Kimberly Farr has previously narrated two other Elizabeth Strout novels, earning Earphones Awards for both. Her clear grasp of Strout's characterizations and the flow of her delivery are, therefore, not surprising but remain praiseworthy. While named for a single, recurring character--an emotionally unpredictable yet surprisingly sympathetic one--OLIVE KITTERIDGE uses a village of coastal Maine personalities to create its intimate portrait of communal and solitary life. Olive's relationship to her husband and son form the core of the novel, but it's her relationship to the town that binds the disparate stories within this Pulitzer Prize-winning novel together. The many who fell for Olive back in 2008 will be delighted to revisit her through Farr's astute retelling. K.W.
