Much like the two books I've read previously, this one moves at an almost breakneck pace, and the 5 very different stories are incredibly balanced.

Martin Seligman, past president of the American Psychological Association, there are 5 factors that contribute to our happiness: positive emotion and pleasure, achievement, relationships, engagement, and meaning. Extraordinary success usually starts with one passion that “shines through” and often turns into one skill that defines who you are. In The One scientists had previously discovered a gene which you only share with one other person, your DNA match. Both the Hastings doors and the Cordova Courtyard doors can be operated by accessibility buttons located beside the doorways.This second section of the book deals with productivity principles like habit-building and benchmarking. This company has discovered something in our DNA that matches us with one other person on this planet - our "soul mate" and if you take a simple DNA test you can find who you are supposed to be with. Her second novel, Crosshairs, was shortlisted for the Toronto Book Award and made the CBC's Best Canadian Fiction, NOW Magazine's 10 Best Books, Indigo Best Book, and NBC 20 Best LGBTQ Books list of 2020. looking back, i think i would have preferred this to be a collection of consecutive short stories, rather than have alternating POVs.

Three years after Emma's death Dexter travels with his daughter to Edinburgh, where he and Emma met, and they climb the same hill together that he and Emma climbed 19 years earlier. Ultimately though the characters are two dimensional and the situations flick between clichéd and far fetched. It is simply a futuristic idea, that with the popularity of DNA kits right now, might give one pause, adding in a niggling feeling of unease. THE ONE reads like a dramatic TV show—its alternating focus on five different couples draws the reader into a wholly entertaining web of secrets, lies, and their ramifications.I was happy to follow the characters through each of their personal ordeals and knowing what the future held was a plus. THE ONE has been compared to the dark TV show Black Mirror, a comparison which - though perhaps not quite apt - nevertheless gives the reader a general sense of the tone of this book.

At the time of the book's publication, Nicholls wrote that he was adapting his novel as a film script. Matthew wants Ellie to feel the pain he's held on to for years, but furthermore, he wants to humiliate her. i get why its formatted that way - each chapter ends on a mini-cliff hanger, so it keeps the reader wanting to continue. His creativity knows no bounds with this one, a fascinating concept born out of a blend of sci-fi, romance, technology, with a dash of suspense. For example, you’re driving and looking at the road, and someone is describing furniture they bought.And when what you go for is as vast as you can possibly envision, you’ll be living the biggest life you can possibly live.

And when you focus on something that is truly important, you will have to leave something underserved: Extraordinary results require focused attention and time. The structure of this book, with its quick pacing and shifting focuses, lends itself to binge-reading; in fact, I did just that, and read this book in two sittings.

I will say though that Nick's story line was my favorite and am glad he and his match found happiness at the end. As, I followed their stories, I predicted where a couple of them were going, but I was shocked by how others turned out. Ranked from Christmas level 1 - 5 (with Level 1 being Christmas in the background of the story, and Level 5 being a full-on, 100% Christmas-y plot! Highly recommended for fans of Lisa Jewell’s THEN SHE WAS GONE and Jennifer Hillier’s LITTLE SECRETS, this is a 2023 mystery not to be missed.
