The bestselling, award-winning author of The Midnight Library offers his funniest, most devastating dark comedy yet, a “silly, sad, suspenseful, and soulful” (Philadelphia Inquirer) novel that’s “full of heart” (Entertainment Weekly). When an extra-terrestrial visitor arrives on Earth, his first impressions of the human species are less than positive. Taking the form of Professor Andrew Martin, a prominent mathematician at Cambridge University, the visitor is eager to complete the gruesome task assigned him and hurry home to his own utopian planet, where everyone is omniscient and immortal. He is disgusted by the way humans look, what they eat, their capacity for murder and war, and is equally baffled by the concepts of love and family. But as time goes on, he starts to realize there may be more to this strange species than he had thought. Disguised as Martin, he drinks wine, reads poetry, develops an ear for rock music, and a taste for peanut butter. Slowly, unexpectedly, he forges bonds with Martin’s family. He begins to see hope and beauty in the humans’ imperfection, and begins to question the very mission that brought him there. Praised by The New York Times as a “novelist of great seriousness and talent,” author Matt Haig delivers an unlikely story about human nature and the joy found in the messiness of life on Earth. The Humans is a funny, compulsively readable tale that playfully and movingly explores the ultimate subject—ourselves.

"A writer only creates a character from their point of view. They might give them a personality, a look, and relationships, but what they really are and what they become depends on the reader." An unusual red string connects the high school student Kotonoha to the schools cross-dressing delinquent Akira. Once he found out her secret - Kotonoha is the country's most known online novelist - he blackmails her into a relationship with his friend Yukinari. But she soon notices there is more to this story than just a make-believe romance. This novel is the second one of a three-volume book series that started on textnovel.com in 2011 as "Honey Moon Marmalade". Honey Moon Marmalade won the Editors' Choice Award on Textnovel in 2012 for Best Cell Phone Novel and Original Style.It was ranked number six in the Top 10 Most Read novels, live and regularly updated until the site's closure in May 2018. The novel explores several views of other characters through flashbacks and a variety of different writing mediums within its world while tying back into the main story at the end of each arc. The minimalistic writing style is the result of blending poetry and prose, staying as close to the original style of Japanese cell phone novels as possible.
