I just finished reading this about 20 minutes ago and I can barely remember their names. The tone: I loved the tone. Overall, The One has a 5-star premise, but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. View all 58 comments. Paraphrasing Blaise Pascal's famous quote, the heart has its own reasons which reason itself does not understand.
Truly, it is human nature to be inquisitive — poking, sticking our noses where it doesn't belong, meddling with "things" that we aren't supposed to be tampering wit "I wanted to meet the one who accepts me for who I am, who loves me for all my faults and my quirks, and who will be there by my side for whatever challenges come our way.
Truly, it is human nature to be inquisitive — poking, sticking our noses where it doesn't belong, meddling with "things" that we aren't supposed to be tampering with, playing God in many ways, at the same time, assimilating so much information that even the most esoteric minds cannot wholly comprehend. But what if scientists had actually proven that there's an element, a gene, a unique imprint that intrinsically links you and your other half exclusively?
And that all it would take is but a simple DNA assessment that could change your entire life by finding "The One" regardless of age, race, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical and mental state? Are you still willing to "give up everything and anyone you hold dear on the suggestion there might be something better around the corner"? In Black Mirror-esque style, Marrs conjures a cautionary tale with an interesting premise that malleably blends soft sci-fi with suspense along with the ontology of love.
The novel follows the lives of five individuals Mandy, Christopher, Jade, Nick, and Ellie as they find their one true love through a scientifically proven method known as Match Your DNA. Is love at first sight really possible? What if you're not actually in love, but you're in love with the concept of being in love? For some, it happens in an instant; for others, it can take several meetings or several days before the connection is made.
This can sometimes be due to the mental capacity of a couple or an individual, or an illness, which can affect the production of pheromones and receptors.

He also infuses numerous twists and turns although some are quite predictable encouraging his readers to consume this book. While this novel was entertaining and addictive albeit not chilling enough to binge-read, it lacks the tenebrosity and potency exuded by the British sci-fi series Black Mirror.
If you want a light and enticing read despite its drama-centric relationships and lack of multidimensional characters, then The One might be for you. This is, overall, a highly recommended read!

With a cliffhanger at the end of every chapter, all of them, and each of them littered with ethical and emotional dilemmas, this book was incredibly hard to put down; Marrs immediately draws you into each storyline and you have to know what happens next and quickly.
The book switches from 5 different characters stories and the individual journeys they embark upon when they discover who they are gentically destined to be with - their so called perfect 'one'.

Well, turns out an absolute butt load. This book was so incredibly engaging and clever, I'm almost worried that the next book I read won't come anywhere near this. John Marrs is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors. View all 31 comments. Outstandingly original!! I went into this one blind. Get tested, and if your soul mate has also been tested, you will be matched to the absolute love of your life. If only it were that simple…. This story examines five couples who have been matched and follow the path their lives take from that moment forward.
I thought this novel was ingenious. A great deal of thought went into this story. To think of all the various ways a dating system like this one would affect society, the consequences of allowing science to control something that important and so unpredictable, which relies on so many variables, is a fascinating concept. However, as with anything else that involves humans, there are bound to be flaws, maybe even loopholes, no one could possibly anticipate What about my personal pet peeves?
That large cast? All those twists? The book is very well constructed, which made it easy for me to keep up with everyone. The stories were not interconnected, which also helped. There were no implausible twists- they were spaced out and well-timed, inside a perfectly paced story. No surprises were added for mere shock value. There's nothing here about alpha quadrants, or anything else that might have gone over my head. 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 story has many facets, other than the Sci-Fi elements. Despite that, there are some truly tender moments, where love really does conquer all.

Now five more people meet their match but even soul mates have secrets and some are more shocking and deadlier than others" I just recently had my DNA test completed with Ancestry for family research and when I picked this book up in a book store recently I just had to give it try and what a great surprise it turned out to be as it was dark and disturbing with five very interesting characters and lots of twists and turns to keep the reader engrossed.
Short alternating chapters which I loved dedicated to each character make this one easy to follow and exciting. Fast pacced and extremely well plotted, this turned out to be a great psychological thriller that kept me up way past by bedtime. This was a book that stayed glued to my hands, I really was so enthralled with not only the superb writing but the plot. What an original high quality top marks concept of a wonderfully woven story. It's unlike any story that I've read before, so, this is so going to be remembered by me in the future as it stands out because of it.

That there is a genetic match Would you get tested even if you already had a partner? Just to see if they were genetically matched with you? Oh heck, what if they weren't. Each chapter took on several chapters individually and as couples. The chapters would read overlap to the next making it such a fantastic experience as a reader keeping abreast with individuals. This really has a thumbs up from me. I loved it. Thank you to Random House Ebury for my advanced copy to enjoy.
