Now she's made her choice . . and she's prepared to fight for the future she wants.
Find out who America will choose in The One, the enchanting, beautifully romantic third book in the Selection series!
This is easily the best book in the series. I wasn't sure if any of them was going to trump The Selection but The One smashed it right out of the park. This was such an exciting and captivating read. I honestly could not put it down. All of the events which unfold all worked towards the bigger picture and there are some things that I most certainly didn't see coming. This wasn't the predictable book series that I thought it was going to be. The world of America, Maxon and Aspen completely absorbed me and it's so intense that it feels pretty much impossible to leave the world without feeling a little exhausted.
At the beginning of The One I felt that the romance was getting a little exhausting; that enough was enough. The deeper into the book I went, the more shocking things became however. I think the reason people find it so difficult is that each book takes place over such a short space of time it gives the impression that the love triangle is going on for the longest time. That and I felt a lot of empathy towards all three characters. Something which doesn't happen a lot when it comes to love triangles in most books.
The One is the perfect end to America's story. If you haven't started this series, I strongly urge you to. I promise you won't look back!
