The One

This novel definitely pushes boundaries and has to be one of the most interesting and addictive books I’ve read in a long time.

There are plot twists a plenty and the short alternating chapters made the book very hard to put down. I became completely invested in the characters, their stories and their emotional journeys to find the love they are so desperate for, who wouldn’t want to love and be loved so unconditionally? I found myself willing them all to have their happy endings, even the more sinister characters.

The science-fiction twist to this psychological thriller makes the plot seem like a disturbingly real possibility, a unique quality that I loved. Would you take the test? What would you do if you were ‘Matched’?
