Product description

Review

There is much naive charm to be found in this story of a young girl who finds both a new friend and the hope for a new life through her growing interest in jazz... this is a loving, quietly charming... portrayal of jazz as a music which salves the soul of a misfit, brings her friendship and a sense of camaraderie and connects the future with the past. Glasgow Sunday Herald Wonderful Feels Like This is a gifted and moving novel, elegantly translated from the Swedish... Lovestam can make difficult narrative feats look easy (the way she can sketch character so economically, using only a few telling brushstrokes, is especially engaging) and the sharply observed central relationship draws you into its poignancy and quiet heroism. Sydney Morning Herald Sensitive and deeply moving: outstanding. Kirkus Reviews Empathy, identity, and the transformative power of music bind this tale of an atypical friendship between a teenage outcast and a jazz musician. Publishers Weekly Lovestam is a musical writer, with such an eye on language and storytelling that she can do almost anything she wants... She writes with the perfect pitch. -- Malin Persson Giolito Amelia A well written, warm and cosy story about how unexpectedly you can find a friend when you most need one. -- Stefan Holm Varmland Folkblad I know of no writer who can make me so genuinely happy as Sara Lovestam does... And if I'm ever asked what is the best book I've ever read, I will definitely answer: Wonderful Feels Like This. -- Annika Koldenius

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this book! 20 April 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Wonderfully written and translated book. The main character, Steffi, is quirky and complex. It was hard to put the book down, but I didn't want to finish and leave the characters. Excellent for young adults and old alike.
