Just Like You (Hardback)Nick Hornby (author)
With Hornby’s hallmark mischief and piercing observations about human nature, Just Like You is an artful portrayal of the benefits and dangers of head-over-heels attraction.
The person you are with is just like you: same background, same age, same interests. The perfect match. And it is a disaster.
Then, when and where you least expect it, you meet someone new. You seem to have nothing in common and yet, somehow, it feels totally right.
Nick Hornby's brilliantly observed, tender but also brutally funny new novel gets to the heart of what it means to fall surprisingly and headlong in love with the best possible person - someone who is not just like you at all.

“Very disappointing and way too much Brexit. Not an escapist read”
I have enjoyed Nick Hornby's previous fiction but this one left me wanting more. Or less (about BREXIT). It is very much a novel of its time and I don't think it will be one that is still being read in years... More
