Publisher's Summary

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

    "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.
