One Day

I wanted to read a book that was an easy and fast read, one that if if it were a movie would be described as “popcorn movie”. One Day was the lucky book. It chronicles the story of Dexter and Emma who spends a night together of their graduation and each anniversary year of the next 20 years. The book starts light but goes into dark territory on the middle part heading towards its quite cinematic conclusion.

The book is not really a love story between the 2 main protagonists but sort of snapshots of real life. That through the years we have our ups and downs. Na ang buhay ay pana-panahon lang. That what we are now is a disappointment if the us from years ago were to give the verdict. That sometimes life sucks, that sometimes curve balls are thrown at us that we don’t anticipate, and that when we just hang on – really hang on until our hands hurt from hanging on too long – the stars would realign for us again.
