The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks

How I Read It: Audiobook/ Ebook

Dates Read: 6/23/19-6/24/19

I feel like the farther into this author series, the harder it is for me to start these. But we are just going to plow right on through! Welcome back to another day which is also FRIDAY, let’s party! Okay, I am not doing well here. Let’s just get into the synopsis, shall we?

Let’s start with Logan Thibault (pronounced Tee-bow). He was a marine in the Iraq war, where he found a photograph. That photograph became his saving grace, and he promised that he would find the woman in the picture and thank her for all the times she saved his life in the war. Using clues from the picture, he walked (along with his dog, Zeus) from Colorado to Hampton, NC to meet the woman, named Beth.

Beth is the granddaughter of the kennel owner, the ex-wife of the deputy sheriff, the mother of a son, and the sister of a marine. When Logan meets Beth, he takes the job at the kennels in order to be close to her. As they began to get close, their feelings began to grow until they completely consumed them. But the secret as to why he is there continues to build, especially as the ex-husband gets more involved.

I really enjoyed reading this book! My only issue with this one is the ending. I was getting closer and closer to the ending and felt nervous that the ending would not have the luxury of description and context the way the rest of the book. My fears were justified, and I wish the ending was given a few more pages of content just so the ending could be explained more.

I have no idea why I am so surprised when a movie follows a book well. Plus, Zac Efron isn’t bad to look at (don’t mind the blushing). I surprisingly have no complaints about this movie, which says a lot. If you are looking for a Nicholas Sparks movie that follows the book to a tee, here ya go!
