If I could, I would give it more than 5 stars. The story was utterly compelling and reminded me of a roller coaster. One moment I was laughing my head off and on the next page the story line broke my heart. I enjoyed the style of the book and Fredrik Backman's similes and metaphors (and all those other things when you compare things) were absolutely superb.
This book was about serious topics but at the same time it was such a positive and joyous read.
