A Man Called Ove

Purpose. A friend recommended that I read Fredrik Backman’s debut novel titled, A Man Called Ove, and I am grateful for the introduction to this charming book. Protagonist Ove’s world turned upside down four years earlier when his wife, Sonia, died. Ove’s gruff demeanor and blunt social behavior led most to overlook how much sadness was underneath a rugged exterior. When purpose enters his life, Ove seems to turn around or awaken to a life after Sonia. This memorable and endearing character may cause readers to reflect often about grief and having a purpose in life, as well as that frequent reminder: things are not often as they appear.
