Descripción del producto
US is a perfect book. * Independent * The kind of book that reminds us what it means to be alive. * Good Housekeeping * A literary and anthropological tour de force . . . astute and packed with brilliant observations, about life, art, culture and the infinite possibilities for human disappointment. I honestly can't imagine loving a novel much more. -- Christina Patterson * The Sunday Times * I loved this book. Funny, sad, tender: for anyone who wants to know what happens after the Happy Ever After. -- Jojo Moyes I was having to ration myself for fear of coming to the end too soon. * Mail on Sunday * Even better than One Day. * The Times *
Reseña del editor
David Nicholls brings to bear all the wit and intelligence that graced ONE DAY in this brilliant, bittersweet novel about love and family, husbands and wives, parents and children. Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2014.Douglas Petersen understands his wife's need to 'rediscover herself' now that their son is leaving home. He just thought they'd be doing their rediscovering together.So when Connie announces that she will be leaving, too, he resolves to make their last family holiday into the trip of a lifetime: one that will draw the three of them closer, and win the respect of his son. One that will make Connie fall in love with him all over again.The hotels are booked, the tickets bought, the itinerary planned and printed.What could possibly go wrong?Ver Descripción del producto

I laughed and cried my way through it and being a wife and mother put myself in their situations. It was very well written and hard to put down (finished it at 2am on a school night).
I would strongly recommend this book for anyone. Would be really good for a book club too as lots to discuss.
Great quotes at the start of chapters too - I especially liked the one on future parenthood.
Read it and you will not regret it - and may even read it again.
I also don't like books that are predictable and this is not at all which got bonus points in my eyes.
This book is about relationships, stretching ourselves, reaching way out of comfort zones and the complications of living life without challenging it.
Douglas and Connie, the man and wife, seem "real" - and a Grand Tour of Europe in an attempt to salvage the marriage and bond with Albie, the 17-YO offspring, doesn't stretch the bounds of credibility. Several scenarios seem unlikely, but, hey, this is a work of fiction and the author can do with the characters as he likes (or possibly the characters can lead the author around by the nose?).
Albie is presented as the typical (stereotypical?) teenager. There are good reasons why he has a strained relationship with his dad, but I wish that Nicholls could have given a bit more attention to Albie's personality, thoughts, and goals (if any).
I highly recommend any book written by David Nicholls, and put this one at the top of the list. "Us" won't give you profound insights into the meaning of life, but it will raise your spirits and help you realize that family relationships can be dysfunctional and still produce some tender moments. (4-1/2 stars).
