A Man Called Ove: Book Review

A Man Called OveA Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ove is a grumpy old man. What you see is what you get. Or maybe not. There’s so much more to Ove, and as this story moves back and forth from past to present, the real Ove is unveiled. This is a man who has suffered loss, experienced love, and has a very unique sense of right and wrong. Beneath his grumpy exterior, he’s a pretty awesome guy.

A co-worker recommended this book. She positively raved about it. I’m so glad I bought it. It’s one of those books I don’t think I’ll ever forget. This is one I’m sure I’ll re-read anytime I need a pick-me-up. Excellent, excellent book.

One thought on “A Man Called Ove: Book Review

  1. A friend also highly recommended this book to me, but the library does not have the eBook (it seems there isn’t one available yet) and the audiobook has 33 holds on it! Now that I’m back in Canada I may need to break down and buy a print copy.
