Book Club: One Day

If you have watched even an hour of tv this week (I've watched about 45 hours) you have probably seen a commercial for One Day. When I saw this trailer in May I immediately bought the book and downloaded One Republic's "Good Life." I'm happy to report that both are excellent!

One Day is one of the most romantic, most realistic love stories I have ever read. There is nothing easy or predictable in this story of two people who you know are meant to be but you fear will never end up together. It reminded me a lot of The Time Traveler's Wife. I thought about fate and soul mates and what happens to relationships over time.

I immediately thought One Day would make a great movie because the book's dialogue is beautiful and tragic and sometimes really funny! I can't wait to see Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess as Emma and Dexter. Until then I'll watch the trailer and say "university" and "disaster" and "teachers" in my fake British accent.
