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: 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.
Nana was funny, lovable, and provided some solid heart for all of the characters. The rest of the characters, however, seemed straight out of the book of character cliches strong, determined female lead, controlling ex-husband, conflicted child divorce victim. It may be a while before I read another Nicholas Sparks book. Maybe one day when I just want to read a good story with predictable characters, no surprises, and that makes me say, "Gee, that was nice" but probably won't stick with me long after I've finished it.

Nicholas Sparks is an author that most folks know you can count on to tell a beautiful story so this one has been on my TBR and luckily enough I was gifted a review copy and finally got the chance to read it.
Logan had found a photograph of a young woman The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks is a contemporary romance that was originally published back in but is now being republished. When luck seemed to follow Logan every where his friend was insistent that the photo was good luck and he would need to repay the woman someday.
Armed with only the photo and the few clues it offers Logan set out across the U. When Logan finally found the small town where the photo was taken he finally was able to approach Elizabeth but the truth of his arrival seemed a bit much to tell a stranger so Logan held off but as the two grow closer will that be the wrong choice?
Definitely a great story from this great author. I received an advance copy from the publisher. For more reviews please visit https: This wasn't one of my absolute favorites--just okay.
By now the author pretty much has a formula which he follows in most of his books: This 14th novel is no different. Logan Thibault is an ex-marine in search of a woman whose photo he's been carrying for the past five years.
He found it in the sand in Iraq and ever since he has carried it, he has felt lucky. It has helped him win big at poker games, and kept him alive in situations that, by all accounts, should have ended his life. His friend, Victor tells him he has a debt to pay to the woman in the photo as it has proved to be a lucky charm.
When tragedy strikes, Logan follows his friend's advice and sets out on foot, with his dog, Zeus, from Colorado to North Carolina, stopping along the way to seek information about E. Upon entering Hampton County, Logan has a run in with the local sherrif who doesn't like the looks of him or of his German shepard. This sherrif later on becomes a big player in this story as he interferes in Thibault's life and plans. Here is where the action begins. Of course, Thibault finds the woman in the photograph and what usually happens in Sparks novels happens, but the story lacked the passion found in "The Notebook" and "Nights in Rodanthe".
I don't feel like Sparks ever really peels back enough of the layers that make up these characters. I never get to know them as well as I should. A lot of his stories are just on the surface--and once in a while he ends up with a winner like the two previously mentioned books.
For the most part though, his books are airport novels--an appropriate read to pass the time but it doesn't stay with you. I have found that to be the biggest disappointment with most of his books. NONE of them are keepers. Here is another one for the donation pile. View all 15 comments. May 22, Amanda rated it it was amazing. Whenever I go to read a Nicholas Sparks book my first and usually only question to anyone who has read it is "Am I going to cry?
Since, I now want fun books with happy endings, it breaks my heart when this happens. However, Sparks has such a rich and inviting writing style that even with these reoccurring tragic endings, I can't help but fall in love with any and all of his books.
The charac Whenever I go to read a Nicholas Sparks book my first and usually only question to anyone who has read it is "Am I going to cry? The characters come alive and the love stories are magical, yet real at time. It is a beautiful story with strong, animated characters.
Logan Thibault is one of my favorite characters in literature. He is Veteran of the U. Marines and a quiet, confident man who is looking for his destiny. He finds it in Elizabeth, a single mom living in her hometown of Hampton, NC.
Their story is beautiful and a delight to read. The story is compelling and sweet. Sparks is at his best when writing this novel. And to answer the question of whether I cried I did not. At least, there were no sad tears. But it is a story that stays with you, in a good way. I give "The Lucky One" five out of five stars.
I love this novel and if you are a fan of Sparks' work or love stories in general then this is a novel for you. View all 3 comments. Jun 16, Hiba Arrame rated it it was amazing Shelves: Thank you Nicholas Sparks for the heart attack you almost caused me with that ending!
I was this close to lose my mind over Logan. It's a beautiful story, beautifully written, and very enjoyable, it evokes faith, luck, destiny, all gathered in a former marine's life, and his journey to accomplish what had started in his life because of a photograph.
IDK why! But I always find Sparks' stories so enjoyable, like they keep one's mind away from his own crap, and make it wander away in the era and Thank you Nicholas Sparks for the heart attack you almost caused me with that ending! But I always find Sparks' stories so enjoyable, like they keep one's mind away from his own crap, and make it wander away in the era and place where the told story is taking place. I liked it, I actually loved it, I also loved Logan's character, boy, was he amazing!
