Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon; the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him 'the bitter neighbour from hell'. But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn't walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time? Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove's mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents' association to their very foundations.… (més)

Við hjónin hlustuðum saman á söguna Maður að nafni Ove eftir Fredrik Backman í stórgóðum leiklestri Hjálmars Hjálmarssonar og skemmtum okkar bara vel við lesturinn. Þetta er gráglettin saga sem segir frá fúllyndum karlfauski sem hefur nýverið misst konu sína og lætur allt mögulegt og ómögulegt fara í taugarnar á sér, en þó sérstaklega nágrannana. Undir hrjúfu yfirborðinu reynist þó leynast hlýtt hjarta sem vill öðrum gott – þ.e.a.s. ef þeir komast inn í gegnum þykkan skrápinn.
Sagan er bráðfyndin á köflum og fær mann til að skella upp úr og fín afþreying en því miður með einum of mikið af fyrirsjáanlegum klisjum. Hún er hins vegar fín afþreying. ( )

I really enjoyed this book a lot. Ove is such a curmudgeon but he has a large heart. He is hard not to love. This is a good feel good book about love, basically. I highly recommend. ( )

Just don't like the sarcastic writing

"He was a man of black and white. And she was colour. All the colour he had."

How perfect is this? It just speaks to my heart.

There is no one who makes me laugh and cry like Fredrik Backman.
I saw the movie in 2015 (which I recommend) but the book is undeniably better.

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

What an emotional roller coaster!

Den svenske suksessbloggeren Fredrik Backman drar oss gjennom en forutsigbar fortelling som trykker på alle de rette knappene inntil vi er trygt plassert innenfor vår egen komfortsone.
afegit per annek49 | editaNRK, Knut Hoem (May 9, 2013)
 
Livet är obegripligt, världen är läskig och det går inte att skydda sig mot den. Fredrik Backman berättar underhållande om botemedlet i sin debutroman.
afegit per annek49 | editaDN, Lotta Olsson (Jan 14, 2013)
 
Genom humorns prisma belyser ”En man som heter Ove” teman som åldrande, vänskap, sorg, livslust och den föränderliga mansrollen. Boken är varken behärskad eller finputsad – delar är återvunna från Café-bloggen och har skarvats in lite slarvigt – men den är en skruvad och gripande romandebut som mycket väl kan vara början på ett stort humoristiskt författarskap.
afegit per annek49 | editaSvenska Dagbladet, Sam Sundberg (Oct 18, 2012)
 
This word-of-mouth bestseller has sold more than 650,000 copies in Sweden and has been a hit across Europe. It deserves to do at least as well here. I loved A Man Called Ove so much that I started to ration how much I read to prolong my time with this cantankerous, low-key, misunderstood man. If you enjoyed Rachel Joyce’s marvellous bestseller, The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry, you will love this book.

Each short chapter of A Man Called Ove could stand alone as a beautifully crafted short story. Bring the chapters together and you have the most uplifting, life-affirming and often comic tale of how kindness, love and happiness can be found in the most unlikely places
 
Backman's tale of 59-yea-old curmudgeon, Ove, not only captured the hearts of Backman's fellow Swedes, but has also swept across Europe as a word-of-mouth best-seller; a domino effect that suggests community spirit and social responsibility isn't quite so lacking as we're often told it is....On occasion the slightly repetitive tone becomes cloying, but Backman can tickle the funny bone and tug on the heart strings when he needs to, and is a clever enough storyteller to not overindulge in either.

For those of you who don't want your fiction to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside, A Man Called Ove isn't for you. Yet it's surprisingly cheering to think how many people have embraced this simple but heartwarming novel.

Death is a strange thing. People live their whole lives as if it does not exist, and yet it's often one of the great motivations for living. Some of us, in time, become so conscious of it that we live harder, more obstinately, with more fury. Some need its constant presence to even be aware of its antithesis. Others become so preoccupied with it that they go into the waiting room long before it has announced its arrival. We fear it, yet most of us fear more than anything that it may take someone other than ourselves. For the greatest fear of death is always that it will pass us by. And leave us there alone.
Another silence, as if two gunmen have suddenly realized they have forgotten to bring their pistols.
Then Mum died. And Dad grew even quieter. As if she took away with her the few words he'd possessed.
Had Ove been the sort of man who contemplated how and when one became the sort of man one was, he might have said this was the day he learned that right has to be right.
He contented himself with remembering that on this day he'd decided to be as little unlike his father as possible.
