Anxious People pubs today! Backman Fans: get your orders in with your local bookstores now!
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.

Quick, cute read. I wonder if we are going to get a sequel…don’t fret, it doesn’t end with a cliffhanger (sorry for that light spoiler, you know how I feel about spoilers BUT I HATE cliffhangers even more). Pardon that interruption, we will now continue our scheduled programming:
