The last book I read for the summer was One Day, by David Nicholls. I had seen previews for the movie and I have a strict "book first, movie second" rule. Although I don't want to give anything away, the book was not exactly what I expected. One Day is your classic love story (or out of love story) that delves into issues of friendship and loyalty as well.
I really enjoyed the way that the book was set up - each chapter took place on July 15th of a different year. Due to this unique technique, this book is a wonderful exercise in INFERENCE (using your background knowledge PLUS clues from the previous chapters to INFER what happened during the year between the chapters).
I am very excited to see the movie (although I heard it wasn't that good). Movies RARELY live up to the book!!!
There are so many books to read, I don't know what to read next.
