Publisher's Summary

Olive Kitteridge er hovedpersonen i romanen af samme navn, der giver et billede af livet og dets forviklinger i den lille by Crosby, Maine, men det kunne være hvor som helst i verden. Olive er en pensioneret lærerinde, der står respekt om, og som mange frygter. Modsat sin mand Henry, apotekeren, der kommer godt ud af det med alle mennesker, har Olive en skarp tunge og kan være knortet som et gammelt oliventræ. Romanen fik strålende anmeldelser, er solgt til 28 lande, var blandt finalisterne da National Book Critics Circle Award skulle uddeles og løb af med den prestigefyldte Pulitzerpris i 2009.

Please note: This audiobook is in Danish.

What the Critics Say

"... hvor er den rørende, velskrevet og sansemættet, og den vinder, ligesom Olive, ved nærmere bekendtskab." (Michael Bach Henriksen, Kristeligt Dagblad)

    What disappointed you about Olive Kitteridge?

    My mistake in being so eager to listen to it, that I didn't realise it wasn't in English

    "Wrong book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This was our Book Club book for the month of November. I had read this book 4 years ago and really enjoyed it. decided to go audio because we are doing a character study. This book is in Danish'. I had to order another audio book of Olive Kitteridge in English. So, no, this audio edition did not work out for me at all.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Elizabeth Strout again?

    of course


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jette Mechlenburg?

    someone who narrates in English
