Recommend this to everyone who appreciates a good character driven story. Backman does not fail to make you feel like being a member of the small community of Beartown. You witness how the different people of Beartown deal with themes like trauma, loss, racism, homophobia, misogyny - how they eventually learn to find their place in a community that values tradition and is trying nothing but to survive in the midst of the wilderness. The love between certain characters is so beautifully conveyed that it moved me to tears. As in "A Man Called Ove" the focus is on a deeper connection between them - on gratitude, loyalty, friendship and appreciation. Backman is an author who does not give you a superficial story but rather a story that feels real, authentic and reflects the lives of so many. I love all of Backman's works - this one especially.

'I utterly believed in the residents of Beartown and felt ripped apart by the events in the book' JOJO MOYES
'I couldn't put it down. Heart-rending and engrossing' 5***** Reader Review
In a large Swedish forest, Beartown hides a dark secret . . .
Cut-off from everywhere else, it experiences the kind of isolation that tears people apart.
And each year, more and more of the town is swallowed by the forest.
Then the town is offered a bright new future.
But it is all put in jeopardy by a single, brutal act.
It divides the town into those who think it should be hushed up and forgotten, and those who'll risk the future to see justice done.
Who will speak up?
Could you stand by and stay silent?
Or would you risk everything for justice?
Which side would you be on?

Surrounded by impenetrable forests, it recreates the stifling atmosphere of a dying community. This is a mature, compassionate novel.
