I have a lot of time to read so I figured why not pass on my reviews on novels, non fiction and travel books and apps. I hope it helps you find something to calm your day like reading does for me.
I have just red A Man Called Ove - OMG so so SO funny. I kept laughing out loud constantly and then cried like a little girl at the end. One of the BEST books I've read in years. Don't miss it. It's stunningly great.
It's a unique blend of normality and outstandingly inappropriate comments. Its everything you have ever wanted to say out loud but society bullied out of you.
Ove is a grumpy old man who is trying to commit suicide after his wife dies. Unfortunately (or fortunately) for Ove he keeps getting interrupted. The current story is paralleled in the background by the life story of Ove and his wife. It is brutal in its truths and PLEASE don't let the premise of Ove trying to commit suicide put you off. It is without a doubt one of the best stories I've ever read. Love the cat!
I have just downloaded his second book and am forcing myself to finish what I've started first before I start on that but its tortuous. I know its on my reader calling me....
I really love reading, however I read to escape mostly & while I did read Che Guevera's diaries (I was in Cuba at the time) most of my reading is lightweight and fast paced.
