Reading progress update: I've read 200 out of 368 pages.
A Man Called Ove: A Novel - Fredrik Backman

"He heard Sonja laughing. As if it was pouring out of her, without the slightest possibility of stopping it, like she was being wrestled to the ground by her own giggling. She laughed and laughed and laughed until the vowels were rolling across the walls and floors, as if they meant to do away with the laws of time and space.

 

It gave his heart space to beat again."

 

I'm not crying, you're crying.

Everything about Ove's young years is fascinating so I'm eating this one up. It's so interesting to read about someone so closed to the world, but at the same time so certain about it.

If my judgemental ways had made me miss this book, it would have sucked hard!
A Man Called Ove - Fredrik Backman

I really am a judgmental girl. The synopsis, the cover – all left me eyeing the book laying on my shelf with utter distaste. Honestly, if I hadn’t been on vacation, bookless, and feeling like I should at least read a couple pages to tell the friend that had lent it to me that I tried, I would have missed this fabulous, wonderful read.

 

By the end of chapter 1, I was smiling. By chapter three, I was crying, and then pretty much the rest of the book was alternating between those two states of being. I then handed it over to my husband, because he was now bookless on vacation, too. He does not read these kinds of books. Mystery, fantasy, sure. Dude did not put it down.

 

I adored Ove and Parvaneh and every single one of the characters . There is not a single misstep.  If the synopsis isn’t your thing, then ignore it and just trust me. This is one book you don’t want to miss out on. It’s so funny and charming in all the best ways and ultimately, an amazing affirmation of life and love. This book punched me in the heart – let it punch you.
