Teen Book Review: The Lucky One


Title: The Lucky One

Author: Nicholas Sparks

Stars (out of 5): 5

I recommend this book to anyone, because I was so drawn into this book as I was reading it; I couldn’t put the book down. At first it was confusing of who the narrator was because each chapter has a different character speaking than the one preceding and succeeding a given chapter. Overall, the story of the book has a fantasy like story line with the main character Logan finding a picture of a woman in a war zone half buried by dirt, which became his good luck charm when he survived an unusual amount of bombings. His friend Victor believed that Logan owed Beth, the woman in the picture for keeping him safe during his three tours to Iraq. So when he decided to go walk across the country from his mother’s home in Colorado to Hampton, NC, he was determined to find this unknown woman. It’s hard not to root for this ex-marine to find what becomes his future.

    I know that feeling when you lose track for a few pages when a new chapter starts. But Nicholas Sparks’ books are so well written, that you can’t put it down, so you have to continue reading. I met him and his wife in Miami some time ago, he’s a great guy and not a snob. Also, I like the idea of teens writing book reviews. Good to know that people still read books.
