KINDLE ´ Folk med ångest ß Fredrik Backman Else until tragedy changed her life Now she’s obsessed with visiting open houses to see how ordinary people live and perhaps to send an old wrong to right Then there’s Roger and Anna Lena an Ikea addicted retired couple who are on a never ending hunt for fixer uppers to hide the fact that they don’t know how to fix their own failing marriage Julia and Ro are a young lesbian couple and soon to be parents who are nervous about their chances for a successful life together since they can’t agree on anything And there’s Estelle an eighty year old woman who has lived long enough to be unimpressed by a masked bank robber waving a gun in her face And despite the story she tells them all Estelle hasn’t really com move over beartownthere's a new sheriff in town well i guess that kind of depends on what you're in the market for but this book came to me at the perfect place and time in my life and something about that kind of serendipity makes this the superior book to meyou see i was perusing the aisles of target as one does and i was looking for something that i had a never read before and b actually had interest in reading and among the popular fiction i found something to fit the bill this pretty little yellow number and despite some initial misgivings about the title of this book i read the inside flap and was intrigued a book about a bank robber and hostage situation scorebut oh boy it was really not about that in typical backman fashion this book is about humanity the ugly sides and the hopefulness all tied up in an interesting plot that had twists akin to a thriller all while never venturing into preachy life advice territory i'm realizing that this review is a bit of a mess like me and like you read this book it'll likely make your 2020 better

Fredrik Backman ß Folk med ångest EBOOK

Folk med ångestFrom the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove and “writer of astonishing depth” The Washington Times comes a poignant comedy about a crime that never book place a would be bank robber who disappears into thin air and eight extremely anxious strangers who find they have in common than they ever imaginedViewing an apartment normally doesn’t turn into a life or death situation but this particular open house becomes just that when a failed bank robber bursts in and takes everyone in the apartment hostage As the pressure mounts the eight strangers begin slowly opening up to one another and reveal long hidden truths First is Zara a wealthy bank director who has been too busy to care about anyone This is my goodreads 2020 choice as best fiction novel It came at the second place and I adored “ Midnight Library” too But this one still has special place in my heart It’s still my favorite fiction reads of the year Good news This amazing is about to be adapted in Swedish series And fingers crossed I hope Netflix buys this limited series so we may enjoy them This is one of my favorite highly recommended fiction novels of 2020 I think my vocabulary is so limited to express how this book made me feel Yes it shook me so hard but it also entertained the hell of me It was tragic tear jerker but it was also funny enjoyable witty It was action packed riveting heart throbbing but it was also thought provoking complex dazzling deceptive educational and heartfeltI know you got confused How a book makes laugh so hard and then makes you cry like a baby and also hooks you up from its riveting exciting chapters and at some parts you want to stop taking a deep breath to absorb what you read aching for characters feeling their pain but you’re also laughing their ridiculousness This book captivates your heart brain and your soul at the same time and plays with your emotional balance juggling between different genres and you just want to clap the author and take a bow for his remarkable original uniue workHis sarcastic witty and dark sense of humor reminded me of Guy Ritchie’s crimedark comedy scripts Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch and his uirky sarcastic awkward characters slowly warms your heart and entertains the hell of you As soon as I finish it I turned back and reread the police interrogation parts of the book and I laughed over and overSo what this book is about Bunch of idiot people YESAn unsuccessful bank robbery attempt and hostage situation YES What a minute If the robbery is unsuccessful how the thief managed to take hostages And how many hostages he has 8 hostagesIs this book about suicide attempts on the bridge YESIs this about stock markets mortgages banking system and destroying effects of capitalism makes rich people richer and makes you poor yes you may fill the blanks YESI guess you must be confused again but don’t Even though the book looks like a puzzle all the pieces find their right place and so many twists that you may not foresee confuse you but at the end you realize you read something so spectacular make you uestion your morals your judgments beliefs the way you look at the life and test your decencyJack and Jim police officers son and father carrying Whiskey brand names are anxious people who are not happy about their lives polar opposites barely stand with each other but unfortunately they are still colleagues and they’re interrogating hostages about the whereabouts of the bank robber Oh sorry the guy couldn’t rob the bank because the bank didn’t have enough money and young intern just called the cops so the unsuccessful bank robber runs into an apartment viewing 8 people seeing the house become the worst bank robber’s reluctant hostages But I have to admit they are the WORST BATSHIT CRAZY HOSTAGES you may imagineJack and Jim surrounded the building with their colleagues called the big guns from Stockholm to save the hostages from another syndrome but they hear gun shot and when they go to check the building they see the blood stains in the living room but amateur bank robber you’re gonna understand my reasoning why I keep tell the robber this silly name after reading this book is nowhere to be seen So Jack thinks one of the hostages helped the first time robber Or they may hide something from themSo we’re moving back and forth between interrogations the hostages’ back stories secrets the reasons behind they want to see the house And naturally my favorite hostages are sarcastic direct cruel smart entertaining cool Zara and golden hearted Estelle I wish she would be my grandma and her story broke my heart into piecesThe ending of the story or let’s say new beginnings of the characters’ stories was surprising but also heart melting memorable tear jerking And I forget to add what this book is about IT IS ABOUT REAL LOVEThanks to Atria BooksSimon Schuster for sending this special ARC to me in exchange my honest review I love this author’s works so much and this is one of the best books I’ve read on 2020bloginstagramfacebooktwitter
