by Fredrik Backman
Oh my gosh, this book was amazing. It was so incredibly sweet; I must have teared up at least once a chapter. Even though Ove’s character is one who would normally be considered to be a grump and supremely unlikeable, Backman develops his character–from his background story to his inner monologue, to his interactions with others–into a man so endearing, you are instantly swept up in the sweetness of his quirks. I was rooting for him the entire story and it kept getting better and better until the end. I loved it. Can’t wait to see the movie when it comes out!
