Description

If you loved One Day and The Rosie Project, you will fall head-over-heels for The Two of Us.

Falling in love is the easy part. What matters most is what happens next...

Fisher and Ivy have been an item for a whole nineteen days. And they just know they are meant to be together. The fact that they know little else about each other is a minor detail. Over the course of twelve months, in which their lives will change forever, Fisher and Ivy discover that falling in love is one thing, but staying there is an entirely different story.

The Two of Us is a charming, honest and heart-breaking novel about life, love, and the importance of taking neither one for granted.

From Publishers Weekly

02 November 2015 – In this entertaining romcom set in present-day England, Fisher and Ivy have been dating for all of 19 days when Ivy finds out that she's pregnant. Rolling with the punches, they decide to move in together and build a shared life. As Fisher, a director of commercials, so aptly puts it, they've "leapfrogged the romance and gone straight to starting a family and passing out in front of the telly." Over nine months (and slightly beyond), the author charts the course of this new relationship and instant family, which is not all smooth sailing. Fisher and Ivy are informed that they'll be having twins; Ivy's loutish brother, Frank, moves in with them temporarily; and Fisher is tempted to flirt with an attractive colleague. Adding poignancy to the story is the presence of Fisher's best friend, El, who is in the terminal stages of Huntington's disease. The premise is contrived, but Jones proves himself adept at writing sensitively about modern relationships. The story is told solely from Fisher's point of view, which unfortunately renders Ivy somewhat opaque. His narration is charming but facile until the last chapters, which achieve a touching honesty as Fisher and Ivy are forced to deal with a tragedy that lends a dramatic aspect to this otherwise lightweight romantic novel.

Customer Reviews

Warms and breaks your heart

The most heartwarming, heart wrenching book I've read. Ever. I fell in love with the characters in this book so much that I felt part of their world, and I didn't want it to end. The two of us tells the story of Fisher and Ivy, who are meant for one another but have to face up to more than their fair share of challenges in the early stages of their relationship. It is written with wit, humour, sensitivity and an intelligence that goes far beyond the genre. It's easily in the same league as One day, About a boy and The time travellers wife, and would make an amazing film. Definitely worth a (highly recommended) read. I loved it and hope to read more from this author.
