One Day (film Tie-in) (Paperback) Price: Rs.262


One Day is the bittersweet story of a couple who meet each other, proceed to fall in love, hide their true feelings from each other, and ultimately tie the knot and lead a happy life till fate parts them.


The novel starts with the rendezvous of two young graduates, Emma and Dexter, on the day of their graduation. She is 22, and he is 23. They are both attracted to each other, but they don’t tell each other how they feel. In a bid to see how their lives will pan out individually, they decide to meet on the same day, July 15, every year, and promise to keep in touch. They part after teasing each other as to what they think the future holds for them.


Emma is earnest and idealistic, while Dexter is more practical and dreams of a high flying life for himself.


The novel then begins to trace the lives of these two characters over a period of twenty years. The author goes back to the two main characters on the same day each year - July 15. Every time they get in touch, the two tend to be in a new phase in their lives.


Dexter becomes a successful TV presenter, while Emma drifts from one job to another, without any aim. She eventually becomes a waitress at a Mexican restaurant.


Their paths cross several times, and they each go through many relationships. Although they always try to get together, random and unforeseen instances stop them from pursuing a relationship.


Dexter soon develops a drinking problem and his life starts spiralling downwards. Emma, meanwhile, finds a teaching job and settles down. Dexter falls in love with another woman, marries her, and they have a daughter. His relationship does not last, though. Emma soon starts writing novels for young adults and becomes quite successful.


The story traces what happens next with Emma and Dexter, and paints a picture of the dynamics of their relationship through the years. Their love for each other and how it all plays out forms the crux of the story.

If you want to smile, laugh, cry, cringe, sigh or just plain sit on a rollercoaster of emotions, then read this book.
Its one of those stories that you dont just read, but experience and feel like you are a part of it.
And such stories are rare so don't miss this one!

Great Read

About the product, Good quality pages. The cover's pretty attractive. Hassle free delivery of the package within time.
One day by David Nicholls follows the lives of two youngsters, who are visibly drawn to each other,through twenty years, each year on the same day. How their status in the society, their achievements, their failures, their other relationships affect the relationship among the two. Beautifully expressed. It took me a lot of time to get through this. Not because its a FAT book, But because it is intense. At times. It seems like its got a very romantic side to it, But when you'd read it you'll realize thats not true at all. There are instances in the book where you are forced to introspect. All book lovers should read this. Atleast once. :)

a real nice read

I just randomly chose this book from flipkart and it turned out to be a real nice read. Hadn't read other works of David Nicholls before but would like to try out his other works to now.
Now about the book, Its not exactly a coming of age book or a typical romance book where boy meets girl and they just fall in love at the spot and u know live happily ever after. It has a more deeper development of the characters and there life over the span of years even though the author has just chosen to describe one day of each year for this. Somehow it all works and the result is a pretty good read for leisure. Wont write any spoilers and would recommend the book to others to read as well.......

Loved each and everything about the book.

VERY WELL written. The author's in complete control of each and every sentence. The descriptions and metaphors and the overall use of the English language is fantastic. Very real, very lovable characters. There's a certain pace to the plot that is not fast and definitely not slow. The balance of pace allows one to savor each and every occurance in the novel to the fullest.

A complete novel. Read it for the wonderful storytelling. The terrific narration.
