Format: Paperback
THE LUCKY ONE is another great read from master storyteller Nicholas Sparks. Here we are given a story with a slightly darker edge and far more suspense then his usual soppy romance. Dog lovers and fans of THE GUARDIAN in particular will appreciate this engaging romantic suspense.

One of the great (or not so great) things about Nicholas Sparks is that he doesn't always give you a happy ending and it was with this in mind that about half way through (just as the flood waters started to rise, secrets began boiling to the surface and I was completely invested in the characters and their budding love story) I began to get nervous for the ending. I mean you just knew something bad was going to happen, the clues were all there but the real question that kept me turning pages at a frantic pace was... to who?

Each chapter here has been written from a different characters POV incorporating Elizabeth; a divorced mother with a young son who along with her no-nonsense Nana run a dog kennel in their small North Carolina town, Clayton her ex-husband and the town sheriff (bully) comes from a influential family yet harbours some nasty little secrets and Thibault as our hero. An Iraq war veteran, Logan Thibault alongside his dog Zeus has walked (yes walked) from Colorado in an obsessive search for the unknown woman in a photograph he found during his three harrowing tours of duty in Iraq. He believes the picture to be his good luck charm and directly responsible for keeping him alive. In the end all the characters merge for a predictable yet ultimately nail-biting ending.

The last chapter is very, very sneaky with Sparks keeping you on pins for pages before finally giving up the ending of which I had no clue.

The Lucky One
By Nicholas Sparks

Light weight-stuff here. Author Nicholas Sparks is one of the major players in the romance genre and for good reason--he can churn this stuff out and fast. Here's another perfect summer read. Not a single surprise and I would imagine that's what people like about his writing.

The story is built around three characters and every other chapter is about each of them. Deputy Keith Clayton opens the tale and right from the get-go you smell a numero uno creep. As he hangs in the bushes snapping pictures of naked co-eds skinny dipping in the river, someone else is watching. Enter player two; Logan Thibault and his well-trained German shepherd, Zeus.

Thibault, a scruffy, long-haired ex-marine, is on a strange mission and he's doing it all on foot. He's hiked from Colorado with a simple pack on his back and a lucky charm in his pocket; a mysterious picture he found while stationed in Kuwait. And (you're not going to believe this) it's of our third character in this triangle of love; Beth Clayton, ex-wife of Keith and mother to their only child, Ben.

"He'd known she was attractive, but the faded photo didn't capture the warmth of her smile or the serious way she studied him, as if searching for hidden flaws."

Early on, you figure he'll find his `Lucky One' but as with all good romance stories, things are never as easy as one-two-three. Conflicts are tossed into the tale faster than you can say Nicholas Sparks loves himself and then, (sorry, he brings out the snark in me) surprise, surprise, an enormous, record-breaking storm blasts into the little town of Hampton, North Carolina and stirs up all sorts of trouble for our cozy trio.

Ok, let me be honest, I've never really been a Fiction Fan. I'm the book lover who can always be found in the Nonfiction section. I hadn't gotten around to picking up more books when I took ill. A male friend suggested a book by Nicholas Sparks. "He wrote the Notebook" I was told. Desperate for something to read while recuperating I was lucky enough to find this book. I couldn't (nor wanted) to put this book down. This book had more twist, turns
and loopdy loops, than an Amusement park rides. This may be sexist, but, boy does this man KNOW how to write. I've already purchased more of his books. Coming from a ONLY Nonfiction reader, I'm now a HUGE Fan!!

I did't like this book at all. It's a formula novel, a love story, where she is perfect and beautiful, and he is perfect and beautiful, and much of the writing I did not find that interesting or original in style. But this book was chosen for our book club and I read it. And I have to say we did have a pretty interesting discussion at club meeting. I doubt I'll ever read another Nicholas Sparks book though. The price was excellent so I didn't feel badly about spending a lot of money. I received a brand new book, paper back and it arrived in a little over week. So was pleased with the service and the product.

I got this book becasue I wanted to read it before the movie came out. I read the whole thing in two days and i really enjoyed it. It was well written and i didn't want to put it down. I really liked the story line and the romance between the two main characters was touching.
As for the movie...they could have done a better job...Misssed alot of parts and poorly done. A big disappointment.
