..

This is a book with big heart.
.
.
It makes you Happy ( whatever that means) and after few paragraphs sends you into sort of deep despair for pain filled around Ove.
.
.
Every line is well crafted and cared about and well tendered. It shows that all novels depicting brutality of death, dont always need to be boring and brutal themselves. They can have giggles sprayed all over their plot.
.
.
Its love story of Ove and Sonja, which runs in past but hits at present. Ove is an old block, still stuck in his past and who has stopped living after his love of like, Sonja left him in lonely house.
.
.
It is the war between self made sincere grumpies, and new imbeciles who cannot do anything without help of others and who just want to have lunch all day.

.

.

Ove finds it impossible to make sense of all his neighbourhood and all the abnormal things new middle class is indulging into.

.

.But his new neighbours, an unwanted cat and grave of his wife, Sonja come to rescue him.

.

.
.
.
It is the book, that has big heart ( like ove), has lots of silence ( like ove), always something to construct ( like ove) and tells a lot of jokes ( unlike ove).
.
.
Truly one of the most heart warming book you will ever read.

Every body should read it. It is such a nice book.
