Summer Reading Book Review: A Man Called Ove

Book Title: A Man Called Ove

Author: Fredrik Backman

Reviewed By: Eileen K.

A great book to remind us of how we touch and impact others' lives. Ove is a man who has faced many challenges and adversities, and after losing his wife (the most important person in his life) he decides life isn't worth living any more. His many attempts to end his life, however, are interrupted by others in need of him, and who he would least expect to form a relationship with. In time, these people touch his heart and form a bond, and in the end, he again finds meaning for his life.

Find A Man Called Ove in our catalog, available in print and large print, eBook, eAudiobook, book on CD, and the movie on DVD.
