** spoiler alert ** Spoiler alert!

Not every book will have a happy ending and I don't expect that, but a hopeful ending is always nice. One Day has's certainly not happy. The ending is quite tragic, but despite that, it's a wonderful book.

The story follows Dexter and Emma through out their friendship, but we only get to see them on one day each year - July 15th. We discover what happens in between on occasion, but I was never left disappointed with the end of a day.

Definitely a good read (and I'm certain it will make an excellent film). I knew the casting going in, but I think even without that knowledge I would have imagined Anne Hathaway as Emma. However, the Dexter in my head was always Jake Gyllenhaal. I'm certain that's because of that naked movie they were in together (I haven't seen it...something about love in the title.) The person actually playing Dexter is Jim Sturgess, but I've never really seen him in anything and I didn't seek out a photo (until this very moment). I can see him as Dexter now, but he's no Jake Gyllenhaal...
