Us Against You | Fredrik Backman

I love Backman's books, but this one is just making me sad and angry and sad.
Sigh...

Sad and sweet and realistic in its complexity. I devoured it in 24 hours, which rarely happens any more.

Like hanging out with my teenaged daughter and her friends, in the best possible way. A fun read after a series of dark and mediocre books.

Wtf with the ending?!
Anyone?

I felt like it was 5 pages from some other book.

readherwriteher I agree. What the actual EFF?!? The whole book was terrible. Laura did nothing. The characters were blah, there was no storyline/plot that I could find... and then she‘s stuck on a roof in a snowstorm at the end. That‘s how the story ends? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y
JenFowler @readherwriteher Yes! Exactly! What was that ending???? I actually thought the book was nice. Quiet, soft, real. But the ending was really weird. Is the author saying she dies outside?? On the roof? 2y
JenFowler I was wondering if anyone else thought Laura was gay by chance? 2y
readherwriteher @JenFowler I think she was gay and flirted with the idea of acting on it, until her date turned out to be someone she knew. 1y
BarefootBurk Definitely on both. 1y

Part two of matchy jacket design. Not as obvious as the last one but still eye catching.

Loving this one so far. I really liked her last novel, which was the first thing I'd read by her.

Blech. Just blech.

BarefootBurk This just confirms I shouldn't bother with anything that's compared with Gone Girl. I hated that one, so why should I torture myself with read-alikes? 2y

Embarrassed that I didn't know this was Australian. I rarely listen to audiobooks; the reader surprised me! (I just discovered that I've been paying for Audible for a while, so I downloaded books to use up my credits before I quit.)

This was the soothing, comfortable, enjoyable book I needed right now. Familiar settings, familiar characters, none of which I found stupid or annoying.

Pamwurtzler That looks good just from the cover. Is it a series? 2y
BarefootBurk @Pamwurtzler Not a series. Could be, but it's not cute/cozy enough. 2y
Chelleo Thanks for the review. I‘m just starting it today! 2y

No. I kept waiting for something to happen. It seemed like it was written solely to be a screenplay. Like Gone Girl, it would probably make a better movie than book. They wouldn't have to cut anything to fit it into 100 minutes.

Dulcinella I didn‘t like it either. 2y
Chelleo Same 😕 2y

This is not turning out to be the break I needed from hard books. It's been sitting in my TBR pile for so long that I forgot what it was about.
I'm gonna need some book candy after this one.

Why I read...
Why would anyone DO this? More specifically, my desire to sit and read in peace is greater than my desire to find one of my kids and ask "wtf?'

ReadingEnvy Too hard to reach the last few! 2y

This was fascinating. Also, it was quite a challenge compared to most of what I read these days. But it felt good to stretch the brain a bit.

Predictable but still totally enjoyable. Like Before We Were Yours, it will be a good one to recommend to people.

Maybe not worth the hype, but solid. Sad.

Isn't it "tenet"?

BookishMe The prologue was relatively slow. Will return to it sometime... Oh, Welcome to Litsy 👋🏾 👋🏾 2y

Two mentions of my hometown in this book so far. I always wonder whether authors have a personal connection to locations, or if they just throw darts at a map.
