Itching to read a dark and insightful novel that gives a bird’s eye view of how incredibly messed up we humans can be sometimes? Then you’ll enjoy Matt Haig’s The Humans, a novel chock full of delightful black humor and important observations about human civilization.
The narrator of the novel is an alien who is assigned to observe humanity with the help of his partner, a Cambridge University math professor named Andrew Martin. At first the alien is disgusted at humanity’s antics, such as our tendency to go to war over any little thing and our propensity for murdering our own kind.
