This is an author who understands people and watches society closely.... An author who specialises in the unforgettable, outdoes himself and in the process overshoots our rating system.... In the end 5*s are all I can offer but I feel that this is a novel that deserves many, many more.
Impressive [and] heart-warming... there are unexpected delights to being stuck with Britt-Marie.
A brilliant mix of belly-laughs, profound insight and captivating events delivered... with Backman's pitch-perfect dialogue and an unparalleled understanding of human nature.
The bestselling author of A MAN CALLED OVE returns with this heartwarming story about a woman rediscovering herself after personal crisis. Backman reveals Britt-Marie's need for order....with clear, tight descriptions. Insightful and touching, this is a sweet and inspiring story about truth and transformation. Fans of Backman's will find another winner in these pages.
