04112011 - Strange and Sad.
Very sad. I kept reading it ... thinking there had to be a point .. beyond reminding all of us that we are going to die. Sorry, I just don’t think that we need that reminder. Strange and sad.
GrandmaShelly - Olive Again Review
Olive Again was sweet and rather poignant. We get to see Olive in a different light. Now she’s at the end of her life and has become reflective. It’s a place that hopefully we will eventually face.
rohallry59 - Olivia again
Stupid book. After reading thousands of books this is a political and sad one. Sorry
1Charrogirl - Love Olive
Real, beautifully written.
Halkidyounger - Prickly Olive is As Lovable As Ever!
It's wonderful to pick up a book that so immediately and skillfully plunges you into the small, everyday events that make us all human. Just like her first book (Olive Kitteridge), Elizabeth Strout takes us into the orbit of Maine-born-and-raised Olive -- now older, retired, and just as prickly and wise.
Like the first book, this sequel reads like a series of short stories about individuals in and around the small town of Crosby, Maine. Some are Olive's former students. Others, her neighbors. But each has a deeply touching story to tell about the everyday pain people routinely carry, their own resilience, and the kind of love and relationships that brings meaning to our lives.
Whether it's a young woman visiting the burned down ruins of her family home, or a Civil War enthusiast who uses the dog to speak to his wife, or the residents of an assisted living facility struggling to find community -- each has a valuable and emotional story to tell. All of them, connected in some way to crusty but lovable Olive.
Irvingetv - Anticlimactic
If you are looking for a page turning, this is NOT it. This is one of the most boring books I have ever read. There is nothing special about any one character. For the most part, many of the characters lives are painfully boring. There is not a message or overarching theme. Like other reviewers said: this book has snippets of stories from random characters that might be connect to one another? My girlfriend and I downloaded this book because Oprah recommended it but I know realized it was all a publicity hype to sell the book. Well I’ll tell you I am not longer following Oprah’s book recommendations. Also, there are so many grammar issues in this book, it finitely feels rush.

This book was a big waste of my time. No joy reading this book nor did it have anything valuable to say. The prose was simple and not enjoyable.
BrittBrittLew - Good but Not sure how it all ties
Good content but the chapters seemed random and not sure how it all ties together.

koryhud - Boring
Wow - was thinking since Oprah loved it that was a good enough endorsement — so wrong - this book was pointless and boring — just a bunch of snippets of people’s lives - kept thinking it had to have a big point at the end but it did not -don’t waste ur time on this book 🤦♀️
Yoga princess in Santa Cruz - Not a favorite
Struggling to understand the characters
Andasola - We are all Olive
Fantastic writing full of imagery, emotion and depth. Olive is a wonder and Strout lets us peek into her mind and heart. Is she the sweetest person? No. But oh so real, stoic and honest. I adored it.
fatima alsaad - Not what i expected
I like it but not what i expected, i kept reading promising my self that there well come an happily ever after ending to each chapter, put NO. I enjoy reading it any way, and it makes me think about finger prints that i would leave in others lives.
Handakina - Oprah got this one wrong
Really? A meandering tale of inconsequential events leading through the main character’s aging process. Yawn. Dull. No energy, no story. Oprah got this one wrong...or maybe she gets a kickback by anointing the book.
ezdira - Wonderful!
I enjoyed every word of this new book. I missed Olive and was very happy to get her back.
Elizabeth Strout’s character drawings are magical and marvelous!
Cliff's wife - Olive Again
I gave the book a rating of 4. I really enjoyed the book , but would have liked it better if her political views would have been left out.
jdlouky - Not A Fan
For baby boomers only. Found most of the characters to be bitter and boring.
Ristikay - Olive, Again
Moving, humorous, human and relatable.*
*Especially to baby boomers 65 or older.
Adpro22 - Olive again
Not very interesting, in fact boring! I thought it was going to be good because Oprah recommend it. Very political, sad and depressing. Too bad!
HarleyGrandma - She needs to keep her promise
I will not read anything that horrid woman puts her name on. She is a disgrace
Oddities1991 - Interesting commentary on human relationships
And how the culture of individual cities affect a person in their age.
