The Deal of a Lifetime

Staff Review: The Deal of a Lifetime

"The Deal of a Lifetime" by Fredrik Backman

'The Deal of a Lifetime'  by  Fredrik Backman

When I saw this new book on the adult fiction shelf in the library, I judged it by physical size and the fact that it had less than 75 pages. I wondered, what could possibly be on the pages that makes it so popular?

A man who loved work ahead of everything else in life, including his wife and even his own son, makes a decision with the lady in the gray sweater (and a clipboard) that will forever change the life of one very young child who is struggling with certain death from cancer. It is a very quick read but one that will stay in your mind for a very long time!

Audience: Adults | Genre: Fiction, Contemporary Fiction
