5.0 out of 5 stars DON'T MISS THIS FOR ANYTHING IN THE WORLD!, February 26, 2014
This review is from: The One Plus One (Audible Audio Edition)
One Plus One by Jojo Moyes is a superbly crafted story which is a pure joy to read. After reading The Girl You Left Behind, The Last Letter From Your Lover, Me Before You and several others, it's almost impossible to imagine she could come up with something as spectacular and extraordinary as this. Yet, One Plus One proves that Jojo Moyes is still to attain her creative best, and a magnum opus is still in the offing.

Her latest offering is undoubtedly one of her best to date. It is a story that will blow you away with its simplicity and beauty. It is the story of Jess, a single parent, who is struggling hard to make both ends meet. She has two children - her daughter Tanzie, who is just eight, and her stepson, Nicky, who is a teen. They are amazing kids but with their own imperfections.

When Tanzie is offered the opportunity to gain a scholarship to the school of her dreams, Jess works hard to seize the chance. But in the process she fumbles leading to slip-ups and what follows is a rollicking disaster of imposing magnitudes - ensuing in a journey of a lifetime and the opportunity to change all their lives. Will Jess take control of the situation or will she let it slip by?

One Plus One is also the story of Ed whose life is falling apart at its seams. When a chance encounter brought them together, he is well aware that Jess and her two kids are the last things he needs. But he is drawn into their world, plunging his own into a deeper abyss. Yet, he is determined to help them out.

The book is emotionally poignant, yet it will make you laugh and scream in delight as you turn the pages. It is beautifully written as only Joio Moyes can, with the characters and their emotions reaching deep down into your heart, touching every part of your being. One Plus One is every reader's delight and every writer's envy.
