    A compelling read

    "Olive, Again" is the sequel to "Olive Kitteridge". When the book begins, Alice is a lonely widow in rural Maine. She is is somewhat estranged from her only child, Christopher, who lives with this family in New York. Olive can be judgemental but she is also caring, and readers become invested in her life. Told in chapters which resemble short stories on a variety of topics, "Olive, Again" will stay with readers for a long time after they finish this book. A very good read.

    Olive's saga continues

    Olive, Again continues the saga of Olive Kitteridge from the original book of the same name published in 2008. In this newest book, Olive struggles with her identity, her purpose in life and understanding the world around her as she enters old age. Like the original book, the book is thought-provoking and is made up of a collection of narratives of those who live in, or visit,the town of Crosby, Maine. This book too illuminates some of the greatest tragedies and struggles in life - illness, depression, loneliness and despair to name just a few. I found this book, like the first in the series, to be a little too depressing for my liking. Perhaps I am an outlier, as many love this character dearly. Indeed, some might wonder why I would want to read the sequel to this book having felt this way after reading the first in the series. For me, I was intrigued by the character that is Olive and was rooting for her to find happiness and contentment in her older years. Thank you to Netgalley and Random House Publishing Group for the ARC of this book in exchange for the honest review provided here.
