Descripción

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 offers 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.

    This book is really good, as it is both sad and gentle. It inspired me a lot, I can see myself in one of the characters. I can almost feel how they felt, see what they saw and helplessly observing the people they love and care so much is fading away.

    My 2nd Backman and it's utterly different from A Man Called Ove. A great kind of different. This is a book u'll read probably in less than one hour, but it'll certainly stay with you for much more than that. One of the books I'd love to read to my kids or grandkids ❤️

    I worked in Alzheimer's and hospice.. This book touches my heart. So many memories and happy tears. "We need to go home soon"... That sentence seems so innocent. Yet carries so much weight to the loved one or caregiver. Thank you sir. For this magical, heartwarming piece of work. ?

    Heartbreakingly gorgeous. A keeper to be listened to or read many times.

    What a deep and beautiful Novella! Breathtaking <3
    As about the narrator, he was pretty good. English is not my first language so I had to listen to it on speed 0.8, and I think that was a great choice. It made the descriptions and all the thoughts mechanisms even better since a lot happened in such a small amount of time.
  • (5/5)
    how such a short story can contain so much complexity is beyond me

    "I'll tell you about her when you forget, Grandpa. First thing every morning, first of all, I'll tell you about her."
    "Tell me that we danced, Noahnoah. Tell me that that's what it's like to fall in love, like you don't have room for yourself in your own feet."
    "Live your life. It's an awful thing to miss someone who's still here."
    This was such a lovely novella. So, so, so beautiful and heartwarming and heartbreaking and just simply beautiful.

    I'm not entirely sure how Mr Backman is able to capture life's intricate details so vividly. Could be that his stories hit home and align with my experiences-from the indescribable love that I have for my son, to the pain one feels when seeing a loved one slowly leave you-his words encompass everything I feel and believe about this world, but was not creative enough to explain. Truly another brilliant piece of writing that had me tearing and smiling and laughing from the cover page to The End. Another must read, as we all can identify a little bit with his words, and will become a little bit better for it.
  • (5/5)
    Beautiful story of family and love. Excellent and heartwarming
  • (5/5)
    What a heart-melting story that just made me go on a rollercoaster of emotions. I love how this story was written with great care.
  • (5/5)
    It's a beautiful look inside the aging mind. It draws you in with your ability to empathize with those who do feel like they're 'losing it.' Also helps to understand how the aging see those who surround them.
  • (5/5)

    If you've ever had a loved one who has Alzheimer's or dementia, this book will bring back memories you never even realized you'd forgotten. I cried and cried, laughed, and cried more. I wish I could buy it for every person who's ever had a loved one go through this! It's absolutely wonderful!
