The Humans by Matt Haig 


THERE'S NO PLANET LIKE HOME After an 'incident' one wet Friday night where he was found walking naked through the streets of Cambridge, Professor Andrew Martin 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 an alien species and hates everyone on the planet. Everyone, that is, except Newton, (and he's a dog).

Who is he really? And what could make someone change their mind about the human race?


"A wonderfully funny, gripping and inventive novel. Like Kurt Vonnegut and Audrey Niffenegger, Haig uses the tropes of science fiction to explore and satirise concepts of free will, love, marriage, logic, immortality and mercy with elegance and poignancy" ? The Times

"Great idea, great plot and superb comedy, especially from the alien's puzzled analyses of primitive human ways" ? Daily Mail

"Matt Haig is a supreme talent and a writer to cherish, and The Humans is undoubtedly his magnum opus" ? Guardian
