    "reader is horrible!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I'm not sure I can finish this! The story is ok but the reader is horrible. Listening to him try to change his voice into a woman's voice with a southern accent, or a little boy's voice .... horrible. My husband and I were laughing out loud. Totally distracting to the story!

    "what a lucky listen!"

    i'm not usually a nicholas sparks' kind of gal, simply for the fact that his books are always so predictable and seemingly not worth one of my two credits a month. so rarely do i pick his books. however, after reading some of the reviews i decided to give it a try and i was so glad i did.

    this book is precious, has endearing moments between the two characters and while i had a tough time with how amazingly fast he found the woman in the picture, it was still an excellent adventure. the ending was a surprise too, something i wasn't expecting.

    after reading it i ended up seeing the movie and it too was just as sweet as the book. i guess i'm a sucker for love.

    "The Lucky One (Unabridged)"

    Just like other typical Nicholas Sparks books - we loved listening to it. We liked the story and we enjoyed the narration.

    "Great Story by Nicholas Sparks!"
    What did you love best about The Lucky One?

    I fell in love with Logan...what a guy! Like all thee story Sparks books I read, listened to, or watched movies of, this is a love story. While the romance was fairly predictable, I enjoyed getting to watch Beth and Logan fall in love. I think most girls want a Logan to find them...a guy who listens and understands without being pushy or controlling.
    Also like all of my Sparks experiences, this one has a sad twist ending. I have always complained that Mr. Sparks kills off a main character in every book. Well, he continues his streak, but as always, I was still shocked at exactly how the played out.
    Good book, good narration. Worth your time and money.

    Story
    "One More Great Book."

    Story, very good.
    The storyteller was good but the voice of Beth was not real good. Instead of sounding like a young woman with something going on she sounds like my late aunt telling me how to make banana bread. Just sayin.
