A man Called Ove- Frederick Backman



This was a book recommendation from a friend whom we attend the same book club. Many thanks to you Peter for the recommendation.  It started off slow and felt like someone rumbling, in the beginning. The book had some structural issues hence the reason why I kept getting lost and bringing myself back by trying to read again to get back on truck. This tells me I was yet to connect with the book. I didn’t enjoy the first part of the book. It was boring and made for a tedious read.


 Ove the protagonist in this book, is a grumpy old man, who lives with a cat, in solitude after the loss of his wife Sonja. Underneath a grumpy and cranky old man is a loving and helpful man. The writer took time in developing the characters and in a sense the reader does not easily forget.
