A long tale but worth it in the end

The story took the reader across the changing face of Australia beautifully. It was naive and innocent to start with and some sections of the book about Bonegilla did feel a little aimless at the time but the story wove intriguingly across the second half. Well worth the read

The characters are so imperfectly real that they draw you into the story and provoke strong reactions in the reader. Nothing is black and white and the complexities of small town life are captured perfectly.

This story is beautifully written and the intertwining of the past and present give great depth into the man called Ove. I loved it!

The imagery and emotions draw the reader into the horrors but also the strength of the human experience. This is an exceptional book!
