September Reading – A Man Called Ove

Standard

img_1596   This is  a wonderful read. Fredrick Backman, a Swedish blogger, columnist, creates a story filled with emotion. In my mind, I saw Paul Newman or Walter Matthau as Ove. A crawchty old man with little in his life until he starts to meet his neighbors. I’m looking forward to having this discussion. Reader’s guide from Simon and Schuester here.

The movie the trailer is here.

Release date is set for September 30, 2016 but that may not be in our fair city; as tends to be the case with foreign films. So if it doesn’t come within our reach soon, we may have to wait for the dvd release December 27,2016. Having a watch party may be a reason for a special edition book club meeting.
