Prickly, crooked, resistant to change but ruthlessly honest and deeply empathetic, Olive Kitteridge is “an irresistible life force” (San Francisco Chronicle).
The New Yorker has said that the Elizabeth Strout “animates the ordinary with amazing power,” and she has never done so much more clearly than in these pages, where the iconic Olive struggles to understand not just herself and her own life, but also the life of these. around him in the town of Crosby, Maine.

Olive Again Book Pdf Download
I read this book because I obviously loved Olive in the previous book. Olive is a difficult, outspoken, and opinionated woman who speaks her mind and forms uninformed opinions of everyone she meets. She is definitely not adorable, and yet we had come to love her.
Olive hardly appears in this book. And the last note of hope and peace that you find at the end of the first book is immediately removed from this one. It only comes up towards the end. Especially at the beginning of this novel, a lot of profanity is said by the characters, baseless and unnecessary profanity. And Olive is in no way charming or endearing. And virtually all of the characters who tell their stories have the saddest, most desperate stories imaginable.
Sometimes there is a little positive tone at the end of their recitation, but that’s all they give you after enduring the previous desperate anecdote. And he wasn’t sure what the author expected of him. That life just sucks? You can do your best and you are being abused or neglected and there is no other way but that? Honestly, if that’s all life can be or hope for, then it’s no wonder Olive is so mean. And the first half of the book, most of the descriptions Olive makes internally about everyone she meets is usually about the size of her butt or belly falling on the table.
Real body embarrassing bullshit that’s pretty outrageous. I was glad I got to the end because Olive comes to the conclusion that she makes assumptions about people based on something as absurd as the fact that they’re from New York. (and this is obviously wrong in his opinion). Eventually, and I mean finally, Olive finds some peace and friends in an assisted living facility and concludes (and I’ve stressed it): “I have no idea who I’ve been. I really don’t understand anything.”
I think the author wanted to end the beautiful book about Olive with a story about ending a life like Olive. And when you’re ready, read this book. Death and the end of a life are rarely really discussed in our country. And it’s certainly an issue that everyone needs to grapple with.
The main theme of this book is that. And more. This book is about death from the perspective of someone who almost certainly lives at odds with the world and alienates most people he meets, though his honesty sometimes comfortably breaks through people’s defenses. It’s about Olive’s loneliness and her relationship with her son, which has been a disappointment for much of her life. I was glad that the relationship had healed somewhat by the end of the book.
I think everyone should read this book so that before we meet our end, our end of life will be connected more peacefully. I don’t know if that was meant as a warning, but it has to be. Because virtually every character on the Periphery is their own warning in this story.
