The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks

Another book down in my 100 in 2010 challenge, my first from the 2009 best-seller category. All books I've ever read by Nicholas Sparks are fairly similar; boy meets girl, girl falls in love with boy, and they somehow even though there may not be a happy ending, the book resolves itself happily. The Lucky One is not much different, but the ending was a lot less predictable for me than most of his books, and this one was less forgettable for that specific reason.

The story is about a man named Logan who finds a picture of a beautiful woman while serving in the marines in Iraq. The woman in the picture is wearing a shirt with the word, "Lucky," on it. After Logan finds the picture, his luck turns and he ends up staying alive through the war while many of his friends and colleagues do not. Logan sets out to find this woman, Elizabeth, and the real story begins when he does.

This book has a lot more than just fluff and romance behind it. It deals with a lot of different types of relationships, and I really enjoyed it. And I'll probably go see it when they make it into a movie (because that's what they tend to do with Nicholas Sparks' books). 4 stars.
