One of the best books that I read this year is “A Man Called Ove.” It was the first book I’ve read by Fredrik Backman. In the beginning I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy the book. I was quickly sucked into the story and could hardly stop listening. Ove reminded me of my father in so many ways; a crotchety old man who secretly loves people and enjoys helping them. The story made me laugh out loud numerous times. I found the story to be a heart warming story of neighbors and how they can become our family. I’m looking forward to reading other books by this author.
