Every now and then you come across a book you really enjoy. A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman is one of those books for me.
On the surface, it’s a grumpy old man story. Maybe that’s why my wife suggested I read it. But, underneath the surface story, it’s a story of love and redemption.
If you’re ever feeling down, like Ove is at the start of the story, reading this book will remind you that the secret is to get outside of yourself. Think of other people. Do things for them. Be with them.
A Man Called Ove is a wonderful story of how Life intervenes to get Ove’s attention and reopen his heart. Some of it is sad, some of it is touching, and some of it is really funny. I enjoyed it.
