Beartown by Fredrik Backman
I just recently finished reading Beartown by Fredrik Backman, the second novel of his I have completed. After enjoying A Man Called Ove, I figured I would definitely find this one entertaining. From the very first pages, I realized I would not be disappointed. Immediately, Backman draws the reader in by delving into the minds of various characters. Be it a middle aged father who is the General Manager of the hockey club, his wife who is a successful lawyer, his musically talented 15 year old daughter, her “outcast” best friend, various hockey players on the successful Junior team, as well as many other adults and teens, Backman gives insight into their deepest thoughts, desires, and fears. His writing style is a concise, distinct manner that contains almost constant suspenseful foreshadowing. There are numerous times where I was cringing, expecting a certain outcome, but Backman provides so many twists that it never becomes predictable. This novel is so much more than a chronicle of a Hockey team and its fanatical town followers. You do not have to be a sports fan to enjoy this captivating story. There are some profound life lessons about choices, individuality, and identity. If nothing else, it is a very enjoyable read.
