A Man Named Ove - Fredrick Backman

Product Description(
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.

MY THOUGHTS:  This is my book clubs choice for June.  I really enjoyed reading this book.  It's an awesome book about the life of Ove.  Ove may be a little grumpy.....well a lot grumpy, but he's also very lovable.  When I started this book I was a little worried it was going to be one of those books I couldn't finish, but the more I read, the more I wanted to find out what the heck was going on with Ove.  Why was he so grumpy, why didn't he want to be friendly with people and why did he want to kill himself?  The story this author tells starts with Ove as a boy and follows him through marriage.  If's an awesome book to read and you find out through reading the book why Ove is like he is.  If you get a chance to read this book, do it, I highly recommend this book.  I give this book 5......

This books is for the Outdo Yourself  Reading Challenge.
