Journal Entry 1 by wingwaterfallingwing from Raleigh, North Carolina USA on Monday, February 09, 2015

10 out of 10

trade-size paperback.

from the back cover:
At times stern, at other times, patient, at times perceptive, at other times in sad denial, Olive Kitteridge, a retired schoolteacher, deplores the changes in her little town of Crosby, Maine, and in the world at large, but she doesn't always recognize the changes in those around her: a lounge musician haunted by a past romance; a former student who has lost the will to live: Olive's own adult child, who feels tyrannized by her irrational sensitivities; and her husband, Henry, who find his loyalty to his marriage both a blessing and a curse. As the townspeople grapple with their problems, mild and dire, Olive is brought to a deeper understanding of herself and her life - sometimes painfully, but always with ruthless honesty.

I just wanted to know more about Olive within the first couple of pages. Definitely one of the best books I've read in the last few years.
