Just started reading The Humans by Matt Haig.  It starts:

 

"This book, this actual book, is set right here, on Earth. It is about the meaning of life and nothing at all. It is about what it takes to kill somebody, and save them. It is about love and dead poets and wholenut peanut butter. It's about matter and antimatter, everything and nothing, hope and hate. It's about a forty-one-year-old female historian called Isobel and her fifteen-year-old son called Gulliver and the cleverest mathematician in the World. It is, in short, about how to become a human."

 

Ok.  So, here's to hoping that it delivers.
