A short fuse People call him the bitter neighbor from hell but must Ove be bitter just because he doesn't walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the timeBehind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young dau. Received as an ARC from the publisher Started 5 8 14 Finished 5 11 14 First let me explain what happened to me while reading this book aloud to my wife as she was preparing dinner I'm 70; she's almost 70 I'd read the first page laughed out loud and decided she'd like to hear it read I read we laughed and nodded knowingly then I got to the end of chapter 4 and completely lost it I couldn't continue through those last few sentences My wife said I should uit since she knows that I cry at supermarket openings Now how many books have you read that can cause that kind of a physical and emotional response On the other hand this book is hilarious insightful touching and just plain awesome It seems pretty simple at first but there is depth to this book than any I've read in forever As I got near the end I thought that there really should be a seuel then the plot changed definitely no seuel But I'm thankful I had the opportunity to read this You will too

Update I had planned to leave this post as it is but after seeing the continued kind responses I thought it best to inform you that my grandad passed away just before Christmas Thank you to everyone who commented about this review and about him but it seemed wrong to not let you know It's always hard to lose someone who has been such a huge part of your life from day one but please know that he died a happy old man peacefully surrounded by his family And isn't that the best any of us can ever hope for Emily ♥I'm going to share something with youMy grandad is the very definition of curmudgeonly He's an eighty year old man who likes to complain about anything and everything youth today UK politics my dad the weather technology you name it He calls me and my siblings up most days to tell stories punctuated with rants and numerous bloody hells I'm not worried about him seeing this post because he doesn't trust computers and hasn't even grasped the concept of the internet Most new technology is referred to as those bloody things except for FaceTime which he has recently taken a liking to He makes use of it by popping up on my iPhone multiple times a day to deliver a bout of doom and gloom in which I see nothing on the screen but his chin All my friends are a little afraid of him and are never uite sure when he's joking He is nothing short of a grumpy old man Except in truth that's only half of itThe other day I opened the mailbox to find an envelope which contained this picture of me and him from my graduationAnd with it came this noteThing is behind whatever my grandad may seem on the outside he is a loving man who lost his wife my grandmother several years ago He bugs us constantly with his moaning about life because he's lonely and because he misses us He has a heart and he has a sense of humour even if most people don't really get it And it was in Ove the protagonist of this novel that I recognized pieces of my grandad “People said he was bitter Maybe they were right He’d never reflected much on it People also called him antisocial Ove assumed this meant he wasn’t overly keen on people And in this instance he could totally agree with them More often than not people were out of their minds” I loved Ove Parts of this novel punched me right in my emotions I think I would have been okay if this novel was merely a sad moving tale about a man who has to get on with his life after his wife died I could have shaken off the emotional manipulation as I did with The Fault in Our Stars and not shed a tear But this story is so much than a tearjerkerOve shouldn't be a character we love; he's so miserly and grumpy and skeptical of everything but he's also hilarious He charms us with his completely uncharming ways Because though I don't share his worldview what he says actually makes sense and sometimes it's really funny Take this “Ove glares out of the window The poser is jogging Not that Ove is provoked by jogging Not at all Ove couldn’t give a damn about people jogging What he can’t understand is why they have to make such a big thing of it With those smug smiles on their faces as if they were out there curing pulmonary emphysema Either they walk fast or they run slowly that’s what joggers do It’s a forty year old man’s way of telling the world that he can’t do anything right Is it really necessary to dress up as a fourteen year old Romanian gymnast in order to be able to do it Or the Olympic tobogganing team Just because one shuffles aimlessly around the block for three uarters of an hour” Plus there's a wonderful cat who our lovable protagonist grudgingly befriends which just improves this book even I think perhaps the saddest part of this book is not found in the most obvious place Ove's loss of his wife touched me but I was even affected by the underlying tale of old age and how many old people can be left feeling lonely and out of place towards the end of their lives How difficult it must be to live alone in a world that becomes foreign to you every day with its new gadgets and trends that you don't understand or care to entertain It was moving and thought provokingI'm going to call my grandad nowBlog | Leafmarks | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr
