Summary:

Now an HBO Original Series

“You’ll love this engrossing novel.” —People

Named a Best Book of the Year by LibraryReads, BookBrowse, and Goodreads

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Anxious People, a dazzling and profound novel about a small town with a big dream—and the price required to make it come true.

By the lake in Beartown is an old ice rink, and in that ice rink Kevin, Amat, Benji, and the rest of the town’s junior ice hockey team are about to compete in the national semi-finals—and they actually have a shot at winning. All the hopes and dreams of this place now rest on the shoulders of a handful of teenage boys.

Under that heavy burden, the match becomes the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through all of Beartown.

This is a story about a town and a game, but even more about loyalty, commitment, and the responsibilities of friendship; the people we disappoint even though we love them; and the decisions we make every day that come to define us. In this story of a small forest town, Fredrik Backman has found the entire world.

    Great story, but BEST narrator ever! I am going to look for more books narrated by Marin Ireland. Seriously, she makes an incredible actor, being all of the actors in the story.

  • Gayla R.

    great book with amazing insight.

  • PAMELA S.

    Enjoyed. Liked the ending.

  • Cyn K.

    Like other reviewers, I enjoyed this book. I appreciate all of Backman's work, but I wouldn't rank this one as a favorite. The expanse of character development is impressive, and that I was able to keep everyone straight is a testament to Backman's abilities. I think it was the plot line that didn't grab me as much as his other novels. Still, I highly recommend.

  • Patricia L

    Amazing! The literary skill of the author is superior. Loved this book..

  • Brint D

    This is a very enthralling tale! Both story and character development are very good and it held my interest throughout. A powerful message about human nature, the pros and cons of a small town and the risk of judging people too soon? Loved it!

  • anna k

    One of the most amazing books I've recently read. You will laugh, you will cry and you will laugh again ?

  • B├íra Agnes K

    His best book of those I have read so far due to so many things regarding the characters and struggle of life in general. And the narrator simply the best one since I started in Audiobooks.

  • Karin S

    The story and the narrator brought me into this story and kept me riveted the entire time.

  • Kerri N

    Loved this one, although it was very different from his others. Characters were interesting, and it was a very well written from several different character perspectives.
