 A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

 

Get to know Ove -  a "grumpy old man" who is a "rule follower", has a strong belief in doing the right thing and in being self sufficient.  He is bitter and angry and trapped in a world that he doesn't understand.  His hard outer shell seems to be impossible to crack. But one day a new family moves in and Ove will never be the same.  Slowly the real Ove comes out as the story of his life, both past and present, unfolds.  This is a story of unlikely friends, love, acceptance and giving.  A beautiful read that will change the way you think about life, love and people (who are never what they seem).  You will laugh and you will cry but you will be changed.
