BOOK REVIEW: THE LUCKY ONE
BY NICHOLAS SPARKS

We hope you enjoy this book review by Nancy Eaton.



Logan Thibault is on a search for someone he does not know. Why does he feel he must find this woman?

Logan Thibault had a plan for his life but after the World Trade Center tragedy he decided to join the military. He served three deployments to Iraq. In order to escape the tension from being in Iraq so many times, Logan would often go for a long run. Towards the end of one of these runs, he noticed something in the dirt. He stopped to and picked up a photograph. Logan took the photo with him. When he returned to camp, he tacked the photo to a message board. Surely, someone would want the photo back. After ten days, it remained on the board. He took the photo and put it in his pocket. His friend, Victor, talked him into joining them for poker. Thibault became very lucky that night and Victor told him it was because the photo had brought him luck.

Once Thibault completed his tour of duty, he was determined to find the woman in the photograph. He just could not get the photo out of his mind. Along with his dog, he walked from Colorado to North Carolina. He did not have much to go on except for a few clues in the background of the photo. Once in North Carolina, he lands a job at a dog training facility. The owner is Nana and she has a granddaughter Elizabeth. Elizabeth is the woman in the photograph. She is divorced and has a young son.

What happens to Elizabeth and Logan? Does he tell her the truth about his search for her?

Nicholas Sparks takes the reader on a journey as his lead character searches for the woman in the photo. Sparks draws the reader into this story and makes them feel like they are assisting Logan Thibault in this search. The author is known for many excellent books and what makes them all so good is his special ability to create great characters. The Lucky One will not disappoint you. There are many subplots within this story. As with several books written by Nicholas Sparks, there is that special touch of romance in the story. I also liked the way that the lead character showed so much compassion for his dog. Some of Nicholas Sparks books have been made into movies. I would not be surprised if this one became a movie also. Be sure to add The Lucky One to your reading list.
