Taking on Elizabeth Strout

Biblio reviews Olive Kitteridge in a way far more positive than I could bring myself to do.

Olive Kitteridge was supposed to be endearing.  I saw Kathy Bates in both Dolores Claiborne and Misery, nothing at all endearing and much that is freakishly horrifying in her attitude toward others.  But being a mood-driven reader, perhaps I didn't catch this wave.


  1. Absolutely saw Kathy Bates here too. And I found it sort of weird that she kept showing up all over town. Considering suicide? Not with Olive knocking on your car window.
