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.

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.
