it was amazing
bookshelves: read-in-2016

Oh so wonderful, writing, stories, characters, location. Just perfect. Olive Kitteridge is a difficult woman, but still I loved her, kind of became her, even when she was so peripheral in a chapter, and so in the 'story' where her son points out the kind of person he sees her as, I was as shocked as she is that other people see her in this way.
Some of the stories were perhaps slightly weaker than the others - the penultimate one about Rebecca stealing - for instance didn't touch me as deeply as the others.
Definitely a book I'd like to re-read.
