Den röda adressboken Summary Ì 5 Sofia Lundberg ´ 5 Read & Download Summary ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Sofia Lundberg Follows 96 year old Doris who writes down the memories of her eventful life as she pages through her decades old address book But the most profound moment of her life is still to comeMeet Doris a 96 year old woman living alone in her Stockholm apartment She has few visitors but her weekly Skype calls with Jenny her American grandniece and her only. Let me start with a little backstory I love Christmas cards I love sending them and I love receiving them Some are shared family updates from the past year pictures or just a simple signature on a beautiful Christmas card What I also love are the memories of my Mother and Grandmother pulling out their address books from the cabinet sitting at the table and one by one addressing dozens of cards to family friends and neighborsMy Mom s book was a light blue leather with two simple gold bands on the edge while my Grandmothers was a black rectangular book thats pages were frayed and full of torn address labels that needed to be added at a later date As I got older I helped with the Christmas cards My job was to address them while they wrote the cards What seemed so innocuous at the time as I would ask them about someone in the book was really them sharing our family s past with me Both of them would tell me a story about the person while I was addressing the card I loved to hear these stories of the special people who made it into my family s books Christmas card sending sometimes turned into a multi evening affair because of my curiosity Sometimes there was melancholy and sadness in their voices about a relative or friend but the laughs and smiles were always greater As I got older lines appeared in these books These were the lines that crossed through someone s name Never blacked out only a simple line which meant that person was no longer part of the book Sometimes it was because they drifted out of our lives but most of the time it was because they passed awaySofia Lundberg s book The Red Address Book obviously resonated with me and I found it bringing back so many wonderful memories It is the fictional story of 96 year old Doris who recalls the story of her life as she turns the pages of her red address book a childhood gift from her father Doris shares the memories and events that shaped her colorful lifeWhile Lundberg tells the story of one individual it is really the story of so many people that shaped Doris lifeDoris life is full rich sad and sometimes heart wrenching It is a story that you will want to learn about and anxiously await the introduction of the next person in her address bookWhile I can t relate to specifics in Doris life I can relate to the importance of an address bookIt s so much than just names and addresses it s the story of our livesTen years after her death I still have my grandmothers and one day I will inherit my moms but I have my own now As I fill the pages with names I too am telling the story that on my deathbed will be my lifeI received an advance copy of this book from Netgalley netgalley theredaddressbook

Thanks to Netgalley and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for an e ARC in exchange for an honest review I am not going to lie to any of you this Goodreads rating is totally influenced by my emotions Although I like to play my cards close and portray myself as a cynic Swedish author Sofia Lundberg s Doris suirmed her way into my heart Just how do the Swedish keep doing this to me looking at you Fredrik Backman The greatest comfort in life comes from freely expressing one s opinion and being met with nothing but love in return even when opinions diverge Usually when a reviewer writes a review we are trying to list all the reason you shouldshouldn t read this book I can only think about one reason you should LOVE This book is all about that in big capital letters with tears rolling from eyes that have witnessed regrets loss of family terror and above all love If you need a second reason well you just need to meet Doris I wish you enough sun to light up your days enough rain that you appreciate the sun Enough joy to strengthen your soul enough pain that you can appreciate life s small moments of happiness enough meetings that you can say a farewell
