Anxious People by Fredrik Backman pdf free download
An apartment open house becomes a life-or-death situation when a failed bank robber storms in and holds a bunch of strangers hostage. A newly retired couple is among the prisoners, who are persistently looking for fixer-uppers to avoid the terrible reality that they can’t mend their own marriage.
There’s a rich bank director who’s been too preoccupied with his work to care about anybody else, and a young couple who are expecting their first kid but can’t seem to agree on anything, from where they want to live to how they met in the first place. Add in an 87-year-old woman who has lived long enough to not be terrified of someone brandishing a pistol
Each of them carries a lifetime of grievances, hurts, secrets, and passions that are ready to boil over. None of them is entirely who they appear to be. And all of them—the bank robber included—desperately crave some sort of rescue. As the authorities and the media surround the premises these reluctant allies will reveal surprising truths about themselves and set in motion a chain of events so unexpected that even they can hardly explain what happens next
Rich with Fredrik Backman’s “pitch-perfect dialogue and an unparalleled understanding of human nature” (Shelf Awareness), Anxious People is an ingeniously constructed story about the enduring power of friendship, forgiveness, and hope—the things that save us, even in the most anxious time.
