Publisher's Summary

In his 14th book, best-selling author Nicholas Sparks tells the unforgettable story of a man whose brushes with death lead him to the love of his life.

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.

Wonderful story filled with love & surprise

Started a little slow the first chapter or two, but once it got going, I could turn it off! Kept me hanging on til the end...the ending was a total surprise!

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

It had a little of everything, drama, love, sorrow. It keeps you going. Captures your inner sense of caring.

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.

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!

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
