I didn’t want this book to end. I wanted to keep on reading more about Ove and the situations he gets into. The book is both humorous and sad. It’s written in present tense in conversational tone.
Ove is a curmudgeon who can be both exasperating and kind. He reminded me a lot of my father and somewhat of my husband. (I refuse to consider that Freudian!)
Read A Man Called Ove. If you’ve had a lovable curmudgeon in your life, you will smile at the similarities in Ove. If you haven’t yet experienced a curmudgeon, memories of Ove will help prepare you in case you do. If you’re unlucky enough to never have a curmudgeon in your life, at least you can experience one vicariously.
