The introduction to Brittany’s book was here
There are many people in society who use their age as an excuse to procrastinate and procrastinate.

It does not matter how old you are, there are always people who say, “It’s over for me” or “It’s too late for these things,” but looking at the lives of some people, one can see that it is never too late to start.

Here is a summary of Britt-Marie Was Here
A snake is an obsessive woman who cares too much about cleanliness and cleanliness.

The slightest disturbance bothers Marie because she lives according to her own principles and rules and tries to be useful to those around her.

Sometimes people may inadvertently criticize or judge her suggestions, but Marie is kind and important to what others think of her, it is important to Marie that she never hurts anyone.

At a young age, Marie meets two brothers, Alf and Kent, and eventually marries Kent.

After years of living together, Marie finds out about her husband’s infidelity and leaves him for a while.
This motivates Marie to find a job and she decides to believe in herself and pursue her dreams and aspirations.

She becomes the caretaker of the village youth house through the job search office.

This job is a new beginning for Marie and interesting things will happen to her in the future. Even the village children who want to play football ask Marie to coach their small team.

Critique of Brittany’s character; An obsessive and kind woman
The character of Brittany in “Brittany Was Here” is somewhat similar to the character of “Oh” in “A Man Named Oh” and the character of Grandmother in “Grandmother Greets and Says Sorry.”

A characterization that may seem stereotypical and repetitive. This time, too, an old man with obsessions and strange rules and behaviors, but in the end a sweet and kind character that the singer like “Oh” becomes interested in.

There may seem to be similarities between the characters in Beckmann’s novels, but in each of the characters in his work there are unique features that must be explored with a keen eye.

Brit Marie is an invisible woman, no one knows about her. He lives his whole life in fear of dying alone and leaving his lifeless body undiscovered for many days.

Britmari is obsessed with cleanliness and organization. Everything should be tidy and clean, and if not, Marie will feel guilty.

All these characteristics have made Brit Marie an unusual woman with strange and unchanging habits.
This kind of life is boring and unbelievable for most people in society. But Marie finds real security and comfort throughout the story.

The interesting thing about Marie in this book with people in the community is that she, like many people, decides to change just when she is under stress.

When Marie finds life with her husband unbearable, change is her only option.

Beckman’s realism in creating the characters doubles the appeal of his stories.

At the beginning of the story, Marie is a woman who surrenders to her husband’s wishes.
He sacrifices himself for the thoughts and feelings of others in every situation because he does not want others to be offended by him.

For forty years, Marie ignores herself and her dreams to keep others happy.

Many readers will probably identify with Marie’s character as well, as they may have abandoned themselves for the sake of others and are now looking for an incentive to change.

A little while later, Marie enters a village called Borg to work. Borg is a village facing poverty and economic crisis, and most of its shops are closed.
When Marie enters Borg, something strange happens to her.

Without even knowing what football is, he inadvertently starts a football team at the insistence of children and youth.

Marie does not know anything about football, but the singer sees her efforts and hopes to lead the team to the championship.

Marie, who has always relied on her husband and could not do great things without her husband, has now entered a new world called Borg.

Brittany is the silent dimension within us that is waiting to be awakened and to show everyone that wanting is being able.

Marie shows readers that it is never too late to start and change, it is enough for a person to know his abilities and continue with hope and motivation.

Frederick Beckman’s writing style
Some may believe that the people living in cold countries are cold and soulless, and that the writers of these countries are no exception to this rule, and that the climate of their land influences the tone of their writing.

It must be said that this is a misconception that most people have.

Sweden is a cold country, but looking at the works of Swedish writers such as Frederic Beckmann and Jonas Jonasson, who have a humorous language, it can be seen that the geographical climate has no effect on the author’s language.

Frederick Beckman writes true stories with humor and simple language from people in the community.
He has used his life experiences, books, movies and travels from childhood to the present to create his stories.

In his stories, Beckman even uses pervasive and disturbing social issues such as infidelity or suicide and portrays it with a humorous look. It becomes for him.

An issue that leads to interesting and fun events throughout the story.

It is Beckmann’s art to use the serious subject matter and the smallest detail around him in the dialogue between the characters and the events that take place in the story.

“I’m constantly writing about everyday events,” Beckman said in an interview. Everywhere, behind the envelopes, I put them on my drink and cell phone trays, and finally I put them in my computer.

Sometimes I use my old typewriter or pencil and pen to write.

A dialogue, an idea, a phrase! “Think about it. For example, three weeks later I will find it again in the middle of the hurricane.”
