Book Review: "Us"

   David Nicholls

Mild-mannered Doug Peterson’s life is thrown into a tailspin when Connie, his beautiful, artsy wife of almost twenty-five years announces she wants a divorce.  Determined to win her back and to connect with their moody son, Doug takes the family on a month-long European art tour.  Will Doug be able to change his life and reestablish these broken ties or is he destined to be alone?

Us is beautifully written and examines love, relationships, middle age, and regrets.  With its juxtaposition of art masterpieces and flawed characters with broken relationships, Us is the right combination of beauty and imperfection.
