"Just Like You is a brilliantly observed, tender, but also brutally funny new novel that gets to the heart of what it means to fall surprisingly and headlong in love with the best possible person--someone you didn't see coming"--

Zwar gelingt es Nick Hornby hier ziemlich gut zu beschreiben, welche Schwierigkeiten eine Beziehung zwischen zwei Menschen mit sich bringt, die zwar in derselben Stadt, aber deshalb noch lange nicht in derselben Welt leben, allerdings bleibt er er für meinen Geschmack zu sehr an der Oberfläche und schafft es nicht, mir die Motivation der beiden Charaktere nahezubringen, für die Beziehung zu kämpfen und auch mal den unbequemen Weg zu gehen.

This books lacks the charm of Hornby's other works which is a shame because a May-December interracial romance seems like a good canvas on which he could have worked his magic. Instead, not much happens here. Joseph largely ignores the issues his relationship with Lucy is bound to encounter and she seems determined to keep poking at their age difference as if she wants him to realize he's too young for her. Brexit is a significant side issue which was interesting to me as an American but may be a bore for those who were most impacted by the debate and subsequent vote. Not terrible but nothing to rave about either. ( )

I was captivated by the first part of Just Like You. Lucy was spunky. Joseph was handsome and thoughtful . Their burgeoning relationship felt vivid. As I continued to read, my feelings shifted. it felt as though the colour was slowly fading from the story. The tension between Joseph and Lucy just wasn’t there. I wanted to like this. I wanted to feel something powerful. Anger, disgust, giddiness, joy... Instead, I was left with a beige feeling of blah.

This might be a good book for when the world feels too intense. Interesting enough to read but not poignant enough to make me force it upon all who I encounter. ( )

Nick Hornby's Just like you tells the story of Lucy and Joseph, two Brits who could not be more different. Set against the backdrop of the Brexit referendum in the UK, Lucy meets Joseph who works in a butcher's shop in North London. She is a teacher, head of her department, mother of two, separated from her husband but not yet divorced, white, in her forties. Joseph is 22, black, works many jobs, wants to become a music producer one day and has never had a long-term relationship. But as the saying goes, opposites attract. First Joseph is hired by Lucy to babysit her kids while she is out dating, but quite quickly both notice their attraction to one another and start a relationship that is secret at first but slowly becomes more public. Can such a relationship work, though? This is what Hornby explores in his novel.

While I liked the setting of the novel, I did not find the plot particularly exciting. Maybe this is because I found many turns quite predictable and was not surprised by the general direction the couple was heading towards. For me, the strength of the novel lies in the dialogs and the everyday-ness of the conversations not just between Lucy and Joseph, but also between them and their friends and family. On the whole, Just like you grew on me during the reading process, but did not completely win me over. 3 stars. ( )

Lucy verliebt sich in Joseph. Eigentlich kein Problem. Doch die beiden könnten verschiedener nicht sein. Lucy ist 42, alleinerziehende Mutter zweier Jungs, Lehrerin. Joseph, 22, schwarz, hält sich mit diversen Jobs über Wasser. Lucy gehört zum Bildungsbürgertum, Joseph stammt aus einem schwierigen Milieu Londons. Die beiden leben ihr Glück aus, ohne sich Gedanken über die Zukunft zu machen. Doch die aktuellen gesellschaftlichen und politischen Themen wie der alltägliche Rassismus oder die bevorstehende Brexit-Abstimmung machen auch vor ihrer Beziehung nicht halt und bringt die beiden in einen Konflikt ... - Nick Hornby (zuletzt ID-A 15/20) gelingt es in seinem neuen Roman, die drängenden Fragen der Gesellschaft Großbritanniens anhand einer ungleichen Liebesbeziehung darzustellen. Sprachlich schnörkellos fesselt die Geschichte durch kluge Dialoge, die von Leichtigkeit und intelligentem Humor leben. Die Protagonisten sind fein beobachtet charakterisiert und bekommen genug Raum für die jeweils eigene Sichtweise. Das gelungene Porträt eines gespaltenen Landes. Unbedingt empfohlen für alle Bibliotheken. ( )

Were we to evaluate people, not only according to their intelligence and their education, their occupation and their power, but according to the kindliness and their courage, their imagination and their sensitivity, their sympathy and generosity, there could be no classes. Who would be able to say the scientist was superior to the porter with admirable qualities as a father, the civil servant with unusual skill at gaining prizes to the lorry driver with unusual skill at growing roses?
