the lucky one

December 21, 2010

I lost a friend today.  

He was someone I barely knew. I got to know him in three short days and then he was gone. He came into my life and spent every waking hour with me in my thoughts. I was worried if he would make it in his journey or whether he was safe or not. He seemed really troubled by a past that was more haunting to him than his future.

Those are some of the feelings I got while I was reading the Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks.  These days I’m lucky if I can start a book but to finish it is even more awesome.  Lately books are not doing what they used to do for me. Be my escape.  They would take me to different lands: past, present, but never the future because I would not read science fiction.   I do not mind sci-fi movies but that I will save for another day, another post.

My latest read was: The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks.

This is a quick synopsis about the book from B&N:

“After U.S. Marine Logan Thibault finds a photograph of a smiling young woman buried in the dirt during his tour of duty in Iraq, he experiences a sudden streak of luck — winning poker games and even surviving deadly combat. Only his best friend, Victor, seems to have an explanation for his good fortune: the photograph — his lucky charm.

Back home in Colorado, Thibault can’t seem to get the woman in the photograph out of his mind and he sets out on a journey across the country to find her. But Thibault is caught off guard by the strong attraction he feels for the woman he encounters in North Carolina – Elizabeth, a divorced mother — and he keeps the story of the photo, and his luck, a secret. As he and Elizabeth embark upon a passionate love affair, his secret soon threatens to tear them apart — destroying not only their love, but also their lives.

Filled with tender romance and terrific suspense, THE LUCKY ONE is an unforgettable story about the surprising paths our lives often take and the power of fate to guide us to true and everlasting love.”

So what are you reading lately?

    Hi Marjn,

    I’m following you on Twitter now XD I’m reading Dipped into Oblivion by Sacha Bonsor…she also had an angioma like me in her medulla. Anyway, I thought it’d be good to recommend as I feel as she does in this book most of the time. It was only .93 cents (I know!) and is hardcover. I can send it to you after I’m done reading it, if you’d like that.

    Sometimes books become dear friends and we’re sad once the last page has been turned. It’s better to feel that way than relieved to be done reading it, right? Take care.

    yeah thatd be cool. i cant wait to read it. in some ways when reading, if the people are so relatable then i feel as if i know what they are going through by just reading the pages. weird? i dont know.

    yeah books are dear friends but with a book you have all these questions left at the end and you want to know how they are doing and coping but can’t. sometimes i wish you could.
