I'm excited to start this book tonight, but it doesn't seem like my cat, BABY, wants me to.😂

I loved this one. It was the female version of The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell for me. Rough childhood followed by strong life lessons. I can‘t recommend it without a warning though. There is one very disturbing part, but you can probably skip through it and get the gist if it bothers you.

The continuation of Beartown is just as compelling. It continues to be a dissection of small town life when a sports team is more important than anything else. The most compelling characters in my opinion are Benji and Maya. Benji fills and breaks my heart at the same time, and Maya demonstrates the strength of women. These two books and it characters will haunt me for a while.

Shamzi Both the books hit hard on so many levels!! 2w

I‘ve now read everything Backman has published! I have the paperback, but decided to listen to the audiobook for this one, and I‘m glad. The narrator did a nice job.

I became attached to the characters in the Beartown duology, none moreso than Benji. I worried for his safety, for his health, for his future. I think Backman makes his misunderstood characters so interesting, and this was no exception.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Megabooks It is a great audiobook! 1mo
