A Thousand Small Explosions/The One – John Marrs – Genre: Thriller
Blurb: One simple mouth swab is all it takes.
One tiny DNA test to find your perfect partner – the one you’re genetically made for.
A decade after scientists discover everyone has a gene they share with just one person, millions have taken the test, desperate to find true love.
Now, five more people take the test. But even soul mates have secrets.
And some are more shocking, heartbreaking and deadlier than others.
My Review: This is the 3rd book I’ve read by John Marrs and once again he has created an original and thought provoking storyline centred around finding your perfect DNA match via a website. Following 5 individuals quest to find their perfect match, each story is full of love, sadness, hope and humour with the inevitable Marrs twist thrown in. I found this gripping and a real page turner, my heart was pounding at particular places and I really didn’t know where each chapter would take me. 5 big fat stars from me.
