Publisher's Summary

En este “encantador debut” (People) y bestseller del New York Times —que próximamente será una gran producción cinematográfica protagonizada por Tom Hanks— de uno de los autores suecos más exitosos, un hombre gruñón pero adorable encuentra su solitario mundo patas arriba cuando una joven y escandalosa pareja se mudan a la casa de al lado.

Conoce a Ove. Es un cascarrabias: el tipo de persona que señala a la gente que le desagrada como si fueran ladrones pillados afuera de su ventana. Tiene principios firmes, rutinas estrictas y mal genio. La gente lo llama “el amargado del infierno”. Pero ¿Ove es amargado sólo porque no anda con una sonrisa en la cara todo el tiempo?

Detrás del malhumorado exterior hay una historia y algo triste. Así que cuando, una mañana de noviembre, una joven pareja parlanchina y sus dos hijas se mudan a la casa de al lado y, por accidente, chocan contra el buzón de correo de Ove, comienza una cómica y tierna historia de gatos andrajosos, una amistad inesperada y el antiguo arte de poner en reversa un camión de mudanza. Todo esto cambiará a un viejo gruñón y a una asociación de residentes locales en sus mismos fundamentos.

Una historia reconfortante, con el espíritu de El insólito peregrinaje de Harold Fry y El mayor Pettigrew se enamora, la novela de Fredrik Backman sobre el viejo enojón de al lado es una detallada exploración del profundo impacto que una vida tiene sobre muchas otras. “Si existiera un premio para el ‘Libro más encantador del año’, esta primera novela de un bloguero sueco vuelto sensación de un día para otro sin duda lo ganaría (Booklist, reseña destacada).

In this New York Times bestselling “charming debut” (People)—soon to be a major motion picture starring Tom Hanks—from one of Sweden’s most successful authors, a grumpy yet loveable man finds his solitary world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door.

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).

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.
