Book Description

With almost five million copies sold in Italy, Fabio Volo’s books have made him the unquestionable king of Italian romantic comedy

Giacomo’s life could not be more enviable. He is young and good with women, has inherited an apartment, does well at work, and always manages to escape any sort of commitment. But he feels trapped in a monotonous life that shows no signs of changing . . . Who knew success could be so boring? His routine is finally interrupted when a captivating young woman invites him out for coffee, and so begins a love story full of the realities of modern relationships.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unforgettable story 2 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I've always been a fan of Italian literature. But, I don't really know what it is that makes me like books by Italian authors so much. Perhaps it's the way they write; like good old storytellers. Perhaps it's the subjects they occupy themselves with; like love and remembrance. Or perhaps they seem familiar to me because I also come from a country that's washed by the Mediterranean Sea. Whatever the reason, Italian books make me feel good, and the one at hand does that better than most.

One More Day is the story of two seemingly different people that cross paths time and again. At the beginning that happens by pure luck, but as time goes by they start trying to steal glimpses of each other at any given chance. He's Giacomo and she's Michela, and their story is a story of love and loss, of failure and new beginnings.

As we follow the heroes from Italy to New York, and finally to Paris, we get to know them very well; and we get to like them. They are very human, full of weaknesses and fear, full of hopes and dreams. I guess one could say that the whole story revolves around dreams. The dream of getting away from everything and everyone that keeps you trapped in a cage; the dream of starting anew in a different land; the impossible dream of learning to love all over again by playing a game.

That's what Giacomo and Michela do, they play the game of love, time and again, but not for very long. Win or lose, at first that doesn't seem to matter to them. What matters is to get to know each other well, and to get to enjoy what each of them has to offer. They meet, they talk, they drink, they listen to great music and they make love, and the words flow like a serene stream on the page: "I wanted to become a hunter of emotions and memories," he says.

3.0 out of 5 stars Horrible translation 30 Mar. 2014

I read this book in Italian long time ago and it was fun. So i decided to read it in English but it's definitely much better in the original language.

Translated well, with apparently little lost. This is a book to re-read on a philosophical level after the first read.

At the beginning that happens by pure luck, but as time goes by they start trying to steal glimpses of each other at any given chance. He's Giacomo and she's Michela, and their story is a story of love and loss, of failure and new beginnings.

They meet, they talk, they drink, they listen to great music and they make love, and the words flow like a serene stream on the page: "I wanted to become a hunter of emotions and memories," he says. "We have been kicked outside of ourselves," she states. "She was the door I had the courage to open," he thinks and smiles.

I could keep writing quotes for a long time, but I won't do it, since some of the magic of this book can be found in them, and I wouldn't like to take that pleasure away from you.

I will tell you though, that if you are someone who enjoyed movies like Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight (yes, that great Paris trilogy), you will love this book. The prose is exquisite, the plot is simple and yet intriguing, and the feelings are as real as one could ever find in the pages of a novel. The author seems to inhabit the bodies and the souls of his characters and thus manages to give us a story that's hard to forget. This novel is a must-read for me.

It has taken me a long time to finish this novel, but that was only because I was so enthralled by its heroes and their world that I wished it could go on and on. Of course, there are other books, as there are other stories; stories that remind us about the most important things in life; like how much it matters to be our own selves and chase our own impossible dreams. Just like Giacomo and Michela did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating love story 16 Nov. 2013
By *TUDOR^QUEEN* - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This was an excellent book. The kind that you can get lost in and look forward to reading in all your spare moments.

Giacomo and Michela ride the same tram to work every morning in Italy. Giacomo desperately yearns to see her each morning as he boards the tram. From their stolen glances at each other and their reflections in the tram's windows, it becomes quite clear that they have "noticed" each other. One fateful morning, Michela finally speaks to Giacomo, inviting him for coffee. She's leaving the next day for New York City as she's relocated her job. Feeling a myriad of emotions, Giacomo is tentative and doesn't ask for her email or forwarding information. However, Michela leaves an envelope from her NYC office on the table as she leaves for the rest room. Giacomo jots down the address and stews for several months about whether to make contact with the woman who captivated him on the morning tram rides.

As he grapples with this decision, he is supported by the friendship of Silvia, a former girlfriend and lover, now his best friend. Giacomo's love life is a bohemian existence. He loves to travel, work and make love in a multitude of cities. He is not a gigilo, he is just a product of his experiences with unfaithful girlfriends and the effects of a father who abandoned him. One of the best aspects of the book is the inherent goodness of Giacomo.

Of course, Giacomo decides to find Michela in NYC. She is a fascinating character with unconventional ideas and fiercely independent. The dialogue is so unexpected and interesting which lends to the gripping nature of the book. Their physical passion for each other as well as dining at a wide array of eateries in NYC are a luxurious read. One doesn't know how this unique relationship will pan out, but you're rooting for them the whole way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, quick yet thought provoking read 29 May 2014
By Alicia Walters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The characters in the book are very relate-able. So much so, that I can see me or my closest friends in any of the characters.

The story wraps you up in a journey that throws your heart, mind and what you've been taught about social conventions into a friendly battle.

To see my thoughts and feelings in black and white written by another person makes me feel as though we are all connected by our experiences if nothing else.

Too bad it is not translated in English. I've been reading it in German and was hoping I could find an English translation. It is is a beautiful love story.
