really liked it
Read in May, 2009

I liked the writing and the characters very much, but in the end the action was a bit predictable -- none of the depths and twists that surprised me all through Olive Kitteridge. Which is cool, it's the work of a younger writer etc., and she does get that agonizing mother-daughter dynamic just right. I wasn't disappointed, but neither were my socks knocked off -- but if I didn't have Olive to hold it up against I'd probably be more generous.
