Anxious People is sweet and sad, strange and authentic. The writing and characters are great. Some parts are ridiculously silly, other parts are very real and heart-rending. I'll definitely read more by this author.

I listened to the audiobook and the narrator does an amazing job.

This was just beautiful. It captures the fear and confusion and regret of the Alzheimer's patient so clearly, and the tender loving care of his son and grandson trying to help him travel that long road without fear. It's beautiful. I closed the book at the end, sighed deeply....and bawled my eyes out for an hour.

B+ (Very good).

Strangers become friends while being held hostage. It was difficult to get through the first 50 pages, where Backman puts on a bitter front, talking directly to the reader about What's Wrong With The World Today. But as he pulls back the layers of the characters, it turns into something lovely and sappy (in a good way).
