As I began to read the book, I wasn't sure this was the book for me. Last thing I need is a book that will depress me further. But as I read on, I found Ove to be a character of great differences, swinging back and forth between making me weep and on the other hand, laughing out loud. After losing his wife of forty years, Ove contemplates the idea of suicide.
An alternative to this idea arrives in the form of a young talkative couple and their boisterous daughters. Ove doen't like them from the get go, especially after running over his mailbox with their uhaul.
With time Ove makes some unlikely friendships, and comes to become a beloved member of the community. I highly recommend reading this heartwarming tale of love, life, and loss.
