I haven't read either one of these but Olive has been on my list for awhile now. I think I held off on it because story collections really don't do it for me but I know this one is slightly different.

A Bookshelf Monstrosity

I'm also not usually a fan of short stories, but this book stands out to me. I'm a fan of Strout's other work, and I like the idea of the stories' connection to one another. Very thoughtful review! Thanks for sharing this.

You aren't the only one late in joining the bandwagon! I haven't read it yet, but one of my book clubs may be reading it in the next month. I can't wait. It's one of those books that I rushed out to buy, but haven't had a chance to read yet.

I've had this on my wish list ever since I read Booking Mama's review. I'm glad to see you enjoyed it too.


really, really thoughtful, intelligent review.

Don't you just love when books are related unintentionally?!


I loved this book. I thought the writing was pristine, and while the subjects were sad, it did not feel overwrought or overdramatic. I am looking forward to her next book.

I adored OLIVE KITTERIDGE and thought it was an amazing discussion book.


I also loved this book, in fact its my bookclubs pick for November.

Can't wait to read Cost, it's getting good reviews.


I read Olive this summer, and liked it so much that I plan to read Strout's "Amy and Isabelle" soon (it's not in short story form, I don't think); it has high priority in my TBR pile!

Great post on "Olive Kitteridge", by the way!


Great review.


Thanke, Care!


I really loved this book!
