Book Review -- One Day

One DayOne Day by David Nicholls

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Wow. This one reminded me of "The Time Traveler's Wife" without all the time travel.

Two people meet the day of graduation, knowing they are to set out on their separate ways the next day. What follows is a visitation of their lives over the next 20 years, each July 15. The events that occur in between are what made this book hard to put down, and in fact are the reason I needed extra caffeine after a long night of reading.

I loved the book -- highly recommended.

  2. I've heard about this book but wasn't sure about it. I might need to go get it now since I loved Time Traveler's Wife.

  6. I might try it - although sometimes reading a full book in english is hard for me. Maybe for our summer vacation....

  7. Next weekend my brother, age 42, is marrying a woman he knew slightly in high school. Neither one of them has ever married before. They kept meeting up over the years, and two years ago seems to have finally been the right place at the right time, even though he was living on the East Coast and she was on the West Coast. Of course this idea may have nothing to do with the book, but the connection popped into my head. I'm going to see if the library has it.
