Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Truly entertaining...

What if there were a gene, a part of your DNA, that when tested, would ensure you could find your soulmate? Would you go for it? Or would you still prefer to find the person you were meant to be with the old fashioned way? The One follows 5 separate people on their journey with their newly found Matched person….and it doesn’t all end in happily ever after.

Mandy, Jade, Nick, Christopher and Ellie have all discovered their “soulmate” through the website Match Your DNA. But as you can imagine many obstacles get in the way of true happiness...

Pros: Incredibly clever premise, and just the right amount of characters to keep it interesting.

Cons: Actually I liked it quite a lot...but I definitely wouldn’t call it a thriller...more of a thought provoking drama.

Great read...but adjust your expectations so you aren’t disappointed if you are expecting a thriller.

Found this book a fast paced read.

Movie is about 5 characters who take a DNA matching test.

They are matched with their soulmates only to find out that....

Really excellent book about several people whose lives get thoroughly thrown into chaos by seeking their soul-mate through this match-making service. Nothing turns out the way anyone was expecting. Highly recommended.
