@oliviac_h picked this absolute gem for our February book club read.
A Man Called Ove by @backmansk is the story of Ove who is the archetypal ‘grumpy old man’ that just wants to die in peace. However, the incompetences of his neighbours distracts him from his endeavours. And it is these very same neighbours that end up saving his life.
Backman has created the perfect blend of humour and melancholy. Ove’s cantankerous nature and view on life will leave you laughing but the hand life has dealt him makes your heart break.
A truly lovely book with some beautiful words about love and the importance of connection in a world where it is all too easy to be lonely. ❤️📚
