How far would you go to find THE ONE?
One simple mouth swab is all it takes. A quick DNA test to find your perfect partner – the one you’re genetically made for.
A decade after scientists discover everyone has a gene they share with just one other person, millions have taken the test, desperate to find true love. Now, five more people meet their Match. But even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking – and deadlier – than others…
Well what can I say about this book that hasn’t been said already? After reading rave review after rave review I had an audible credit to use and I thought ‘why not’, and I’m pleased to say I wasn’t disappointed in fact I enjoyed every minute of it.
The 5 main characters were believable and you invested yourself in each one throughout, even the characters who played a minor role in the book are well crafted and fitted in perfectly. The narrators read the parts well, at a good pace, drawing me in with just the right amount of suspense that kept the story moving.
The themes touched on in the book relate to what is happening in today’s world, love, loss, homosexuality, divorce and affairs, it paints a very dark picture.
But if you can stick with it, there is light at the end of this tunnel, as you step over every body in the 103 chapters you are rewarded with a brilliantly crafted story that’s both dark as night and bright as day.
In my opinion it is well worth the journey and I am looking forward to exploring more of John Marr’s work.

I listen to audiobooks all the time so I’m interested in them being reviewed.
It is definitely a different experience from reading. I’m in a book group and have often found that, if I’ve listened to the book-of-the-month, rather than reading it, I have a different reaction to it from the others.
Will look forward to more reviews from you. It’s really good to get a Facebook prompt as well as I might miss it or forget to look. Thanks for doing this.
‘ve just finished Margaret Attwood’s latest: ‘The Heart Goes Last’, a weird, dystopian tale. Quite fascinating in a weird way, as all her books are. The audio used two vices, male and female, which worked well, I thought.

I think audiobooks that use multiple readers can only add to a story and make it deeper
I’ve been on the fence about this one. One of the reasons was it was released and then re-released not too long after. I don’t know why that bothers me, but it does. I’m glad to hear you liked it though. It definitely sounds intriguing.
