One Day by David Nicholls is a brilliant book. It tells the story of two people who meet on their last day at University and it follows their lives on the same day each year for the next twenty years. It is funny, moving and very perceptive. I found there was so much that I identified with throughout the book.
Deaf Sentence by David Lodge is another hilariously funny yet very moving and perceptive story. I find he is not very sympathetic towards his female characters, none of whom seem very nice but that didn't detract from my enjoyment.
And I have just finished Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger, which although I found compulsive reading I also found rather disturbing. That said I still enjoyed the book and find her to be an excellent storyteller... although I think I preferred The Time Traveller's Wife.
I've just started the third and final book in the millenneum trilogy... The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest... already finding that difficult to put down! What are you reading right now? Any good recommendations?
