I just finished Olive Kitteridge, by Elizabeth Strout. It has a ton of characters, so it can be a little tough to remember who's who, but I very much enjoyed the book. Essentially each chapter reads as its own short story. They all loosely revolve around the main character, Olive Kitteridge (of course). Each story is very compelling, though. This definitely isn't a book you can put down in the middle of a chapter.
