Mini Reviews: Things My Son Needs to Know about the World by Fredrik Backman


Fredrik Backman is an auto-buy author for me. I'll read just about anything he writes and though Things My Son Needs to Know about the World book was a little different from his fiction, he brought to it similar wit and humanity, which made it an enjoyable, moving read. I liked that this wasn't a read guide, but rather a reflection on life and how being a father has changed that of the author. I wasn't sure what to think when this fiction author turned to a different genre, but he did so well and thought I am already looking forward to his next novel, I'd recommend this one to fans of the author, to parents, or anyone who enjoys a witty reflection on moving through life and doing the best we can.
