A bit too long with so many characters that it was difficult to follow at times, but..... Backman's characters are so wonderful and he writes so beautifully that this is a must read for those who have read the first two entries in the triology. Go to Costco and stock up on tissues because the ending will rip your heart out.

The Winners by Fredrik Backman is book three in a trilogy. Beartown introduces us to the town. Us Against You becomes about the sport. The Winners brings the book back to the people. I want to love this book for how much how much I loved some of the other works by the author. Unfortunately, I enjoyed Us Against You a little less than Beartown, and I find myself even less the reader for The Winners. I will, however, continue to look for Fredrik Backman's books.

This is a great finale to The Beartown trilogy. It's a little long and starts out slow but what a impactful story. The people of Beartown still feel the bite from the first book and now they want to close down the two hockey rinks in Beartown and Hed. They want to start a brand new hockey rink for both towns. So what are the residents of Beartown willing to sacrifice for their home? The main themes of the book are corruption, abuse, rape, politics, power, money, hypocrisy, pure rage. There are plenty of characters to learn about who are good and bad. Some of the characters have come back and some are new. This is a book you need to read in order to get the full impact of the book. If you like books about a small town then you will love this book. I look forward to reading more from Backman in future books to come
