One Day by David Nicholls
One Day by David Nicholls
4.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 25 Oct 2012
One Day did sometimes delve into the chick-lit genre a few too many times for my liking but overall this is a really solid read with characters you genuinely care about. For much of the book, nothing very sensational happens but the pace is kept brisk and the reader is drawn in by the fully-rounded characters. It's definitely one for the beach!

Harvest is one of the most original and beautiful gay romances I have ever seen. The slow burning film follows the growing attraction between two 'straight' male farmhands. What starts as a tentative friendship turns into something achingly real. The film has such a natural and authentic sensibility that, at times, it almost feels as if you are watching a documentary. The performances are affecting, to say the least, and the actors have a genuine chemistry which shines throughout.

Another Gay Movie this ain't but if you're looking for a coming-of-age story with a difference this is for you!

One of the most eminently quotable comedy shows, Summer Heights High is an inspired mockumentary which is totally deserved of its cult status. Chris Lilley's three protagonists are each hilarious in their own way but the series really shines thanks to the comedian's portrayal of a fame-hungry drama teacher, Mr G. At times the humour can pretty controversial but is always delivered with tongue firmly in cheek. A great series!
