Book Beginnings: A Man Called Ove
Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.
A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman, translated by Henning Koch
"Ove is fifty-nine."
And he's in an Apple store, where being 59 puts one at a distinct disadvantage. And honestly, Ove acts more like he's 79 for most of the book. There are times when it's shocking when you remember how old he is.
