Reviews

The Remains of the Day crossed with Michael Winterbottom's The Trip, only with more Gore-Tex . . . You Are Here is a triumph, a real gift of a novel, and it deserves to join One Day on the bestseller charts immediately
*Sunday Times*

Captivating . . . Nicholls is rightfully attached to his central couple and their baggage of cherished neuroses, until he accepts that he has to decide on a happy ending or something more bittersweet, and how to earn either. He succeeds beautifully. Nicholls's dialogue is flawless (he's also an experienced screenwriter) and even his descriptions of bogs and muck can enchant. The novel is sharp-tongued and irresistible, the most intelligent treat
*New York Times*

A great comic novel . . . The reader becomes so invested in the outcome of this unspectacular, everyday, cagoule-clad romance that it makes the whole world shimmer with a kind of secret possibility, as if such narratives are everywhere, just out of sight
*Observer*

A master of his particular craft. This is a novel that will make you feel terrific
*Financial Times*

The trouble with having a hit novel is that your work will forever be compared with it. But You Are Here is just as good - and possibly even better . . . it makes you want to get out and walk; to seize the day; to do something significant with your life; to not only believe in second chances but to make them happen. It makes you want to tell someone - anyone - that you love or care about them. I can't think of a better testament to the power of a David Nicholls novel than that
*i Newspaper*

For many it will be a comforting antidote to the grimness of our grim world, a crowd-pleaser and, surely, a TV hit-to-be
*Guardian*

Nicholls excels at writing about the complexities of relationships . . . There is an appetising tone throughout the novel, which is full of clever, droll jokes about teaching, relatives, walking, friendship, pubs and motels
*Independent*

Zip up Heathcliff in Gore-Tex, give Cathy laugh-out-loud lines, fold in the poignancy of E. M. Forster, embed quaint maps, blisters, a dash of existential terror and heaps of heartache and you have David Nicholls's latest novel . . . like all great rom-coms, the journey that Nicholls takes Michael and Marnie on is more meaningful than the destination
*Spectator*

As a longtime fan of Nicholls' writing, I had huge expectations for this book and it absolutely delivered . . . I'm calling it now - this will undoubtedly be one of my best books of 2024
*Good Housekeeping*

You Are Here is an unusual novel, unusual for our time anyway. It is amusing and true to life. It is gentle, free from fashionable extravagance . . . Nicholls is a novelist who brings understanding to his work; also, happily, he is often very funny
*Scotsman*

Nicholls's latest has the irresistible feel of a classic romance
*Mail on Sunday*

Nicholls tackles modern loneliness in this witty and warm love story for cynics
*Grazia*

He has done it again with this lovely, touching story . . . Nicholls's knack for warm characters, funny dialogue and superb scene-setting is as spot-on as ever. You'll want to pull on your hiking boots at the first opportunity
*Daily Mail*

Funny, emotional and beautiful . . . Nicholls is the king of creating well-drawn, flawed characters that resonate and tug on your heartstrings
*Heat*

Few contemporary writers make characters feel as human as David Nicholls does . . . Nicholls has a knack for finding the magical in the everyday. It's not a pandemic novel, but its themes of loneliness and clinging on to moments of connection feel particularly pertinent after the past few years
*BBC.com*

A poignant love story of first encounters
*Sunday Times*

Refreshing . . . The romance has sincerity and authenticity . . . There were echoes of Curtis Sittenfeld's Romantic Comedy, another book I loved
*Guardian*

2024 is set to be the year of David Nicholls . . . a story of love, chance encounters and new beginnings
*i Newspaper*

No one does the minutiae of love as well as Nicholls
*Observer*

It's Nicholls' best since the Booker-longlisted Us, and I'm already dream-casting the BBC adaptation
*Independent*

Witty and moving at the same time, it's a figurative and literal journey that might even have you hunting for your walking boots
*GQ*

When it comes to love stories, David Nicholls is a master craftsman and, dare I say it, I loved You Are Here even more than One Day
*Red Magazine*

Nicholls is a writer going from strength to strength - his previous novel Sweet Sorrow was his best yet - so this is set to be one of 2024's most exciting titles
*Sunday Express*

A slow-burn love story delivered with Nicholls' trademark wit and warmth
*Grazia*

Oh, how I love, love, love this beautiful story! The observations David Nicholls makes about people and their behaviour are just so astute . . . I can't stop recommending it to everyone
*Prima*

Such a lovely book!
*Nigella Lawson*

A witty, touching love story. The writing is magnificent: taut and vivid. I was so happy while I was reading it and now I'm bereft. Gorgeous
*Marian Keyes, author of AGAIN, RACHEL*

I think it might be Nicholls' best book ever. He's somehow managed to remember exactly how people talk when they're falling in love, which is virtually impossible to do properly
*Caitlin Moran, author of WHAT ABOUT MEN?*

What a rare find this is! Beautiful writing and authentic characters supported by a dry and honest wit. I loved it
*Bonnie Garmus, author of LESSONS IN CHEMISTRY*

A romantic, funny, hopeful story of what it is to lose and keep faith in love. The characters became my friends in an instant and I enjoyed every moment spent with them
*Dolly Alderton, author of GOOD MATERIAL*

A beautiful book. Nicholls perfectly judges the balance between humour and pathos. I was often on the verge of tears even when I was laughing
*Tracy Chevalier, author of A SINGLE THREAD*

