Book Review: "A Man Called Ove" by Fredrik Backman



This was a funny, heartwarming and delightful read. Ove was such a grumpy old man, but he reminded me of my dad, who is also very much set in his own moody, stubborn ways. I can picture my own father going "full" Ove in a few years (never go full Ove), so I was entirely charmed by the Swedish gentleman in the novel. His rude and abrupt manner had me in stitches at times, but you soon learn that he's a very caring and thoughtful person, who is just trying to do his best. It was a pleasure reading this book. I cannot recommend it enough!
