After U.S. Marine Logan Thibault finds a photograph of a smiling young woman buried in the dirt during his tour of duty in Iraq, he experiences a sudden streak of luck -- winning poker games and even surviving deadly combat. Only his best friend, Victor, seems to have an explanation for his good fortune: the photograph -- his lucky charm.

Back home in Colorado, Thibault can't seem to get the woman in the photograph out of his mind and he sets out on a journey across the country to find her. But Thibault is caught off guard by the strong attraction he feels for the woman he encounters in North Carolina - Elizabeth, a divorced mother -- and he keeps the story of the photo, and his luck, a secret. As he and Elizabeth embark upon a passionate love affair, his secret soon threatens to tear them apart -- destroying not only their love, but also their lives.


I already watched the movie adapted to this book a few years ago and that’s why I already knew some basic things which should happen in the book as well. But while reading there were lots of scenes which I didn’t expect to happen at all. In my opinion you can separate all Sparks books in categories: Either they are full of clichés or not & Either they have a happy ending or not. ‘The Lucky One’ has some clichés and you can guess what is going to happen at some points but it still has lots of great and shocking surprises. Nicholas Sparks is a great author who is able to make the reader keep reading. The characters are also well written. There are lots of characters which I like and also 1-2 which I don’t like. I’m a big fan of Zeus… he’s the dog of the main person :)
I would put the book to the better half of the Sparks books. I already read better books by him but it’s still so great! I can recommend it to all Sparks fans and fans of novels.
