Description

Another wonderful tale from Fredrik Backman! Britt-Marie was a minor character in My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry and got front and center in this book. She is a wonderful character! Backman’s characters are quite quirky, but he nails human nature on the head.

The only thing I didn’t care for in this book was Mr. Backman had to make the seemingly obligatory nod to homosexuality/bisexuality. I’m really tired of that. It was only briefly mentioned and not explored in the character at all or any kind of an integral part of the story. It showed up for what it is ‘political correctness’ or whatever you call it. Disappointed at that.

A Backman book is like receiving a gift, a real gem. If you haven’t read one yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

  1. I have wondered about this writer before but didn't know enough about his books to give one a try. After reading this review, I'm anxious to find a copy of this one.

    Thanks!

  2. Start with a man called Ove if you can. Or at least My Grandmother asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry. You'll be introduced to Britt- Marie in that one and her life with Ken and it will help you understand better for this one. Ove isn't related at all to this one but it was my favorite one so far!
