This review is from: One Day (Paperback)Some of the reviews seem to imply that is quite a significant read and some kind of chronicle of our social and cultural history. I suppose it might have been designed as such but it is really pretty shallow. So, now it is 2011 and, surprise surprise, I've been made redundant so I go out and buy an electric car and listen to Olly Murs on my iPod before stumbling off for some geriatric sex. One of those books written with Wikipedia open while the sense of an emerging and growing set of relationships didn't come across for me. Maybe the film will do it better!

Agreed, it was weak, and the occasional references to Iraq didn't make it feel any more solid.. in fact for a book about the 90s and beyond it felt very empty of context. A limp, unmemorable book, even cringeworthy at times.

One either likes a book or not, but a negative review based on comments which have nothing to do with the book itself, or the quality of the writing, or the plot, is hardly relevant.
