Review

There is a method to the madness - by the end of this funny and touching book, you'll come round to Ove's way of thinking. * Mumsnet * A charming debut. * People * An uplifting, life-affirming and often comic tale of how kindness, love and happiness can be found in the most unlikely places. * Sunday Express * It's warm, funny, and ultimately almost unbearably moving. * Daily Mail * A warm and tender story about love, loss and second chances, peppered with memorable characters, wonderful set pieces and some beautifully black humour. Ove is a joy from start to finish. * Gavin Extence, author of The Universe versus Alex Woods * It's the most enchanting, beautiful tale. * Ben Fogle * Delightful ... the perfect holiday read. * Evening Standard *
