Publisher's Summary

Please note: This is a summary and analysis of A Man Called Ove, not the original book.

A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman | Conversation Starters 

There is a man who has lost all hope in life. He has been brought up to do the right thing, but has never been able to show much emotion. After the death of his beloved wife, Ove has no reason to live. That is until an Iranian woman named Parwaneh shows up next door with her clumsy husband and two adorable daughters. 

Gradually, Ove realizes that as much as he misses his wife, he could contribute something to society and, in turn, gain from other people. 

A heartwarming and simple story of a man who finds a purpose in life, A Man Called Ove is humorous and heartrending in equal parts. 

A brief look inside: 

Every good book contains a world far deeper than the surface. The characters and their world come alive, and the characters and its world still live on. 

Conversation Starters is peppered with questions designed to bring us beneath the surface and invite us into the world that lives on. 

These questions can be used to: 

  • Create hours of conversation 
  • Foster a deeper understanding of the book 
  • Promote an atmosphere of discussion for groups 
  • Assist in the study of the book, either individually or corporately 
  • Explore unseen realms of the book as never seen before

Did not like

Just talked about question and answer, no story. Would not recommend. Feel like I did not know this was just question and answer story.

1 credit for only a few minutes

I am very disappointed that I thought I was getting a book. Why would you offer other book samples for free but charge a credit for this one. I thought that I was buying a book.

Where’s the book?

All this was a series of short questions. Where’s the book? Total waste of time...

Wanted to Return it after 7 mins!

I couldn't stand the reader's high pitched, emotionless voice let alone the absence of plot. The repeated question about suicide did not help either.
