4.0 out of 5 stars The Stockholmers
By Singh, R. on 12 November 2020
I remember reading A Man Called Ove in 2017 and being smitten by the author’s writing and imagination. I wonder why I didn’t pick up his other books right after that. Anyway, I came across his latest release and decided to order it then and there because I wanted something light, breezy, funny and I knew this author could deliver that to me in a book. The story is set in a small town of Sweden and revolves around the day before New Year’s Eve. After a failed attempt at bank robbery, there is a hostage drama going on in a flat around which the book is set. Following the lives of a host of characters, we witness their sentiments and anxieties evolving with every scene and incident as the plot unfurls. We see their ups and downs, we hear the pain and happiness echoing in their shaky voices, we look at the smallness of life and the immeasurable nature of it as age or time takes control over self. It was funny and a life affirming book. A book that spoke about kindness, and compassion. It is a novel that stops being fiction and speaks closely to us, not in our ears, but to our hearts; how important and beautiful life can sometimes be, even on the worst days. Yes, I have written down praises of this book but I don’t think it is as good as AMCO. I felt the author was ambitious in this book, with too many characters and too many stories. It left little for me to sit with one character and try to know them closely myself. I felt the author telling me all things about life and I don’t like it when an author does that. It begins to seem like a self-help book and I don’t seek that in fiction. I wanted the author simply to show me what lives do these people live. That’s all. However, I do recommend you this book if you are looking for something light and positive. It will put a smile on your face, for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read book
By Abhishek Mishra on 11 April 2021
I always used to think that the best thing about a novel is the plot. I cannot thank Backman enough to prove me wrong. This book is all about characters. A lot of them. Each one being an idiot. And this is a book about idiots.

This book follows a robber who tries to escape after unsuccessfully trying to rob a bank and lands into an apartment viewing. What started as a botched robbery soon turns into a hostage drama.

The plot seems simple but the writing is amazing. A lot of characters are there each with their own quirks and each one is lovable. I don't remember the last time when I laughed while reading a novel. But more than a great comedy, this book is an observation about little things in human behaviour which we all subconsciously do but never understand why we do it at all. This book has an amazing suspense, comedy and amazing truth bombs. This is my second book my Fredrik Backman and I'm in love with his characters, his writing style and the positivity his books emanate. This book is so simple yet so beautiful.

Quoting last dialogue of The Office "There's a lot of beauty in the ordinary things but isn't that kind of point?".

It's a must read book.
My rating 5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
