    PDF/EPUB pamyatnik.pro ï Olive Kitteridge PDF/EPUB ¼ olive pdf, kitteridge epub, Olive Kitteridge MOBIfirst and foremost i would like to congratulate myself for finishing this for what i thought would take no than two days to get through; it took about a week A WEEK i read the same paragraphs over and over thinking that perhaps i was missing something something elegant ruminating and unforgettable that the pulitzer board saw which clearly i couldn't but no i wasn't missing anything except for maybe hours of my life ooh i feel like old ladies will see this and hate me but i don't care this book was borrring and lackluster; a snoozefestthere was such an initial appeal to these stories; set in coastal maine how i looove it there and an irrational old miser of a lady to connect them all i was sorely mistaken this time my soft spot for an old crank didn't beat nor did it beat for anyone else around her oh and not only were these stori

    PDF/EPUB pamyatnik.pro ï Olive Kitteridge PDF/EPUB ¼ olive pdf, kitteridge epub, Olive Kitteridge MOBIPosted at Shelf InflictedThis is a collection of stories about a group of ordinary people living in a small town in Maine their joys sorrows tragedies and grief all centered around the main character Olive Kitteridge Normally this is the kind of fiction I stay away from I was afraid it would be an overwrought melodrama about provincial people living in a boring town Yet I was so absorbed by the lives of these people and had a difficult time putting the book downThe characters were very well developed the town vividly described and the emotions raw Olive Kitteridge left me feeling very un

    PDF/EPUB pamyatnik.pro ï Olive Kitteridge PDF/EPUB ¼ olive pdf, kitteridge epub, Olive Kitteridge MOBI Olive Kitteridge is a Pulitzer Prize winning collection of stories that constitute a novel They are not as closely woven together as the multi generational tales in works by Louise Erdrich another writer who likes to collect small parts into a larger whole but Strout has put together a compelling portrait of a small town I was reminded of Spoon River as we learn some of the secrets each of the main characters protects Lake Wobegon came to mind as well It most resembles Winesburg Ohio Sherwood Anderson’s joined tales of alienation in small town America Olive Kitteridge is the organizational core connecting the thirteen stories She appears in each one sometimes as a primary character sometimes as a secondary and in others by one of the characters referring to her Elizabeth Strout from her fans FB siteLoneliness was the predominant theme in the town of Crosby Maine loneliness or the fear of it Most of the stor

    PDF/EPUB pamyatnik.pro ï Olive Kitteridge PDF/EPUB ¼ olive pdf, kitteridge epub, Olive Kitteridge MOBII don't uite understand what the hubbub was about this book it did after all get a Pulitzer and TV show However I felt that the writing was ok the narration was interesting but I never even came close to feeling some sympathy or connection to Olive like I did for Updike's Rabbit Angstrom or say Bellow's Dean Corde The New England she describes as anti Semitic and full of silent scandals was interesting and fun in say Updike's Witches of Eastwick It was a little unsettling and disappointing to leave most of the stories in suspension if not all of them and I felt that the Christopher character and his two wives were pretty two dimensional The overall aura was oppressive and depressing I am not sure I would come back to this oneI have now read all the Pulitzers from 2011 and 4 from the previous decade and I'd have to say that this one The Known World by Edward P Jones and All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

I mean how does she create a book out of a collage of stories linked by one exceptionally prickly ornery yet honest character through writing that is at once complex and invitingly simple? HOW?This 2009 Pulitzer winner is fully deserving of its ac

    PDF/EPUB pamyatnik.pro ï Olive Kitteridge PDF/EPUB ¼ olive pdf, kitteridge epub, Olive Kitteridge MOBIThis novel is definitely about Olive Kitteridge who she is who she was and most importantly the “who” that she sees within herselfHer story is told through a series of connected stories friends neighbours past students people she knows in passing It is interesting and oh so intriguing that many people view her from so many different perspectives yet there are also common threads of viewpointMany of the stories are not about Olive Kitteridge at all yet she moves in and out of each story – sometimes as a presence to be reckoned with sometimes like a wraith sometimes as someone who is or was feared sometimes as someone to be pitied or even scornedElizabeth Strout’s writing is confident and strong as are some of her characters She allows us to feel the full impact of these character’s personalities On the surface these are people we could meet and experience in our everyday lives Elizabeth Strout takes us on a journey that skims the surface and then takes us deeper

Just this Olive joins the ranks of depressing small town short stories a long running theme in American literature so much so that it is almost a genre in itself These stories are set in coastal Maine Olive follows upon Winesburg Ohio by Sinclair Lewis Main Travelled Roads by Hamlin Garlin Village by Robert McAlmon and many others We could call it Winesburg Maine What is the value of such stories? I think they show us “So you think you’ve got it toug
