Discover this summer’s most irregular love story . . .

Connie’s smart. She’s funny. But when it comes to love, she’s only human.

As a brilliant mathematician with bright red hair – Connie’s used to being considered a little unusual. But when she’s recruited for a top-secret code-breaking project, nothing can prepare her for working with someone quite as peculiar as Luke.

From the Sunday Times bestselling author Jenny Colgan comes a charmingly quirky tale of love, friendship . . . and the possible obliteration of mankind.

‘Quirky, funny and romantic’ Sophie Kinsella

‘A riotous cocktail of geeks’
Matt Haig, author of The Humans

‘It’s not so often that I fall so completely in love with a book . . intelligent, funny, moving and beautiful’ Rowan Coleman, author of The Memory Book

‘Joyous, suspenseful, poignant, funny, heart-breaking, and above all else, a pleasure to read’ Claire North, author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

Jenny Colgan is the author of numerous bestselling novels, including Christmas at the Cupcake Café, Little Beach Street Bakery and Welcome to Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop of Dreams. As Jenny T. Colgan she has also written the Doctor Who tie-in novel Dark Horizons and several Doctor Who short stories.


A joyous genre mash-up that sweeps you off your feet at warp speed. Just amazing
M. R. Carey, author of THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS
Quirky, funny and romantic, and it doesn't even matter if you don't know what fractals are
Sophie Kinsella
A riotous cocktail of action, maths geeks, and kissing. I enjoyed every single page. Resistance really is futile
Matt Haig, author of THE HUMANS
Okay, so I do tend to get excited about books more than the average punter ... but personality-wise, I am not normally one to gush. BUT, I 'loved' Resistance Is Futile. I have not read any of Jenny Colgan's bestselling romance titles, nor her distinctly different science fiction work, but think she's hit the sweet spot with this bridge between the two genre. And she just has so much fun with it.
A brilliant novel full of dark-edged humour about friendship and love and the strange forms they can take...some of them very strange.
Trisha Ashley, author of TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS
[A] beach-friendly tale of romance among the mathematicians. Never mind if the science goes way over your head, Ms Colgan's considerable comic gifts ensure the fun is always on your wavelength.
A bittersweet love story and a race to the finish that leaves you genuinely uncertain as to how the story will end. Never less than entertaining and wonderfully funny at times
Resistance is Futile is funny, romantic and just the right side of geeky. Set phasers to 'fun'...
Danny Wallace, comedian, author and presenter
It's not very often that I fall in love so completely with book . . . Resistance is Futile is bright, charming, intelligent, funny, moving and beautiful, full of wonderful imagination and expert storytelling. I think Jenny was born to write this book.
Rowan Coleman, author of THE MEMORY BOOK
