Publisher's Summary

Dans le lotissement où il vit depuis quarante ans, Ove est connu pour être un râleur de la pire espèce. Mais depuis qu'il est sans travail, il se sent seul et inutile. Il erre dans sa maison, fait des rondes de quartier pour relever les infractions des habitants. Jusqu'au jour où, las de cette routine, il décide d'en finir. Corde au cou, debout dans le salon, il est prêt à passer à l'acte...
C'est sans compter l'arrivée de nouveaux voisins et d'un chat abandonné. Interrompant involontairement ses tentatives de suicide, ceux-ci vont peu à peu pousser Ove dans ses derniers retranchements et le ramener à la vie ! Tel un chat de gouttière amoché et craintif, à la fois drôle et touchant, Ove réveille l'instinct protecteur qui sommeille en chacun de nous. Mais attention, il griffe !

    "Great narrator, wonderful story"

    The main character Ove had a tough life overall, but it's a lovely story about love and loss. Has it's funny moments too. I'll never look at a Saab the same way again!

    Story
    "Loved this book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes... and I have purchased it for my daughter. Can't wait for this authors next book!


    What other book might you compare Vieux, râleur et suicidaire to and why?

    Loved his other book "Ma Grandmere Vous Passe Le Bonjour", hoping to find in french his newest book "Britt Marie was here".


    What does Bernard Gabay bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love listening to books while I walk. Bernard Gabay was easy to understand and added a lot of flavor to the book.


    If you could take any character from Vieux, râleur et suicidaire out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    His next door neighbor-what a loving and kind woman...and tenacious! She never gave up on Ove.


    Any additional comments?

    A definite must read!

    Story
    "J'en veux un comme ça!"

    Ce sont les yeux encore humides que j'écris cette critique. L'histoire et des personnages sont attachants. Je voudrais bien avoir un vieux voisin râleurs et grincheux comme ce Ove. Un livre léger, bien écrit, bien raconté, et qui fait du bien à l'âme. Heureuse de l'avoir lu.
