Description

I appreciated the viewpoint of our precocious little protagonist at times, but most often found it frustrating.

At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmother’s stories, in the Land-of-Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas, where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal. Heartbreaking and hilarious in equal measure, this novel will charm and delight anyone who has ever had a grandmother. The novel is ostensibly that of a little girl named Elsa who is seven years old and her beloved grandmother. Her parents are divorced and her mother and new partner are expecting a baby but worst of all Elsa is having a rough time at school . She is supposed to be very bright for her age, but really, some of the things she does and says is simply annoying.Elsa is the greatest combinations of both her parents, and grandparents, but mostly she is unique and different. As each letter is delivered, more color, as well as a mysterious danger, is added to this Christmas tale. There was a story to be told but with too many distractions; too many things to NOT like along the way. Harry Potter is better reading than this for an adult and so much of the story is stolen from Harry Potter. When I perused the description for My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry, I went "uh oh" but continued on.

This book was first published in the original Swedish ( Min mormor hälsar och säger förlåt) in 2013, then it was translated into English ( My Grandmother Sends Her Regards And Apologises, or in the US, My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry, which doesn’t quite have the same ring to it) in 2015 by Henning Koch. The mightiest power of death is not that it can make people die, but that it can make the people left behind want to stop living"… However, grandma taught Elsa that life does not really end with the passing of a beloved. When her best (and quirky) friend, her grandmother, leaves her a series of letters upon her death to be delivered to their intended receivers, she sets onto a thrilling journey of discoveries.Her grandmother created a fantasy world of people and places to help teach Elsa a different way of looking at the world both near and afar. Odată bunica a dus-o pe nepoțica sa în Spania, povestește Fredrik Backman, și au stat acolo la un hotel all inclusive, dar Elsa n-a fost deloc impresionată. On the audio, read with a nice British accent, I couldn't be sure of any spellings (or obviously of my hearing); so please bear with me here while I complain.
