  • I utterly believed in the residents of Beartown, and felt ripped apart by the events in the book

    Jojo Moyes, bestselling author of Me Before You
  • Surrounded by impenetrable forests, [Beartown] recreates the stifling atmosphere of a dying community. This is a mature, compassionate novel

    The Sunday Times
  • Mr. Backman cements his standing as a writer of astonishing depth

    The Washington Times
  • 'I wasn't sure I would love a novel centred on hockey - but as with Friday Night Lights this is actually a story about people - about strength and tribal loyalty and what we unwittingly do when trying to show our boys how to be men. I utterly believed in the residents of Beartown, and felt ripped apart by the events in the book'
