      I m between 4 and 4.5 stars here.I don t know about you, but people watching utterly fascinates me It s really amusing to watch the dynamics of families and groups of friends, but what s even fun is making up stories about those we see, developing a narrative about their relationships, challenges, and victories It would be great to find out how far from the truth these stories are, wouldn t it Reading Elizabeth Strout s new collection of linked stories, Anything is Possible, feels like a cross [...]

    5. Angela M on said:

      Elizabeth Strout is one of our best contemporary authors, so I was thrilled to get an advanced copy of this book I was especially excited to read it because this book is a continuation of My Name Is Lucy Barton, which was moving in so many ways I was definitely not disappointed This is a collection of connected stories and probably could be read as a stand alone, but I have to admit that my enjoyment and appreciation of it was enhanced by having met Lucy previously.Some of the unspoken things we [...]

      I haven t read My Name is Lucy Barton but after finishing this I totally want to, also maybe if I would have read it before hand I d have given this five stars I really enjoyed the writing style, I actually felt the difference between chapters when the point of view shifted to that of another character which is amazing in my opinion because everyone has a certain writing style and because of that a lot of the characters end up being written similar enough that you don t really feel the shift as [...]

      Strout has quickly become for me a go to author She creates memorable and complex characters for the simplest of stories.Everything is Possible is an attestation to this She links the character from my Name is Lucy Barton and weaves her into vignettes of the townspeople she grew up with Those who knew of her as she was able to flee the stifling small town and successfully move on from her own sadness and despair Themes of forgiveness, redemption and love of family and friends, because quite hone [...]

      Firecrackers in my soul Socks knocked off AGAIN My feet are cold, but my soul is on fire This collection of stories goes directly to my all time favorites shelf Brilliant, just brilliant I can barely sit still just thinking about it.I wasn t super hot to try this collection, because even though I gave My Name Is Lucy Barton 4 stars, I wasn t all a gush I had loved its subtle tension and its introspection, but I had had sort of a hefty Complaint Board My biggest gripes were that Lucy and her mom [...]

      4.5 StarsAnything is Possible is the sequel to My Name is Lucy Barton and is read as short stories In these unforgettable wise, simple and gracefully told short stories we learn of the siblings and neighbours known to us from My Name is Lucy Barton as they share gossip, judgement and their sadness and disappointments I found My Name is Lucy Barton to be of quieter story while Anything is Possible felt a bit louder with things said as we learn the characters stories of disappointments I found [...]

    13. Karen❄️ on said:

      I loved My Name is Lucy Barton Anything is Possible, focuses on different characters, in each chapter, from Lucy s hometown of Amgash, Illinois There is quite a lot of sadness and pain in these stories, but these characters and their situations were so well written, that I really felt like I knew them I had a few favorites, and I am glad that Lucy made an appearance, and, the way the book ended, wow, what a way to go out Thank you to NetGalley and Random House for an ARC

    14. Debra on said:

      4.5 starsThere is something so wonderfully absorbing and enthralling about Stout s books I am absolutely certain that Stout could write a book about watching pain peel off a wall and I would read it I love her writing I read books and think that they are good and then I read Stout and think Yes Yes Yes I can t quite put my finger on exactly what it is that draws me to her writing She has a gift She is a brilliant Author who can take people and their lives and add a certain type of brilliance to [...]

      This book is a series of related short stories, linked to each other, but also linked through connections to Lucy Barton Raised in extreme poverty, Lucy Barton manages to escape the confinement of her class through education, hard work, and most of all by leaving the environment of her origins Whether the connection is direct or peripheral, the people in this book know Lucy Barton, or know of her, or know people who know people who knew Lucy Barton.Through sadness, contentment, pain, joy, sorrow [...]

    16. Linda on said:

      I read My Name Is Lucy Barton last year, which was my introduction to Elizabeth Strout s writing style All I remember about that book were the feelings it provoked in me unresolved feelings that were all too familiar with my own mother I became so caught up in the strained relationship between Lucy and her mother and the hurt that had been festering all those years that I don t remember any of the people from Lucy s hometown who were mentioned I only remember the small talk, taking the place of [...]

