#1 REVIEWERon 14 May 2018
I needed a novel that made me think and kept twisting and turning and ‘The One by John Marrs did that as it is a novel set apart from the rest in its psychological thriller genre.

This is a very different book from others that I have previously read. There are five major characters and each chapter tells about one. At first it was a little confusing but as I continued to read it became a lot clearer. I cannot begin to tell you how unusual this book really is, I was hooked on it completely.

The world has taken a huge leap forward in terms of what technology can now deliver and no longer are people left to search for their soul-mates as Scientists have discovered a gene which genetically links people together, resulting in happy, secure relationships.

Marr's introduces readers to a small and select group of characters whose separate journeys we follow throughout the novel with each of these characters are all in completely unique situations with the results from their DNA matching scattering them in different directions.

Marrs always seemed to finish his chapters with something teasing, so I raced through the pages. There were plenty of shocks and so many twists and turns, it was exhilarating.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 8 February 2018
Great read. Not quite what I expected, but this book presents a number of parallel stories all of which tell their own unique but related tales. Really well written, refreshingly original and great characters. Pretty much all emotions will surface as you read this book, including some real laugh out loud moments and shocking twists.

Definitely recommended.

Poorly drawn characters that you have no interest or connection with. Chapters so short that if you blink you'll miss them. A writing style that seems to be targeted at tweenies. Nothing unputdownable, psychological or even thrilling in this one.

An entertaining mix of SF, crime fiction and several (abnormal) love stories intertwined.

The characters and scenarios are believable and the book forces you to consider some interesting questions about the nature of love and the human condition.

Great read! Full of anticipation. Loved the fact of several stories being told with different consequences for each individual. Psychological thriller with many twists and turns. I couldn’t put this book down.

Oh wow!! This was one of the best novels I've read in a very long time. Just page after page of juice reading. The characters were so likeable and the author had a clever way of making each character so real. The structure of the story, with each chapter relating to a different character was a masterstroke. Loved it. Just so sad that its finished.

I found this a very interesting read, The One makes you think about your values and how very easily technology can manipulate them!

If you ignore a few gaps in logic of the central theme of the book, it’s a good read, enjoyable and well written
