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.
