A Man Called Ove Review


Ebook, 337 pages
Fiction/ Humor/ Contemporary
By: Fredrik Backman

“Men are what they are because of what they do. Not what they say.”

🌟 I went into this thinking that everyone was exaggerating about this book. I mean how would I love a book whose main character is a grumpy 59 year-old man. I start this & I think that I was right, people were just being dramatic about Ove, he’s just mediocre. A few hours later -since this is a fast read- my thoughts changes to I AM mediocre and Ove is the best! Gosh, the author made a good job in forcing us readers to like Ove whether we want to or not.

🌟 The author is actually Swedish and this is a translation, both Fredrick & Henning Koch (Translator) did wonders regarding the writing style, I mean there are tons of quotes and beautiful sentences, I even had the urge to learn The language to appreciate the story even more.

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

🌟 This is not about the twists and plot, even when they are there and they’re good. This is mostly a character driven book that will make you relate to all the characters! I expected the ending, but who cares because I think that was the most appropriate ending for the story!

🌟 And believe me this will make you go on a roller coaster of emotions; it will make you laugh, cry, think and finally, you will learn to appreciate life with Ove. So I may start recommend this to many friends from now on!

“All roads lead to something you were predestined to do.”
 🌟 Finally, what type of cars do you drive guys? it may not sound relevant but that is the most important question! (Ove would be proud)
🌟 Final Rating is 4.25 stars
