Available from Alibris here, A Man Called Ove is a humorous, heartwarming and thoroughly charming best selling novel – a novel which has taken the fiction literary world by storm!
“Hysterically funny.” – Kirkus Reviews
A Million-Copy Phenomenon
The million-copy bestselling fiction phenomenon, Fredrik Backman’s heartwarming debut is a funny, moving, uplifting tale of love and community that will leave you with a spring in your step!
What’s more, it all revolves round Ove… the main character Ove is 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?
Through A Man Called Ove, which is available also from Amazon here, Ove’s story is wonderfully brought to life in a truly charming and uplifting fashion.
He is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet! He thinks himself surrounded by idiots – neighbours who can’t reverse a trailer properly, joggers, shop assistants who talk in code, and the perpetrators of the vicious coup d’etat that ousted him as Chairman of the Residents’ Association…
Yet, behind the cranky exterior, however, there is a story and a sadness…
Humorous & Heartwarming
During one, ordinary November morning, Ove meets the chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters who move in next door… and accidentally flatten his mailbox! This is the hilarious 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, in fact, will change one cranky old man and a local residents’ association to their very foundations.
A humorous, feel-good story like no other, A Man Called Ove is currently available from Alibris for less than $5 used, and brand new copies are available from less than $7.
“If there was an award for ‘Most Charming Book of the Year,’ this first novel by a Swedish blogger-turned-overnight-sensation would win hands down” – (Booklist, starred review).
