Us by David Nicholls

P1070100A simple, plain man is on a mission of saving his family. He blunders about without much hope even though he plans everything with military precision. I am relishing this book – still reading and re-reading it.

It isn’t a book that you must finish quickly – rather savour it slowly and enjoy every gem of his wit and style. You will be taken on a journey, and that is precisely what the book is – a journey across Europe and across a man’s life.

There is poignancy and humour, characters who are perfectly imperfect and stoicism in the face of the world rolling over Douglas’s life.
