Publisher's Summary

Do you believe in lucky charms?

While in Iraq, US Marine Logan Thibault finds a photo, half buried in the dirt, of a woman. He carries it in his pocket, and from then on his luck begins to change. Back home, Logan is haunted by thoughts of war. 

Over time, he becomes convinced that the woman in the photo holds the key to his destiny. So he finds the vulnerable and loving Beth, and a passionate romance begins. But Logan battles with the one secret he has kept from Beth: how he found her in the first place. And it is a secret that could utterly destroy everything they love....

Critic Reviews

“There are only two people who can get away with writing chick-lit: Jodi Picoult and Nicholas Sparks...Sparks has delivered another brilliantly addictive read.” (London Lite)

"A strictly curl-up-on-the-sofa-on-your-own affair...A guiltier than guilty pleasure - race through it with lots of tissues." (Heat)

"Sparks writes unashamedly romantic novels that make women weak at the knees...Once again, Sparks certainly flies." (Closer)

Captivating and heartwarming

What made the experience of listening to The Lucky One the most enjoyable?

The story is beautiful, slowly weaving you into the fabric of the world created by Sparks and the narrator is eloquent and captures each of the several voices so well that one can immediately tell one from the other

Who was your favorite character and why?

Logan is one of those men one hopes to meet in real life but the dog Zeus takes the cake!

What does John Bedford Lloyd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As I said earlier, the way he captured each voice of the tale brings a dimension to the story I probably would have missed myself in reading the book

If you could take any character from The Lucky One out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I can't really take the dog and Logan seems to predictable so Nana to glean her wisdom and enjoy her life stories and wry wit!

Sweet story

Nice Story, spoilt by the narraters silly voice for female characters, sounded like a man in drag. A shame. Would not recommend from that point of view.

review of 'The Lucky One'

This was the very 1st audiobook I downloaded. I felt very stuck for choice initially so thought I'd opt for one that would generally appeal as not a 'heavy' read. I was right, this book was enjoyable. The characters were well described & there was enough going on plot wise to keep me interested. Not the typical 'happy ending' either which can get tiresome.

Boring

Listened to the first twenty minutes of this and just couldnt continue listenting to the droll sounds of the narrator or the tedious story line.
