    CHARACTERS Ä Björnstad BjörnstadI'm sure anyone who has either read this book or heard anything about it by now realizes this is a huge departure for Backman from his usual tale About a month ago I was recording a podcast with the lovely Anne Bogel and one of the recommendations she gave me was to read Beartown While we all know Backman for his uplifting fiction that is both touching and emotional this was described to me as a serious heavy read that lacked his whimsical trademark There are few things I love than reading a book that is w

    CHARACTERS Ä Björnstad BjörnstadWow Just wow Every once in a while you stumble upon a book that takes you by surprise becoming far meaningful than you ever anticipated 'Beartown' is precisely that type of book Bravo Mr Backman When 'Beartown' first started showing up on so many of my friends' feeds I was mildly curious Not being a sports fan by any stretch of the imagination I filed it away in the back of my mind in the maybe one day category Knowing only that it centered on a junior hockey team in a small town I had envisioned something akin to 'The Mighty Ducks' played out on paperHowever as the 5 star reviews kept rolling in I grew increasingly interested I had to see what all the buzz was about After all there's no way that 'The Mighty Ducks' would stir up that type of a response So I downloaded the Audible version and bumped it to the top of m

    CHARACTERS Ä Björnstad BjörnstadI'm the outlier again I guess I DID like this but didn't love it as many readers clearly did Backman certainly has a gift for developing characters that feel real and for creating atmosphere but I didn't love the narrative structure he uses here He has a large cast of rotating characters and each character has a brief mini story arc that often too often for me concludes with the euivalent of a Jack Handey Deep Thought or a grave pronouncement that is contrived t

    CHARACTERS Ä Björnstad BjörnstadFor people who have never lived where darkness and cold are the norm where else is the exception it is hard to understand that it is possible to find someone who has frozen to death with their jacket open or even naked But when you get really cold your blood vessels contract and your heart does all it can to stop blood reaching the frozen parts of your body and then coming back to your heart cold Not unlike a hockey team suffering a penalty and playing at a numerical disadvantageprioritize resources play defensively defend the heart lungs and brain What happens when the defense finally collapses when you get cold enough is that your box play falls apart your goalie does something stupid your backs stop communicating with each other and the body parts that were previously shut off from circulation are suddenly switched back on again And then when warm blood from your heart flows back to

    CHARACTERS Ä Björnstad BjörnstadPeople round here don't always know the difference between right and wrong But we know the difference between good and evilFredrik Backman is uickly becoming one of my favorite authors His characters and storytelling are practically perfect I can easily recommend this book to anyoneThere are so many different facets to this book uestions of morality and loyalty passion over logic and right vs wrong No path through the story is easy and no solution obvious The background story of every character is perfectly developed and important in the fine tapestry the Backman weaves You may be surprised to discover that a story about a little hockey town far away can make you think about how you approach life in general One final bit of awesomeness about this book With some books you may reach the end having found one or two really great uotes Well when yo

    CHARACTERS Ä Björnstad BjörnstadHere's a little bit of a confession while I really enjoyed Fredrik Backman's book A Man Called Ove and the charming curmudgeon who was its main character I have found in recent years that there seems to be a glut of charming yet misunderstood curmudgeons doddering their way through modern fictionSo despite people's warm feelings about Backman's next two books I passed because I have enough to worry about becoming a hopefully charming curmudgeon someday soon However I did pounce on his novella And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer and I fell in love with it curmudgeon ish character and all and it easily found its way onto m
