Description

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME. OR IS THERE? After an 'incident' one wet Friday night where Professor Andrew Martin is found walking naked through the streets of Cambridge, he is not feeling quite himself. Food sickens him. Clothes confound him. Even his loving wife and teenage son are repulsive to him. He feels lost amongst a crazy alien species and hates everyone on the planet. Everyone, that is, except Newton, and he's a dog. What could possibly make someone change their mind about the human race. . . ?

    One of the most thoughtful books I've ever read! It's a break from what you are and a chance to know who you are. I recommend that book with 5 stars.

    I loved this book from start to finish.. Wow what a viewpoint of life, made me realise all the special things in life we take for granted. Loved the main character, made him seem so human and real.. Well worth a read.

    I could not put this down. It is so engaging. A book you can loose yourself in and find yourself in. It made me laugh, cry, hold my breath and yearn for more.

    Refreshingly different, funny, observational, warm and emotional. All of these words describe Matt Haig's "The Humans". I loved it instantly because it was different and loved it even more because it ended exactly how I wanted it to. A wonderful book I shall read again. (So good I bought my mother a copy).

    Different and interesting, this wouldn't usually be the type of book I would select. I decided to read after seeing some of Matt Haig's wise words on Twitter. I loved how it made me think about real fundamentals of human life whist making me laugh out loud. Great read :)

    A touching and poignant evocation of what it means to be alive and why, given the choice, most of us would choose love, family and human frailty over unlimited knowledge and immortality. I will come back to this one again and again I'm sure, a wonderful book.

    I rarely write reviews and find it difficult to find books I enjoy, but I really enjoyed this book, so it deserved one! It's a very interesting perspective on humans and life and witty too. Great book!
