“People said Ove saw the world in black and white. But she was the colour. All the colour he had.”
Title- A Man Called Ove
Author- Fredrick Backman
Okay, where should I start? This book is a Gem. If you haven’t read this book, DO IT.
It is full of emotions. I sobbed, cried my eyes out and laughed like a crazy person. It is one of that books whose effect is gonna last for quite a long time. It will make you laugh like a big laugh and makes you cry at the very next moment.
What I love about this book, is that the end which is not an end but the beginning of a new story. The book does not leave you wondering what will happen next. I hope this makes sense to you.
You will cry your eyes out. Just a fair warning.
After reading this book, I value simple things more than I usually do. Ove is a person with principles. If you don’t have any, you better stay away from him. For Ove, what is right is right and wrong is wrong.
If you read the same line twice, you will understand the deeper meaning behind the line. Now days living a simple life is not appreciated.
The narration is simple. And you will not be able to keep the book down. I’m tempted to say much more but, I don’t want to spoil it for you guys. Read it.
