First book I’ve read in years! At least , it’s the first book I’ve read like I used to read BC* – non stop, hardly able to put it down, great chunks at a time…until the last chapter, when the feeling of impending loss kicks in and I make each page last as long as possible.

I had forgotten how it felt to read, properly read a book, not just drag my eyes across the same paragraph over and over in bed just before practically passing out from the exhaustion joys of parenting!

Am feeling elated yet bereft but mostly elated!

It’s a great book. I loved it! And I am not alone, according to The Times Review it is “A wonderful, wonderful book’ and Nick Hornby sums it up with “Big, absorbing, smart.”

Read it! One Day by David Nicholls.
