The Scandal by Fredrik Backman Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 

I'm sorry that I haven't posted in a while. I've finished The Scandal and it was good! It took me a while to read because it's over 400 pages and it took a while for me to write this review too.

NetGalley provided me with an e-arc of The Scandal so thanks to them for letting me read it. 
3 Stars!
The Scandal takes place in Beartown, which is in Scandinavia, in this novel. 
"Beartown isn't close to anything". This means that without hockey, the main thing that holds this community together, the people of Beartown wouldn't have anything. It's their life source. 
"Want to bet?" Kevin grins. "100 kronor" Lyt nods. They shake on it"
They use the kronor as their currency. This is how we know the novel takes place in Scandinavia.
It's a very sports dominated book so if that isn't your type of book, maybe don't pick this up. There is emotional stuff as well though, although it's not a romance at all! 
NOTE…

It's now available to buy/download too. I read the arc from NetGalley so thanks to them for giving me access.
It's told in duel POV format, where we see how the main events of the book affect both our main characters, Evan and Julia. The perspectives were quite easy to tell apart as each chapter is titled with the name of the character it's coming from. Also it switched every chapter as well as the personalities differing throughout. I normally don't like it when a female author writes a male POV or vice versa because I don't think they know what men feel, just as I don't think men know what women feel. I, however thought that Pitoniak did a good job in this case as the story deals more with emotion than sex, I guess. The Futur…
