Stepping from the pages of Fredrik Backman's international best-selling novel, this is a heart-warming tale about a stubborn, short-tempered man with steadfast beliefs, strict routines and the feeling that everyone around him is an idiot — and no reticence about telling them so. After boisterous new neighbours accidentally run over his mailbox, the cantankerous old git’s solitary, regimented world is shaken in ways he would never have imagined. What emerges is a gratifying tale of unreliable first impressions and the gentle reminder that life is sweeter when it's shared.
Imagine if Frank Capra (It's a Wonderful Life) was around to tell his stories of kindness and compassion, but in a credible, contemporary setting: add a dash of wicked humour, and this is the great success of A Man Called Ove. Enjoy!
