Rezension

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

Mind blown!

Bewertung aus Wallisellen am 18.02.2021

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

I cannot remember when I downloaded this book - and its sequel, "Olive, Again" - but I clearly wasn't in the right frame of mind and stopped, 1/4 way through. I then picked it up at the weekend again, finished it and started and finished the sequel! The main character is Olive (Kitteridge) who is an awkward, uncomfortable, outspoken to the point of being rude personality, completely unaware of the perception others have of her, with nearly zero introspection of herself, the impact her reactions have on others or the consequences and actions have and will have all her life. Despite all of this, she is so personable and loveable, you just want to know what happens, how her life develops. She lives in a mall town in Maine and many stories of other inhabitants are woven into the book, all with their lives, problems, secrets, just like little cameos. This is a densely woven book with a myriad of characters finely observed and it completely transports you to Olive's world.