      A masterful collection of nine connected stories They all feature people with origins from a fictional rural northern Illinois community, Amgash, and triangulate with Lucy Barton, who moved away and became a successful writer They were all affected one way or another by one in their midst who survived such abject poverty that she and her two cousins resorted to eating out of dumpsters Now seventeen years later, her friends, family, and former enemies have all moved on in their lives, some change [...]

    19. Esil on said:

      I loved Elizabeth Strout s My Name Is Lucy Barton It was a short tight novel about an author reflecting on her harsh childhood and adult life while lying in a hospital bed with her mother at her side There was something about Lucy that really touched me My expectations were therefore high for Everything Is Possible It s a collection of connected stories that are also linked to My Name Is Lucy Barton stories about people from Lucy s childhood town, bringing a different perspective to Lucy s child [...]

      4.5 StarsOh Boy Elizabeth Strout does it again in this sequel to MY NAME IS LUCY BARTON She takes a group of unexceptional folk and interweaves an exceptional group of short stories as we revisit the small impoverished town of Amgash, Illinois We even get to have a sit down with Lucy herself a somewhat difficult one.Bad times and sad times are in abundance here though with dysfunctional families and their dark personal secrets, but a couple characters actually brought a smile to my face, and one [...]

      I feel so compelled to have your attention right now Have your attention, but not have it for me, or my words or my ego but for you and your soul and for this book of Ms Strout s.Wow Damn it It s been a long time since a book has caused me to feel this agitated, this moved, this conflicted.I had to force myself to walk outside, at a brisk pace, circling my yard several times, before I could commit to sitting down and writing this Even so, I still feel edgy, irritated, worried that I will lack th [...]

      5 Disclaimer Elizabeth Strout is one of my favourite writers and I loved My Name Is Lucy Barton, so I was predisposed to enjoy this And I did She catches people when they are most vulnerable.Lucy, her family and other townsfolk she and her mother reminisced about in the previous book feature in separate stories and occasionally appear in each other s Whether you connect all the dots or not doesn t really matter, but of course when you do make the connections, it multiplies the enjoyment Ah, so T [...]

    23. Hannah on said:

      Connected short stories are a particular favourite of mine so I only have myself to blame for not having started reading Elizabeth Strout s books earlier And after this absolutely brilliant book I feel a bit stupid Because I totally, 100 % adored this and I think I would have liked it even , had I read her other books first There are connections there that I would have enjoyed and scenes that I am sure would have been even poignant This is the only reason why I rated the book with four instead [...]

    24. Liz on said:

      I enjoyed Olive Kitteridge but never got around to reading My Name is Lucy Barton This book, written simultaneously with Lucy Barton, explores the folks still living in Lucy s hometown Like Olive Kitteridge, it is a series of short stories all interwoven around folks that know each other Strout totally gets that small town mentality, how everyone knows each other and not just each other but their entire families And how what someone was like growing up or what their parents did colors how they a [...]

    25. Dianne on said:

      Just stellar, as always Elizabeth Strout, how I love thee This amazing collection of 9 short stories revolves around the community of Amgash, Illinois, the hometown of Lucy Barton, the leading lady of Strout s previous novel My Name is Lucy Barton You don t necessarily need to read Lucy Barton first to tackle and enjoy this collection, but I highly recommend it Lucy s backstory does illuminate several of these narratives.Strout s characters are all loosely connected in some way across these nine [...]

      I expect I ll be the odd one out on this book While I see glowing accolates and many 4.5 and 5 star reviews, I just had a hard time connecting with it I cannot put my finger on the exact reason Strout s My Name Is Lucy Barton was extraordinary, and this book is written in a similar vein Strout takes us to Lucy s hometown where we meet people from her past as well as her siblings Every person is so completely human flawed, imperfect, and in this book, profoundly sad perhaps that was my issue Righ [...]

    29. Jill on said:

      Anything Is Possible another radiant novel by Elizabeth Strout reminds me, in certain ways, of the Oscar winning movie Crash interlocking stories of men and women who are defined in one way or the other, not of racism, but of class bias All are victims of it, and all are guilty of it And though we understand who these characters are and what their lives are like, we have no idea of how they will behave.The nucleus, in these stories, is Lucy Barton, who readers met in Ms Strout s last book, My Na [...]
