Olive except Frances Mcdormand? I saw the series first and actually read the sequel first before reading the original. Hope that Olive again makes it to HB.
Ristikay - Olive Kitteridge
Love this book! The odd thing
is, I tried reading Olive Kitteridge few years ago and had to put it down. The story was depressing. I couldn’t stand Olive. She was a horrible woman, wife and mother. A few years have passed and recently I gave the book another try- After all there must be something good about it if it’s a bestseller and a Pulitzer Prize winner, right?
Maybe the timing had to be right for me to appreciate/“hear“ Olive’s story because this time I read the whole book and was very moved. Elizabeth Strout is an amazing writer!
I immediately went on to read the sequel -Olive, Again. (👍!)
avomaria - Olive Kitteridge
Had to put this down once but picked it up again. It HAD to be good reading if it won a Pulitzer Prize, right?
This time it grabbed me at the beginning and held me until the end. Strout’s writing was superb. The lives lived by several of the “townies” in Olive’s life reminded me of my friends, neighbors and relations. The author’s
ability to describe a landscape or personal interaction with beautiful metaphors and similes had me shaking my head in awe at the skillful use of her craft.
Olive is a crusty piece of work. Damaged, flawed and defensive but so like someone I know, I would love to be her friend. She would always tell me the truth I wouldn’t want but needed to hear. And low maintenance!
Thank you for Olive, Elizabeth.

Wonderful book. Beautifully written. Highly recommended. This is the first Elizabeth Strout book I have read - I look forward to reading her others.

Love the tempo of her writing, her character development and simply the little zingers she throws in that everyone reading can identify with that you think no one else knows or would ever write about. I've read two of her books and in the middle of her third and don't want it to end.
Her books are totally more than just easy summer reading. They grab you be the lapels and drag you in before you finish the first page. Enjoy you lucky new-bees.
L7733 - What?!?
I got this book based on the reviews... Could not get past the first 4 stories.. Boring, insignificant, unreadable
Picky Reader1 - Olive Kitteridge
Strangely engaging and haunting. The author makes it impossible not to relate to the human trappings that define and constrain each of us. Certainly not a feel good book, but it will remind you to live, to appreciate that we are nothing more than the sum of our relationships, and how easy it is to allow our insecurities to isolate us. This author could write a recipe book that would be more engaging than most of the crap out there. True talent.
Jinread - Slice of Life
Each short story reveals a different slice of life through various and varied characters, as they relate to our lead, Olive Kitteridge.
Olive's dominating personality will influence those who revolve in and out of her circle of family and friends, for better or for worse, as we witness their stories.
Olive herself is the most complicated of the characters, and we learn more about her though the years and the eyes of those she is closest to; her family.
We read to enjoy the beauty of language and to learn about the human condition. Reading Olive Kitteridge will not disappoint.
Minie28 - Unforgettable
A book is only a book once you finish reading it and it stays in your mind, but most of all touches your heart and soul. This is a simple book, an easy reading but powerfully written. I enjoyed so much that I did not want to finish. I wish there were more books in the market this touching.
Kyleelou - One of the best
One of the best books I have ever read. Unforgettable characters, fascinating story line, and very well written. Leaves you wanting more. I have now gone on to read all her other novels. Highly recommended.
Lbraceland - Olive Kitteridge
What an interesting way to add depth to a character with separate stories of people who live around her. Very thought provoking. Touched on many issues of the human condition. Very enjoyable.

Each story is a jewel. The superb character development left me wanting more about Olive and her neighbors in Maine.

@ontheh00d Olive Kitteridge. Read it immediately.
First read for June. I read ‘Olive Kitteridge’ last week so I’m moving on to this follow-up. Saw it in The Strand…
@lalibreriadanna @CasaLettori È un romanzo in racconti veramente bello. Pubblicato di recente a distanza di un decennio da Olive Kitteridge.
