One Day is destined to be a modern classic. Daily Mirror
Full Review


A totally brilliant book about the heartbreaking gap between the way we were and the way we are... the best weird love story since The Time Traveller's Wife. Tony Parsons
Full Review


As a study of what we once were and what we can become, it's masterfully realised. Esquire

Deja Vu All Over Again
One Day is a masterful piece of storytelling, eminently readable and absorbing. This is because the intelligence and grace of Nicholls's writing infuses the novel with a degree of wit and pathos that makes it worth reading. Steven Hayward
The Globe and Mail
Full Review


Last summer, at a beach house in the Hamptons, a weekend guest arrived carrying a novel she’d picked up abroad and was loath to put down. Called One Day, it was written by David Nicholls. Liesl Schillinger
The New York Times Sunday Book Review


Nicholls captures superbly the ennui of post graduation... The writing is almost faultless, there's a great feeling for the period and it's eminently readable. Herald


With a nod to When Harry Met Sally, this funny, emotionally engaging third novel from David Nicholls traces the unlikely relationship between Emma Morley and Dexter Mayhew. The Daily Mail
Full Review


Nicholls has a gimlet eye for period detail... A beguiling read. Observer


A wonderful, wonderful book: wise, funny, perceptive, compassionate and often unbearably sad. The Times
Full Review


Few books have captured our hearts and imaginations like One Day. Katie Mulloy
Stylist


Number one bestseller of 2011. The Guardian
