Product description

Review

It's rare to find a novel which ranges over the recent past with such authority, and even rarer to find one in which the two leading characters are drawn with such solidity, such painful fidelity, to real life that you really do put the book down with the hallucinatory feeling that they've become as well known to you as your closest friends. Hard to imagine anyone encountering characters as well drawn as this and not recognizing the extraordinary talent of the writer who has created them. (Jonathan Coe Guardian Books of the Year)

I finished it last night and I'm still quite wobbly and affected by it. It was BRILLIANT. . . the jealously nearly made me puke. I wish I'd written this book (Marian Keyes)

The ultimate zeitgeist love story for anyone who ever wanted someone they couldn't have (Adele Parks)

Big, absorbing, smart, fantastically readable . . . brilliant on the details of the last couple of decades of British cultural and political life (Nick Hornby)

The novel of the year - a brilliantly funny and moving will-they, won't-they romance tracing a relationship on the same day each day for two decades (Heat)

It is a cleverly and astutely constructed book - but that is worthy of a mere footnote compared with its emotional impact. I am not ashamed to say that upon finishing it I pressed it to my chest as a big fat tear splashed onto its upturned spine (The Times Book Club)

You'd be hard pressed to find a sharper, sweeter romantic comedy this year than the story of Dex and Em (Independent)

Nicholls' book is the sort of thing you can't put down, and I read it over a weekend, creeping upstairs to gulp down another chapter when I should have been downstairs preparing dinner of helping with homework (Dylan Jones)

I felt that I had been emotionally taken apart by the very best. This perfectly executed novel is a reminder that reading can be the finest entertainment there is (Guardian)

If you measure your love for a book by the number of times you buy it for people, then my favourite is ONE DAY by David Nicholls. I read it about a year ago and must have bought it for at least 20 people since (The Times Book Club)

Review

'It's rare to find a novel which ranges over the recent past with such authority, and even rarer to find one in which the two leading characters are drawn with such solidity, such painful fidelity, to real life that you really do put the book down with the hallucinatory feeling that they've become as well known to you as your closest friends. Hard to imagine anyone encountering characters as well drawn as this and not recognizing the extraordinary talent of the writer who has created them.' -- Jonathan Coe, Guardian Books of the Year 2009 'Incredibly moving' -- Marian Keyes, writing in the Irish Independent 'A totally brilliant book about the heartbreaking gap between the way we were and the way we are...the best weird love story since THE TIME TRAVELLER'S WIFE. Every reader will fall in love with it. And every writer will wish they had written it.' -- Tony Parsons 20090129 'Big, absorbing, smart, fantastically readable ... brilliant on the details of the last couple of decades of British cultural and political life ... the perfect beach read for people who are normally repelled by the very idea of beach reads' -- Nick Hornby 20090403 'The funniest, loveliest book I've read in ages. Most of all it is horribly, cringingly, absolutely 100% honest and true to life: I lived every page.' -- Jenny Colgan 20081202 'The ultimate zeitgeist love story for anyone who ever wanted someone they couldn't have' -- Adele Parks 20090219 'I really loved it ... it's absolutely wonderful ... just so moving and engaging' -- Kate Mosse 20090621 'A wonderful, wonderful book: wise, funny, perceptive, compassionate and often unbearably sad ... the best British social novel since Jonathan Coe's WHAT A CARVE UP! ... Nicholls's witty prose has a transparency that brings Nick Hornby to mind: it melts as you read it so that you don't notice all the hard work that it's doing' -- The Times 20090621 'You'd be hard pressed to find a sharper, sweeter romantic comedy this year than the story of Dex and Em' -- Independent 20090621 'We may have found the novel of the year - a brilliantly funny and moving will-they, won't-they romance tracing a relationship on the same day each day for two decades' -- Heat 20090621 'With its beautifully rounded, real characters and deeply poignant storytelling, this is one of the year's best novels.' -- Heat 20090621 'With a nod to WHEN HARRY MET SALLY, this funny, emotionally engaging third novel from David Nicholls traces the unlikely relationship between Emma Morley and Dexter Mayhew ... Told with toe-curlingly accurate insight and touching observation ... If you left college sometime in the Eighties with no clear idea of what was going to happen next, or who your lifelong friends might turn out to be, this one's a definite for your holiday suitcase. If you didn't, it still is ... The feelgood film must surely be just around the corner. I can't wait.' -- Daily Mail 20090621 'Nicholls has a gimlet eye for period detail ... A beguiling read' -- Observer 20090621 '[Nicholls] has both a very deft prose style and a great understanding of human emotion. His characterisation is utterly convincing ... ONE DAY is destined to be a modern classic.' -- Daily Mirror 20090621 'A moving and feel-good read. Nicholls is an expert at capturing that essence of young adulthood, first love, heartbreak, and the tangled, complicated course of romance ... Deserves to be the must-read hit of the summer.' -- News of the World 20090621 'I couldn't think of anyone who wouldn't love this book' -- Simon Mayo Books Panel, BBC Radio Five Live 20090621 'Nicholls captures superbly the ennui of post graduation ... The writing is almost faultless, there's a great feeling for the period and it's eminently readable.' -- Herald 20090621 'Nicholls has written a warm, witty, smart and sad novel, and maybe one of the best books of the year' -- Sunday Tribune 20090621 'David Nicholls' third novel captivates love in a way that's real and unassuming ... Relaying the essence of friendship and unrequited love with fall-off-your-seat humour, this is an unputdownable romance for the 21st century' -- SHE 20090621 'You're gripped from the opening pages ... Nicholls, author of STARTER FOR TEN, writes faultless, engaging dialogue and keeps up a cracking pace. You will find this hard to put down' -- Psychologies 20090621 'As a study of what we once were and what we can become, it's masterfully realised' -- Esquire 20090621 'Perfect for the beach or summer in the city' -- In Style 20090621 'An off-kilter romantic comedy with charm to spare' -- Harpers Bazaar 20090621 'A delicious love story' -- Sunday Herald 20090621 'funny and moving' -- Scotsman 20090621 'David STARTER FOR TEN Nicholls is back with this smart comedy, packed with the mistakes, mismatches and meandering conversations that make up real life' -- Marie Claire, Book of the Month 20090621 'A modern fairy tale, slickly put together. A gifted story-teller with lots of technical savvy.' -- Scottish Review of Books 20090621 'An edgy romantic tale' -- Woman & Home 20090603 'I loved this book ... moved me profoundly' -- Amanda Ross 20090527 'Snort-out-loud stuff ... it deserves to be a huge hit' -- thelondonpaper 20090609 'A wonderful evocation of a modern love affair' -- Glamour 20090609 'Lightly done, but saved from schmaltz by rueful wit and lashings of cringe-inducing nostalgia' -- Guardian Review 20090609 'Clever, funny and poignant' -- Daily Express 20090609 'A total treat ... by turns bittersweet, funny, touching and sad, but always Nicholls's wonderfully observant and wry touch shines through. A way-we-live-now parable about relationships, disappointments, friendship and expectations; a novel utterly comfortable in its own skin' -- Kate Mosse, writing in The Times 20090609 'Fabulous ... I couldn't put it down ... It's brilliant' -- Fay Ripley 20090609
