'I can imagine you at forty,' she said, a hint of malice in her voice. 'I can picture it right now.' He smiled without opening his eyes. 'Go on then.'

Twenty years, two people, one day.

"A wonderful, wonderful book: wise, funny, perceptive, compassionate and often unbearably sad. The best British social novel since Jonathan Coe's What a Carve Up!" (The Times)
Gripping and heartbreaking, hilarious and tragic, this book shows the less sickly sweet side to love, following the two protagonists through their lives. By the time you have finished it, you will know and love both characters more deeply than your own relations and it will continue to haunt you long after it ends. Highly recommend.
It engaged - there was no difficulty encountered in the concepts presented - it was an easy read. Characters were sufficiently entertaining and the storyline was not far-fetched or contrived - it was real life.
Don't become complacent - love fully.
