"From the New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove, My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry, and Britt-Marie Was Here, comes a poignant, charming novel about a forgotten town fractured by scandal, and the amateur hockey team that might just change everything. Winning a junior ice hockey championship might not mean a lot to the average person, but it means everything to the residents of Beartown, a community slowly being eaten alive by unemployment and the surrounding wilderness. A victory like this would draw national attention to the ailing town: it could attract government funding and an influx of talented athletes who would choose Beartown over the big nearby cities. A victory like this would certainly mean everything to Amat, a short, scrawny teenager who is treated like an outcast everywhere but on the ice; to Kevin, a star player just on the cusp of securing his golden future in the NHL; and to Peter, their dedicated general manager whose own professional hockey career ended in tragedy. At first, it seems like the team might have a shot at fulfilling the dreams of their entire town. But one night at a drunken celebration following a key win, something happens between Kevin and the general manager's daughter--and the next day everything seems to have changed. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through all of Beartown, leaving no resident unaffected. With so much riding on the success of the team, the line between loyalty and betrayal becomes difficult to discern. At last, it falls to one young man to find the courage to speak the truth that it seems no one else wants to hear. Fredrik Backman knows that we are forever shaped by the places we call home, and in this emotionally powerful, sweetly insightful story, he explores what can happen when we carry the heavy weight of other people's dreams on our shoulders"--… (més)

I listened to the audio version. The author used certain words and phrases over and over and over; if I’d read the book, I could have skimmed them, but since I was listening it got very repetitive and annoying. I was unable to develop the kind of rapport for any of the characters (and there were so many!) that I did with Britt-Marie and Ove. On the other hand, there were some metaphoric gems that made me love the language, especially in the first half. ( )

i anger-read most of this book and hate 80% of the characters in it. the author did too good of a job with the shittiest possible subject. you should anger-read it, too. ( )

I really enjoyed the newest book by Backman. OK, I love the sport of hockey, I do, and wish I had been a better skater. Hockey is everything in the little isolated, down-on-its-luck Swedish town of Beartown. But, this book is about the people in town: the privileged, the poor, the players, the fans, and Backman does a great job making you empathize with some, and loathe others. Friendships, jealousies, love, hate, it's all there. And just as things are peaking, a major traumatic event occurs, changing everything: the battle lines are drawn, but there are surprises as to who goes to which camps. So much better than anything he has written since A Man Called Ove. ( )

Utterly floored. This book will top all the 2017 lists for me and, I predict, stay with me for some time. Backman is a brilliant writer and these pages genuinely moved me. Cannot recommend enough. ( )

I hate Fredrik Backman. He can't write worth a damn. He never makes me feel anything and he never writes about anything I can relate to. He's a big jerky jerk stupidface and he's certainly not a must click favorite author.

But really, he's done it again. He's managed to make me cry on the train in the morning. Beartown evoked so many feelings in me that I almost feel like I need to read it again just to process everything but at the same time, I'm too gutted from the first time around. This book needs to be read, especially given today's, well, everything.

It's a good thing I have some smut planned for my next read because this one needs time to digest. ( )

The bestselling author of A Man Called Ove tells a poignant story of a hockey town paralyzed by scandal. Jobs are disappearing and Beartown is slowly dying, so for its citizens, hockey is everything. Backman asks, “Why does everyone care about hockey? Because hockey tells stories.” This is the story not just of hockey, but of a 15-year-old named Maya Andersson, whose father, Peter, the general manager of the hockey club, loves hockey, but loves his family more. Seventeen-year-old Kevin Erdahl is the star of Beartown, with a chance to go professional. One night, after a huge win, Maya goes to a raucous party at Kevin’s house and is thrilled at his attention, but things get out of hand, and what takes place changes Beartown forever. Lest readers think hockey is the star here, it’s Backman’s rich characters that steal the show, and his deft handling of tragedy and its effects on an insular town. While the story is dark at times, love, sacrifice, and the bonds of friendship and family shine through, ultimately offering hope and even redemption. Backman veers close to the saccharine, but readers may be too spellbound to notice.

For my grandmother, Saga Backman, who taught me to love sports. What a quiet life I would have lived without her. I hope that the big bar in heaven serves proper dry martinis, and that they always show Wimbledon on the big screen. I miss you.

And for Neda Shafti-Backman, my funniest, smartest, more arguentative best friend who picks me up when I need it, and keeps my feet on the grund when I deserve it.
