Ten Things About ‘One Day’ by David Nicholls

August 9, 2011 at 1:28 pm Leave a comment


One Day by David Nicholls…

1.) …surprised me
2.) …was much heavier (in theme and tone) than I expected
3.) …rang true anyway
4.) …was, despite the fact that the film version has not yet been released, already taken over by the film’s casting in my head. First time for everything!
5.) …raised questions about literary validity of a happy vs. unhappy endings
6.) …turned into another ‘Odyssey Years’ read (see also: This Side of Paradise)
7.) …inspired me to read more David Nicholls and get curious about his next book
8.) …made me wait for ages and ages to get it from the library (it’s a hot ticket at Senate House Library!)
9.) …had me seriously pondering a swim in the ladies bathing pond at Hampstead Heath
10.) …made me cry

As a result of combined life, the universe, and everything stuff for both me and Kate, LT will be going on a sort of hiatus until the autumn. The Classics Challenge will continue unabated, but expect a lot of ’10 Things’ reviews rather than proper write-ups, probably a lot less musings, and possibly a lot more about female travel narratives of the 19th century than you ever wanted to know.
