At first sight, Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He thinks himself surrounded by idiots - neighbours who can't reverse a trailer properly, joggers, shop assistants who talk in code, and the perpetrators of the vicious coup d'etat that ousted him as Chairman of the Residents' Association. He will persist in making his daily inspection rounds of the local streets. But isn't it rare, these days, to find such old-fashioned clarity of belief and deed? Such unswerving conviction about what the world should be, and a lifelong dedication to making it just so?In the end, you will see, there is something about Ove that is quite irresistible.
Ordered the book and my mistake had the incorrect address on it. Emailed straight after letting you know about the change of address, 4 days later got an email saying that email doesn't support replies, tried again and nothing, rang up and nothing, had to request refund via pay pal
Excellent book. Bought after seeing Tom Hanks explain abut the book before it became the film. A brilliant story to give people hope.
