    I think I remember Fire Girl talking about this book on another thread and it does sound really good.
    So much so that I've got it on my Amazon list.
     
  4. I have and I loved it - In fact I read the entire book in one sitting!

    £3.77 on Amazon now - bargain!
     
  6. A must read! I loved it- I recognised so much of the background . I didn't want to finish so slowed right down in the last quarter!

  8. Thanks very much for the feedback!
     
  9. Loved this book. Loved the character development, and the idea of tracking them through the same day each year.
    A really good read.

    Just finished reading this and like one of the other posters I did it in one go. I just could NOT put it down.
    It's poignant, funny and evocative. I loved it so much.
    And I have a very soggy hankie now.
     
  13. Didn't know anything about this when I bought it but was surprised - very easy to read and enjoyable.
    I didn't much like the beginning but it got better. Enjoy

    I quite liked it, but I've read better books.

    I got this the other week on the recommendation from one of my students who works in Waterstones. It's on my shelf, so may make that my next read and will get the tissues ready!

    Read it on holiday and loved it. But then I grew up in the 80's!
     
  17. As was mentioned earlier in the thread - I really loved this book, I've bought at least 5 copies as gifts. To echo another poster - FAB/U/LOUS! Someone was reading it on the tube yesterday and I was smiling to myself on the journey - he was only about a chapter in and I'll bet he did nothing else for the rest of the day....
    Hope that it is made into a film. Nicholls also penned 'Starter for Ten' another unique read.
    Must also mention: Mr Rosenblum's List by Natasha Solomons. Loved this one too.

    Well I grew up in the 80s too so it should be right up my street!
     
  19. Have just finished reading this book. Found it really disappointing. Same time line as myself, but thought it could have been so much better. Kept losing interest in the characters, and found it a bit uneventful. Wonder if I listened to the hype too much?
     

  20. Started it last night. I now have that pleasant feeling of anticipation you have when you know that bedtimes fro the next week or so will have an added dimension.
    I do recognise myself in Emma (so far, anyway)
