Had looked so forward to this and just can't get into it.

​Excellent! Lovable characters with quirks, some laughs, some tears, some sex, a great dog ... I read it one go, far into the night. I just love it when I get a book good enough to do that!​

This book takes you through a roller coaster of tragic-turned-quirky events. It's as if Moyes never runs out of tragic, how-is-that-even-possible, events and yet it keeps you glued because no matter how wrong it turns out, everything seems to have a silver lining. Loved this book! Currently on withdrawals.

I don't know if I'm biased, but I haven't met and read a Moyes book that I've rated less than 5 stars yet. You can't go wrong!

This was my second “road trip” with the quirky bunch of misfits in ONE PLUS ONE, but I enjoyed this book as much as I had when I first read it almost 2 years ago. Yes, the story is kind of a modern day fairy tale, full of romantic comedy cliches, but it works. Author Jojo Moyes skillfully creates 4 engaging, believable characters (Jess, Ed, Nicky, and Tanzie) and in alternating chapters, each one relates the story from his/her own perspective. This narrative style adds a rich depth to the plot line. Like real life, ONE PLUS ONE has its moments of humor, love, heartache, and sadness, but ultimately it is a story of hope and family. With Moyes' bestseller, ME BEFORE YOU, now released as a major motion picture, can a film adaptation of ONE PLUS ONE be far behind?

I took off 1/2 a star because the book was too short. I could have read about this family for another 300 pages! loved it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am surprised that some of the comments by other readers fail to mention that, beyond some of the funny situations in this book lies a study of human nature and the positive effect one individual can have on another. It shows that good can come out of adversity and that forgiveness is the greatest gift. Go along on the incredible journey taken by Jess, Nick, Tanzie, Ed and yes, Norman the dog.

Everything seems to go wrong for Jess, her two kids, and a large slobbery dog, trying to survive bullies, two jobs, and a genius for a daughter. You would think that life has her beaten but, with a little help from a friend, she "sorts it all out"!
