A Man Called Ove




Synopsis (from Amazon):  Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell.” But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn’t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time?

Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove’s mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents’ association to their very foundations.




One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Loved it....What I thought was a book about a grumpy old man, turned out to be a book about a man I ended up loving.  Through out the story we learn more about Ove and what makes him tick.  Just loved it!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  Yes...can't wait to read Britt-Marie Was Here and My Grandmother Said to Tell You She's Sorry.
