Great Author, Not best book

by Bolingbrookbookie on Aug 24, 2009

Ths is my least favorite book of Strout's three books. I did enjoy the book, but liked Amy & Isabelle and especially, Ollie Kitteridge much better. I always like the places Strout takes me to and most often I find one character in the book I feel I know. Not this one. So before you read this book of Strouts be sure you read the other two first.


excellent contemporary fiction

by millvillage on May 17, 2007

Abide With Me is one of the bext contemporary novels I've read in a long time. Unlike so many current authors who start with a fascinating plot line/twist but annot deliver a satisfying conclusion, Strout is low-key, but thoroughly engaging all the way through. She creates a convincing character who is, nonetheless, a genuinely kind, thoughtful good person. It's refreshing to see that goodness can be as interesting as perversion.
