Review: Out of Sorts

Out of Sorts

Out of Sorts
Aurélie Valognes

Ferdinand is a grumpy old man, there is no doubt about it. And that's why he has no friends but, that's okay with him, he likes it that way. Unfortunately, his only daughter, who lives on the other side of the world has decided that it's time for Ferdinand to go to a retirement home. Of course this doesn't sit well with Ferdinand. His daughter makes one concession, if he submits to inspections of his apartment by the concierge Mrs Suarez on a monthly basis and tries to changes his unfriendly ways he may be allowed to stay in his apartment.

The story follows Ferdinand's attempts to change his ways with the help of some new neighbors and friends. It has just the right amount of wit, humor and tragedy to make the reader really care about the characters. It's well written and it will leave one thinking that new beginnings are possible at any age. All in all, it's a fun and enjoyable read.

Thanks to Netgalley for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
