     With The Lucky One I decided to give Nicholas Sparks another chance. Mainly because of the movie coming out. I read A Walk to Remember and also show the movie, I loved both. When I read Dear John that’s what turned me off of Nicholas Sparks books. However I decided to get him another chance with The Lucky One, and I am glad I did.
     Logan Thibault is a former Marine who after a picture in the Iraq desert walks from Colorado to North Carolina in order to find the woman in the photograph that kept him alive.  Logan’s character is so real, I mean what’s not to love about a Marine who’s willing to work across the country to say thank you.
     Beth (Elizabeth) Clayton is a single mom trying to raise a son Ben who is your typical ten years old. While helping her grandma (Nana) run a dog kennel. Who cannot get rid of her ex. Keith one of the town’s deputy sheriff’s.
     For a secular novel the book was fairly clean. I do not remember any cuss words in the novel, there were a few scenes where things were implied, but didn’t really give too many details are descriptions. I would say that this is a book for adults.  


  1. This movie looks sweet - but will most likely be tragic.

  2. If the movie actually follows the book then there should only be one or two tragic parts with a lot of sweet parts. If the director doesn't follow the book then who knows.

    1. Good to know, Carissa - thanks! I did "cheat" and discover that the book ends alright so I am hoping against hope that the screenplay follows those same patterns.
