Words can't describe how thoroughly I enjoyed my time with Ove! This book is a feel-good story that made me laugh out loud on several occasions. The book follows a man called Ove as he recovers from the loss of a loved one. While many wouldn't believe this could be funny, Ove's elderly, cranky, shenanigans had me grinning from ear to ear. While humorous, Ove's tale was also heartwarming, honest, and bittersweet. It makes you think about how even the surliest of people should be treated with kindness, since the reasons for their attitudes are usually unclear. I recommend this book with all of my heart!

“A Man Called Ove by Swedish blogger and columnist Backman is one of those books you read and then want everyone else to read, too. It is also one of those books where you don't dare go into detail about the main character, the setting, or the plot because that would ruin the experience for others. Suffice it to say that the man whose name is Ove is a curmudgeon. He's grumpy. He's cantankerous. And he is a delight! Long may he harrumph!”
