Not what I was expecting at all, after having recently read A Man Called Ove. Beartown is a dissection of culture, character, violence, hockey, good, evil, moral strength and weakness in the microcosm of a small town in the backwoods of Sweden. I won't give away too much, but though the narrative is compelling and I would call it most definitely a "page turner", at times I had to put it down because it was almost too painful to go on. The author plays around with the concept of the present and the future. It this happening right now, in the era of #MeToo and No Means No? It's a little hard to tell. This book will stay with me a long time. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is that I could have done without the rhetorical questions and editorializing. ( )

Started this book a year ago and put it back on the shelf. It was so slow and boring. I was surprised because Fredrik Backman is one of my favorited authors. Picked it up again and decided to pursue it again. Glad I did. After getting half way through the book the storyline picks up and becomes an interesting look at a small town and the effects of a horrific crime committed against one of their own by one of their own ( )

Hockey is just a silly little game. We devote year after year after year to it without ever really hoping to get anything in return. We burn and bleed and cry, fully aware that the most the sport can give us, in the very best scenario, is incomprehensibly meager and worthless: just a few isolated moments of transcendence. That's all.
But what the hell else is life made of?

I love hockey. My love for hockey is not understood by most people from where I'm from (Atlanta, GA) and sometimes I don't understand my love for hockey. This book understood my love for hockey. The feeling I get when I step into a hockey rink is a feeling like no other and I don't even play. When I was eleven, the Atlanta Thrashers, our hockey team up and moved all the way to Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada. I was very upset and I didn't understand why a team would leave like that. This was the second time a hockey team had left Atlanta for Canada and we are the only city to have two hockey teams move away. Hockey is not something I love; I need hockey. When I moved to Minnesota and had access to hockey again the first time I went back to a game, I almost cried. The feelings the people in this town feel about hockey is how I feel about hockey but for them, hockey is their town. A lot of reviews I see say you don't need to love hockey to read this book and I agree, but I think a love for hockey makes the story so much better and the motivations of the characters so much clearer. Some people say this book starts slow and if you don't care about the beautiful descriptions of hockey and what it means, maybe that's true but as I read the opening of this story I was reading someone explains what hockey is in the ways I never could.
We all want to believe we would put the life of a person above the love of a game. I know I don't love hockey enough to excuse things. I've been watching hockey or any sport for long enough to know and despise the fact that men who are good at sports can get away with a lot. In fact, nowadays, I watch women's hockey much more frequently than men's. There are still issues but it makes me feel good to watch women play hockey. What I loved about this book is even the people you hate, even for the characters who are making the wrong choices, you can understand why. They feel like they're supporting/saving the town, they don't want to make a statement because they are scared, if they don't speak out they may have a better life. It makes the choices all the characters make so much more meaningful. The author makes it so clear just how much the hockey team means to this town and even though you want the characters to see how wrong they are, you understand why they make the choices they do.
This town and this story are so full and real. The characters feel so much like real people and I think that's because they are. Watch hockey and sports for long enough and live in a hockey town (such as one in MN) for long enough and you will see all the people in this book. It is the characters that truly drive this story. If they aren't believable the whole story falls apart. I cried my way through this book because everything about it was so real and impactful.
This book is not just about hockey but also it is about hockey. About how a sport can take over a town and the lives of the people in it. It's about how you can love a game but not love everything about it but that's not an excuse for not speaking up when bad things happen. It's a story about a town of people who love their town. I loved this book as much as I love the game that it's about. You don't need to love hockey to love this book, but it really, really helps. ( )

Childlike, overly simple writing. Naive and lacking in depth. ( )

Dear Future Me,

If you read this you already forgot what this book was about. Trust Past you. You do not enjoy books about rape and/ or rape culture. It will make you sad and frustrated. And not in a good way.

The bestselling author of A Man Called Ove tells a poignant story of a hockey town paralyzed by scandal. Jobs are disappearing and Beartown is slowly dying, so for its citizens, hockey is everything. Backman asks, “Why does everyone care about hockey? Because hockey tells stories.” This is the story not just of hockey, but of a 15-year-old named Maya Andersson, whose father, Peter, the general manager of the hockey club, loves hockey, but loves his family more. Seventeen-year-old Kevin Erdahl is the star of Beartown, with a chance to go professional. One night, after a huge win, Maya goes to a raucous party at Kevin’s house and is thrilled at his attention, but things get out of hand, and what takes place changes Beartown forever. Lest readers think hockey is the star here, it’s Backman’s rich characters that steal the show, and his deft handling of tragedy and its effects on an insular town. While the story is dark at times, love, sacrifice, and the bonds of friendship and family shine through, ultimately offering hope and even redemption. Backman veers close to the saccharine, but readers may be too spellbound to notice.

For my grandmother, Saga Backman, who taught me to love sports. What a quiet life I would have lived without her. I hope that the big bar in heaven serves proper dry martinis, and that they always show Wimbledon on the big screen. I miss you.

And for Neda Shafti-Backman, my funniest, smartest, more arguentative best friend who picks me up when I need it, and keeps my feet on the grund when I deserve it.
