Anxious People by Fredrik Backman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fredrik Backman has a way of developing characters that pull you into a story and don’t let go. For those who have trouble with timelines that are not exactly linear, this might be a hard read, as Backman delivers information from various parts of the timeline out of order. Just as in real life, character development happens in this out-of-order sequence, so at first, I did not care for many of the characters. Still, as I got to know each of them, I began to understand just what this story is about, and I could not put this book down, reading it cover to cover in one day.
