Have I mentioned I have a soft spot for grumpy old men? Well I do and Ove is a great example.
Ove lives in Sweden and wakes up each morning with the plan to commit suicide. Every day he is thwarted by insufferable neighbors. Throughout the book we understand what has made Ove so grumpy and why he wants to end his life, we also see Ove coming back to life and learning to live and let go.
A very accessible book, and one that I jumped right into.
