    Kindle Edition ¶ Olive Kitteridge Epub º olive kindle, kitteridge mobile, Olive Kitteridge MOBI Olive Kitteridge is a Pulitzer Prize winning collection of stories that constitute a novel They are not as closely woven together as the multi generational tales in works by Louise Erdrich another writer who likes to collect small parts into a larger whole but Strout has put together a compelling portrait of a small town I was reminded of Spoon River as we learn some of the

    Kindle Edition ¶ Olive Kitteridge Epub º olive kindle, kitteridge mobile, Olive Kitteridge MOBIToday's the big day my 500th review for Goodreads Drum roll pleaseHmmm No drum roll No compensation No accolades eitherAh hell I don't care I just want to read and write and read and write and read and write and almost every review I've ever written here on Goodreads from the completely anonymous to the refreshingly well received has made me want to click my shiny red heels with joyAnd I don't need to close my eyes and intonate there's no place like home there's no place like home because I could be anywhere in this world and as long as I have a book or a pen in my hand I am homeThere are few living writers today that take me home in the way that Elizabeth Strout does or in the way that Olive Kitteridge did Or I should clarify so few living wri

    Kindle Edition ¶ Olive Kitteridge Epub º olive kindle, kitteridge mobile, Olive Kitteridge MOBII don't uite understand what the hubbub was about this book it did after all get a Pulitzer and TV show However I felt that the writing was ok the narration was interesting but I never even came close to feeling some sympathy or connection to Olive like I did for Updike's Rabbit Angstrom or say Bellow's Dean Corde The New England she describes as anti Semitic and full of silent scandals was interesting and fun in say Updike's Witches of Eastwick It was a little unsettling and disappointing to leave most of the stories in suspension if not all of them and I felt that the Christopher character and his two wives were pretty two dimensional The overall aura was oppressive and depressing I am not sure I would come back to this oneI have now read all the Pulitzers from 2011 and 4 from the previous decade and I'd have to say that this one The Known World by Edward P Jones and All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doe

    Kindle Edition ¶ Olive Kitteridge Epub º olive kindle, kitteridge mobile, Olive Kitteridge MOBIThis novel is definitely about Olive Kitteridge who she is who she was and most importantly the “who” that she sees within herselfHer story is told through a series of connected stories friends neighbours past students people she knows in passing It is interesting and oh so intriguing that many people view her from so many different perspectives yet there are also common threads of viewpointMany of the stories are not about Olive Kitteridge at all yet she moves in and out of each story – sometimes as a presence to be reckoned with sometimes like a wraith sometimes as someone who is or was feared sometimes as someone to be pitied or even scornedElizabeth Strout’s writing is confident and strong as are some of her characters She allows us to feel the

    Kindle Edition ¶ Olive Kitteridge Epub º olive kindle, kitteridge mobile, Olive Kitteridge MOBIAs I write my review I see that there are thousands of reviews already so what can I add Just this Olive joins the ranks of depressing small town short stories a long running theme in American literature so much so that it is almost a genre in itself These stories are set in coastal Maine Olive follows upon Winesburg Ohio by Sinclair Lewis Main Travelled Roads by Hamlin Garlin Village by Robert McAlmon and many others We could call it Winesburg Maine What is the value of such stories I think they show us “So you think you’ve got it tough” How about suicide Or having a son imprisoned for stabbing a woman 29 times Or finding out your husband had been unfaithful on the day of his funeral Or having an only child who moves away and ignores you As I was reading I kept thinking ok the theme is life goes on no matter what; you just keep on living Concurrently I happened to be reading a great novel Portraits of a Marriage by the Hungarian Sandor Marai which I also revie

    Kindle Edition ¶ Olive Kitteridge Epub º olive kindle, kitteridge mobile, Olive Kitteridge MOBIWell this one did not go like I hoped it would might be the first time I wish I could give zero stars Remember I do respect if you loved this book but I must be honest about how it made me feel And this book made me not feel good at all While this came highly recommended from several Goodreads friends I should have known it may not work out when I saw the Pulitzer Prize sticker It seems like in general the books that win the big prizes do not end up being enjoyable for meAlso I listened to this book with my wife The last time we listened to a book together we both agreed that listening together can make any book better Enter Olive Kitteridge to prove us wrong I guess that was pretty much her character anyway so it makes sense if she can be crummy in a fictional world she can get under our skin in real life hence the pic of the alien dude aboveHere are some of the various things my w
