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.

Complete! That would be the best word to describe this book. There is not a moment in which you don't feel the need to punch either Em or Dex right in their nose. But still is very compelling the way how they make you feel as if they were alive. At some point of the book I felt as if I had been punched in the stomach as my breath wasn't enough. It's the type of book you don't put down until you finish it.
One Day is one of the best books of the decade.
Loved the honest and humorous portrayal of love and life between two people over a twenty year period that everyone can relate to. Very realistic about life and hopes and dreams not turning out as we often expect. Loved the book, the characters and couldn't put it down. Five stars. I'd give it ten if I could. Read this now! R Casadei. May 2011.
A must read
This book is a must read! I couldn't stop reading it. From the very beginning you want to know about Dexter and Emma. At the end you want it to continue, you want to know more. You wish for it too never end. I highly recommend this book!
