The company Match Your DNA claims to have found the gene that pairs each human being with his/her/their soul mate. Millions of people around the world have been matched with their technology. But the test results have led to breakups as well, as people leave their significant others (not their "matches") for those with whom they've been matched. "The One" follows five different people who have been matched and shows the sometimes shocking consequences of the search for one's soul mate. As it turns out, everyone has secrets.

Early on in this book I was thinking I would give it a 3-star rating. I had difficulty being drawn in by each of the five characters whose lives are being followed. Some of them I simply wasn't interested in. However, as the book continued, I was more and more intrigued, until I couldn't put the book down because I had to know what was going to happen to each of these people and how they were going to resolve their situations. The shocking secrets that are unveiled one by one create some really deliciously huge plot twists for each of these five people.

What a fun and diabolically entertaining book! ( )

This story is about what happens when you find your soul mate via DNA. Five sets of characters with very different lives and what happens to them because of the match.

This book is very soon to be on Netflix so I do like to read before I watch. This book is very popular so was expecting so much more.

I found the story hard to connect with at first because it follows five sets of characters and I had to keep up with who was who. Then I settled into the story. For the most part I was interested then I just lost it.

This story did go on and on. I found myself becoming so bored. I was expecting the story to have some sort of a thriller element to it but it didn't.

I have now read four books by this author. Two I really enjoyed and two I didn't. This book is probably the one he is known for the most but for me I really didn't enjoy it. Perhaps if there had have been less stories to follow then it could have been more to the point. ( )

This book had an interesting premise, and the author certainly upped the ante with some of the storylines within the book. There was plenty of tension and suspense and some good twists woven into the plot. My only complaint for this one is that there were quite a few main characters, and it took a while for me to keep them straight, but otherwise this was a fun and engaging thriller. ( )

While I'm not usually a fan of multiple story-lines, I didn't mind it so much in this case.
I found most of them quite interesting and I also liked how each of them ended.

I'm really happy I gave a chance to "The One"! ( )

A wickedly fun page turning thriller! I really enjoyed following the character's lives and relationships.
The dark ironic humor made me laugh, the suspense and twists shocked me. And by the end, I was rethinking the entire premise of the book. It was a fantastic spin on relationships, and the lengths people will go in order to find and be with "the one". A very entertaining and unusual book.
I hope the upcoming screen adaptation can effectively capture the storyline's substance and essence! ( )
