Book Club!!

You can write about any book you want.

This week I'm sharing...

Here's the synopsis:
The episodic story takes place during a single day each year for two decades in the lives of Dex and Em. Dexter, the louche public school boy, and Emma, the brainy Yorkshire lass, meet the day they graduate from university in 1988 and run circles around one another for the next 20 years. Dex becomes a TV presenter whose life of sex, booze, and drugs spins out of control, while Em dully slogs her way through awful jobs before becoming the author of young adult books. They each take other lovers and spouses, but they cannot really live without each other.

I actually found this book through a Book Club Friday link up.  Tara at Fabulous But Evil reviewed a couple weeks ago and I decided I had to read it.  I'm laughing as I type this review, because I both loved and hated this book at the same time.  It's a wonderful story about a love that cannot be ignored.  It's told in such a realistic way that I both wanted to stop reading- and couldn't stop!

If you read this book, be ready to laugh, cry, & possibly lose some sleep.

I didn't know there was a book-- only the upcoming movie. And I definitely thought the same thing that I would love and hate it. Haha. I'll definitely be reading the book before seeing the movie. I hope I dont get so frustrated that I want to throw it out the window though. Lol!! :)

I totally agree with you. There were so many parts that made me want to throw the book across the room, but still I could not put it down.
