BOOK REVIEW | Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout

4.5/5 stars

From the publisher:
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. 246 more words

So my very public promise to write more frequently was a total fail. But, in all honesty, it wasn’t for a lack of trying. I’ve just been having the hardest time with this post. 2,470 more words

Olive Kitteridge, by Elizabeth Strout

Olive Kitteridge is an interesting contrast to the last book I read.  Like The Underground Railroad, it’s an award-winning book, picking up the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2009.  796 more words
