'I couldn't put it down. Heart-rending and engrossing' 5***** Reader Review

In a large Swedish forest, Beartown hides a dark secret . . .

Cut-off from everywhere else, it experiences the kind of isolation that tears people apart.

And each year, more and more of the town is swallowed by the forest.

Then the town is offered a bright new future.

But it is all put in jeopardy by a single, brutal act.

It divides the town into those who think it should be hushed up and forgotten, and those who'll risk the future to see justice done.

Who will speak up?

Could you stand by and stay silent?

Or would you risk everything for justice?

Which side would you be on?

Amazing .... but ...

This was both a compelling and frustrating read. It was beautifully,almost poetically written and the stories, main and sub, were riveting. However, I found the constant digression from the main story to delve into each character, very frustrating. As if someone was trying to stop me enjoying the main story by repeatedly moving my focus away from it to a less interesting sub story. The book was too slow for my taste. I survived to the end largely by scan reading. Some of the sub stories were relevant but many were not. Never the less, deep respect for Backman for tackling the difficult subject of deep seated misogyny in male dominated sport.
