Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Anything Is Possible by Elizabeth Strout, read by Kimberly Farr.
An unforgettable cast of small-town characters copes with love and loss from the number one New York Times best-selling and Man Booker long-listed author of My Name Is Lucy Barton
Recalling Olive Kitteridge in its richness, structure, and complexity, Anything Is Possible explores the whole range of human emotion through the intimate dramas of people struggling to understand themselves and others.
Anything Is Possible tells the story of the inhabitants of rural, dusty Amgash, Illinois, the hometown of Lucy Barton, a successful New York writer who finally returns, after 17 years of absence, to visit the siblings she left behind. Reverberating with the deep bonds of family and the hope that comes with reconciliation, Anything Is Possible again underscores Elizabeth Strout's place as one of America's most respected and cherished authors.

Sobbing out loud amazing

This was the most deeply moving book ivr ever read. The characters are so carefully drawn with so few words. I cried several times. I liked "my name is Lucy Barton" and
this book is so much better.

Patchwork

Not near her best book but still fascinating. Now more frustrating than before I feel the lack of continuity in her interwoven novellike stories. In Lucy Barton it was more fitting to the maincaracters identity. Now I feel it could be a deficiency in the author.

A good and thoughtful read.

An enjoyable novel as we get to know people who are linked together in some way. Great insight into how our past can effect us in a very rounded and non stereotypical way. Really wonderful people who are lovely to get to know. Explores aspects of shame and snobbery, with some sense of humour. I had not expected it to end (a result of not having an actual book and not looking at the chapters) so was most dismayed to find that there was no more to this tale. So could have had more!

An intricately beautiful collection of characters

Elizabeth Strout has a unique ability to create a whole world of detailed and emotional characters that you can just follow throughout the series of books. While you see much less of Lucy Barton in this book, we see how her family members and people in her community have fared. It seems to me like a modern day To Kill a Mockingbird, especially the part about poverty in areas of America. I'm looking forward to reading the next part.

Loved it

When I first started listening I wasn't sure that I'd be able to handle the minutiae of the storytelling. But in the end I adored it.

My only suggestion would be to listen at 1.25 speed. The narrator is a little slow in her delivery. But exceptional otherwise.

Good read!

I'll for more from this author now. I'll go back and read 'My Name is Lucy Barton' - I presume (but can't be sure) that it preceded 'Anything is Possible'. I'm intrigued.
