One Day (Vintage Contemporaries) by David Nicholls
One Day (Vintage Contemporaries)

William Steelman, May 9, 2012

An interesting read and not just for the(possibly) unique method of telling the story. In a way, I suppose it is simply less confusing than The Time Travelers Wife. We are simply meeting two people as they meet through life. A reason to read this book is to understand that the characters are clearly drawn far better and more completely than could possibly be completed in the movie by the same name.

Having watched the movie first, I had very little motivation to pick up the novel as the movie did not do much more than draw one dimensional characters. Seeing these two move through life from a distance left little to like. Reading the novel, the pieces are filled in and though I still am not sure about all motives (like life), it is far more satisfying.
