I had the title of this book written down on a list of books I wanted to read, and for the life of me I can’t remember why I’d listed it. But it popped up for 99p on Kindle, I remembered the title, and my finger went straight to the “buy now” button. And having now read it, I still can’t remember why it was on that list. It won the Pulitzer Prize, but I’ve never read a book simply because it won that prize – although I’ve read books that have won it. Olive Kitteridge reminds me a great deal of Marilynne Robinson’s fiction – and I’m a huge fan of her novels; signed first editions only sort of fan – but it doesn’t have the warmth and easy domesticity of her prose. It’s set in small town USA, a foreign country of not much interest to me, north or south, and any familiarity I might have with that world, in broad stroke, is down to a shared language only and the vigorously exported parts of a culture that has pretty much inundated the rest of the Anglophone sphere. The novel is about the eponymous woman. It’s part of a fictional universe built up over several works – in this case, all contained in this “novel”, and a later novel published in 2019. Olive Kitteridge is actually a collection of linked stories, in which the title character appears, either as the PoV character or in a supporting role. She was a maths teacher at the local school, but is retired at the time the novel opens. The comparison to Robinson is not entirely unfair – both writers detail a small community in their fiction, telling the stories of several interlinked families. The Wikipedia page for Olive Kitteridge boasts a complete cast of characters from the book – that’s eight families, and half a dozen assorted other groups. Strout manages to make her characters believable – although one or two seem to be defined solely by a couple of traits – despite the fact most of them only appear for a handful of pages. Much as I enjoyed the Olive Kitteridge, I doubt I’ll bother with the sequel. ( )

This was a reading group book and I didn't think I'd like it as it is a book I would never voluntarily pick up. So to my surprise I did enjoy it quite a lot. I listened to the audio although I did have to speed up the reader a lot as it was far too slow. I thought it was quite disjointed at times but then the appendix explains that as they were all short stories originally and published at different times. Some stories I liked more than others and they were usually the ones more focused on Olive herself rather than those where she is just the hook to hang the story on. I aslo was slightly frustrated at times that we did not find out what happened later e.g the suicidal man, the airport arrest. But it was far more enjoyable than I expected. ( )

The characters and their situations felt very authentic to me. Olive herself was not an easy character to like, but she was complicated and the author did a great job having the reader see her as she is and appreciating her for it. It was a great look at small town life as well as aging and how it can affect people. It was a great book that I would recommend to others. ( )

Each chapter is a short story that includes Olive as a main or supporting character. It's a great format if (like I do) you like to read a chapter in the coffee shop or before bed and then put a book down, satisfied. I warmed up to Olive as each chapter revealed another aspect of her character and her effect on the people in her community. I'm in the stage of life where a lot of it—with its passions and disappointments—is behind me, and that may be one reason I found this book so appealing. ( )

My book club chose to read this book, and I was excited since I hope to read all of the Pulitzer Prize winners at some point. I confess that I found it hard to get into the book until one of my friends said that it was essentially a book of short stories, all tied together through the character of Olive. That mindset changed how I read the book and how I enjoyed it. I found Olive to be very multi-dimensional and complex, and I grew to like her more and more as the book progressed. The chapters truly had the feel of short stories; there often wasn't a great deal of detail, and the reader is left to decide some things on their own, which suits that genre. ( )

Each of the 13 tales serves as an individual microcosm of small-town life, with its gossip, small kindnesses, and everyday tragedies. Not all the minor characters stand out the way Henry and Olive do, and there are a pile of them to keep straight by the end. I also couldn’t quite place how one story, “Ship in a Bottle,” meshed with the rest. But those are small flaws far outweighed by the book’s compassion and intelligence.
 
The pleasure in reading “Olive Kitteridge” comes from an intense identification with complicated, not always admirable, characters. And there are moments in which slipping into a character’s viewpoint seems to involve the revelation of an emotion more powerful and interesting than simple fellow feeling—a complex, sometimes dark, sometimes life-sustaining dependency on others.

For many years Henry Kitteridge was a pharmacist in the next town over, driving every morning on snowy roads, or rainy roads, or summertime roads, when the wild raspberries shot their new growth in brambles along the last section of town before he turned off to where the wider road led to the pharmacy.

Olive had sat in her bedroom and wept like a baby, not so much for this country but for the city itself, which had seemed to her to become suddenly no longer a foreign, hardened place, but as fragile as a class of kindergarten children, brave in their terror.
She showed him the library built the year before Henry's stroke, with its cathedral ceiling and skylights. He looked at the books, and she wanted to say, "Stop that," as though he were reading her diary.
Who, who, does not have their basket of trips.
He wanted to put his arms around her, but she had a darkness that seemed to stand beside her like an acquaintance that would not go away. – "Pharmacy"
Angie... felt she had figured something out too late, and that must be the way of life, to get something figured out when it was too late. – "The Piano Player"
