    Delightfully warm and funny, Fredrik Backman's A Man Called Ove is one of the biggest word-of-mouth books of 2014 and is sure to delight fans of Harold Fry and The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of a Window and Disappeared.

Surrounded by idiots who can't reverse a trailer properly, code-speaking shop assistants and vicious perpetrators of the coup that saw him ousted as Chairman of the Residents' Association, Ove truly is the neighbour from hell - and his poor unsuspecting neighbours regularly fall foul of his overbearing nature and insistence for following rules. But there's more to Ove than meets the eye...

    Written in charmingly lyrical prose, each of the short chapters stands alone as a beautifully crafted short story and as readers delve further into the book, they will begin to understand that Ove is much more than the grumpy-old-man facade that he portrays. A positively uplifting debut!
