My first Backman book was A Man Called Ove, then I went on to read Beartown and Us Against You; I instantly became an auto-buy Backman fan so when Atria Books provided me with an advanced reader ebook I felt like I WON the lottery!!

Anxious People did not disappoint, the writing was MAGNIFICENT. so clever and sharp. I loved every single character. It wasn’t a thriller per se, but it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.

True to its title, my anxiety level while reading was super high.

In a bank robbery/hostage situation gone wrong we meet a group of misfit characters who drive each other crazy and a bank robber who escapes the police, or are they right under their nose in the form of a hostage? Who is this bank robber who sets off a series of plot lines that test our tear ducts? Try not to cry reading this one, it’s not possible.

Words/thoughts that rattle in my brain when I think of lessons in this book: compassion, humanity, resilience, because of something bad you come to see the good.

Have I convinced you to read this one yet?!

thank you to Atria Book & NetGalley for the advanced reader’s copy
