Olive Kitteridge – the beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning novel

 

This beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, turned into an
Emmy Award-winning HBO mini-series, is an extraordinary story about an ordinary woman’s life, and a
vibrant exploration of
all that connects us.
T
he story of Olive Kitteridge will make you laugh, nod in recognition, wince in pain, and shed a tear or two.

'As perfect a novel as you will ever read… So astonishingly good that I shall be reading it once a year for the foreseeable future and very probably for the rest of my life.'
Evening Standard

 

Olive Kitteridge is a complex woman. Described by some as indomitable and by others as compassionate, she herself has always been certain that she is absolutely right about everything. A retired schoolteacher in a small coastal town in Maine, as she grows older she struggles to make sense of the changes in her life.

 

Through different narratives, telling the triumphs and tragedies of those around her, and spanning years, Olive’s story emerges. We meet her stoic husband, bound to her in a marriage both broken and strong, and a young man pained by loss – whom Olive comforts by her mere presence, while her own son feels overwhelmed by her sensitivities.

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.
