    This is a fabulous book which ticks many boxes for ‘things I like in books’ beginning with the author (Backman is my favourite and I was very excited when I found out this was coming out)! I love getting multiple character perspectives in a book and we get plenty of these during Anxious People. There are a lot of clever little moments scattered throughout and it will really tug upon your heartstrings at various points. I laughed, cried and reflected as I read – I loved it.

    A perfect mix of coincidences, great characters, and covers serious subjects with enough humour to make the book feel uplifting overall.
