but this book came so highly recommended by my mother, my father, and my husband's mother that I am making time to read this interesting novel. In fact, we have a little family ritual; if my mother and father read a book they both find exceptional/worthy of my time, then they'll send me a copy in the mail. It's fun. It encourages me to read for fun. It also spoils me. My novels are vetted before they arrive in my home.
We don't always agree; my parents enjoyed The Girl with A Dragon Tattoo series; I found it thrilling but way, way, way too disturbing. I stopped after the first book.
I'm already charmed by the first few chapters of A Man Called Ove.
I love me a good curmudgeon.
I don't know where this book is going, but I can tell I'm going to enjoy the trip.
