Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout

Olive kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout

Olive Kitteridge is the story of none other than Olive Kitteridge, both directly and indirectly, this novel is like a series of short stories involving Olive. It is so cleverly written, each chapter tells a different story about someone from her home town in Maine through their own eyes and cleverly links even the smallest influence that Olive has had on their life so you build a rich character profile for Olive, while being treated to all these snippets of other stories. A brilliant read however dark in parts it portrays the realities of life and growing old incredibly well.

There is also a new sequel ‘Olive Again’ that I am yet to read but has equally fantastic reviews.
