Britt-Marie Was Here: A Novel
Britt-Marie Was Here: A Novel - Fredrik Backman Described on the blurb as a " Brilliant mix of belly-laughs, Insightful and touching I was really looking forward to my 4th Novel my Fredrick Blackman having recently read and loved [b:Beartown|33413128|Beartown|Fredrik Backman|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1482108618s/33413128.jpg|54171514] but unfortunatly Britt-Marie was a real let down as on completion I found it neither witty or touching and am afraid this book was quite twee and dull in my opinion.

I didnt connect with Britt-Marie as a fussy passive aggressive busybody and while I know other readers might connect or empathize with her I just found the story bizarre and far fetched and found myself disliking quite a lot about this book and on completion this one is going in my newly created Dull Shelf. Some of the conversations in the novel left me annoyed and bewildered as the characters actions and conversations rarely made sense and the humor was totally lost on me.

I think having read [b:Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine|31434883|Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine|Gail Honeyman|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1493724347s/31434883.jpg|47327681][bc:Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine|31434883|Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine|Gail Honeyman|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1493724347s/31434883.jpg|47327681] and found it fun, touching and insightful, "Britt Marie was here". just paled in comparrison and therefore a disappointing read for me.

Get Off My Lawn, but Heartwarming
A Man Called Ove: A Novel - Fredrik Backman

People said Ove saw the world in black and white. But she was color. All the color he had.

 

It's funny when you know a book has the potential to make you emotional, but you still get punched in the face by the feels as soon as you finish the last pages. Because to me, that's always when the feelings truly hit. When you're done, and there is nothing else you can hear about those characters.

 

And Ove was an amazing character. He isn't the kind of man one is supposed to love. He is stubborn, taciturn, narrow on his views. And yet he is also loyal, dedicated and very funny with his sarcasm. Ove's heart is too big whether he knows that or not.

 

I couldn't be more happy with the ending, for the familiar and warming feeling of it. I'm glad we got a definitive tone out of this. Ove and all the other characters deserve it. If you've read this, you know he would be annoyed if he didn't get a definitive ending.

 

Did I mention there is a cat? A very sassy, clever cat? If the beautiful storyline and well written characters won't compel you to read this, do it for the cat!

 

 

Sentence: 10 "getting my kindle wet with tears" out of 10.
