The Humans by Matt Haig
The Humans by Matt Haig
What a refreshing book ! Funny and touching, caustic and philosophical, a book for every human that will remind them some basic principles that many of us may have forgotten... To read absolutely just for the pleasure of getting a smile on your face

5.0 out of 5 stars what a book !, 23 July 2014
I think I read The Firm a long time ago and I can't remember exactly the story. I was looking for a new book and i found this one. It is apparently the very first boom of John Grisham who sold at a few thousand copies only when it was first published. However John Grisham himself considers this book as his best and after reading it, I understand why ! You will cry of pain, you will cry of joy, you will laugh, you will fear for them but John Grisham takes you into a wonderful ride. My advice: read it !

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely fantastic !, 23 Mar 2014
What a book ! One of the best I've ever read. Like everyone, I tend to admire surgeons for their capacities. Henry Marsh is right when he says that we, simple patients, see them as Gods and beacons of hope. However, this book tells you the human part of the God. His doubts, his fears, his joys and his pains. Reading this book, I smiled, I cried, I cringed my teeth but it made feel good. I don't know Mr Marsh and I sincerely hope I won't have to arrange a meeting with him but I'm in awe of the man.
