It took me two months to read this book. I really wanted to like it. Then nothing happened. The premise of the book is this: Emma and Dexter hook up on the night of their college graduation, July 15, 1988. We then take a peek into their lives on July 15th of each following year, all the way through 2006. Their lives are mundane. I kept waiting for something to happen, and even when it did I was only happy because it meant the book was almost over.
I would give this book 1.5 stars. It wasn't the worst thing I have ever read, but I just couldn't find myself investing in the characters. Of course, immediately following the end of this book, I had to see the movie. It was definitely better than the book, for what that is worth. If you are still interested, I would definitely go the movie route.
