Introduction

NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE starring ANNE HATHAWAY and JIM STURGESS

It’s 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met. But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another. Over twenty years, snapshots of that relationship are revealed on the same day—July 15th—of each year. Dex and Em face squabbles and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. And as the true meaning of this one crucial day is revealed, they must come to grips with the nature of love and life itself.


"One of the most hilarious and emotionally riveting love stories you'll ever encounter." —People

#1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

  "One Day, David Nicholls"by kdangle17 (see profile) 10/14/11

I liked the format, one entry each July 15th for 20 years, this kept me interested and then it just became dull. This formats continues to work to some degree until the last 50 pages then th... (read more)

  "Looking At A Relationship on the Same Day For 20 Years"by vrtikapa (see profile) 08/27/11

We were split on this book, some loved it, some hated it, some were in the middle. Sometimes it was a bit frustrating and sometimes funny.

 
  "Could have been much better.."by rsmulever (see profile) 07/07/11

Loved the idea, thought it will make a good reading and we were looking forward for a great discussion about it but did not meet anyone's expectations, it was slow, boring, not insightful and unsophisticated...... (read more)

 
  "One Day"by Lacy3711 (see profile) 05/13/11

I liked this book. You want them to be together and it takes so long and does not last however it is a good story that follows them through their lives and continually brings them back together

 
  "Interesting Writing Style"by ebburtis (see profile) 03/20/11

While our group wasn't thrilled with the book, it ended up leading to a pretty good conversation. We talked a lot about the character development and whether it was believable and also Nicholl's writing... (read more)

 
  "One Day"by mcheetham (see profile) 02/17/11

Info. on front and back covers are misleading. How does this qualify as a romance novel when the characters showed no affection or real emotional involvement? My copy is going into the wastebasket. ... (read more)

 
  "unlikeable"by becca1010 (see profile) 02/17/11

Both characters are so unlikeable. Dex was a immature jerk and never grew up, and Emma was just dumb not to move on to a healthy relationship. Pointless. The book went in the trash. UGH!
