Customer reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed 'One Day', entertaining and easy to read - I would recommend this to anyone after a good holiday read. For the Antipodean its fun to read about the different locations across London and the UK and get an insight into how things were in the 80's and 90's.

average storyline, poorly written characters, didnt drag me into the story at all... fairly disappointed.

By Alex Hellyer 14 Nov 2011 5

I absolutely loved this book. From beginning to end. I also saw the film but it was terrible and didn't translate the book well. It's sad, funny and overall uplifting. I don't think I've enjoyed any book more than I did this one. Although we only get a chapter a year it may seem to fast paced, but I honestly didn't feel that way. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who is considering it.

I honestly KNEW these people as I became completely caught up in their lives.
What a clever way to record the events in the lives of these great characters, one particular day (date) of each year. Great authorship in the way my emotions swayed from one character to the other as events unfolded. I laughed out loud, scoffed, cursed and cried! So sad that it had to end!

By Laura 10 Nov 2011 4

I really enjoyed this book. It did admittedly take pages and pages of endless dribble to FINALLY get into it, but once you did it is really quite an enchanting love story. I say read it - BUT WITH SOME PATIENCE.

Review quote

ONE DAY is destined to be a modern classic. Daily Mirror Big, absorbing, smart, fantastically readable. Nick Hornby A wonderful, wonderful book. The Times I finished it last night and I'm still quite wobbly and affected by it. It was BRILLIANT... the jealousy nearly made me puke. I wish I'd written this book. Marian Keyes I couldn't think of anyone who wouldn't love this book. Simon Mayo Books Panel, BBC Radio Five Live An unputdownable romance for the 21st century. SHE A genuine tear-jerker as well as laugh-out-loud funny. Independent on Sunday Books of the Year 2009 This perfectly executed novel is a reminder that reading can be the finest entertainment there is. Guardian
