    "Olive Kitteridge is a great compilation about the lives of interesting characters in a small town. Strout tells emotional and compelling stories of interesting characters in the prize winning collection of stories. I would recommend this to anyone who likes an emotional read and not a huge novel."

    "I was surprised by the quality of this work from lesser-known author, Kish. This story is well written, vibrant, rich, and sensitive and the delicate subject is handled with grace. Steve Saunders is a tremendously interesting character. An unforgettable story and definitely one of the best stories of its type I’ve read. It is high on my to re-read list and I recommend it strongly."

    "This book looks to be interesting. It does not have short stories in it. I don't think it fulfills the topic required too much. It does seem like a good book in general though. "
