One of our most anticipated books this fall, Us by David Nicholls is a must-read for all you Savvy Readers! Nicholls is most notably known for his internationally bestselling novel One Day, which follows two characters as their lives intertwine over the span of 20 years. In Us, Nicholls hones his focus on Douglas Petersen as he tries to salvage his failing marriage—and repair his relationship with his young son—over the course of European vacation.
Unlike One Day, which relies heavily on the sentimental idea of soulmates, the strength of Us lies in its painfully honest representation of relationships. Nicholls explores the complexity of marriage and the very real, undesirable reality of “failed” loved (also begging the question: is there such thing as a failed marriage?)
This is an unforgettable novel that is at once heartbreaking, funny, and profound.
