“For the greatest fear of death is always that it will pass us by. And leave us there alone.”
― Fredrik Backman, A Man Called Ove
I loved this man called Ove. I could have spent many more hours listening about it.
This book was not something I would have chosen for myself. I didn’t have it on my TBR. It was a wonderful story.
I quickly found myself endlessly highlighting all the moments that made me laugh, that made me sigh and those that made me cry. I enjoyed the way the story unfolded. The life that Ove was living and the life that Ove once had.
Ove is a cranky man. I adored him and all his grumpiness. He was a man who needed a ray of sunshine to brightened his way. Various people became these rays of sunshine. They shrugged off his crotchety ways and brought back that little bit of happiness he needed in his life.
A Man Called Ove will definitely go on my favorites shelf. I would highly recommend this book to everyone. A definite must read!!
