Description
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 at their very foundations
Description
Una historia repleta de humor, sentimiento y sabiduría, que nos sumerge en el mundo de un protagonista entrañable e inolvidable. La novela en la que se basa la película nominada a 2 premios Oscar. "¿Acaso tengo que andar todo el día sonriendo como un bobo?" Ove no es el típico vecino con el que te apetece cruzarte en el barrio. Es un cascarrabias, un pesado que insiste hasta la exageración en mantener el orden y la disciplina, un casi sesentón solitario y resentido a quien el destino ha arrebatado demasiadas cosas. Sin embargo, en la vida de Ove algo está a punto de cambiar. Una serie de circunstancias fortuitas van devolviéndole poco a poco la fe en el género humano. Y, al mismo tiempo, las personas que le rodean comienzan a comprender que su barrio no sería el mismo sin el gruñón de Ove. Sería un lugar más frío, menos solidario y, aunque parezca mentira, también mucho menos divertido ... porque, al final, todo el mundo quiere a Ove.
