When Elsa's grandmother passes away suddenly, she is devastated. Granny, who lived just next door, had been her best friend and one of the few people who understood her, and Elsa is angry with her for not being honest with her about her fatal illness. True to her eccentric character, Granny has left behind a series of apologetic letters which Elsa must deliver to various interesting characters in their lives, leading her on an educational, amusing adventure.

I enjoyed nearly everything about this charming book, which made me reminisce about the year I lived in Sweden. Elsa was amazing and Granny was quite a character, and I would love to live in their building with all of its diverse personalities. That said, magical realism and I just don't get on, and unfortunately it played a pretty significant role in the plot. ( )

While I had a few issues with this story (too many "stories" within the story, feeding the dog chocolate, some of Granny's behavior), overall, I loved it. I love the idea of accepting and celebrating differences between people, and understanding that everyone experiences difficulties in their lives. Uplifting, wonderful book. ( )

Like others, I had high expectation for the second novel, following his great debut, A Man Called Ove. However, the main character is precocious, almost 8-year old, not a lovable curmudgeon. Grandmother’s health is failing, but she is a rambunctious free spirit, having lead a most unconventional life. Elsa and her grandmother have a very unique, loving relationship, with Elsa often the "adult," who knows what is right from wrong. They have an imaginary world from Grandmother's fairy tales/life lessons, which is brought to life when the Grandmother dies, leaving young Else to deliver her farewell apology letters to her neighbors and with a special surprise.


"There is nothing wrong with being different. Granny said that only different people change the world." -- spoken by almost 8-year old, Elsa

realistic fiction (with bits of fantasy land). Apparently this is the lighter side of Swedish fiction (no gruesome murders allowed), and I enjoyed it, though before it got to the darker parts it was maybe a touch too saccharine--like maybe no one's granny is that perfect (even her dysfunctional behaviors come out of her unconditional love and support for her granddaughter). Backman's characters are indeed charming and his dialogue is sharply witty. ( )

Sweet book, but I enjoyed A Man Named Ove much more. ( )

A contemporary fairy tale from the whimsical author of A Man Called Ove (2014)...This is a more complex tale than Backman’s debut, and it is intricately, if not impeccably, woven. The third-person narrative voice, when aligned with Elsa’s perspective, reveals heartfelt, innocent observations, but when moving toward omniscience, it can read as too clever by half. Given a choice, Backman seems more likely to choose poignancy over logic; luckily, the choice is not often necessary. As in A Man Called Ove, there are clear themes here, nominally: the importance of stories; the honesty of children; and the obtuseness of most adults, putting him firmly in league with the likes of Roald Dahl and Neil Gaiman.

A touching, sometimes-funny, often wise portrait of grief.
