Omtale Oss
Møt Douglas Peterson, 54 år. Han er en nokså vellykket mann. Bortsett fra at han føler seg gammel. Og at livet hans går i oppløsning rundt ham. Kona Connie, som han elsker så høyt og har vært gift med i 21 år, har nettopp fortalt at hun vil gå fra ham. Sønnen Albie har blitt 18 og kan nesten ikke snakkes til lenger, og til høsten flytter han på college. Snart er alt borte. De skal bare på ferie først. En siste ferie sammen, en siste ferie for «oss»: reisen gjennom Europas storbyer som de har snakket om så lenge. Underveis skjønner Douglas at det er for tidlig å gi opp. Han legger en plan: en plan for å vinne tilbake sin kones kjærlighet og gjenopprette forholdet til sønnen - ett steg av gangen.

Anmeldelser Oss

«Han skriver med vidd. Han turnerer gjenkjennelig stoff på en glimrende»
Brynjulf Jung Tjønn, VG

«loved this book. Funny, sad, tender: for anyone who wants to know what happens after the Happy Ever After.» 
Jojo Moyes, forfatter


«Nicholls writes with such tender precision about love, this time about a type of relationship often neglected as unsexy - the long-married couple.» 
Janice Turner, The Times

«Of course, a reviewer is only ever respected if he demolishes someone's work and even if he loves it can often feel duty-bound to toss in at least one criticism. But I'm not going to do this as I think Us is a perfect book. And I don't care if that means I've failed as a reviewer, because I've already won as a reader.»
Matt Cain, The Independent

«Nicholls is a master of the braided narrative, weaving the past and present to create an intricate whole, one that is at times deceptively light and unexpectedly devastating (...) this is a funny and moving novel perfect for a long journey.»
Kirkus Review

«Booker Prize judges tend to be hairshirt-ish about literature, and are fortified by the puritanical suspicion that too much enjoyment is bad for the soul. This is the only reason I can imagine for their failure to admit Us to the Booker shortlist.»
Craig Brown, Daily Mail

«Extremely funny.»
Christina Patterson, The Sunday Times

«The tearful fans of One Day — the five million people who bought it around the world in 40 languages, his agent, his publishers, the film producers who would like to option his new novel — can relax. Actually, they can rejoice. Nicholls has done it again.»
David Sexton, Evening Standard

«A wrenching examination of a journey through Europe that goes terribly wrong and a consideration of what it means to be a parent today.»
Philip Hensher, The Guardian

«Us is a quiet joy, written with an undemonstrative simplicity that is hard to achieve. It’s also a novel that captures the zeitgeist and will speak to many middle-aged people who find that their marriage has run its course and realise they must start out on a new romantic journey.»
Tim Auld, The Telegraph
