My rating: 5 of 5 stars
And the string continues…
What a great tale. Backman hits the nail on the head when entering the head and heart of the curmudgeon, and all those around him. He pulls no punches, and brings Ove to life in brilliant color. He’s harsh and unyielding in his assessment of every character, and tender and compassionate in their handling. Every single one. Beautiful.
And again, with the Empathy. I’m not sure how these books keep choosing me, but I won’t complain. There was, however, only one letter employed between the covers, and that at the very end. Thus ends my string of epistolary novels, I guess.
Short review. Brilliant book.
