And Every Morning The Way Home Gets Longer and Longer ~ Book Review.

Hello, people. How are you? How have you been feeling lately? I had my first-ever migraine attack and it was painful. I have been taking proper medications and visiting a doctor. It will take me time to get back to my day-to-day life and it is so weird that a few months ago when I heard about migraine, I would feel like it was just a normal headache but now that I have it, I can feel how disabling it can be. I am thinking of writing about my migraine experience and my life in a new country. I will do it slowly though so I can get a bit of rest too. I am still on medications so it’s not easy, I am easily tired and sleepy all the time. So for now, let’s get to reviewing this book, shall we??

This book is one of my favorite reads of this year. It’s also close to my heart so I hope you read it and I mean it. Please, try it out. Even if you don’t read, just try it once. Now that I have written this pleading message to you. Let’s get reviewing, shall we?

This book made me weep and I loved it! Frederick Backman can make you cry ugly and still love the book. All of the books written by him have been CONCRETE 5 STARS. Like gold plated 5 stars. I have read 3 books by him including this one and oh! Do I love him?!!

This book is especially close to my heart as it’s a very sweet yet sad story about a grandfather who is losing his memory and is on the verge of dying. His young grandson can see this happening and he stays there to take care of his grandfather. I can’t say much about this book as it’s only a novella but I will tell you this, it’s 90 pages long. Read it and you will love it.

This book made my heart leap and miss my grandfather so much. The reality about how death comes and having loved ones around makes it easier is so nicely written in this short novella that you might think about your death and wish and pray that you have someone around you too. The writing of Fredrick Backman has always been beautiful. It’s his job to write like an artist who paints their heart out on a canvas.

This book made me sob, the characters were so beautifully woven around each other that I was mesmerized and when the novella ended, I wanted it to go on and on. I missed them. The story can get a bit confusing in the middle if you don’t pay proper attention to it but the ending wraps up and strongly puts its point forward. The point is being there for each other as a family, it is being with each other when one is dying, it is not abandoning the old when they need your care and thinking about how you would feel if you were them.

I would say that if you need a short and sweet yet sad but true book, read this one. It’s beautiful. It’s mesmerizing. It’s sad but it all wraps up together evenly and creates a small world that will make you emotional.

So I use the CAWPILE created by Book Roast (A BookTuber) to give accurate ratings that are not based on my feelings solely.

Below I will be giving you the full form of CAWPILE with the ranking I gave each of the letters.

Character: 8 stars.

Atmosphere: 9.6 stars.

Writing: 10 stars.

Plot: 8 stars.

Intrigue: 10 stars.

Logic: 8 stars.

Enjoyment: 10 stars.

The average of all these is 9.09 stars which on the 5-star rating scale is 5 stars.

So this is it. That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed my book review and I am trying to be regular but it might take some time. So let’s hope for the best!

  1. A Man Called Ove was highly acclaimed, and it seems from your review that this one is just as good.
    Are you going to tell us something about your new lfe in another country? Why you moved there? How are you adapting? I would love to know.
    Best wishes, Pete. xx
