"How far would you go to find The One? A simple DNA test is all it takes. Just a quick mouth swab and soon you'll be matched with your perfect partner--the one you're genetically made for. That's the promise made by Match Your DNA. A decade ago, the company announced that they had found the gene that pairs each of us with our soul mate. Since then, millions of people around the world have been matched. But the discovery has its downsides: test results have led to the breakup of countless relationships and upended the traditional ideas of dating, romance and love. Now five very different people have received the notification that they've been "Matched." They're each about to meet their one true love. But "happily ever after" isn't guaranteed for everyone. Because even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking than others... A word-of-mouth hit in the United Kingdom, The One is a fascinating novel that shows how even the simplest discoveries can have complicated consequences." -- Provided by publisher.

I really went back and forth on my thoughts about this book.
At first, I found it intriguing. Mid-way through, I was ready to give up because I thought the author was making a sham out of the institution of marriage and its foundation of love between two people. And sex was way too casual, cheap, and the author seemed very preoccupied with talking about it.
Towards the end, you started cheering for certain characters and despising others. Many of the characters were very shallow and yet some had some really wholesome qualities.
2 1/2 stars for intriguing, but no more because of the author fancying shallow characters.
