Review -- One Day by David Nicholls

One Day
by David Nicholls
Knopf Doubleday, 2010
437 pages
*I won a copy of this book from the publisher.

Summary: Dexter and Emma are connected by the one day they spent together after graduating from college. As they go their separate ways and become different people, they continue to stay connected through letters and eventually become best friends.

Review: Through 'snapshots' of one day (July 15) over the course of twenty years, author David Nicholls describes the relationship between two people as they journey to find themselves and their way through life. The novel is entertaining, the characters are interesting and real, and the novel is (at times) heartbreaking. Emma and Dexter are wonderful characters, who are perfect for one another, but the reader is allowed the time to see them grow and mature both in and out of their relationship. A wonderful read. Rating: **** out of 5
