    "Great read"
    What did you love best about The Lucky One?

    I loved Logan. What a great hero. This was a great romance, with real characters and it kept me wanting more all the way through


    Any additional comments?

    The Narrator did well. His female voices took a little getting use to, but overall he did really well.

    "For real"

    I never get tired of this author's books. Even though they are always about finding and or loosing love he indivualizes every story. Also the men and women in his storys seem to be real people. You don't have to be envious after listening to his storys. Your husband or wife could actualy live up to the stamdards the author sets in his characters.

    "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.

    "HORRIBLE NARRATOR"

    Why does N/S always get the narrator who immitates female voices? I could not make it through for first page of this one. I love N/S books - NOT his audio books thouhg

    "Disappointed"
    What disappointed you about The Lucky One?

    I thought the story was very weak, simple and predictable. I wasn't engaged with the characters at any point of the book, I felt as if the story was very shallow and that Nicholas Sparks and any five year old could come up with the same story. I believe this is a best seller only because of Nicholas Sparks other hits.


    Has The Lucky One turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Would you be willing to try another one of John Bedford Lloyd’s performances?

    Maybe, but this performance was terrible, I thought the female voices wouldn't matter but it definitely did.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Lucky One?

    None, I would have added more


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the movie is better
