Anxious People submitted by jldetlefs on March 30, 2021, 10:53pm Fredrik Backman just keeps getting better and better. This quirky novel has it all - it is poignant, funny, yet deeply thought provoking about relationships, depression, suicide and society expectations. All wrapped up his incredible prose. It is almost like a play or a movie. It does go back and forth in time and is a bit disconcerting as to what is happening or what will - with exceptional plot twists, but all ends up well, but I loved it - so much so I am going to buy myself a copy - I want to highlight passages. Just a wonderful writer - best work ever. Laughed, cried and will reread it again.

Wonderfully touching submitted by Es Star on April 18, 2021, 2:59pm A great story. At first it seemed a bit silly, until you read further and realize what is going on.
I re-read it after I finished -- and loved it again. A marvelous fairy tale connecting us all.

Stupid? submitted by Linda Rama on July 27, 2021, 7:30pm It was a fairly silly read. I think there were so many stupid conversations going on and ridiculous characteristics of the people being written about , that maybe it should be the title. Is anyone really relating to these characters? Then yes go seek help! Good Luck!!!!!

Anxious people submitted by nmrhoads on July 27, 2021, 8:51pm This book was amazing. It made me cry. My favorite type of story is when all the people are connected and you slowly figure out how and why they all ended up in the same place at the precise time
