My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry

81uD6W0E71L.jpgMy Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman came up at the NC library too. And, since I have read Bachman’s other two and enjoyed them, I thought, why not? I have the rest of my life to read the ones from my shelf. This story centers around Elsa and the imaginary life she and her grandmother create to avoid dealing with reality and Elsa’s difficulties. When Elsa’s grandmother dies, Elsa is lost and, in carrying out her grandmother’s final wishes, really grows up. Backman’s other characters (Britt-Marie for one) appear as well. Initially, and most of the way through, to be honest, I thought this was Backman’s weakest. However, as the characters all begin to be explained, it’s a more enjoyable read. I still preferred his other two, but this one is worth a read.
