When I saw a book available for request by Fredrik Backman, I immediately requested it. I absolutely love his books. I didn't look at the description or anything. This one happens to be a novella and I was pretty glad about that. It's about an older man who has Alzheimer's disease. It is terribly sad. I don't think I could go through a whole book that reads like this. I know that's horrible to say because there are a lot of people who go through life like that. However, a book should be entertainment.
I will say that it was very well written and definitely captures the disease through the words of the grandpa and the frustrations of the son.
As I said, it is terribly sad and well written. I still recommend it, as it is Fredrik Bachman and his unique writing style is one not to be missed.
Thanks Atria Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
