The One is told in the third person but it follows five very different characters on their journey, to find their one true love. Some of the characters are more complex than others, but each one has an unique story to tell, and I found myself desperate to find out how each of there story’s would evolve. Although the story is told from so many POV the author manages to move from one character to the next fluidly, it took me a few chapters to get used to the constant switching of characters, but once I did I was well and truly hooked. I really loved the way the author made the chapters short and snappy leaving each one on a cliff hanger, for me it just meant I kept promising myself “one more chapter” and before I knew it I had nearly finished this compelling read.Read more ›
I loved the prologue of The One. The very idea of finding your perfect match by handing in a sample of your DNA to meet "The One" had me intrigued.
This story got me hooked, especially the last 50% of it. There was so many twists and turns.
I loved reading about all the characters and how they were affected by finding there perfect match.
Anyone who loves a good thriller should defiantly get there hands on this, you won't be disappointed.
With A Thousand Small Explosions he has managed to create an eerily realistic storyline, a selection of great characters and an intriguing plot. The premise of people having a gene that matched them to their soulmate was intriguing - I found myself wondering what I would do if this was really a possibility and seeing the way this played out across the various storylines was a real pleasure. The characters were each well described and I could picture them clearly in my head and grew attached to them easily which for me is always a sign of a good book. My favourite storylines were those of Chris and Nick but they were all equally well developed and the plot lines were great. The book really does have something for everyone! Well done John - another 5 star book!
I loved the idea and found myself engrossed in the characters and their stories. They were sufficiently well-drawn and different that it was easy to follow from one to another as the chapters moved forward. The sections were fairly short so the page-turner element really kicked in. I hated leaving one story-line but after the first paragraph of the next, I remembered why I hadn’t wanted to leave this one the last time around. This is the third book of the authors that I’ve read and I think he’s getting better. Imagination and technique go hand in hand here and it’s a very compelling book indeed.
I received a review copy of this book from the author. I have since bought it. It's that good.
