Publisher Description

NOW A MAJOR FILM STARRING TOM HANKS

The million-copy bestselling phenomenon: a funny, moving, uplifting tale of love and community that will leave you with a spring in your step.

'Warm, funny, and almost unbearably moving' Daily Mail

'Delightful . . . the perfect holiday read' Evening Standard

Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He thinks himself surrounded by idiots - joggers, neighbours who can't reverse a trailer properly and shop assistants who talk in code.

But isn't it rare, these days, to find such old-fashioned clarity of belief and deed? Such unswerving conviction about what the world should be, and a lifelong dedication to making it just so?

In the end, you will see, there is something about Ove that is quite irresistible . . .

'Hilarious and heart-breaking' Stylist

'Rescued all those men who constantly mean to read novels but never get round to it' Spectator Books of the Year

Utterly heartwarming.

Brilliant read. Fills the heart with warmth.

A really uplifting and poignant read

I enjoyed this a lot. Ove’s exterior character comes across as quite negative but inside there is a heart. Also a very good film which is mostly true to the book.
