The Humans by Matt Haig

The Humans (Large Print Edition) - Matt Haig Under The Skin - Michel Faber

Another novel about alien who came to planet Earth to live as human for a while and discover what it is like to be human.


The added twist is the examination of mental illness, and its effect on the sufferer.


At first, I thought it is about metamorphosis, from human to dog or reverse. But no, it is about alien again, using a human skin to live among us and learned to be human.


Is it a common plot device or is it my pick to have similar thing on human. From looking in and use another way to look out what it is like to be human.


Interesting premise again. No movie yet. 


Put that under the "maybe" pile of books.
