.One Day.

New book club review.
Finished reading this novel last week, and I have to say it, I really really really loved it. 
You will too! I promise!
So I could not put this book down from the minute I started reading it. It was just instant love. 
Basically, the novel is about two main characters, Emma & Dexter, who share a special connection one night, July 15th to be exact, and somehow find a way to meet up, connect, or think of each other on that very same day every year for the next 20 years.
It will make you cry and then laugh out loud the very next minute.
I connected with the characters immediately, and loved reading the narrative from both sides, both Emma {the females} and Dexter {the males}. David Nicholls did an amazing job of this and I was never bored with either interaction.
The only criticism I can really give in a negative way, is how the novel ended. I didn't hate it by any means, but even after a week and a half, I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it. It certainly will completely throw you off guard, that's for sure. 
So here's another video. It cuts off at the end {camera was out of memorr}, but you still get the idea.
So without giving anything away, you will just have to read it, and let me know what you think of the ending. Love it or Hate it?
Ohh, and it's going to the theatres in August, starring Jim Sturgess and Anne Hathaway.....Can't wait!
