When beginning to read 'One Day' by David Nicholls, I was ready to hate it. However, I am really enjoying this book. It's very funny and not at all the cheesy 'chick lit' I was anticipating. Here's a 'snippet':
Page 156: 'Emma turns, pads back to bed and lies there listening grumpily to the farming forecast and, in the background, the flush of a toilet, then another flush. Eventually he appears in the doorway, red-faced and martyred. He is wearing no underwear and a black t-shirt that stops a little above his hips. There isn't a man in the world that can carry off this look, but even so Emma makes a conscious effort to keep her eyes focussed on his face, as he slowly blows air out through his mouth.'
