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.

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

Wrong language

What disappointed you about Olive Kitteridge?

Wrong Language

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I ordered this book not knowing it was in Danish! I already knew the book, so I ordered by the title alone as I didn't see anywhere that it was in a language other than English Can I get an English version or a refund???

What will your next listen be?

Not sure

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

Someone who reads in English!!

Not Narated in English

Very disappointed. This novel is a prize winner which is why I bought it. However as soon as I started to listen to it I found it was narated in another language, possibly German.
