Docket Page 54 – The Story of Arthur Truluv by Elizabeth Berg

CHARGE (What was the author trying to say?): To explore friendship between very dissimilar people.

FACTS: If you enjoyed “A Man Called Ove” you will feel a strange sense of deja vu when you read this book. A grieving widower makes unexpected connection that lead to unexpected relationships. A connection with the dead, bullying, and baking all come together to bring new life in the middle of despair. It’s a very easy read. It doesn’t require your complete attention. A feel-good beach read.

VERDICT (Was the author successful?): Guilty, as charged but rather contrived.
