"From the New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove, My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry, and Britt-Marie Was Here, comes an exquisitely moving portrait of an elderly man's struggle to hold on to his most precious memories, and his family's efforts to care for him even as they must find a way to let go. "Isn't that the best of all life's ages, an old man thinks as he looks at his grandchild, when a boy is just big enough to know how the world works but still young enough to refuse to accept it." Grandpa and Noah are sitting on a bench in a square that keeps getting smaller every day. The square is strange but also familiar, full of the odds and ends that have made up their lives: Grandpa's work desk, the stuffed dragon that Grandpa once gave to Noah, the sweet-smelling hyacinths that Grandma loved to grow in her garden. As they wait together on the bench, they tell jokes and discuss their shared love of mathematics. Grandpa recalls what it was like to fall in love with his wife, what it was like to lose her. She's as real to him now as the first day he met her, but he dreads the day when he won't remember her. Sometimes Grandpa sits on the bench next to Ted, Noah's father--Ted who never liked math, prefers writing and playing guitar, and has waited his entire life for his father to have time for him, to accept him. But in their love of Noah, they have found a common bond. Grandpa, Grandma, Ted, and Noah all meet here, in this peculiar space that is growing dimmer and more confusing all the time. And here is where they will learn to say goodbye, the scent of hyacinths in the air, nothing to fear. This little book with a big message is certain to be treasured for generations to come"--… (mer)

I...wow. I started this book as an audio first but I could not for the love of god get into it. So I decided to read the ebook and I finally did. At the end of the first chapter I understood what was about to happen.

This novella is heart wrenching, beautiful and the ending broke my heart and surprised me. Honestly, loved it. Amazing and it touches home as the first anniversary of the passing of my grandfather approches. ( )

Short work from Backman about memory loss and parenting and love. ( )

Stop everything and read this book or listen to the audio. It’s a quick read and one that I’d love to see everyone read, especially if you know someone with a memory issue.

Keep tissues nearby and a journal to write down beautiful passages when you come across them, because I know you will.

The author is one of the best writers I’ve ever read. He knows things about the world and humanity that few people do and we’re just lucky that he writes books about it so we can know too. ( )

3.5 Labeled a novella, it feels more like a gift book - perfect for Father's Day! It's a very sweet story though feels pre-packaged as such and I hate feeling manipulated. Beyond that, it is a creative look at dementia and its impact on the one suffering from it and his loved ones. Here it is a grandfather and his grandson Noah. Sometimes the grandfather mistakes Noah for his son and the strain of that relationship vs. the purely loving one he has with his grandson is heart-wrenching and rings true. He also forgets that his wife (whom he remembers as a young woman/girl) is dead and she clearly helped to keep him grounded. The dementia is perceived and described as a room that is shrinking and the grandfather's helplessness to change his condition or overcome it was also very touching. Definitely worth a read/listen, but have some tissues handy. ( )

Totally beautiful and wonderfully conceived story about family, about grandfathers and grandsons, about old age, and of all love and the human mind. Fredrik Backman's A Man Called Ove was good but this novella, by leaps and bounds, is great. Also has great little illustrations too! Just really great writing and gripping story. ( )
