Please note: This is a summary and analysis of A Man Called Ove, not the original book.
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman | Conversation Starters
There is a man who has lost all hope in life. He has been brought up to do the right thing, but has never been able to show much emotion. After the death of his beloved wife, Ove has no reason to live. That is until an Iranian woman named Parwaneh shows up next door with her clumsy husband and two adorable daughters.
Gradually, Ove realizes that as much as he misses his wife, he could contribute something to society and, in turn, gain from other people.
A heartwarming and simple story of a man who finds a purpose in life, A Man Called Ove is humorous and heartrending in equal parts.