And I found myself sticking my tongue like a child at Keith in different parts of the book. Sep 04, Kelly Moran rated it it was amazing Shelves: Nicholas Sparks is a 1 New York Times best-selling author with over fifty million copies of his books in print worldwide and translated into over forty languages. Other titles include: Nicholas Sparks has also had four of his novels adapted into major motion pictures including: Nicholas Sparks resides in North Carolina with his wife and family.
While in his third tour of duty in Iraq, U. Marine Logan Thibault happens upon a half-buried photograph of a beautiful young woman, simply known as E. After no one has claimed it, Logan finds himself drawn to it and carrying it in his pocket wherever he goes.
More importantly, he discovers it brings him luck. His friend, Victor, seems to think it was his fate to find it and calls it his lucky charm. Understanding just how crazy it was, he sets forth on foot from Colorado to North Carolina in search of what very well may be his destiny. Pursuing the path he chose and attraction for Beth, they ignite a passionate affair of the heart, never knowing that the secret of how he came about the photo could destroy everything he had waited his entire life to find.
How rare it is to find a man who can craft a story in this genre with so much insight in the human condition, affairs of the heart, the importance of family- and to do it in a manner that always seems new and unique.
I find that to be the best part of this author, that when he has you crying, laughing, or ready to spit nails, he has the power to make you believe that anything is possible- that fate and destiny are not myths, after all. Insert sigh here , Another great read from a true gem in this genre. The Lucky One, by Nicholas Sparks, is an engaging, charming, and witty tale, determined to restore your faith in happily ever after again. Kelly Moran Author and Reviewer Jan 05, Anna Marie rated it it was ok.
I read it because I can't watch a movie without reading the book, first. What I want to know is, HOW this man got so popular? He can't write for crap. Utterly unbelievable. Let's be a little realistic, shall we?
Yet every time we see her in the book, she's just hanging out on the porch. Then there's Logan, who only exists in someone's imagination. A man who is that perfect does not live. He's a pianist. A violinist. Has a degree in Anthropology. Fixes cars. Trains animals. Is a war hero. Then there's fun little stupid things like when Nicholas Sparks has Elizabeth planting thousands of tulips and daffodils every spring, so they can come up after the azaleas.
The man drives me crazy. And I'm not even sure I want to see the movie. The book says Logan got a degree in anthropology, has done three tours of duty as a Marine in Iraq, has 'wild' hair and a vagabond appearance and "doesn't look like a college student" You have GOT to be kidding me.
And yet all of his books become movies. I don't get it. Dec 20, AnnaMay rated it it was ok. Okay, so this book followed my reading of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. After that great work of literature, anything would pale, probably. Maybe I'm not being fair, but I really just didn't care for Sparks' latest. I've only read a few of his books, but already I'm seeing a pattern and I found myself getting bored and saying, "Awe, come on," throughout.
The plot was too predictable, the characters were too generic, and I guess I just wasn't in to the whole storyline.
The creepy cop ex-husband didn't help my desire to continue reading, either. That's how I'd describe it. Trite and that it left me feeling let-down. That being said, I read the book in a day I kept wanting to be done with it and get it over with.
The Lucky One
While it was a rather harmless, quick-read romance, which I like at times , I don't think I'll read another of Sparks' books. Too bad. I had liked previous books by him. He's gotta do better than this, though. Oh, and it kind of bugs me that he puts a full-blown photo of himself on the back cover of the book.
What's that all about? I felt like I had to turn the book over so I didn't see him staring up at me whenever I set it down. My husband is better-looking by far. I should have taped a picture of him on the book: Maybe I'm too harsh, but that's my sum-up of this one.
Dec 22, Syndi rated it really liked it. The lucky one. Just like the title, mr SParks is telling us about believing in luck. Life is hard and sometimes along the way u encounter luck. Things that u can not explain but just believe on it and hold on tight. The story befins where logan finds a picture of a woman in kuwait during his tour of duty. And after that his luck change. He somehow survived many horrible and even death.
He reluctantly believe its because of that picture.
So when he was discharged, he searched for the woman in the The lucky one. So when he was discharged, he searched for the woman in the picture and brings him to beth.
A single mother. Like many nicholas sparks book, the story is fully laden with melancholic and tear jearker moments. I loke the book even though i feel its tad too long.
Especially building up the chemistry between beth and logan. Nevertheless, i now do believe in luck. Feb 02, Katie rated it liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
To view it, click here. At least this one has a happy ending I am noticing a pattern in Sparks' books though which is kinda disappointing because I have enjoyed the few that I've read, but it seems like they always contain the same core elements.
