Is there really such thing as a lucky charm? The hero of Nicholas Sparks's new novel believes he's found one in the form of a photograph of a smiling woman he's never met, but who he comes to believe holds the key to his destiny. The chain of events that leads to him possessing the photograph and finding the woman pictured in it is the stuff of love stories only a master such as Sparks can write.

The Lucky one was another great Nicholas Sparks story. It was full of suspense, romance, and unexpected twist.
I liked the suspense and character development in the story. I also liked how the ending tied up the various story lines.
Not if I have another choice. Although John Bedford Lloyd tried to give each character personality, I did not feel the narrator accurately portrayed the characters. At times he sounded flat and was a bit annoying to listen to. If I had time to sit down and read the book, I would have turned off the audible book and purchased the actual book.
Have not read a Sparks novel in a long time and have forgotten how good he is. His books are beautifully written and give us a sweet familiar love story that is pretty much based on a formula. This is not as good as his earlier novels.
There is no suspense because the reader can pretty much tell what is coming. It is great bedtime read before falling asleep. You can easily put it down for a while. Basically, it is milk toast.
Woman, 33 years old, Attornay at Law, DK. In order for a book to be truly great, it must inspire, intreague and a keep me up till dawn.
I liked it a lot, but it is a very slow narrator and sometimes I got just a little bored. Thats why it made me want to see the movie, as they tend to cut out a lot in order to only keep the esentials. Overall the storyline is very nice though and I gave it four stars for the romanceplot.
I didn't read the print edition. I use audio all the time so I can do two things at once. If I didn't, I would never have time to read
All of them but the I wanted to kick the ex-husband
I love Nicholas Sparks. It was a wonderful story as usual. I was surprised in ending. Pleasantly surprised.
Fun, easy listening . I listen while I clean and cook, sometimes I miss a few minutes with kids, but would not be lost. I enjoyed very much.
Seemed real. Kept you interested & involved. No boring parts.
Logan and his German Shepherd (Zeus)
The last two chapters. I don't want to give anything away but you'll definitely be moved.
The story plot was a bit predictable. I could see this one as being better as a movie than a book.
The story line
