I did it.
It was an accident, but still, I broke a cardinal rule of book reading.
I read the last chapter first.
I blame it on the e-book format and I should probably have to re-shelve library books for the next week as penance.
Would I recommend it? Don’t read the last chapter first because that will spoil everything but also don’t let the first few chapters get you down. Give it a little time and you’ll fall in love with the grumpy old Swedish man called Ove, I did.
I confess, I used to be a regular last chapter reader, but I seem to have dropped the habit now.
*gasp* But you’ve always seemed so nice and sensible!!! 😉
Ouch. I used to do that I magazines. 😂
😀 Thanks for visiting!
Shelving books isn’t really a penance. It is a great time to find all types of materials to read. Regardless you can reshelve materials any time at the library. JB
Thank you for the offer. The problem is I *would* check them all out and then who would feed my girls!?! 😉
I really liked it (start to finish in order!!). I tried one of author’s other books about a woman and ick, did not finish…..
I heard the same thing from someone else about his other book- good to know! Thanks! 🙂
I give George a hard time about reading the end first (in mysteries!) But only because he’s otherwise perfect.
He reads the end of mysteries first?! That’s like… the worst of the worst! Good thing he is otherwise perfect! (In related news hows the water situation at the farm? 😉 )
We are so focused on perfection that the water gets little attention.
[…] your door. But, because I’m the sort of person who would never read the last chapter first (Except for recently but that was totally an accident!) and rarely read the front matter or even the back cover to decide if I’m going to read it, […]
I downloaded the sample to my e-reader a few months ago to see if I might want to read/buy it. I read the first chapter (free) and dumped it. Now you have me wondering if it might have improved. Hmmm.
I thought it did, but only if you like grumpy old man humor. 😉
