Be ready for a heavy read. I felt very detached and to me, the expression of emotion here felt very choppy and wooden. Klune is a master with words and his story telling with Olive Juice is stunning. This is not easy to do. As I was getting ready for work this morning I said a small little prayer for the family of those remains, hoping they finally have peace. It needed a narrator who would pull the nuance of emotion and brokenhearted pain and weave it throughout the spoken words without crushing the listener. It will definitely move you.
Please don't read any s Sorry, Tj. So it went wherever it could, that focus. This book is really sad, but what I loved most here is the way the story is revealed, with tiny pieces, until we get the whole puzzle. I want the answers just as much as David and Phillip do, and it's so heartbreaking to see them suffer. Seriously, please don't read any spoilers because you'll miss out on the total emotion of this story. With flashbacks to the past, where life was great, the sun was shining and the unicorns played on the front lawn we were given an insight into how life was…before and it is then that the present really hits home.
I thought I figured out the characters and their pasts, but I didn't for a second think about what David and Phillip were to each other. It leads the reader down a path where we think we know the cliched destination, but then reveals we were mistaken. But in my heart of hearts, I guess this really does deserve 5 stars. Seriously, please don't read any spoilers because you'll miss out on the total emotion of this story. I can't honestly say I enjoyed any of it. Klune break your heart in 130 pages? Place the olives and the liquid mixture in a glass jar with about 4 inches of empty space. Expect for your heart to break and for there to be tears.
Because you have to go into this blind, okay? When I leave those homes I struggle to push the grief off of myself. This is not a fast paced narration. Resist delving for spoilers, and read this book. This book is subtly and beautifully written. His new release, Olive Juice, is all of that. My shields were so high up, in fact, that I barely felt emotion during the story.
Like everything was taken from you. If my heart is going to be battered and bruised, I expect, no I need it to be soothed. I don't want any in my review and because of the lack of detail in the description, there are so many things I can't share. His insecurity was really on my nerves! I will try to be as spoiler-free with this review as I can be, but, honestly, I never put spoilers in my reviews. If you crush the olives inside a bowl, however, the juices will remain.
I am not in the field of psychology nor do I have any experience other than my own therapy sessions dealing with the Need for Cognitive Closure but I recognize it in David. Enjoy these 30 healthy homemade salad dressing recipes. It was raw, heartfelt, and I suppose in away, all about surviving to live another day. I think when it comes to their loss the not knowing is the worse. This will be a completely spoiler free review. Be brave read this, it's less than 100 pages on my Kobo , it's heartbreaking and amazing.
Then it was like taking a deep breath and diving back underwater again. It's about two men finding their way back to each other. Because you need to read this. Because you have to go into this blind, okay? And the immeasurable collateral damage that ensues. So much love and how that can tear someone apart and put them back together. Treat yourself to a relaxing afternoon of browsing their vast inventory of quality fabrics, patterns, and other sewing and quilting accessories. I was trembling every time I turned the page intrigued and anxious as to what I would learn next.
If you crush the olives on a wooden board, some of the juice may end up getting absorbed into the wood. Hubby and I used to dork out saying this to each other in front of our boss who was clueless as to the fact that were we dating. It's almost poetic here which suits the tone perfectly. Well, he just shattered me all over again. Sure, there is shared tragedy here and I must nod sympathetically in recognition of that, but I'll also admit that it just didn't get to me.

There was a lot of pain in this story but also a lot of beauty. It is interesting to me that I gave this book 4-stars yet I couldn't wait for it to end. I have so much I want to say about this book. I shed some tears while reading. Since the author has been known to throw more than one curve ball in his writing career, I went blind into the reading of 'Olive Juice' having zero idea of what was in store for me. What is the book even about? A story about how true love can find it's way even in the darkest days.