You Are Here encompasses all of David Nicholls' characteristic warmth, humour and observational insight. But it also asks fundamental questions of life, love and loneliness in such a beautifully delicate way that you don't even realise it's happening or that the fundamental truth of human happiness has been staring you in the face all along. I don't know how he does it, but he does and he's the only person who can
*Elizabeth Day, author of FRIENDAHOLIC*

The genius who gave us One Day has written another classic and funny love story, set on a ten-day hike. You breeze along and get caught up in it like a leaf in the wind. Joyous
*Matt Haig, author of THE MIDNIGHT LIBRARY*

David Nicholls is at the peak of his considerable powers - You Are Here is not only packed with the delicious observations, profound truths and moving encounters we expect of him, it's the funniest thing he has written. Even if it was twice the length, it would have finished too soon
*Sathnam Sanghera, author of EMPIRELAND*

David Nicholls wears his formidable intelligence so generously and so lightly that you scarcely notice the skill it takes to write a book like this: a story at once passionately funny and richly human. You Are Here is gorgeously witty and joyful, kind and sad: a book you do not want to be away from
*Katherine Rundell, author of SUPER-INFINITE*

Any love story by David Nicholls is a treat, but this one is especially tender, wise and joyful. I inhaled it
*Jojo Moyes, author of ME BEFORE YOU*

You Are Here is everything I hope for from a David Nicholls novel: beautifully observed, very funny, a little heartbreaking, and at its core, full of hope about people and love
*Monica Heisey, author of REALLY GOOD, ACTUALLY*

David Nicholls is a wonderfully gifted writer. His trademark wit and sensitivity bring light and life to his characters, allowing him to explore difficult subject matter with an admirable lightness of touch
*Okechukwu Nzelu, author of HERE AGAIN NOW*

David Nicholls is one of the best writers at chronicling the way annoyance and resentment are often irretrievably mixed with love and empathy. This is a love story but never predictable - Nicholls stays one step ahead of the reader in the sharpest, funniest way. If you're looking for a great comic novel, You Are Here
*Katherine Heiny, author of GAMES AND RITUALS*

A stunning, funny, frank and beautiful look at loneliness, friendship, and the risks taken to love and be loved. In a career of standout books, You Are Here takes its place at the top. David Nicholls is my favourite writer
*Chris Whitaker, author of WE BEGIN AT THE END*

For anyone who has pounded a pavement or even climbed a mountain, wrangling with the stuff of life, love, loss, loneliness, betrayal and failure, or simply destiny's strange peculiarities that can upend life, this book is both journey and destination. It will make your heart soar with the climb. It's so tender and wise, that I found myself walking every step of the way with Marnie and Michael, through the rain and shine, hoping, praying that they would find one another, and at last see the view. It has pain and bliss in its pages, and does what David Nicholls does best: cracks open your heart, to show love in all its infinite beautiful chaos, imperfect, funny yet always true. Loved it
*Abi Morgan, author of THIS IS NOT A PITY MEMOIR*

I loved this book. A story about loneliness and the beginnings of love, with the backdrop of England's lakes and fells and relentlessly changeable weather. As a read it is warm, unsentimental, hilarious and SO acutely observed. Nicholls has given us a masterclass in writing. I want to buy it for all my friends
*Annie Macmanus, author of THE MESS WE'RE IN*

I finished this novel in two breathless sittings, as invested in its outcome as I would be in the happiness of a friend. This is the magic of You Are Here: warm, generous and funny, it invites readers into the world of Marnie and Michael with the promise that everyone is welcome, and that choosing happiness and being courageous in any small way we can is always possible. I loved this book
*Kaliane Bradley, author of THE MINISTRY OF TIME*

You Are Here is a gorgeous, grown-up love story. I fell for Marnie and Michael hard and fast - this book is honest, raw, yet profoundly hopeful. This is the work of a writer at the peak of his enormous powers - it's one of the saddest stories I've ever read, and one of the funniest. A future classic
*Daisy Buchanan, author of INSATIABLE*

Pure and utter delight! You Are Here is a fun, poignant post-pandemic romantic comedy that takes us across the hills and moors of northern England, grapples with loss - of people, of direction - and reminds us vividly and viscerally what it feels like to fall in love
*Lily King, author of WRITERS AND LOVERS*

What a beautiful, beautiful novel, sensitive, witty, and brilliantly insightful and kind about us messy, stupid humans. I loved every single step of it. I will miss it now that I'm finished and I know that it will be one of those rare novels that will dwell in my memory and my heart
*Donal Ryan, author of THE QUEEN OF DIRT ISLAND*

Marnie and Michael are two characters who I will carry in my heart for a long time. This is a love story for all ages, an epic journey, a moving tale of second chances. I don't know how David does it but his characters are real to me, and I know I will want to go back to them, to re-read You Are Here, the way I have his other novels
*Georgina Moore, author of THE GARNETT GIRLS*

Brilliant: just perfect and exquisitely written. Every page is a delight
*Jill Mansell, author of PROMISE ME*

You Are Here is David Nicholls' funniest, warmest and most addictive novel yet. Perfect
*Clare Chambers, author of SMALL PLEASURES*

David is the laureate of the modern love novel, and this is his best yet
*John Niven, author of O BROTHER*

Oh this book! What's better than rooting for two shy, once-burnt characters to recognise that love is within reach? I stopped often to reread and savour its sparkling, wry sentences. You Are Here is both up-to-the-minute and old-fashioned in the best way: sharp, yet so very kind, funny, and bittersweet
*Elinor Lipman, author of Ms Demeanor*

A wryly heartwarming tale of second-chance romance . . . the dialogue crackles off the page . . . pure pleasure
*Bookseller*
