    Description

    Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He isn't as young as he used to be. He drives a Saab. He points at people he doesn't like the look of. He is described by those around his as 'the neighbour from hell'.Every morning he makes his inspection rounds of the local streets. He moves bicycles and checks the contents of recycling bins, even though it's been years since he was fired as Chairman of the Residents' Association in a vicious 'coup d'état'.

    But behind the surly pedant there is a story, and a sadness. And when on a November morning his new (foreign) neighbours in the terraced house opposite accidentally flatten Ove's letterbox, it sets off a comical and heart-warming tale of unexpected friendship which will change one man - and one community - from their very foundations. Quirky and bittersweet, heartbreaking yet outrageously funny, A Man Called Ove is a life-affirming fable for our times.

    ©2014 Fredrik Backman (P)2014 Hodder & Stoughton

    Perfect book

    Would you listen to A Man Called Ove again? Why?

    Yes. It was one of those books that I never wanted to finish. And when finished, I missed Ove and knew it would be hard to find a book I enjoyed as much.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Ove is a composite of people we all have known. He is an ethical curmudgeon but we are ever hopeful for some sign of compassion from him.

    Have you listened to any of Joan Walker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I will now look for other books she narrates. She has become one of my favorite narrators.

    If you could take any character from A Man Called Ove out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Pavana would be an interesting character to have dinner with.

    Any additional comments?

    I listened to this book as I walked in the morning. There were times I laughed aloud and a couple times when I was teary-eyed. When I got home, after my walks, my husband would ask, "So, what's new with Ove today?"

    5 Stars is not enough

    This is one of those rare books you wish would never come to an end. I loved it and will recommend it unhesitatingly. Joan Walker did a fabulous job. I look forward to more from Fredrik Backman.

    I want to listen again!

    I absolutely loved this audiobook. The story is fantastic at combining humorous and serious aspects of life. It's so... human. There was a bit of every character in me, and that was quite enjoyable. The author's style is equally wonderful. This book made me laugh hard and cry subtle tears. The narration is really engaging, and I found the production to be flawless. I would definitely (and probably will) listen to this book again.

    Narrator ruins story

    This book had great reviews and promise but the narrator was terrible and ruined the story for me, I couldn’t keep listening. Will try reading instead.

    Smiled throughout the whole book

    Heartwarming, tender, hilariously funny. I loved every second. The narrator does a fantastic job of bring the book to life.

    Grumpy old man with a big heart

    Reading Fredrik Backman's "A man called Ove" makes you feel good. It is a moving story, it will make you laugh and maybe shed a tear now and then. Sometimes you might fear that it is getting close to become a little bit corny, but Fredrik Backman skillfully stays clear of that. Joan Walker is the perfect voice for this narrative and it is a pure pleasure to listen to her.

    The heart and soul of the story is the grumpy old man, called Ove. When he lost his wife, his world fell apart and he became a broken man. He spends his days, inspecting the neighbourhood for misdemeanors or he is visiting the grave of his wife to talk to her. He became bitter and lonesome and since there is nothing left to do for him, he decides to end his life. Easier that than done, each and everytime he is prepared to do it, somebody needs his help. It might be a small freezing kitten, a helplesss neighbor, who cannot backup his trailer, a neighbor with a handicapped husband and so on. Ove's prickly appearance might fool you, he has a big heart and he will solve the problem.

    All the characters in this story are drawn with so much love and detail, you will be tempted to look for them in your neighborhood. In a way they are stereotypes, but regardless of that, they form an enchanting kaleidoscope of todays urban society.

    It is beautiful story, nicely told and the prose is more than adequate. It is simply a good book.

    schönstes Buch seit langem

    dieses Hörbuch ist das schönste, das ich seit langem - wenn nicht sogar überhaupt - gehört habe. Im Vergleich zur deutschen Version fand ich die englische Sprecherin mitreißender. Für mich ist die Geschichte des schrulligen Ove eine tolle Kombination aus berührend, lustig und herzergreifend. Teilweise erinnert sie mich an den Film Gran Torino und ich würde mich freuen, auch Ove irgendwann im Kino zu sehen ; -)

    Worst speaker/narrator/readet ever

    lovely story, terrible speaker, totally overarticulates everything. The BBC did a "Book at Bedtime" version of this (abbreviated unfortunately) that was a million times better.

    Just lovely!

    This story made me laugh and cry numerous times - and I just loved the characters! Furthermore the reader has a pleasant voice and perfectly 'acts out' the different scenes. What a great listening experience!
