“There are only two people who can get away with writing chick-lit: Jodi Picoult and Nicholas Sparks . . . Sparks has delivered another brilliantly addictive read” (London Lite)
"A strictly curl-up-on-the-sofa-on-your-own affair . . . A guiltier than guilty pleasure - race through it with lots of tissues" (Heat)
"Sparks writes unashamedly romantic novels that make women weak at the knees . . . Once again, Sparks certainly flies." (Closer)
I have a busy career, travel a lot and don't have much time to read, so I listen to Audio books. I love reading!
In true Nicholas Sparks brilliant writing. A good storyline, ticks all the boxes. Romance, adventure, outdoors and free spirited. I wasn't dissapointed.
The story is beautiful, slowly weaving you into the fabric of the world created by Sparks and the narrator is eloquent and captures each of the several voices so well that one can immediately tell one from the other
Logan is one of those men one hopes to meet in real life but the dog Zeus takes the cake!
As I said earlier, the way he captured each voice of the tale brings a dimension to the story I probably would have missed myself in reading the book
I can't really take the dog and Logan seems to predictable so Nana to glean her wisdom and enjoy her life stories and wry wit!
Nice Story, spoilt by the narraters silly voice for female characters, sounded like a man in drag. A shame. Would not recommend from that point of view.
"review of 'The Lucky One'"
This was the very 1st audiobook I downloaded. I felt very stuck for choice initially so thought I'd opt for one that would generally appeal as not a 'heavy' read. I was right, this book was enjoyable. The characters were well described & there was enough going on plot wise to keep me interested. Not the typical 'happy ending' either which can get tiresome.
Listened to the first twenty minutes of this and just couldnt continue listenting to the droll sounds of the narrator or the tedious story line.
"The Lucky One"
it is a awesome book ,I loved listening to it, And i cant put it down.. also the narrated was very good!!!!
