Like other reviewers, I enjoyed this book. I appreciate all of Backman's work, but I wouldn't rank this one as a favorite. The expanse of character development is impressive, and that I was able to keep everyone straight is a testament to Backman's abilities. I think it was the plot line that didn't grab me as much as his other novels. Still, I highly recommend.
Amazing! The literary skill of the author is superior. Loved this book..
This is a very enthralling tale! Both story and character development are very good and it held my interest throughout. A powerful message about human nature, the pros and cons of a small town and the risk of judging people too soon? Loved it!
One of the most amazing books I've recently read. You will laugh, you will cry and you will laugh again ?
His best book of those I have read so far due to so many things regarding the characters and struggle of life in general. And the narrator simply the best one since I started in Audiobooks.
The story and the narrator brought me into this story and kept me riveted the entire time.
Loved this one, although it was very different from his others. Characters were interesting, and it was a very well written from several different character perspectives.
I enjoyed this book. You will feel like you know the characters personally. I have loved ever one of his books.
Well developed characters and story-line. Very enjoyable.
If you think this is going to be a 'feel good' movie like "A Man Called Ove" or "My Grandmother Wants Me to Tell You She's Sorry", you're in for a shock! This one has shocking darkness and people who are so self centered that they have no morals......
