- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 November #1
Fredrik Backman's bestseller spotlights a hostage scenario caused by a failed bank robbery the day before New Year's Eve as the escaping masked perpetrator crashes an apartment open house. The quirky captivesâa relentless real estate agent who's a veritable cheerleader for her company, an elderly woman, a mismatched young couple, a stoner, and more have short chapters written from each person's viewpoint. Though some listeners might find various idiosyncrasies bizarre, reader Ireland believably voices men and women of all ages, ambitions, and despairs with their funny, heartbreaking and heartwarming lives and memoriesâa little boy who'd sold magazines so Mom could buy food for Christmas dinner, but realized she hadn't as "he looked her in the eyes, which were shiny from alcohol and tears"; and a grandmother's understanding that importance was walking a toddler home from preschool. More than a robbery, Anxious People concerns love and loss, warmth and loneliness, and the everyday idiocy of life that makes us human. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
