Olive Kitteridge
Olive Kitteridge | Elizabeth Strout
WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE * THE EMMY AWARD-WINNING HBO MINISERIES STARRING FRANCES MCDORMAND, RICHARD JENKINS, AND BILL MURRAY In a voice more powerful and compassionate than ever before, New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Strout binds together thirteen rich, luminous narratives into a book with the heft of a novel, through the presence of one larger-than-life, unforgettable character: Olive Kitteridge. At the edge of the continent, Crosby, Maine, may seem like nowhere, but seen through this brilliant writer's eyes, it's in essence the whole world, and the lives that are lived there are filled with all of the grand human drama-desire, despair, jealousy, hope, and love. At times stern, at other times patient, at times perceptive, at other times in sad denial, Olive Kitteridge, a retired schoolteacher, deplores the changes in her little town and in the world at large, but she doesn't always recognize the changes in those around her: a lounge musician haunted by a past romance: a former student who has lost the will to live: Olive's own adult child, who feels tyrannized by her irrational sensitivities; and Henry, who finds his loyalty to his marriage both a blessing and a curse. As the townspeople grapple with their problems, mild and dire, Olive is brought to a deeper understanding of herself and her life-sometimes painfully, but always with ruthless honesty. Olive Kitteridge offers profound insights into the human condition-its conflicts, its tragedies and joys, and the endurance it requires. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR BY People * USA Today * The Atlantic * The Washington Post Book World * Seattle Post-Intelligencer * Entertainment Weekly * The Christian Science Monitor * San Francisco Chronicle * Salon * San Antonio Express-News * Chicago Tribune * The Wall Street Journal "Perceptive, deeply empathetic . . . Olive is the axis around which these thirteen complex, relentlessly human narratives spin themselves into Elizabeth Strout's unforgettable novel in stories."--O: The Oprah Magazine "Fiction lovers, remember this name: Olive Kitteridge. . . . You'll never forget her. . . . [Elizabeth Strout] constructs her stories with rich irony and moments of genuine surprise and intense emotion. . . . Glorious, powerful stuff."--USA Today "Funny, wicked and remorseful, Mrs. Kitteridge is a compelling life force, a red-blooded original. When she's not onstage, we look forward to her return. The book is a page-turner because of her."--San Francisco Chronicle "Olive Kitteridge still lingers in memory like a treasured photograph."--Seattle Post-Intelligencer "Rarely does a story collection pack such a gutsy emotional punch."--Entertainment Weekly "Strout animates the ordinary with astonishing force. . . . [She] makes us experience not only the terrors of change but also the terrifying hope that change can bring: she plunges us into these churning waters and we come up gasping for air."--The New Yorker From the Hardcover edition.

Trying to wrap my head around this book. I loved the format of short stories that had a common thread. But then I got frustrated that I didn't know the rest of the story. Olive is such a wonderful, yet terrible, character. I can't give it an extremely high rating, but I put the sequel on library hold immediately, which says something.

⭐⭐⭐✨/⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I'm just over halfway and I'm loving it!
I don't often read very quickly or get so drawn into a book as I am with this one.

So much familiarity in her story and so much to learn about growing up and growing older. So very relatable.

I'm looking forward to watching the series on Netflix with my hubby when I'm done!

In this interlocking series of stories set in Maine, most involving the unfiltered and often off-putting title character, Olive Kittredge, life is punctuated by moments of despair and loss, misunderstanding and profound loneliness. Suicide is a frequent theme. Yet somehow, the final pages hold a life-affirming promise of connection. If there is hope for Olive, as irascible and completely self-unaware as she is, perhaps there is hope for us all.

Decalino Thank you to everyone who liked this post even though I spelled Kitteridge wrong, despite the fact that it's literally in the title of the book. 11mo

A bit late to the party I know, but so glad I read it.. I loved the flawed protagonist.. it really shows that we do not always have things figured out as we get older.. we can still have insecurities and baggage from the past. Loved the characters and small town vibes.. I have read her other series, my name is Lucy Barton including Lucy by the Sea and I will read anything Strout writes as I love her writing!

sarahbarnes I just read this one this past fall. She‘s an incredible writer. 12mo

For me, this was a very challenging read for such a small book. It was difficult to keep going at times. But it was poignant and thought-provoking and often bitter. It‘s not one I‘ll say I enjoyed but it was worth my time.

