Ove is a very grouchy,depressed man of 59. Over the course of this novel we learn why he is testy and the very good qualities he also has. He lives in a row house in Sweden and luckily for him, some new neighbors, Parvaneh and Patrick and their two children, move in next door. Definitely a charming, feel-good book about the redemptive power of love and relationships in the manner of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
RATING: * * * * Very, very good
