I’m not sure if there’s a word to describe that feeling of electricity you get when you read a book by a talented author you’ve never read before, but let’s just say The Humans by Matt Haig will make you experience whatever that word might be.
The Humans is narrated by an extremely logical alien from a distant planet , a place where individuality doesn’t exist. He has just arrived on Earth with a mission: to wipe away all evidence of a recently deciphered math equation called the Reimann Hypothesis. Worked out by Professor Andrew Martin, this solution would allow humans to unlock new forms of technological innovation and would likely result in the destruction of multiple planets. To carry out his mission, the narrator is transformed into the likeness of the ill-fated Professor and is prepared to destroy anyone or anything that gets in his way; however, he must first overcome an unexpected roadblock to destroying the Professor’s notes: not having any pants.
