    by Sandra B

    This is part of my effort to read some good books (Nobel Prize writer) and it is a great book. I
    recommend it.

    We all know someone like Olive Kitteridge and we all have her inside of us. I loved her husband, kind, thoughtful and how he knew Olive. All the stories were interesting and thought provoking. This has to be one of my all time favorite books.

  • Enthralled from page 1 Sep 11, 2010
    by emmarenee1986

    Olive Kitteridge is a novel cleverly crafted out of a series of short stories by Elizabeth Strout. With Olive herself making an appearance in each story, whether as a major or minor character, she is the thread linking all the stories together. With extreme detail and careful description, the reader really gets a sense of the people of Crosby and the town itself, even though these details are spread across stories and span a significant amount of time. It's one of those books that you can wait to finish, but as soon as you turn the last page, you wish it would never end.

  • Pulitzer???? Dec 20, 2009
    by lovesbooks46

    I'm unsure why this book won the Pulitzer. It made for interesting reading--short stories connected through one woman. However, the character wasn't likeable, rather an unhappy and disagreeable soul. I wouldn't recommend it since it left me with an emptiness.

  • Very well written Dec 17, 2009
    by NofellasNovellas

    The seven women in our book club all enjoyed reading Olive Kitteridge. The many ideas and themes in the book led to an interesting discussion. Stout's writing style is creative and insightful. The content of the book is depressing so don't read this if you need a feel good story.
