This story was inspiring, it shared love loss, humor and adventure. It was so nice to hear the bright side, even with the losses & struggles that they experienced.
No, too much of an autobiography for me I guess.
Unsure, I have many downloaded.
No, it was almost painful.
I love everything else by Nicholas Sparks but this was long and drawn out.
NO! I have never read a Nicholas Sparks' novel so I was excited to read this one. I was so very disappointed because his style of writing was very simplistic and elementary. I could have written this book. How he got to be so famous is beyond me.
Nice and soothing, pleasant
Anger at having spent the money and time to read this book, sadness because it was so boring and disappointment because it was so shockingly insipid. His characters were so one dimensional and predictable.
Well, since I've had the "Notebook" on my wish list for some time now, I can take it off since I probably won't read another Sparks novel again. Meh.
Reconnecting. Kinship. Tragedy.
In one word--Life.
No I haven't. But the performance was outstanding. He really understood the voice of the narration, and was unafraid to go to the places that the story went.
This was a book that I personally wanted to savor. The story was rich and emotional, and even though it was a page turner, I wanted to take breaks to absorb the story that was being told to me. Every chapter, every event that was depicted I wanted to remember and experience and relate to. To me this book was meant to be experienced.
Yes. very good.
Nicholas Sparks. Had a very interesting family.
When his brother rejected him.
I had reservations about this being as good as his novels but was very please that I listened to it. My husband loved it too.
The best book by Nicholas Sparks ever! Very moving and real.
I really enjoyed this book as it gave an insight into the author, Nicholas Sparks, that I did not know previously. It sheds light on why he wrote some of his fictional books that I have read. I had to pay close attention to the storyline to realize when he was shifting from his current adventures and reflecting on his past life with his family of origin.
As much as I love the characters Sparks introduces in each novel, the real-life inspirations have shown equal intensity. I so enjoyed listening to the parallels in the author's life to the story lines he developed. Seeing where he was in his own life while he wrote has now given me more meaning in which to read/listen to his novels. He is a very well-rounded author and family man. As usual, I loved his stories.
