Recension

"Marin Ireland uses her many theatrical gifts in her fine narration of this bittersweet novel. The listener is treated to an exceptional audio experience in which the narrator plays all the parts with nuance and wit. She modulates her pace and tone as she brings this human comedy to life. At once a send-up of Swedish mores and a deeply humane story of contemporary struggles, this novel has characters galore--a banker with a guilty conscience, a father-and-son police team, an inept bank robber who just wants to make rent, an endearing 87-year-old woman who loves books, among others. Often laugh-out-loud funny, the set piece revolves around the taking of 'the worst group of hostages ever.' This is an audiobook to savor."-- "Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award, AudioFile Magazine"

I remember reading A Man Called Ove in 2017 and being smitten by the author’s writing and imagination. I wonder why I didn’t pick up his other books right after that. Anyway, I came across his latest release and decided to order it then and there because I wanted something light, breezy, funny and I knew this author could deliver that to me in a book. The story is set in a small town of Sweden and revolves around the day before New Year’s Eve. After a failed attempt at bank robbery, there is a hostage drama going on in a flat around which the book is set. Following the lives of a host of characters, we witness their sentiments and anxieties evolving with every scene and incident as the plot unfurls. We see their ups and downs, we hear the pain and happiness echoing in their shaky voices, we look at the smallness of life and the immeasurable nature of it as age or time takes control over self. It was funny and a life affirming book. A book that spoke about kindness, and compassion. It is a novel that stops being fiction and speaks closely to us, not in our ears, but to our hearts; how important and beautiful life can sometimes be, even on the worst days. Yes, I have written down praises of this book but I don’t think it is as good as AMCO. I felt the author was ambitious in this book, with too many characters and too many stories. It left little for me to sit with one character and try to know them closely myself. I felt the author telling me all things about life and I don’t like it when an author does that. It begins to seem like a self-help book and I don’t seek that in fiction. I wanted the author simply to show me what lives do these people live. That’s all. However, I do recommend you this book if you are looking for something light and positive. It will put a smile on your face, for sure.

After starting reading 'A Man Called Ove', I became an instant Fredrik Backman. I am really enjoying reading 'Anxious People'. It's as great as I expect from my new favourite writer. I've also ordered all his other books. Looking forward to reading all.
