    Great book

    Loved it. Easily the best book I've read this year. I want to see myself as Ove but I know I'm not even close

    Wonderful, Emotional, Beautiful... A must read!

    So I am the type of person, when trying out a new book that differs from the typical genre I read, to go and look at all the reviews of a book, looking for the best and wort of them before making my purchase to know I am not wasting a dime. Ove would be proud of me. And proud again for deciding to share my knowledge with fellow readers. The story of Ove is worth EVERY PENNY. It hooked me from the start and I found that I could not put the book down. I forcibly had to close my e-reader at night so that I could get a decent nights sleep up until I hit 70% read (thanks kobo for having that feature :D) in which I stayed up and binge read the rest. The book is very well written, with vibrant characters that elicit a myriad of emotions within the reader. From fuming at the audacity of a blonde bimbo or a man in a white shirt, to laughing at certain antics of a little kitty... to crying over moments in Ove's life. I loved every minute I spent with Ove and his neighbors, and witnessing his life and will gladly pick up this book time and time again to re-read it over the years to come. I can, with confidence, say that you, fellow review reader, will adore this book written by Mr. Backman. Spend a few days with a man called Ove, and you won't regret it!

    A Man Called Ove

    Really enjoyed this book. Love is the sort of man we don't see much anymore, honest, capable, yet so inflexible he doesn't quite know how to fit into a world without his adorable wife. This is a charming story.

    Similar Characteristics

    Wonderful story of a person with whom I share a certain way of thinking, although I am female. The book was well written and held your interest throughout. Although Ove, on the surface may have had suicidal ideation, he allowed himself to constantly find reasons to live, always because of feeling needed. I loved the way the story ended. There could not have been any other ending. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