One thing that annoyed me in this book which, I realize, has nothing to do with the storyline at all is that when they are making homemade ice cream, Sparks lists the ingredients they are adding which include a cup of flour. You don't put flour in homemade ice cream!
Did t At least this one has a happy ending Did that bother anyone else, or just me? Other than that, I always notice spelling errors in Sparks' books that a simple proofread could have easily corrected. Nov 23, Ashley rated it liked it. Started off a little slow, maybe because he spent so much time introducing the characters. But good thing you don't read the beginning last. I did like the story, I'm a sap for romance, I loved the character Logan.
The Feature Film
On a side note I couldn't get past some of the writing. For being such a famous author I would think they would use spell check or something before they published it.
They even spelled one of the main characters wrong Clayton was Cayton. And maybe I don't know enough about writing, but there was a phrase used that didn't seem to fit in the spot it was used. I get what it is saying here, I understand the phrase, but what is "it"?
Any English majors out there? Ok I'm dumb for thinking way too much into this. I liked the book. I always enjoy re-reading this book.
But, somehow, Logan made it sound just right. I really liked the whole concept of this book,it's very interesting. Logan is such an amazing character,he's pretty much my new fictional crush. But I do agree that he should have told Elizabeth about the photo as soon as he met her,that would make both his and her life so much easier.
Elizabeth is actually a really cool character,I liked her a lot. I like the fact that even though she got pregnant she went to college and got a good job.
I also love Ben,he's a sweetheart. And,of course,Nana! She's a freaking bad-ass! The romance between Logan and Elizabeth was sooo charming and lovely. It wasn't rushed,it was perfect.

And then there's Kit. That little motherfucker. It felt really strange and creepy to be reading the story from his perspective,I felt uncomfortable to be honest. I'm glad that he did care about his son after all and I like the fact that Elizabeth decided not to hate him. That's a healthy attitude. And that ending Favourite quotes: You recognize it instinctively, and you're certain that no matter what happens, there will never be another one like him.

Es una historia sencilla, tranquila incluso, que cuenta como Logan, nuestro protagonista se embarca en un largo viaje en busca de una persona. I'm not going to lie: I read this book because I wanted to watch the film and I wanted to watch the film because Zac Efron is in it and I wanted to stare at Zac Efron for 90 minutes because I am shallow.
I also wanted to read the book because I'm fascinated by the fact that so many of Nicholas Sparks' novels have been turned into films.
Is he really that good or just he have an extraordinary agent? Well, I enjoyed this book. Between reading the blurb and seeing the trailer for the film, I knew exa I'm not going to lie: Between reading the blurb and seeing the trailer for the film, I knew exactly what I was in for and it delivered it well.
Crowned king of the romance, emperor of the love stories that hit you where it hurts the most. Allow me to be frank here, my dear Nicholas, I am slightly disappointed. The Lucky One has everything I need in a book for me to be moved and emotionally kicked always in a good way, of course.
But there was something missing, I seriously feel like there was a good chunk of pages missing from my copy. And it's a shame, really, because Sparks plotting lives up to all the hype. And the way he builds the characters relationships, slowly but carefully, tied me to the story in the matter of a few seconds. Okay, and maybe the fact that I loved Thibault since page one. But the main issue is that you would expect from the King of the cheese something BIG on the romance, and I am not talking about sex, no.
But rather than show the awaited moment where these 2 main characters finally give up to the sparks pun intented , he just tells the reader. Literally, "and then they kissed and made love" or "and then they saw each other for a few weeks". I don't know about you, but I am here for the cheese, and contrary to what everyone says about Sparks novels, this was low on the cheese and high on the character development.
Which is okay, but also underwhelming. Dec 29, Shannon rated it did not like it Shelves: I was waiting for a flight, desperate for reading material, so I picked this up at the airport book stall. I read the summary on the back cover and decided it sounded better than a James Patterson book, but definitely wasn't going to set my world on fire. Wow, was I right. So, I checked the front flap for the author's name and other works to make a mental note to avoid them in the future.
I I was waiting for a flight, desperate for reading material, so I picked this up at the airport book stall. I was certain it would be a female author; this book has all the hallmarks of girly, escapist fiction. Then, I saw the list: Except Twilight. I'll admit it; I read that series. In fact, I was once forced by my little sister to watch the movie, The Notebook, and I have never laughed so hard in my life.
