BOOK REVIEW : The One by John Marrs 



• one of the most intriguing thriller. 

• it has such a different concept. 

• it is as if one is reading about personal life, of so many people. And you want all well for them. 

• never ever has any book of fiction talked about DNA in such a new way. 


the story has five point of view or stories which take this new DNA test which tells a person’s soul mate. And according to the test everyone has a soulmate. 

• each story stood aside one another yet together with one another. there lives are complicated after taking that test. 

• I went into this book knowing nothing and with low expectation but I was not disappointed at all yet I was impressed. 

• the best part about this book was that it never lost its punch , every chapter ended on a cliff hanger. 


the characters were well crafted. 

• their flaws and tension in their lives make them feel realistic. 

• creating such variety in character with such finess , really conveys the brilliance of a writer. 

Theme/ Writing

• the story follows no particular theme other than how people crave for true love and are so afraid of losing their love of life. 

• writing on the other hand is on point, not draggy – not detached, just the right amount for a thrill that was needed. 

The ending wanted me to read more about these characters. 

Highly recommended to the people who think that they are not meant for this thrillers ( I’m one of them ) but this one is an exception.
