REVIEW – Beartown by Fredrik Backman

I knew I had to pick this up after reading Ove about a year and a half ago.

Beartown is a wonderful book. So many characters you’ll love. So many characters you’ll hate. I teared up reading this book. I yelled at this book. Backman is a master at getting an emotional response out of his readers.

If you love any sport (not just hockey) you’ll understand and appreciate the way Backman describes Beartown’s love for their hockey team. His writing is poetic without being overly flowery or stuffy. His characters are complex and well-developed.
