7 out of 10

I loved A Man Called Ove but found Britt-Marie not as compelling. She is a frustrated and socially awkward. She is also insensitive and kind of rude. . Fredrik Backman has an endearing way of making unlikable people likeable. Britt-Marie is social ineptitude, but she grows on you. We find out why she is the way she is and we discover that, due to her childhood and her marriage, she has felt invisible her whole life. She has trouble figuring out who she really is and is fanatical simply because it is the only thing she can control. Upon losing everything, she decides to find a job and is forced to move to a small town. In the process she finds a sense of humor, discovers that she is capable of making friends and also finds her sense of self. I found myself rooting for her.
