Book Review: Anxious People by Fredrik Backman

I discovered Fredrik Backman the way most people did, through A Man Called Ove. I read it mostly because of the hype, but absolutely fell in love with it. If I had one criticism of that book, however, it would be Backman's unconventional choice of organization, as he spends much time jumping from modern to … Continue reading Book Review: Anxious People by Fredrik Backman

However, this book … Continue reading Book Review: Axiom’s End by Lindsay Ellis
