PDF Ñ En man som heter Ove ¿ Fredrik Backman

A grumpy yet loveable man finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door Meet Ove He's a curmudgeon the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window He has staunch principles strict routines and When I finished reading this book I closed it gently as if the pages were flesh that might be bruised It was hard to immediately identify the sensation in my chest then an exultant vaulting joy swiftly yanked back by the leash of a sorrow still incipient a grief that had not sunk in not just yet There’s a hollowness in me now a rawness that only a novel like A Man Called Ove leaves behindBackman’s singular novel traces the story of Ove a cranky 59 year old Swedish man who has lost his wife then his job—circumstances which to him presented sound empirical argument for gloom Ove’s first suicide attempt is interrupted by his very pregnant and relentlessly blunt Iranian neighbor Parvaneh and her sunny husband who seems determined to aggrieve Ove by not properly parking his car and later for the rest of the novel by a series of comically mundane happenings “that made him sufficiently angry to hold his attention”From this deceptively simple premise Backman crafts a plot so exuisitely intricate and real and fascinating brimming with charm personal wisdom and philosophic insight—all of it adding up to something undeniably poignant but also undeniably pleasantBackman takes on themes of love loss family friendships and their risks and rewards and writes with a confidence and verve that produce magnetic prose and the kind of masterful storytelling that wells up to pull the reader into a uniue and unforgettable experience It’s probably not the best reading material for your commute because you'll undoubtedly find yourself so strongly held in the novel’s thrall that you'll inevitably miss your stop He was a man of black and white And she was color All the color he had The book's biggest triumph however lies in the way Backman handles Ove’s story with a casual mix of tragedy and comedy allowing his readers to experience vicarious joy even when they probe the darkness This adds an unparalleled realness a rawness to both Ove’s character and the story as a wholeThough the story is narrated not by Ove but by a hovering third person there’s clearly some deep sympathy here between the protagonist and the author Ove is both someone you might know and someone you might invent to tell a very specific story and it takes I think a rarer talent to treat this sort of character with not just respect but with boundless empathy and infectious enthusiasmMy heart floundered and scrambled for Ove Ove is not a people person and you’d have to uncoil his DNA to fix that He has a forceful personality and lives by the bullish assumption that any course of action he suggests would automatically be undertaken by those to whom he suggested it And he is just as uncompromising as unyielding in his integrity “There’s a right way of doing things” insists Ove “and a wrong way” But nothing in Ove’s life it seemed happened naturally—only as unavoidable blows like those of a sledgehammer and as memories of his past pile up like yarn under a wheel as we witness how the capricious tides of misfortune which pull people this way and that take special notice of Ove—I felt a gloom so heavy that it was as if I carried a rock in my chestAt the heart of the matter after all is grief and Backman’s explorations of los

Fredrik Backman ¿ En man som heter Ove EBOOK

En man som heter OveHters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove's mailbox it is the lead in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats unexpected friendship and the ancient art of backing up a U Haul All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents' association to their very foundations Argh It’s hard not to start this review with a bunch of expletives because this book pissed me off royally Shit See I can’t even hold it in The cat and the fat were the straws that broke the camel’s back Let’s start with Ove not liking the cat Not liking the cat is one thing For some reason bitching about a cat is supposed to be funny but to me it’s annoying Ove kicking the cat a couple of times cranked my wincing up a notch But there was a way worse cat crime Ove was going to leave the cat to die in a snow bank The neighbor saw the cat and saved it while Ove looked on with annoyance So Ove isn’t just grumpy he’s heartless seriously mean And then miraculously yet still predictably Ove comes to like the cat and suddenly they’re best friends At least the story’s predictability saved me from fretting incessantly about the catCat problem number 2 The author Backman is completely absolutely totally clueless when it comes to cats Cats are known for not being adaptable Yet here is a stray cat; ie probably unsocialized and skittish and scared of people who immediately and happily jumps into Ove’s car and accompanies him on all his errands I mean the cat actually goes into stores with him What??? I’ve met maybe one cat that doesn’t hate riding in a car You usually can’t even coax a cat into the car but if you do succeed the second the car starts moving the cat freaks out And it’s highly unlikely that the cat would follow its new person into a store full of strange people sounds smells and objects; it’s just ludicrous When the cat walked into McDonald’s with Ove that was the last straw And never mind that restaurants don’t even allow pets including Sweden The writer should have made the animal a dog instead of a cat or should have talked to a cat person before writing the bookThe next huge bitch I have is the way the author talks about the big guy Jimmy Ove makes a disparaging comment about the guy letting himself get fat So at first I thought okay so Ove doesn’t like fat people; he doesn’t like anyone so that’s not surprising But I uickly see it’s the author who has a problem When the author first introduces Jimmy he’s referred to a “uarter tonner” who the author says probably tests bacon for a living The author mentions something about Jimmy’s weight every single time Jimmy enters a scene For instance the author says something like “the overweight man gets into the car” That’s like saying every time a non overweight person gets into a car “the height weight proportionate man gets into the car” Not only is it obnoxious that the author points out Jimmy’s weight every chance he gets but isn’t it bad writing to repeat time after time the same feature of a particular character? He’s overweight we get it The author’s prejudices and insensitivities are shining through and they aren’t pretty Jimmy either has food hanging out of his mouth or has food spilled on his clothes or he’s looking for food I hate to tell the author but most overweight people are not slovenly and they often don’t even eat in public His prejudice against overweight people was prominent and infuriatingBut I’m not done Let’s talk about Ove’s transformation First why in
