You might not immediately think so when you read the description of the book but this contains one of the most real and heart warming stories I've ever had the immense pleasure to hold in my hands. This book is in short amazing.
Ove is a bitter old man, or is he? It's very hard to tell you anything beyond what it says above in the description without saying too much and spoiling key points and great moments, but I can tell you this. No man is as he is without reason. There is a background story, there are reasons. In this book Ove's story unfolds and it will touch your heart. It certainly touched mine.
I've laughed, giggled and hiccuped my way through it. I've cried, gone awww and sniffled. It's not necessarily filled with action and excitement, but there is never a dull moment. I heartily recommend it to just about anyone who are looking for something real. It is very very good.
