"Funny, wicked and remorseful, Mrs. Kitteridge is a compelling life force, a red blooded original. When she's not onstage, we look forward to her return..."* And now, indeed, Olive Kitteridge has returned, as indomitable as ever. "It turns out--I just wasn't done with Olive," said Strout. "It was like she kept poking me in the ribs, so I finally said 'Okay, okay...'" Now Olive returns, this time as a person getting older, navigating her next decade as she comes to terms with the changes--sometimes welcome, sometimes not--in her own life. Here is Olive, strangely content in her second marriage, still in an evolving relationship with her son and his family, encountering a cast of memorable characters in the seaside town of Crosby, Maine. Whether it's a young girl coming to terms with the loss of her father, a young woman about to give birth at a baby shower, or a nurse who confesses a secret high school crush, the irascible Olive improbably touches the lives of others. Elizabeth Strout has achieved greatness by brilliantly laying bare the inner lives of ordinary people, by focusing on the small moments of connection which can dislodge lifelong grief and longing, and unite her characters through moments of transcendent grace. Olive, Again is another lasting work of fiction by this remarkable writer, and a cause for celebration among readers everywhere.… (mais)

Once again, Ms. Strout weaves an intricate tale about a seaside town of Maine and its inhabitants, particularly Olive Kitteridge. This story hits home in a very personal way for me because as is expected, Olive ends up in assisted living and the final stories of Olive, her fellow "inmates and the facility itself are right on the mark. My mother has been in an assisted living facility for some time and has gone over the bridge to the alzheimer patient ward. I cried in the last few pages as Olive and her new friend struggle with age and body deterioration.

This is such a lovely book. Thanks to Oprah for making it her selection. ( )

A devastatingly truthful book about real life. I'm not sure I would be able to stand Olive if I met her in person, but she (and others in the stories) tugged at my heart in so many ways. Reading about the struggles of human nature that are all around us, but that are masked by people in everyday life was a healing force for me. ( )

To be frank, this is another piece for the rogue's gallery of "unnecessary sequels". The original novel, Olive Kitteridge, was a complete and satisfying entity, in no way crying out for an extension. And there's nothing new here. Strout follows the same format: a series of vaguely connected short stories, primarily linked through the appearance (sometimes tangential) of the title character. Many of the characters from the first book reappear, their lives often emptier or more defeated, yet finding hope and joy in the most mundane of moments. (I highly recommend these books as audiobooks, as the dialogue works so well in that format.)

Still, it's just such a pleasure to be in Olive's argumentative presence! So, all is forgiven, Ms. Strout.

Llum de febrer és una novel·la profundament commovedora sobre l’amor, la pèrdua, el penediment, les complexitats del matrimoni i el pas del temps.
Eixuta, rondinaire i franca, i, malgrat tot, ha captivat els lectors d’arreu del món. Amb els anys, ¿s’ha endolcit l’Olive Kitteridge? Doncs encara té aquell caràcter feréstec i continua dient clarament el que pensa, però, a mesura que s’ha apropat a la vellesa, la vida li ha canviat. Quan menys s’ho espera, troba un últim company de viatge, al costat del qual seguim els seus intents d’entendre’s a si mateixa, la nova situació que viu i les persones que l’envolten.Amb perspicàcia i empatia, Elizabeth Strout dona veu a un personatge únic que ens parla de la vida quotidiana de Crosby, el petit poble costaner de Maine on sembla que no passi mai res, tot teixint personatges delicats i complexos, però excepcionalment propers, les vides dels quals contenen un món sencer.

En Crosby, un pequeño pueblo en la costa de Maine, no suceden muchas cosas. Y sin embargo, las historias sobre la vida de las personas que viven allí contienen un mundo entero. Está Olive Kitteridge, una maestra jubilada, irascible, indecorosa, de honestidad inquebrantable. Tiene setenta años y aunque es más dura que una roca, sintoniza con los matices del alma humana. Está Jack Kennison, antiguo profesor de Harvard, que busca desesperadamente la cercanía de esa extraña mujer, Olive, siempre tan Olive. Su relación tiene la fuerza de quienes se aferran a la vida. Una novela conmovedora que habla del amor y la pérdida, de la madurez y la soledad, y de esos inesperados instantes de felicidad.

In the early afternoon on a Saturday in June, Jack Kennison put on his sunglasses, got into his sports car with the top down, strapped the seatbelt over his shoulder and across his large stomach, and drove to Portland---almost an hour away---to buy a gallon of whiskey rather than bump into Olive Kitteridge at the grocery store here in Crosby, Maine.

So there was this, too: her son had married his mother, as so many men—in some form or other—eventually do.
Kayley could actually feel a small wave of pain go through her chest at times, and she would think: This is why they say a person's feelings are hurt, because they do hurt.
And it came to him then that it should never be taken lightly, the essential loneliness of people, that the choices they made to keep themselves from that gaping darkness were choices that required respect:
Maybe you fall in love with people who save your life, even when you think it's not worth saving.
I do not have a clue who I have been. Truthfully, I do not understand a thing.
