Another great book by Nicholas Sparks
I enjoyed the book...I couldn't stop listening. With that being said I liked, thought it was good but not his best. Not an epic book like The Notebook and A Walk to Remember which I know are hard to top. In addition, I cannot believe that the more expensive version of this book is number 90 something. Sparks is one of the best writers of today along side J.K.R. and deserves to be heard by mass amounts of people. Each of his books have made me cry and feel as if I am in the story, that takes great writing.
Seriously, You won’t be disappointed
The main character in The Lucky One is ex-Marine, Logan Thibault. Logan has served three tours of duty in Iraq as a Marine and believes his survival is due to a lucky picture he found of an unknown woman.
On his first tour deployed in Iraq, he found a photo that help brought him through that tour and two more. He is obsessed with the picture of the girl standing by the ferris wheel and sets out to find her.
Logan Thibault is an easy-going and charming man who walks cross-country accompanied by Zeus (his dog) to find the mystery woman in the picture. Once he arrives in North Carolina, he takes a job at a dog training facility where he meets Nana, the elderly owner of the facility, Elizabeth (‘Beth’), her granddaughter and her young son, Ben. Elizabeth, as he discovers is the woman in his lucky picture.
After reading this book, you can’t help but wonder, who is the lucky one in the story? In my opinion, there are several lucky ones in this story. It’s amazing how a story simply based on a photograph can unfold into such a beautiful work of fiction. If you are a Nicholas Sparks fan, you seriously won’t be disappointed.
Of course it's amazing!!! it's Nicholas Sparks!!! a MUST HAVE!!!
