    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.

    Old renderings. Alone. Lonely.

    Stuff happens. Life goes on and then people you know die and those you raised move far away. What is it like to grow old? It is to be alone, feel uncertain, unsafe, impatient, unkind and then empathetic, fearful, afraid, needy, angry, eroding physically, and eventually accepting of one's mortality. Well written. Excellent character development that in spite of the plot keeps you curiously and aptly engaged. Similar to rubbernecking a fatal accident unable to stop yourself from staring.

    So glad to visit with Olive, again!

    If you loved the original character, Olive Kitteridge (I did), and if you enjoy Elizabeth Strout’s writing Style (I do), and especially if Olive reminded you of someone quirky - or aging - that you have loved (she did), it’s wonderful.

    Can’t wait to read the 1st book

    Read it on Oprah’s recommendation. What a caracter, didn’t deceive. The human nature, honestly and authenticity of Olive is so refreshing. Through the reviews, I discovered there was a 1rst book, will be looking forward to reading it and more from Elizabeth Strout
