Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him 'the bitter neighbor from hell.' But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove's mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents' association to their very foundations.

"Curmudgeon" or not Ove is one of the most beloved characters I have encountered in a novel. I see that there is a long library wait list for the paper copy of the book. I thoroughly enjoyed this CD recorded version of the book and highly recommend it ( and there is no one on the wait list now) . The reader on the CD version does a brilliant job of bringing this already outstanding unique book to life. At times the story was so sad, I almost gave up. However the warmth and humour were very uplifting. I loved this book.
