Publisher's Summary

Funny, heart-warming, charming, surprising, honest, and fresh. Fredrik Backman got his start as a Swedish blogger, but the almost instant success of A Man Called Ove has catapulted him into much-deserved fame. With this debut novel, Backman has undoubtedly written the feel-good book of the year.

Original Book Summary Overview:

A Man Called Ove tells the tale of Ove, a crabby old man who has always found meaning through numbers and order. After his vivacious wife dies, Ove loses both his sense of purpose and the only color that ever existed for him. When he gets let go from his job just six months later, Ove's life ends up following a path that he never could have calculated for himself.

FastReads has pulled out the essence - but only to help you ascertain the value of the book for yourself. This summary & analysis is meant as a supplement to, and not a replacement for A Man Called Ove.
