Staff Reviews


Backman's genius is the way he lulls the reader into believing this is a comic caper. It is on the surface the story of an inept bank robber and the apartment hunters the bank robber accidentally takes hostage. But every character is so much more than you are initially led to believe. As their secrets and sorrows rise to the surface, you begin to realize that we all have much we hide and all of us can be made to appear foolish.

“This book made me feel all the feels! It was sad, it was funny, it was hopeful, it was everything. The character development is incredible at revealing what’s inside each of the characters, and the way their stories link and interconnect is genius. It’s a story about sadness and hope and human connections. I couldn’t put it down and barreled to the end, but now I am sad it’s over. Anxious People is truly the best thing I’ve read in a long time!”
