Conhecimento Comum



2024-02-22: I haven't finished the first chapter and it's already impressed me with diagnosis of the human condition and the humor used in the diagnosis. My second Backman book and he's pushing everything else off the to-read list.

2024-02-25: I'm at 52% and have I've gone ahead and given it five stars. I hated the bits with Zara because she's a dipshit but this book is hilarious and full of improbable twists and turns and I'm still willing to accept because they're funny and not outrageous. At the same time he's got a great grip on the human condition. And so many great lines.

2024-02-26: The advanced 5-star rating was incorrect but a 6th star is not available. Do I need to downgrade A Man Called Ove in order to indicate the difference?

This was excellent, read it now and learn things. And then that finish! He hit the perfect ending over and over. You'd think it was done and then turn the page to find there was another chapter. And another, and another.

One of my favorite authors. And Ove, a man for every season.

Mr. Backman does it again with a curious little tale of a bank robbery gone wrong - and yet does it? I love how the author can take difficult situations or characters and then show how basic human goodness makes all the difference in the lives of people who feel desperate. Two thumbs up!
