The Humans Summary


The Humans by Matt Haig

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME. OR IS THERE? After an 'incident' one wet Friday night where he is 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 . . . ?

The Humans Reviews


Matt Haig's hilarious novel puts our species on the spot * * Guardian * *
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 * *
A novel with an enormous heart, infused with a sense of gratitude for everything that makes us who we are -- Charlotte Heathcote * * Daily Express * *
Haig's unexpectedly raw tale of love, belonging, and peanut butter . . . Funny, clever and quite, quite lovely -- Sam Baker * * Sunday Times * *
Excellent . . . very human and touching indeed -- PATRICK NESS
The Humans is tremendous; a kind of Curious Incident meets The Man Who Fell to Earth. It's funny, touching and written in a highly appealing voice -- JOANNE HARRIS
The Humans is a laugh-and-cry book. Troubling, thrilling, puzzling, believable and impossible. Matt Haig uses words like a tin-opener. We are the tin -- JEANETTE WINTERSON
A brilliant exploration of what it is to love, and to be human, The Humans is both heartwarming and hilarious, weird, and utterly wonderful. One of the best books I've read in a very long time -- S.J. WATSON
