Teaser Tuesdays #115 – November 22nd: A Man Called Ove

teasertuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS is a weekly book meme originally featured at Books And A Beat. To participate, just open the book you are currently reading to a random page, and choose two ‘teaser’ sentences from somewhere on that page. (no spoilers!)

This book has been recommended to me various times in the past and seems to be everywhere lately. I normally prefer staying away from so-called hyped books, but I’m glad I gave this one a go because A Man Called Ove is about to be added to my list of favorite books I’ve read this year. The writing as well as the main character are simply brilliant. Sure, Ove is grumpy, cranky and doesn’t sound likeable at all, but somehow you grow to love him almost instantly. Ove is turning out to be one of my new favorite characters and I’m sure that won’t change after reading the final chapters today. Looks like I will be adding a new author to my favorites list as well!

My teaser (11%):

“People also called him antisocial. Ove assumed this meant he wasn’t overly keen on people. And in this instance he could totally agree with them. More often than not people were out of their minds.”

What are you reading right now?

    • I didn’t really know what to expect when I started reading A Man Called Ove either, but it turned out to be a brilliant read. Funny and heartbreaking at the same time…

  1. Today, I’ve been reading Margaret Atwood’s Hag-Seed: ‘When Felix wakes up on Saturday at noon he’s got a bad hangover, which is strange because hasn’t been drinking. It’s the brain drain, it’s the energy drain.’
