A Man Called Ove

“A curmudgeon, a curious cat and a quirky cast of supporting characters make for a delightful summer read in "A Man Called Ove" by Fredrik Backman. Meet Ove, a dark, disinterested in life leftover, desperate to find the peace he lacks. Lucky for Ove, his new neighbors don't know how to back up a U-haul trailer. Or, how to control their chatty, chaotic children. Give it a few chapters to unravel the story line and you'll fall hook, line and sinker into this tale. I laughed, I cried...and, once finished, I cried some more. Definitely a must-listen for all of us wishing we could say EXACTLY what we mean, at least once in a lifetime!”

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 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.
