Beartown A Novel By Backman, Fredrik Book - 2017 | Simon & Schuster Canada edition

I have read 5 books by Fredrik Backman and loved every one of them until Beartown. I do not like the culture of sports with winning as the ultimate goal as opposed to learning teamwork and personal growth. Until the violent event that drives the second half of the novel, I really disliked the book intensely. I especially hated the ostracism, prejudice, and homophobic attitudes that characterized the players without constraint. Mr. Backman's novels have always been ones of hope or humor, but this one had not humor for me. I don't want to give away the ending, so I will not say more. I still recommend the author heartily!
