Narrator made this listen feel like I was attending a live theater performance. She was terrific. The story is fun and refreshingly unusual in how it was crafted. Great read during very difficult times.
Listened to 14 chapters it was AWFUL.
Another great book, with great character development.
Very entertaining and comical read that easily makes you sympathize with all of the characters involved. The narrator did an especially wonderful job considering the volume of characters!
Backman gives us another winner! Surprises at every turn. You’ll laugh and cry and long to find yourself in the closet, too!
The narration was terrific but the story was so confusing.
I listened to the first hour twice.
Can get that time back...
Kept hoping it would get better.
For me it didn’t.
An uplifting, clever and funny read!
Such a great storyteller.
Fun story. The narration was great as she shifted her voice slightly between characters. The story itself was good with a full ending for each character. I really enjoyed it.
Great listen. Hard to follow initially but the storyline really picks up and gets super interesting.
Loved the novel and narrator! Made me emotional because it’s so relatable.
Book had a slow start but built to a sweet and satisfying conclusion. Narrator was wonderful!
I keep chasing this experience, this was such a sweet experience to listen to, intricate, poignant, optimistic and funny.
Enjoyable, funny, light listen. I would recommend this book to a friend.
The narrator was wonderful and overall it was a very sweet story. However at times the sweetness became almost too much but still quite enjoyable.
A delightful, insightful love letter to humanity. What a gift, especially read by the very talented Marin Ireland.
This was a great book. Desperation in certain circumstances makes or breaks people. I was shocked at one event impacting a number of people. Their lives were revolves around a singular situation.
I enjoyed this immensely. I would laugh out loud while driving. WOW! So intricately woven. I've read at least 3 of his other books, but this one showed me a deeper character understanding, wit and intelligence.
Excellent and highly imaginative
It was okay, it wasn't my favorite of his books
Couldn’t make it through 5 chapters
As an anxious person this book spoke to my soul.
this book has its positives and negatives. I think it tells the truth about how people aren't given a fair chance when the going gets tough. When hard luck falls on someone its like, oh well...you have to use deal with it and move on no matter how much it really isn't your fault or how much of a victim you are.
A fun, intriguing listen. I enjoyed it all the way though.
Excellent book- hilarious at times, moving to tears at times, as the reader witnesses several lives change profoundly and unexpectedly.
What a unique story! Backman writes great characters and dialogue and the narrator did an admirable job with all the unique personalities. Many lines that I wish I had written. So witty
Super slow up until nearly the end, but a great story
This was such a sweet and fun book !! It’s what I needed to take my mind of all the stress of the world
Excellent book. Have really started enjoying Fredrik Backman's books. This is my third of his that I have "read". All wonderful escapes.
