The One by John Marrs

Wow! This book is really great. I stumbled upon the recommendation from a Book club online group and read it had been extremely successful in the UK.

The book takes place in a world where almost every single person has been “matched” by their DNA to their perfect person. Some people love it, some hate it- but the novel follows the lives of 5 characters as they go about meeting and finding their perfect match. Each chapter alternates between a different character’s story which makes the suspense of what is happening to each character really be drawn out across the novel. I loved this book, I truly didn’t see some of the twists coming and thought the character development and storyline was extremely well executed.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Also worth mentioning- I am normally a fast reader and this book actually took me a few days! (Which is a good thing!)

That’s the promise made by Match Your DNA. A decade ago, the company announced that they had found the gene that pairs each of us with our soul mate. Since then, millions of people around the world have been matched. But the discovery has its downsides: test results have led to the breakup of countless relationships and upended the traditional ideas of dating, romance and love.

Now five very different people have received the notification that they’ve been “Matched.” They’re each about to meet their one true love. But “happily ever after” isn’t guaranteed for everyone. Because even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking than others…
