As we noted earlier, British import, One Day by David Nicholls, just published in original trade paperback here last week, has been picking up strong reviews and perhaps the ultimate accolade; Anne Hathaway has signed to star in the movie version.

Now it picks up one more accolade; the new issue of People (which we get early from our secret source) gives it four of a possible four stars, also designating it a People Pick and calling it an “instant classic…and one of the most hilarious and emotionally riveting love stories you’ll ever encounter.”

We’re thinking this may be a British-to-US phenomenon along the lines of Bridget Jones; someone is probably  kicking themselves for not pubishing One Day in hardcover here.

On the other hand, the lower trade pbk. price may give the book additional legs.

    You know, I have to admit, I read an ARC of this, and I really really wanted to like it (I love Brit Fic) but I found it totally boring and the characters were extremely dull. I’m surprised at all the attention it’s getting! (just goes to show, what do I know…) : )
