I read a book over the weekend. Let me just state that again: I-READ-A-BOOK-OVER-THE-WEEKEND. It’s news in my world simply because I think I’ve probably managed to read about 2 books in the last year, so mentally crowded is my life with the demands of motherhood and work and (lately) commuting and threenage tantrums combined with a general need to spend the two hours of the day I have to myself vegetating in front of the iPlayer.
I guess that must say something about this book. It’s called The Humans and it’s written by a guy called Matt Haig. I’ve read one of his other books, The Radleys, but I bought this one for my sister as a gift a while ago after reading an intriguing review. It just so happens that she gave it a rave review herself and recently lent me her copy – an actual hard copy as well (I’m so used to reading everything on Kindle nowadays).
