“Had to put this down once but picked it up again. It HAD to be good reading if it won a Pulitzer Prize, right? This time it grabbed me at the beginning and held me until the end. Strout’s writing was superb. The lives lived by several of the “townies” in Olive’s life reminded me of my friends, neighbors and relations. The author’s ability to describe a landscape or personal interaction with beautiful metaphors and similes had me shaking my head in awe at the skillful use of her craft. Olive is a crusty piece of work. Damaged, flawed and defensive but so like someone I know, I would love to be her friend. She would always tell me the truth I wouldn’t want but needed to hear. And low maintenance! Thank you for Olive, Elizabeth.“

“Wonderful book. Beautifully written. Highly recommended. This is the first Elizabeth Strout book I have read - I look forward to reading her others.“

“Excellent book. I would recommend this book to everyone. Beautiful story. I wish it never ended.“

“No DTVif“

“Love the tempo of her writing, her character development and simply the little zingers she throws in that everyone reading can identify with that you think no one else knows or would ever write about. I've read two of her books and in the middle of her third and don't want it to end. Her books are totally more than just easy summer reading. They grab you be the lapels and drag you in before you finish the first page. Enjoy you lucky new-bees.“

“I got this book based on the reviews... Could not get past the first 4 stories.. Boring, insignificant, unreadable“

“Strangely engaging and haunting. The author makes it impossible not to relate to the human trappings that define and constrain each of us. Certainly not a feel good book, but it will remind you to live, to appreciate that we are nothing more than the sum of our relationships, and how easy it is to allow our insecurities to isolate us. This author could write a recipe book that would be more engaging than most of the crap out there. True talent.“
