A Man Called Ove would never have crossed my radar except for Heather from Books & Quilts who linked it in to Books You Loved: June and Barbara from Stray Thoughts who brought it to Books You Loved: July
I found this book quite remarkable. It is probably the most memorable book I've read this year – and I've read a few goodies.
What can I say about it without either giving you the wrong impression or spoiling it for you?
· The book was originally written in Swedish but the translation is fantastic.
· The main character is simply spell-binding. I think he taught me quite a lot about the sort of good man that is good through deeds rather than words. Ove is what some might call a grumpy old man – but after reading this book, you will just take him into your heart.
· This book is hysterically funny in parts and very sad in others
· I think this book would appeal equally to men and women
