    "Great Story"
    Where does The Lucky One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Lucky one was another great Nicholas Sparks story. It was full of suspense, romance, and unexpected twist.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the suspense and character development in the story. I also liked how the ending tied up the various story lines.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by John Bedford Lloyd?

    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.

    Story
    "Milk Toast"

    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.

    "Made me want to see the movie"

    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.

    All of them but the I wanted to kick the ex-husband


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes

    "Predictable"

    The story plot was a bit predictable. I could see this one as being better as a movie than a book.
