Publisher Description

David Nicholls brings to bear all the wit and intelligence that graced ONE DAY in this brilliant, bittersweet novel about love and family, husbands and wives, parents and children.

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2014.

SOON TO BE A MAJOR BBC DRAMA STARRING TOM HOLLANDER AND SASKIA REEVE

Douglas Petersen understands his wife's need to 'rediscover herself' now that their son is leaving home.

He just thought they'd be doing their rediscovering together.

So when Connie announces that she will be leaving, too, he resolves to make their last family holiday into the trip of a lifetime: one that will draw the three of them closer, and win the respect of his son. One that will make Connie fall in love with him all over again.

The hotels are booked, the tickets bought, the itinerary planned and printed.

What could possibly go wrong?

U.S.

Beautifully written if a little melancholic. This novel took a bit longer to sink into than "One Day" but once your are taking in, you cannot but it down. The play between the characters is smart and sensitive, the complexities of modern life beautifully portrayed.

Clichéd and one dimensional

Gave up on this as I had no empathy for the protagonist.

Zzzzz

I was really disappointed with this book. I was getting so bored of the story I wanted to skip to the end to find out what happened instead of having to read it all! Bad ending too.
