A Man Called Ove is such a uniquely poignant yet boisterous story and everyone should read it. Don’t get me wrong, you will probably get as many laughs as tears out of this story.
Franqui’s writing and expert storytelling come together to form a novel with a very strong message that truly needs to be heard more often. The novel follows the story of a Bengali widow, Pival, who begins a road trip through America with the ultimate goal of finding her son but also finds acceptance on the way.
A fun read that is light hearted and a perfectly refreshing read for the Spring.
