Flash Reviews: A Man Called Ove & The Days of Tao

It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to post so I’m doing two quick reviews right now.

First up is A Man Called Ove, by Fredrik Backman. This is a book from my book club and I absolutely loved it. I thought it was what I like to refer to as “beautifully sad”. A widower appears to be just a cranky old man but when new neighbors move in, Ove turns out to be more than anyone expected. This book was sweet, sentimental, and sad. When done right, those three elements make for a compelling story and this book does that. An excellent read.

Next, The Days of Tao, by Wesley Chu. This is a novella that is an offshoot of Chu’s Tao series. Tao’s next host, Cameron Tan, is thrown into unexpected action and the battle between Prophus and the Genjix goes to a global level. Being a novella, this book is a quick read and enough of a taste of how Cameron is dealing with being a host for Tao. It also offers a small tidbit of info on another of Chu’s book, The Rise of Io. This is a fun book if you are a fan of Chu’s Tao series (which I highly recommend).

Eight days into 2017 and I’m two books in. Hope to keep up the pace!
