I just read this book called “Beartown” by Fredrik Backman and even though I completely 100% loathed (I am aware that that was redundant) almost everything about it, it is one of the best books I have ever read. I’m definitely not going to go on to explain the book or anything and turn this into a book review but I would like to coin a new word dedicated to this amazing author. And this word is… *drumroll* Backmanian (I am also aware that that was not very creative)!
A word used to describe the great frustration that one feels when a book like “Beartown” makes one feel too many conflicting emotions at the same time.
I really loved this book and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for some quality modern literature. Just a word of advice though: no matter how many times you want to stop reading, don’t put the book down. It will get better.
