This 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 full impact of these character s personalities On the surface these are people we could meet and experience in our everyday lives Elizabeth Strout takes us on a journey that skims the surface and then takes us deeper and deeper into the characters their thoughts feelings the inner lives where all is definitely not as it appears at first glanceThe psychological depths are fascinating because although the spotlight shines on one or two characters per chapter or story it is often in how others respond or react to them that we gain the most insight And it is those insights that gave me further insight into myself and my own family and friendsAlthough this is primarily Olive Kitteridge s story it illustrates so well that no matter how isolated one feels or lonely or oppressed or confused or blissfully oblivious not one of us is an island The world the people in it we are all in motion and that motion has impact ours on others and others on usThis is a novel whose stories can be found everywhere and we are so fortunate that Elizabeth Strout s gift brings us that realization but also envelopes us in our shared humanity and tells us it is okay to be who we are and to continue growing into who we want to be

Posted at Shelf InflictedThis is a collection of stories about a group of ordinary people living in a small town in Maine their joys sorrows tragedies and grief all centered around the main character Olive Kitteridge Normally this is the kind of fiction I stay away from I was afraid it would be an overwrought melodrama about provincial people living in a boring town Yet I was so absorbed by the lives of these people and had a difficult time putting the book downThe characters were very well developed the town vividly described and the emotions raw Olive Kitteridge left me feeling very unsettled I admire her uiet strength her forthrightness her realistic views of life and the fact that she controls her emotions I hate her brusueness her self centeredness and her difficulty with accepting changes She was a complex character definitely not your stereotypical cranky old lady Each story is presented from different viewpoints and shows Olive s many sides as she interacts with family neighbors and friends as she experiences age loneliness grief and love The characters are realistically drawn with such an emotional depth that I found I could easily identify with them and even see similarities to people I know Olive Kitteridge makes me hate those ualities in myself that are like hers and makes me look at others with patience and a less judgmental eye
