Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“The Petersen family travels through Europe with more emotional baggage than luggage in Nicholls’s winning follow-up to his 2009 bestseller One Day….Few authors do messed-up relationships better than Nicholls.” (People, Book of the Week)

“Nicholls is a deft craftsman, a skilled storyteller and a keen observer of contemporary mores.” (Jay McInerney, New York Times Book Review)

“In his latest…Mr. Nicholls again deals with love lost and possibly found, offering an unpredictable (and less grim) ending…. Mr. Nicholls mines the setup for laughs, as he should, but he also provides a poignant story of regret in middle age.” (New York Times)

“A great novel...Nicholls is a master of nuanced relationships. He’s also a pro at delivering a tight, clever structural narrative, as he proved in his terrific previous novel One Day.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“I loved this book. Funny, sad, tender: for anyone who wants to know what happens after the Happy Ever After.” (Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You and One Plus One)

“Wonderful. A novel that manages to be both truly hilarious and deeply affecting. I loved it.” (S.J. Watson, New York Times bestselling author of Before I Go to Sleep)

“Nicholls is a delightfully funny writer…and this over-planned vacation makes ripe material for comedy…Us evolves into a poignant consideration of how a marriage ages, how parents mess up and what survives despite all those challenges.” (Washington Post)

“A smartly optimistic romantic comedy that uses angst and humor to illuminate the resilience of the human heart… Part requiem, part reboot, Douglas’s...efforts to preserve his disintegrating family take him on another kind of journey, too, from despair to unexpected joy.” (O Magazine, November 2014)

“A thoughtful, funny, authentic story…Pitch-perfect dialogue and seamless action propel the story forward in a way that feels cinematic.…This is the kind of book that reminds us what it means to be alive. How often does a reader get to feel that?” (Good Housekeeping)

“But for all of their burdens and battles, Douglas and Connie have moments of real joy in their marriage and while it doesn’t always seem like a pleasure, reading about it sure is.” (Time magazine)

Us is a quick read but a charming one; a portrait of two journeys—one measured in kilometers, the other in the heart.” (Seattle Times)

“What happens when domestic bliss becomes rote? Is the past strong enough to bind us together when it happens? Nicholls’ answer is complicated, poignant, wise—and disarmingly human.” (Miami Herald)

“It’s a great combination of laughs and heart…Just what you need on these too-short days, no?” (Sophie Kinsella, Redbook)

“David Nicholls’s latest… is a smartly optimistic romantic comedy that uses angst and humor to illuminate the resilience of the human heart…. Part requiem, part reboot, Douglas’s endearingly inept efforts to preserve his disintegrating family take him on another kind of journey, too, from despair to unexpected joy.” (Oprah.com)

“From the author of One Day—which was infinitely better than the movie—comes a pathos-laden love story about marriage on the brink of collapse.” (Entertainment Weekly, “A Dozen Books We're Dying to Read This Fall.”)

“The bestselling author of One Day…is back with another crowd-pleaser, this time about a man trying to save his collapsing marriage and connect with his teenage son during a family tour of Europe.” (People, Best Books of the Fall (2014))

“Complex family drama...perfect read for the holidays!” (Huffington Post, Top 10 Books to Read This Winter)

“Nicholls is a master of the braided narrative, weaving the past and present to create an intricate whole…. A funny and moving novel.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Nicholls brings his trademark wit and wisdom to this by turns hilarious and heartbreaking examination of a long-term marriage…. This tender novel will further cement Nicholls’ reputation as a master of romantic comedy.” (Booklist (starred review))

“For those who loved One Day, the author’s latest is another heart-grabber about discovering what makes us happy and learning to let go.” (Library Journal (starred review))

“Liked One Day? Then you’ll find this absolutely fabulous.… Very funny and very moving, often at the same time.” (Daily Mail (London))

Présentation de l'éditeur

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize

David Nicholls brings the wit and intelligence that graced his enormously popular New York Times bestseller, One Day, to a compellingly human, deftly funny new novel about what holds marriages and families together—and what happens, and what we learn about ourselves, when everything threatens to fall apart.

Douglas Petersen may be mild-mannered, but behind his reserve lies a sense of humor that, against all odds, seduces beautiful Connie into a second date . . . and eventually into marriage. Now, almost three decades after their relationship first blossomed in London, they live more or less happily in the suburbs with their moody seventeen year-old son, Albie. Then Connie tells him she thinks she wants a divorce.

The timing couldn’t be worse. Hoping to encourage her son’s artistic interests, Connie has planned a month-long tour of European capitals, a chance to experience the world’s greatest works of art as a family, and she can’t bring herself to cancel. And maybe going ahead with the original plan is for the best anyway? Douglas is privately convinced that this landmark trip will rekindle the romance in the marriage, and might even help him to bond with Albie.

Narrated from Douglas’s endearingly honest, slyly witty, and at times achingly optimistic point of view, Us is the story of a man trying to rescue his relationship with the woman he loves, and learning how to get closer to a son who’s always felt like a stranger. Us is a moving meditation on the demands of marriage and parenthood, the regrets of abandoning youth for middle age, and the intricate relationship between the heart and the head. And in David Nicholls’s gifted hands, Douglas’s odyssey brings Europe—from the streets of Amsterdam to the famed museums of Paris, from the cafés of Venice to the beaches of Barcelona—to vivid life just as he experiences a powerful awakening of his own. Will this summer be his last as a husband, or the moment when he turns his marriage, and maybe even his whole life, around?

US by David Nicholls is told in a rich voice and a smooth manner that I enjoyed so much. His setting is wide, varied, rich and colorful, something that is expected for a story with such a bearing. With characters that are engaging and insightful and clever plot that unfolds in a simple but enthralling manner, David Nicholls does a good job making the story compelling throughout the read. This is a rich theme that I like reading again and again and brings to mind other stories such as Splendid Comets, Fall of Giants, and Where I found you. Us is getting my 5 stars for all it has got.

Have just finished this book at one sitting. David Nichols really knows how to write incredibly moving, realistic yet at the same time extremely witty stories, that so many people will certainly be able to relate to. This is one you must read.

This book is not an exciting page turner but it is a great read. I really enjoyed it and I am still thinking of it weeks after (even though I have read a few books since). This doesn't happen to me often hence I've given it 5 out of 5 stars.

Le début du livre est un peu laborieux et les personnages peu attachants. Mais ensuite l histoire prend son envol lors de ce grand voyage initiatique en Europe et on s attache à la destinée du père et des satellites qui rayonnent autour de lui. On resort d Ève livre en se disant qu'il ne faut pas passer à côté de son destin.
