Around the time that One Day came out in cinemas, I felt like everyone was talking about it, though, considering I go to an all girl’s high school, that’s not entirely surprising. Many of my friends had read the book and told me that it was absolutely incredible and I had to read it. Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough time to read it before watching the film so I can’t tell you how close to the novel the film is; however, the general consesus among my friends – and most women – is that the film does not do the book justice. The first time I watched One Day I thought it was absolutely brilliant. I was blown away by the intensely moving story and found myself leaving the cinema in floods of tears. I thought to myself, if the film doesn’t do the book justice then that must be one hell of a book. However, I think I may have been swept up in the moment because when I got home and really analysed the film, I realised that it wasn’t that great.
