And it was kind of weird that I would fall for it, because it was sweet and almost “cute” in a way, and I don’t usually like books like that.
But I loved this one.
I just liked how it was written.
The descriptions were just so good…this is how it described Ove’s mother…if you can read it:
I love how he describes the neighbors, his wife, the cat…there were things that made me laugh out loud and things that made me tear up too.
The stories were so well-written too. I loved this one about how he learned from his quiet, humble father:
But you have to read the whole thing for that story to come alive, because believe me, it is beautiful. Good dads make the world go around I tell you, and I loved how much that dad did for his son with no preaching or yelling or guilt-tripping.
