Anxious People – novel
An absolutely amazing and touching novel. I did not think the author would be able to match his previous excellent novel – one of my all time favorites – ‘A Man Called Ove’, but he has done it with his latest. I love his writing and how he develops his characters and makes you feel like you are part of their lives.
This is a tragicomedy and one that works so well. The bank robbery that goes awry in an apartment showing – really? – is odd in itself but the people that you meet during this comedic-sad situation will just make you laugh, cry, question life, and more. In the midst of all this is a father and son who just both happen to be the police officers assigned to this hostage/robbery situation. They also have their own personal issues they are dealing with and you get attached to them as well.
I cannot think of anything for which to criticize this novel. It is just so good and I recommend everyone read this and his other novel, ‘A Man Called Ove.’ This is an author who writes with a purpose and makes you ask all the hard questions while enjoying life and making you feel good at the same time!
