A most amazing book! Loved it from beginning to end.

Elizabeth Strout is an author that has written only three books and I can't wait until she writes her fourth. "Abide with Me" is full of characters that exhibit human qualities that are both good and bad. I loved every page and was sad to see it end.

First Read For This Author

I kept reading this book expecting everything to come together in a neat little bow in the end. I thought the entire book was disjointed and the ending was such a let down. Too much was left hanging.

    not all the great

    The book was slow and hard to get through. The last two chapter were the only ones that seemed to move and a decent pace.

    Not the best.

    I found the book to be an easy read but disappointing slow with no decent resolution. Characters pop in and out of the story without an explanation as to why they are their in the first place. Tyler's depression places the reader in the unique position of wanting to jump into the book and slapping some sense into him. Parts of the book seem to be written to be purposely vague. The ending attempts to wrap up the whole story but by the time the reader finishes the book it becomes not much more than an easy attempt to add some sense of closure to a story with too many holes. The author's attempt to explain the book offered no insight and left me wondering exactly what she was talking about.
