''I'm not sure what I should put for an address. Like I said, I just got to town and I'm staying at the Holiday Motor Court. I could also use my mom's mailing address in Colorado. Which would you prefer?''
''Yeah, I know. Kind of far from here.''

You, he thought. I came to find you.
Nicholas Sparks has his reputation of writing the most popular and some quite beautiful/original love stories. Of course, The Lucky One was no exception. There were some ele ...more
Opening Line:"Deputy Keith Clayton hadn't heard them approach, and up close, he didn't like the looks of them any more then he had the first time he'd seen them."
THE LUCKY ONE is another great read from Nicholas Sparks. Here we are given a story with a slightly darker edge and far more suspense then his usual soppy romance. Dog lovers and fans of The Guardian in particular will appreciate this engaging romantic suspense.
One of the great (or ...more
Almost feel that NS is becoming a bit Danielle Steeleish in his writing...formula, token sex, surprise of who died/lived.
All in all...not a bad book for a cold weekend!
His dialogue is completely flat, and it doesn't help when he throws in comments such as "he liked her wit" when nothing at all witty had been said. I can only imagine he is working toward a certain word count when he describes every step of making tacos and homemade ice cream. I've heard that he disdains the label of romance author for himself, but most romance authors I read can write circles around him.
Okay... Let me begin with some positives so I can avoid being hunted down and beaten by the army of Nicholas Sparks fans.
Sparks is an excellent storyteller and a master of the romantic motif. He is good at taking a timeless story element and putting a new spin on it. He is also good with pacing, using smooth and lyrical words during romantic moments and quick and terse words in the more suspenseful moments.
There are few things more irr ...more
By now the author pretty much has a formula which he follows in most of his books: always set it his home state of North Carolina, there is always a storm where the plot twists and/or reaches its climax, someone usually dies, and the couples always fall in love and end up in bed--usually, boring, uninteresting sex e ...more
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 ...more
I did like the story, I'm a sap for romance, I loved the character Logan.
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. (Ex. finally was ...more
“It was their secret, a secret meant for just the two of them, and she'd never been able to imagine how it would sound coming from someone else. But, somehow, Logan made it sound just right.”
Such a great book.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.Eliza ...more

V téhle knížce se mi líbila přítomnost pejsků (Zoro - pejsek hlavního hrdiny - je prostě skvělý :-) ). Mohla bych tedy říct, že bych tuhle knihu doporučila i milovníkům pejsků...
Příběh není nikterak náročný, asi je i lehce předvídatelný, ale Sparks umí lám ...more
When Logan Thibault, a Marine serving in Iraq, finds a picture of a pretty woman in the sand, his friend Vincent considers it to be Thibault's good luck charm. Thibault doesn't, but whatever. Once out of the Marines, Thibault tracks down Elizabeth -- the woman in the photo -- by walking -- yes, walking -- from his Colorado home to a small North Carolina town. There, he finds out she's a single mother. And her ex-husband, a deputy, is an assh ...more
About a third of the way through, I was shaking my head at the complete and utter CHEESINESS of the story. 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 ...more
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 ...more

Rating: 4/5 stars
This is my first Nicholas Sparks book. And OMG this was so awesome!! Like I totally loved it.
To be honest I first thought that I would put it down after a few chapters; but then everything started to, you know, mix together so perfectly, that I couldn't help but loved it.
The writing style was nice and simple, with no use of tric ...more
Siempre hay una primera vez para todo.
Me gustó. Sip. No shame.
Logan, encuentra esa fotografía en la arena y su suerte cambia completamente. Aunque no está seguro de lo que significa, la conserva con él durante cinco años. Cuando se encuentra más perdido de lo que hubiera deseado, decide ir en su busca. En parte le debe su vida, y en parte siente que algo debe hacerse.
Esta parte es MUY extraña. MUY MUY MUY. Muy raro, muy perturbador, muy escalofriante. Un tipo que no conoces de nada, que du ...more
