The Book : One Day : David Nicholls : Review

One Day by David Nicholls : Book Review

Here is a book that has men openly crying in public, a book of romance and love. Who says that men don't have a romantic side to them. The big open secret is that men are really big softies at heart.

Two people meet at university and then the book describes one day of the year at the same time throughout the progress of their lives. It has a comic feel to it, but there is an underlying theme of the realities of life. How people start off all hopeful and full of dreams but over time we find the initial simplicity overrun with disillusionment's and frustrations. So its not a wishy washy romance but a book rooted in real life.


Some ordinary people reviews from Amazon.co.uk
"I've never been moved to write a review of any book before but this was simply wonderful. David Nicholls has managed to conjure characters so full of depth that in finishing the book I felt almost bereft at their parting"

"There`s no sloppy romanticism here either, no sex scenes described in elaborate euphemisms. This book is about realistic characters feeling the sort of emotions we have all felt. All human life is here in this novel and it`s utterly compelling"

Precison walking - marching - from Japan


This video shows precision walking, marching at it's best. The amount of time, energy, practice, dedication, self and group discipline, most of which us ordinary folk lack, is phenomenal.
