May Book Discussion Group

A Man Called Ove, Fredrik Backman

The book discussion group is reading reading A Man Called Ove  by Fredrik Backman.

The discussion group will meet at 7 pm at the Stanton’s home on Wednesday, May 31.

An inspiring affirmation of love for life and acceptance of people for their essence and individual quirks. A Man Called Ove is a perfect selection for book clubs. It’s well written and replete with universal concerns. It lacks violence and profanity, is life-affirming and relationship-driven. The book is bittersweet, tender, often wickedly humorous and almost certain to elicit tears. I contentedly wept my way through a box of tissues when I first read the novel and again when I savored it for a second time.
