The Lucky One, Nicholas Sparks

The Lucky One, by Nicholas Sparks is an outstanding love story. It has several settings the first is in Iraq. When a soldier, Logan, finds a picture of a beautiful women while on his daily run. At first he thought nothing of the picture but he kept it just in case it belonged to someone. No one claimed it and for some unknown reason he decided to keep it. The picture gave him luck in almost all aspects of his life. He was always safe in combat won nightly poker games and did not lose any more of his friends in battle. When he was released from duty he decided he had to find this women. Logan walked all the way from Colorado to a small southern town where the women in the picture, Elizabeth, lived. Logan was too scared to tell her the real reason he came to this small southern town that barely makes the map. He took a job as a dog groomer for her family in order to get as close as he can to her. Eventually Logan and Elizabeth did fall in love it seemed like they were made for each other. Logan eventually told her the real reason he went all the way to Hampton from Colorado. She did not take this news lightly, she refused to even talk to him ending the relationship. The last few chapters reveal if Logan and Elizabeth will ever be able to make things work between them.
1. Do you think Elizabeth should forgive Logan.
2. Do you think they are an example of love at first sight?

1. I think that Elizabeth should forgive Logan eventually. It was hard for Logan to decide if he should tell her, because he didn't want to ruin things. I think that if it is really true love, she will forgive him in the end.

Question #2: No, I don't think it was an example of love at first sight, because it was love at first sight only to Elizabeth. Logan sort of wanted to take advantage of her at first. He just wanted to be near her because she supposedly had good luck.

1.) Logan tricked her. She should not forgive him because not being honest is not a good basis for a relationship.

2.) It is not love at first sight. Logan did not fall in love with her when he found her picture, and only after a while did he start to feel that he should look for her.

2. I don't think Logan and Elizabeth were an example of love at first sight. Since she had good luck he wanted to be with her.

1. Yes, Elizabeth should forgive. If she really loved him than she wouldn't really care.
2. No, I think this is an example of fate and destiny. They were destined to be together.

1. I think that she should forgive Logan. Even though it might be very difficult she should still forgive him if she truely loved him.

1. yes elizabeth should forgive. he did what he thought was right and it ultimately gave them both a lot of happiness. if she really loved him she would get over it.
2.yes i do think it was an example of love at first sight because even before he knew the picture was lucky he decided to keep it because he knew she was something special just through the picture

I think she should have forgiven him and it was childish of her not to. Yes he did lie to her but if they were that much in love then the reason they came together shouldn't matter, all that should matter is that it happened.
