    Starter for Ten de David Nicholls (jll1976)
    jll1976: Although not even in the same league, this was Nicholls first novel. It's a good read. There are even hints of character that were more thoroughly developed in One Day too.

A brilliant novel that can stand next to Call Me By Your Name as a classic epic romance of our time. ( )
  silversurfer | Jun 9, 2024 |
David Nicholls' One Day gives us two characters who only the most cold-hearted reader couldn't care about. Bookish, idealistic (and totally bolshie) Emma Morley has graduated with a double first in English and Theatre Studies from university in Edinburgh. Dexter Mayhew, easy-going, handsome, charming and womanizing with a 2 in Anthropology, hooks up with her at their graduation party. They spend what's left of the night talking and kissing boozily in Emma's seedy, shared student flat. Despite certain misgivings on both sides, they hang out with each other all the next day. 15th July, 1988. St Swithin's Day.

The novel takes place on the same date each year, for the next twenty years. We follow Em and Dex as they negotiate the perils of adult life and a friendship fraught with all kinds of tension, including the inevitable will-they-won't-they-end-up-together. And in a way they are always together, thinking about each other and loving each other even though they're often directly at odds or leading very different lives.

Nicholls writes of their respective triumphs and disasters with wry humour, compassion and without mawkishness. He gives Em and Dex a cast of vivid supporting characters who help move the story along without getting bogged down in trivia.

If (like me) you're a bit of a sook, have a packet of tissues handy towards the end.

One Day is an enjoyable, satisfying read for Gen X-ers who love a bit of romance. ( )

I enjoyed reading this even though Dexter is pretty awful and I found myself equally rooting for him to get togher with Emma and also wishing that she'd find somebody better. The end was not what I was expecting for this particular type of book and it tarnished the whole thing for me a bit. Still, an easy read, and a decent book. ( )

It is a very beautiful written romance about the love of two friends ( )

It’s 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met. But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another. Over twenty years, snapshots of that relationship are revealed on the same day—July 15th—of each year. Dex and Em face squabbles and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. And as the true meaning of this one crucial day is revealed, they must come to grips with the nature of love and life itself.

My review:
I read this book because the movie is coming out on August 19, and being pop-culture-ignorant as I am, I thought I'd at least read the book so I'd have a clue. Well. I should have known better.

One Day gives a snapshot of Dex and Emma's lives, sometimes separately, sometimes together, every year on July 15 for 20 years. We watch Emma through the ups and downs of her life, and we watch Dex destroy his life with a boatload of bad choices. It is a good book, and I enjoyed reading it, for the most part. I mostly kept reading to find out if they finally got together. Of course, I'm not going to tell you what happened. I will tell you to grab a box of tissues. That's the only thing that messed up this book for me. You know I hate to cry when I'm reading. ( )

Må bra-läsning i högsta ligan
 
Hun vil forandre verden, han vil feie over flest mulig «En dag» anbefales på det varmeste. Dette er britisk vidd på sitt aller beste, som Nina Aspen imponerende nok har klart å presse inn i vårt mer karrige norske språk. Den «Notting Hill»-aktige kjærlighetskomedien er også en vakker og vemodig fortelling med en overraskende avslutning. Jeg tipper den må justeres litt for det sentimentale amerikanske filmpublikum når boka nå skal filmatiseres.

Boken är slut men svider än
I första kapitlet blickar en ung Emma Morley framåt. Resan dit, till den stora fyran och nollan, blir lång och komplicerad för henne och Dexter Mayhew.
Det är en av de bästa böckerna jag har läst.

afegit per annek49 | editaAftonbladet, Markus Larsson (Jun 27, 2010)
 
“Love and be loved,” [Emma] had told herself, “if you ever get the chance.” It’s something you may want to find out this summer at poolside. And if you do, you may want to take care where you lay this book down. You may not be the only one who wants in on the answers.
 
One of the most hilarious and emotionally riveting love stories you'll ever encounter.

'What are days for?
Days are where we live
They come, they wake us
Time and time over.
They are to be happy in:
Where can we live but days?

Ah, solving the question
Brings the priest and the doctor
In their long coats
Running over the fields.'

Philip Larkin, 'Days.'

A volte, quando ha la luna storta, si domanda se quello che è per lei un amore verso la parola scritta non sia solo un feticismo verso la cancelleria. (p. 135)
Ma nei momenti di buona si sente la protagonista di un romanzo di Muriel Spark: indipendente, sveglia, intellettuale, intimamente romantica. (p. 137)
"Chiamami tu o ti chiamo io, ma sentiamoci, eh? Intendo dire che non è una gara. Se mi telefoni per prima, non è che perdi la faccia". (Dex, p. 487)
Live each day as if it’s your last’, that was the conventional advice, but really, who had the energy for that? What if it rained? It just wasn’t practical. Better by far to simply try and be good and courageous and bold and to make a difference. Not change the world exactly, but the bit around you. Go out there with your passion and your electric typewriter and work hard at… something. Change lives through art maybe. Cherish your friends, stay true to your principles, live passionately and fully and well. Experience new things. Love and be loved, if you ever get the chance.
