What Wonderful Writing

I read the Pulitzer Prize winning "Olive Kitteridge" and was quite impressed. After reading "Amy and Isabelle," I now rate Elizabeth Strout as one of my favorite writers. She writes with such seemingly simply details, and yet the words are evocative.

Could be the most predictable, hackneyed piece of treacle ever written. Every thought and event is telegraphed pages ahead, and the only emotion remaining at the end is THANK GOD ITS OVER. I only read it because my wife made me, and she didn't like it either. Save your money.

    Not a bad story, but drags quite a bit at the end

    The first half of the story was pretty good. You got to know the characters and there was a lot of conflict. However, the author could have stopped the story after chapter 14. The rest of the book seemed to be filler and went on and on and on and on.....
