I started reading this book and went wait I’ve read this already but under the name “My grandmother sends her regards and apologizes.”
I checked on Frederick Bachman’s Facebook site and sure enough he mentions that it was published under the name I mentioned above in England for some reason.
A little confusing especially as our library carries both!
What a wonderful fairy tale of a book. Loved the characters and Elsa’s great view of them in her world. If you liked Ove you will find this one a treat as well.
Brilliant! A detailed look into a dysfunctional family of 3 generations, interwoven with humour, sarcasm, heartache, grief, loss, devastation, and a touch of romance. Elsa and her grandmother shine in their interactions and outspoken dialogue. Highly recommended!
I fell in love with this book after reading the first few paragraphs, and didn't want to stop reading when I reached the last page. This is a delightful story of Elsa, her eccentric grandmother, and the legacy the grandmother leaves behind as she continues to empower Elsa, her family, and community posthumously. From time to time, we are fortunate to meet a person who lights up the room with their magical presence. That person does not see the world the way we do, and the stories they tell are different from ours, yet they are about the same subjects. Such people tend to change our world and the world of those around us through their fairy tales, allowing us to see the enchantment behind what at first might appear banal. This is the message of this wonderful book. The writing is witty and delightfully quirky, at both the funny and heartbreaking points of the story. I recommend this book to everyone.
The book was interesting, it started off a little boring but then got better.
Such a quirky writer. It is an enjoyable read. Read A Man Called Ove!
Christmas is drawing near, and Elsa is learning a lot about her beloved, revered, eccentric, somewhat crazy, superhero grandmother.
What an amazing, engaging, and absolutely magical book! I laughed, I cried. Plus I fell in love with Elsa, the 7 year old protagonist and all of the wonderfully unique characters that surround her. Now I cannot wait to read A Man Called Ove. A beautifully written story that celebrates being different which I didn't want to stop reading, even when my everyday life got in the way. Highly recommended.
