We're never told what happened between 2001 and the 2007 this book is set in, but it must have been something slightly different than what happened in the real world. The 2007 America in Another You seems to have fully given into its post-nine-eleven fears and made them part of its daily life. A little more security, a little less trust, and a growing number of not-quite-right events - but people have adapted and life keeps rolling along.

“Carolyn See has written a novel alive with wit and love and energy–a book about things falling apart that turns out to be a day at the beach. . . . Pure joy.”–Joan DidionAccomplished author Carolyn See triumphantly returns to fiction–seven years after her last novel was published–with this provocative, vibrantly written new novel. Set in a security-obsessed world that eerily mirrors our own, There Will Never Be Another You captures the paranoia and propaganda of a volatile time and place in which humanity’s divisions run deep and society sits on edge–and one Southern California family faces profound crises from within and without.It is a moment in the near future when the global threat of terror has cultivated rage, apathy, and panic across the country. People fear that “anybody could be armed, or have a bomb. Or a disease. Or all three.” For Phil, a dermatologist at the UCLA hospital, it is a time of unease and uncertainty, in stark contrast to the days when he coasted through life on his good looks, a modicum of charm, and only haphazard effort. Now Phil must deal with his mother, Edith, who’s been grieving over the death of her husband for several years and only recently has thought to reconnect with a family that seems to have other priorities. Phil’s energies are already divvied up among his belligerent children, his wayward wife, and his unreliable mistress. Then Phil’s life takes a dramatic turn: He is recruited for a top-secret team whose task is to act quickly in the event of a biological or chemical attack. The assignment just may provide him with a renewed sense of purpose. Yet dire circumstances force Phil to make profound decisions that will affect not just himself and his loved ones but the entire country. It is a chance for an ordinary man to rise from mediocrity to heroism–and at which failure would prove to be catastrophic.Foreboding and all too plausible, There Will Never Be Another You is a cautionary novel of family and society, where a naïve past is replaced by a menacing future in which distinguishing between reality and imagination proves to be more challenging than ever.From the Hardcover edition.

Carolyn See's "The Handyman" is one of my favorite novels. As one Amazon reviewer put it, if you're an artist and/or seeking an authentic life you'll like it.

Maybe my expectations of See after that novel kept me from appreciating "There Will Never Be Another You." But I don't think that's the case.

I read through to about page 70 and just gave up. The characters all whine and complain. I didn't like a single one of them. They didn't need to be nice or perfect, just not whiny.

The clincher for me was the scene at the dinner table with one child swearing and another child slamming his hand on the table and both parents going on as if this is all normal. That scene alone made me hate those two characters (the adults, not the kids who are just reflecting the parents) for being so clueless.

I didn't even make into the major plot - if there is one. I just don't want to waste my time with these annoying characters.

Carolyn See has been unfairly treated by many reviewers over the years. Not sure what that's all about. Her other work is truly great. So it's with reluctance that I slam this novel. But it's unfortunately true. "There Will Never Be Another You" is not a good read.

Sought out this book on a whim while on a Carolyn See binge. Though it focuses on a post 9/11 society with grim and dire warnings about imminent societal collapse, it is at heart a love story. Multiple points of view for characters. Conversational tone. It was fun.

This book is up there with the late Carol Shields "Unless." I just got it, the day it came out, and have read it three times and all my friends love it as well.

Why so great? It's pace is pitch perfect, the various voices work wonders and the ending is so gorgeous it blew me, a writer too, away. In addition, See is hilarious, generous, and writes as if it is easy, which we authors know is not so.

I don't think anyone here wouldn't simply LOVE this book. Go, Carolyn See, may you have great success with this masterpiece filled with love, prophecy, sadness and most of all, somehow you managed to be hilarious all the way thru.

You are my ideal writer. Thank you so much.

This was an unexpectedly good book. Once I started it I couldn't put it down. I finished it in a couple of hours. It was a very real story with a strange twist. I thought about it a lot after I finished it. I am surprised it isn't on a best seller list. If Oprah was still doing her old book club it would be an Oprah pick for sure.

Good read! I recommend it. I would read more of Carolyn See's books. I'm now reading several (not at once) Pulitzer Prize books that I missed over the years. Do you like that idea too?
  • Jake
I think the author had an idea and she had a hard time keeping it going.

I couldn't put it down. The ending was a real surprise! I have always enjoyed her work, and I was happy this book was no different.
Carolyn See is one of my favorite writers. I haven't read her books in a long time and this one turned out at the perfect time for me as I am similar age to the main character and share her mindset. The story is so funny and it takes place in California which is one of my favorite places. There is a sidecar to the story about military and the world we live in that isn't so strange the way things have worked out these day. I really loved the characters except of course except for one of the inlaws.