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 Lives and loves of several people in a small town in Maine over many years. The writing and characters are really good, but I didn‘t realize going in that this is a series of essays/short stories that are each meant to stand alone, although many of the same characters show up. I was getting frustrated trying to keep track of everyone and finally realized I didn‘t really need to. Enjoyable, but maybe a soft pick.

A compulsively readable novel in stories tied together by a fascinating, gray complex character in Olive. I loved “A Different Road” and “Criminal” best. Strout is masterful here in the way she examines life‘s small tragedies in agonizingly intimate detail.

I really shouldn‘t listen to short stories on audio. Short stories don‘t interest me as much, and when I listen to books I sometimes lose focus. When I lose focus while listening to short stories, then return my focus, they‘ve often moved onto a different story, so I‘ve really missed everything. There is really no way to get interested again. That being said, there were a couple of stories at the end that kept my focus more than any of the others.

This is one of those books that‘s festered on my TBR for way too long. So a cold weekend was the perfect time to try the four part miniseries. Amazing story of how hard family can be. Makes me want to read more about it so leaving the book on my TBR to fester a little longer.

This book consists of narratives inside the lives of people from the small (fictional) town of Crosby, Maine. There are recurring characters, of which Olive emerges as a compelling central figure. Olive suffers from depression and the overall feeling of the book is melancholic but hopeful. Strout depicts private thoughts and feelings related to love and loss so insightfully that she brings to life characters that are as real as fiction gets.

This book, which I think is called a novel but reads more like short stories, has a real “Our Town” vibe to it. Olive, the central character, is a prickly woman who can be rude and judgmental and also kind and compassionate. Strout examines mental illness, relationships, and the beauty in everyday life. https://cannonballread.com/2021/09/olive-kitteridge-elcicco/

Linked story collections operate in an amorphous, & interesting, space between traditional novels & story collections. When they work, as in the case of Strout's character study, they often feel miraculous. In Strout's case, it's not simply the form that makes it so remarkable, rather it's the psychological astuteness & honesty of the human condition, the wry humor of the characters, the fleeting tender moments between acquaintances & strangers

vivastory that makes it special. Olive is a complex, & memorable character. Stubborn, stoic & as fearful as others. Loved it! (edited) 2y

I think this book was very well done, but I‘m giving it a so-so rather than a pick because it made me so sad that I had to keep taking breaks from reading it. The rating is based simply on my enjoyment (or lack thereof) and not on the quality of the book. This was book one for the #AwesomeAugust #readathon.

What an interesting structure—a series of stories that reference the main character, Olive Ketteridge. Sometimes the reference is fleeting and in other stories, she is the focus. And at the end, you have a sense of the complete person: baffled by others, but consistently and unapologetically herself. I really enjoyed both this and Elizabeth Stroud‘s writing. 4/5

A bk I have meant to rd for ages + when I did I found it a joy. Through 13 individual stories of a small maine town olive is often centre stage & often merely a passing character but in these glimpses we meet a complicated woman whose life and the numerous tangents it takes create an individual I relished. It is a wonderfully crafted story which I put down wanting to read again having felt every loss and regret that olive experiences. Brilliant 5*

I think Elisabeth Strout might become an “must-read”-author for me …

I am intrigued by the stories she tells. ? Even though they‘re none with plots in a common sense, they are more like accidental observants. It‘s the same it was with ?? “The Burgess‘s Boys” (?? „Das Leben, natürlich“): I love to watch people living. ?

And I might get into the right age to relate to all the trains of thought concerning getting old and see death coming.

I took this #Two4Tuesday by @TheSpineView from @Andrea313 ‘s feed before @RamsFan1963 could tag me. 😂

1️⃣ But Andrea is right, I felt the same, Bella marks for me the beginning of a series of female characters I can‘t stand. This kind of character “I am so strong and independent!”, when in reality they are so weak and childish.

2️⃣ To me, both are equally important but I am willing to tolerate a weak plot if the protagonist is interesting.
