One day by David Nicholls

‘One Day’ is the 15th July; the story is a snapshot of this day over 20 years. Emma and Dexter are the central characters of this story, and have pledged to be friends forever.

A totally absorbing and emotional read that portrays the feelings they have for each other.

The author has put across a very gritty, down-to-earth story of where and what Emma and Dexter are doing on this ‘one day’ of each year; the ups and downs of their lives and who they are with.

A wonderful book, I found it hard to put down; so will you.

  1. Review for One Day by David Nicholls
    I love human interest books so I was bound to like this one; the story itself being very basic, simply following the lives and the relationship of the two main characters. It did take me about 5 chapters to really get into it. At first I didn’t relate to either character- or particularly like them. Dexter is one of those men who is handsome and knows it, and he comes from a privileged background and has no real aspirations in life other than to travel and meet women. Emma likes to think of herself as being individual, she is an academic and wants to make a difference but somehow they complement each other. It is a story of unrequited love.
    There were some parts of the book that were really sad but the author skipped over them and so the book wasn’t as moving as it could have been. I would have liked the highs and the lows to be highlighted more than they were. Having said that, I still really enjoyed reading it, and I would give it 4 stars.
