Things my son needs to know about the world by Fredrik Backman

Things my son needs to know about the world by Fredrik Backman

Genre: Non-fiction/ memor


Have you read anything by Fredrik Bachman before?⁣ I’ve read ‘A man called Ove’ but didn’t like it as much.⁣

But this book came to me at the right time in my life. The author and I are more or less the same age. I also have a 10 month old daughter. So I could relate to almost everything in this book.⁣

It’s meant to be something that the author wants to write to for son, giving him life advice and also unwanted advice about how to fry things in beer. ⁣ ⁣I laughed out loud many times while reading this and I also shed a few happy tears. It’s also apparent how much he loves his wife – the mother of his son , and I can think of nothing better to give to your children.⁣

Needless to say I will be buying a physical copy for my shelf.⁣ My only complaint is that the book could have been longer.

Thank you Atria books for the review copy. This book releases on 7th may so be on the look out for that.⁣

Also this is my first 5 star book of this year. Yay!!!
