I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Strout. However, I think I need to re-read this one in a paper version. The audiobook did not do it justice.
I loved the linkages in this book to My Name is Lucy Barton. It made me want to re-read Lucy Barton. However, I didn’t realize when I started that this book truly is a collection of short stories. Although there are some common threads it is not as cohesive as Olive Kitteridge.
I listened to the audio version of this book and I wish I had read the paper version instead. My Name is Lucy Barton was wonderful as an audio book but with this one I felt the desire to continually page back and forth which isn’t an easy task with an audiobook.
