  1. A GHOST in the music-John Nichols
  2. Fredrik Backman

    They used flashbacks to good advantage and revealed the true character of Ove in layers. It was quite effective, although I'm sure the book would be better.
  3. I have now finished How to Live by Sarah Bakewell and I'm glad I read this. I knew nothing about Montaigne's life, and only a few pithy aphorisms from his work. I found his ideas fascinating and compelling, especially his combination of Stoicism and Skepticism. The parts dealing with the religious civil wars (between Catholics and Protestants) which plagued France in the late 1500s was interesting and all new news to me. And it was particularly thought provoking to read about the various interpretations and usurpations of Montaigne's work. All in all a very good, well researched, and well written book. Thanks for the recommendation, Luna!
