One Day by David Nicholls
This was another grab from our Little Free Library. I’m a sucker for gimmicky novels involving time in some way… This one tells the story of a relationship by describing the events of one day in July every year, from their twenties through forties.
If I’m honest, I didn’t like the ending. But the ride was enjoyable. The convention worked pretty well, but I didn’t really feel like it was used in any particular way. It could have just been a novel that covers a long time period, without the arbitrary single day convention. What did choosing that particular day bring to the table? Not sure.
But it was well written, and I guess other people liked it, because I see it was made into a movie a year later.
