I agree that reading "My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry" is a great prerequisite for this one! In this one Britt-Marie becomes even more lovable. It would have been a nice touch to refer to more of the characters in that book in this tale as a way of deeper understanding of her life before Borg.
As always with stories of this nature the readers accent brings much to the story.
Really enjoyed this book - felt like " A Man Called Ove" for a woman. Recommend!! bookwoman & Abby Tabby
First off, while you could certainly read and understand this book without reading "My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry" I think you'll get even more out of this book if you do read that.
I found this book to be a real heart string puller. I may not have all of Britt-Marie's personality quirks, but I certainly understand wanting that feeling that someone knows you were here. As Britt-Marie comes to terms with her new life -- her "coming of age" at 63, as the author puts it, she stumbles onto what really makes you visible.
The book is just so funny and charming and moving and I absolutely love Britt-Marie, Sven, and all the other main characters (well, not really Kent). This may well be one of my favorite books this year.
