Us by David Nicholls

I loved One Day by Nicholls, and I also very much liked Us, but man, is it a painful read!

The narrator, Douglas, is getting ready to go on a Grand Tour of Europe with his wife and 17-year-old son when his wife tells him that she is thinking of leaving him. So off they go on their Grand Tour and Douglas tries his best to make things better. He recounts their early courtship as he also tells us about the Grand Tour. We see how him and his wife came together and also what things drew them apart. A study in marital relationships.

Recommended, but remember, it's a painful read!!!
