On a fateful St. Swithin's Day in 1988, new university grads Em and Dex have what is supposed to be a casual fling and instead, end up the best of friends. One Day revisits this unlikely pair on this same day over the next twenty years as they navigate the new loves and heartbreaks, the broken dreams and compromises, and the failures and successes that make up adult life. At turns funny, sad, poignant, and perceptive, this is an absorbing and intelligent love story disguised as chick lit.

Very nicely written, by turns very funny and unexpectedly touching. Neither light nor too weighty, the book covers both Em and Dex's personal journeys and the cultural journey that UK (or London at least) made from the go-go '80s to the slowdown '90s, with Dexter's fortunes following suit.

an easy and enjoyable read; clever format; like another reader, didn't find the characters well-developed but it worked for this book because it didn't seem like the author was trying for a deep, heavy message - seemed to me like he was striving to write a clever, engaging story... and in my mind he was successful!

Em and Dex, Dex and Em. Meet Dex in his early 20s, where he is well-to-do life, popular with the ladies...Em is the opposite. They share a night together and are forever linked in their twisted friendship. Don't want to spoil it, but not what I expected from the characters. Thoroughly enjoyed.

I had high expectations for this due to all the hype it's gotten, and at first I wasn't that impressed. It takes awhile to get into, but so worth it to keep reading. I'm actually so sad that it's over now and feel it's the type of book I could re-read.

What did I miss? Since so many people are raving, I must have missed something! Glad to have it behind me.

Waited and waited for this book to get better, but it never did. Did not enjoy it at all.

I read this because my husband had raved about it. As he's not one to rave, I was expecting great things. It took me a few chapters to start enjoying it, maybe my expectations were a bit high to start with. It's touted as being "hilarious" but I wouldn't go as far as to say that. Some great one liners though.
Overall it's quite a charming read in an interesting format.

Easy read and fairly enjoyable. I found it a bit hard to like the characters so I wasn't really invested in what happened to them, but I was entertained throughout and I was surprised by the ending.

I chose this book because it is written in a very unique way which I felt held a lot of promise. Each chapter reflects one day out of each year of the relationship and is essentially a snapshot of what was happening on that specific day. Unfortunately, one of the two characters was extremely unlikeable and the other was just plain frustrating which kept me from really caring about the outcome of the book. But on the positive side, the pop culture references were fun!
