The movie was great but I had to opportunity to read the book before watching the movie. This is truly a great story from Nicholas Sparks. The title "The Lucky One" is not really explained in the film, Victor tells Logan that he is "The Lucky One" because of the photo of Elizabeth (Beth). Another thing is that Logan doesn't call her Elizabeth in the movie, in the book he does and it strikes her because only her brother Drake had called her by her real first name. Also the way Drake died changed from the novel to the movie. In the novel Drake was killed by friendly fire, in the movie Logan tells Beth that he saw Drake when their platoons crossed and he was killed by enemy ambush. Victor dies from a boating accident in the novel, in the movie he is killed by enemy ambush. The death of Clayton in the novel is more elaborate. In fact in the book we aren't sure if Logan survived until the Epilogue. Other than the fact that the movie was a condensed version of the novel it was pretty good. The novel itself is exceptional. The film could have been better but what movie adapted from a book is without criticism?
