Lisa Genova's handling of incurable diseases and the characters she draws coping individually and as a family is outstanding. Even though this is a serious subject matter, you find yourself laughing at times with the person. She also gives just enough medical knowledge so you learn more about the disease. Very inspiring.
Beautifully depicted characters. Our entire book club was moved by this story of love and perseverance. I found myself rooting for Ove and laughing and crying throughout the book. One misunderstood person finding meaning to life after meeting the right person to bring him back from tragedy. Not the typical love story, but one just the same.
