Download and read online A Man Called Ove in PDF and EPUB Read the New York Times bestseller that has taken the world by storm! Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell.” But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn’t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time? Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove’s mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents’ association to their very foundations. A feel-good story in the spirit of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, Fredrik Backman’s novel about the angry old man next door is a thoughtful exploration of the profound impact one life has on countless others. “If there was an award for ‘Most Charming Book of the Year,’ this first novel by a Swedish blogger-turned-overnight-sensation would win hands down” (Booklist, starred review).

New York Times bestseller 'Warm, funny, and almost unbearably moving' Daily Mail 'Rescued all those men who constantly mean to read novels but never get round to it' Spectator Books of the Year At first sight, Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He thinks himself surrounded by idiots - neighbours who can't reverse a trailer properly, joggers, shop assistants who talk in code, and the perpetrators of the vicious coup d'etat that ousted him as Chairman of the Residents' Association. He will persist in making his daily inspection rounds of the local streets. But isn't it rare, these days, to find such old-fashioned clarity of belief and deed? Such unswerving conviction about what the world should be, and a lifelong dedication to making it just so? In the end, you will see, there is something about Ove that is quite irresistible...
Download and read online Britt Marie Was Here in PDF and EPUB The number 1 European bestseller by the author of New York Times bestseller and international phenomenon A Man Called Ove, Britt-Marie was Here is a funny, poignant and uplifting tale of love, community, and second chances. For as long as anyone can remember, Britt-Marie has been an acquired taste. It's not that she's judgemental, or fussy, or difficult - she just expects things to be done in a certain way. A cutlery drawer should be arranged in the right order, for example (forks, knives, then spoons). We're not animals, are we? But behind the passive-aggressive, socially awkward, absurdly pedantic busybody is a woman who has more imagination, bigger dreams and a warmer heart than anyone around her realizes. So when Britt-Marie finds herself unemployed, separated from her husband of 20 years, left to fend for herself in the miserable provincial backwater that is Borg - of which the kindest thing one can say is that it has a road going through it - and somehow tasked with running the local football team, she is a little unprepared. But she will learn that life may have more to offer her that she's ever realised, and love might be found in the most unexpected of places.

Everyone remembers the smell of their grandmother's house. Everyone remembers the stories their grandmother told them. But does everyone remember their grandmother flirting with policemen? Driving illegally? Breaking into a zoo in the middle of the night? Firing a paintball gun from a balcony in her dressing gown? Seven-year-old Elsa does. Some might call Elsa's granny 'eccentric', or even 'crazy'. Elsa calls her a superhero. And granny's stories, of knights and princesses and dragons and castles, are her superpower. Because, as Elsa is starting to learn, heroes and villains don't always exist in imaginary kingdoms; they could live just down the hallway. As Christmas draws near, even the best superhero grandmothers may have one or two things they'd like to apologise for. And, in the process, Elsa can have some breath-taking adventures of her own . . .
Download and read online A Man Called Ove in PDF and EPUB Sebelum terlibat lebih jauh dengannya, biar kuberi tahu. Lelaki bernama Ove ini mungkin bukan tipemu. Ove bukan tipe lelaki yang menuliskan puisi cinta atau menyanyikan lagu saat kencan pertama. Dia juga bukan tetangga yang akan menyambutmu di depan pagar sambil tersenyum hangat. Ove tidak akan seramah itu. Dia lelaki antisosial yang memandang orang sekitarnya sebagai sekelompok anak muda dungu dan tidak berguna. Dia tidak mudah percaya kepada siapa pun. Seumur hidup, yang bisa dipercayainya hanyalah Sonja yang cantik, mencintai buku-buku, dan menyukai kejujuran Ove. Sonja yang tetap tersenyum sambil bercerita panjang lebar di samping Ove, meski lelaki itu hanya terdiam sepanjang waktu. Orang melihat Ove sebagai lelaki hitam-putih, sedangkan Sonja penuh warna. Tak pernah ada yang menanyakan kehidupan Ove sebelum bertemu Sonja. Namun bila ada yang bertanya, dia akan menjawab bahwa dia tidak hidup. Begitu pun tanpanya, Ove merasa lebih baik mati saja. Sebab, di dunia ini yang bisa dicintainya hanya tiga hal: kebenaran, mobil Saab, dan Sonja. Lalu… masih inginkah kau mengenal lelaki bernama Ove ini? "Kau akan tertawa, menangis, bersimpati terhadap orang temperamen yang kau temui dalam kisah memesona ini." (People) "Secara keseluruhan, Anda akan mendapatkan cerita yang penuh semangat, keteguhan hidup, dan kisah jenaka tentang menemukan kebaikan, cinta, dan kebahagiaan di tempat yang paling tidak memungkinkan." (Sunday Express) "Cerita Ove memuat kesedihan yang tampaknya justru mendorong penulis mengemasnya dengan kehangatan dan humor. Kisah pahit dan mengharukan yang meyakinkan pembaca akan kekuatan persahabatan, bahkan mungkin cinta pada kucing." (Psychologies Magazine) [Mizan, Noura Books, Novel, Terjemahan, Cinta, Indonesia]

Download and read online My Struggle Book 2 in PDF and EPUB "[Book 2] sears the reader because Knausgaard is a passionate idealist [who] wants to fight the conformity and homogeneity of modern bourgeois existence." —James Wood, The New Yorker In the second installment of Karl Ove Knausgaard's monumental six-volume masterpiece, the character Karl Ove Knausgaard moves to Stockholm, where, having left his wife, he leads a solitary existence. He strikes up a deep friendship with another exiled Norwegian, a Nietzschean intellectual and boxing fanatic named Geir. He also tracks down Linda, whom he met at a writers' workshop a few years earlier and who fascinated him deeply. My Struggle: Book 2 is at heart a love story—the story of Karl Ove falling in love with his second wife. But the novel also tells other stories: of becoming a father, of the turbulence of family life, of outrageously unsuccessful attempts at a family vacation, of the emotional strain of birthday parties for children, and of the daily frustrations, rhythms, and distractions of city life keeping him from (and filling) his novel. It is a brilliant work that emphatically delivers on the unlikely promise that many hundreds of pages later readers will be left breathlessly demanding more.
