Publisher's Summary

How far would you go to find The One?

A simple DNA test is all it takes. Just a quick mouth swab, and soon, you'll be matched with your perfect partner - the one you're genetically made for.

That's the promise made by Match Your DNA. A decade ago, the company announced that they had found the gene that pairs each of us with our soul mate. Since then, millions of people around the world have been matched. But the discovery has its downsides: Test results have led to the breakup of countless relationships and upended the traditional ideas of dating, romance, and love.

Now, five very different people have received the notification that they've been "Matched". They're each about to meet their one true love. But "happily ever after" isn't guaranteed for everyone. Because even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking than others....

A word-of-mouth hit in the United Kingdom, The One is a fascinating novel that shows how even the simplest discoveries can have complicated consequences.

Scattered, unbelievable story line. No character development. Disappointing. I loved his last book, read that!

Meh, Cliché Characters & a Bit of a Soap Opera

NO SPOILERS! This book has a great premise and I wanted to love it like other John Marrs stories. I did not enjoy the layout of the story, it took too much concentration to keep up with all of the plot lines- I believe there were four separate plots. I enjoyed some stories more than others, which almost tempted me to skip chapters and just listen to the characters I liked.

The story started off with a smart storyline, but the characters became more and more cliché. It seemed like he created conflict just for the sake of creating it.

I recommend this if you like soap operas and medical mysteries. As for me, just not enough thrills.

Match DNA.com

Really 3.5 stars but will rate up to 4.
Matchmaking via DNA match. Interesting concept. Does it work? Listen to hear the stories of the results.
Kept my interest. Romance, deceit, mystery. A little bit of everything.

couldn't put it down...

As a single person, I thought finding your perfect match through DNA was a dream come true. But, be careful what you wish for...

Very entertaining with a perfect ending

The narrator was very good and the plot was excellent I almost wish there WAS a service like this available, reminds me of old stories about how our other half is out there and that even if I takes several lifetimes the 2 halves of our one soul would reunite. Ok enough with that. Let me say the beginning ties in SO perfectly with the ending I can’t help but rage with jealousy; the hardest lines for any author are the first and the last. This author began with a perfect hook and ended it without trying so hard...everything wasn’t perfect but that’s what made it so darn good. No one wants “and they lived happily ever after” no more than they want a “it was all a dream” or “the screen going dark in the middle of a sentence” . Those are the methods used by hacks and Marrs is obviously no hack!
The pace of this book keeps one entertained and fully engaged. Also while there is more than one narrative (more than one main character facing different obstacles and neither intersects) the author fleshed out each character and story line which in turn made it very easy to follow without any confusion.
I highly recommend this book unless of course you hate good books and enjoy being bored, but if you’re an actual “lover of books” then don’t deny yourself the chance to listen to something that you will definitely find pleasurable. ;)

Read this now!

I wish more people would talk about this book, it is one of my favorites.
At first they introduce a lot of characters, and each has their own story. I had to write down the names to keep track of them, BUT PLEAS DONT LET THIS KEEP YOU FROM LISTENING TO THIS BOOK!!!
After a while you familiarize yourself with the characters, and no longer need help remembering the characters.

Difficult to rate, but worth a credit

This book was difficult to get into, many quick changes, chapter to chapter. Eventually, I knew who the characters were. Best to go with the flow. I may have quit, but the performance element was truly enjoyable. Towards the middle the story picked up and had a delightful final conclusion. Best one ending sentience ever, for me.
