Which character surprised you the most?

Which, if any, of the characters in My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She's Sorry surprised you the most? Why?

RE: Which character surprised you the most?

Britt-Marie was the most surprising character for me. She seemed very regimented and tense in her behaviors. There are moments (close to the end of the book) when she is sweet and actually tender to Elsa. In the end of the book, she starts anew and frees herself from many of the constraints of her life (including her overbearing husband).

I would also have to say Britt-Marie. She was the caring person who looked after Elsa mother and yet she was the control freak who wanted to run everything in their building. In the end when she finally admitted to how awful her husband had been to her and decided to change her life I was so happy for her.

I would have to agree that Britt-Marie was the most surprising, but even she wasn't all that terrific of a character. I just wasn't very impressed with any of the characters in this book. Not like "A Man Called Ove".

I think Granny was the most surprising character to me. Because even though she died fairly early on in the plot she remained very much the heart of the story throughout.everything came back to Granny in one way or another.

I was expecting Britt-Marie to be the biggest surprise but actually when I think about it I'd have to say it was Granny. As you begin to find out more about her she becomes a very fascinating woman who lived well before her time. She was also a very strong woman who did what she wanted to do and on her own terms. AND she enjoyed her live. I believe she wanted Elsa to do the same.
