Upcoming book discussion for the Evening Club on Thursday, February 2nd, 2017-A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman.
Ove is an old man who is recently widowed. He comes across as very bitter and grumpy. Through a series of events he is forced to get to know his neighbors and a beautiful story begins to unfold. I laughed and cried throughout the whole book. This is such a touching story that proves you don't fully understand what drives a person.
