A friend and I wanted to listen to a romantic story which we would then discuss. We picked this as the author has been successful and it's set at a Carolina beach. However, we were both disappointed - although that in itself gave us plenty to discuss. I listened to it at 2X speed on my iPhone so that I could get through it quickly.
I loved the twist that was added to the story, when I thought I knew what the choice would be, it changed.
Have not read the print version
but the audio version was great. My wife and I like to listen to one of his books when on a long trip and the miles just melt away.
You never know what to expect next.......there is always an unusual twist.
This book will make you laugh and cry and laugh
I can't compare as I have not read the print version
I have listened to a few of Nicholas Sparks', typically after something a bit more serious and hard hitting. His stores are a bit predicable and I have come to realize each has a twist that is unexpected. I do enjoy his work but find them similar...The Notebook , Dear John, The Choice etc. but when looking of this type of store Sparks does it very well.
I am very particular about my narrator's . A bad one will make me stop listening to a book. Graham is an enjoyable narrator and fits the story type. A good combination writer/narrator.
I liked the twist, unexpected.
I look forward to more Spark's novels
Didn't read print version.
This is not my usual sort of book, so I can't really compare it to others I've read.
He has a very engaging voice. A little bit of accent and a nice mellow flow of speaking.
I think Gabby. She has a deep down earthiness that I liked.
I watched the Notebook and cried my eyes out ( I have no idea why this is a good thing). I thought I'd try more of Nicholas Sparks work and since I listen to a lot of books, this was the way to go. Again, I cried through parts of it, not knowing for sure how it would end. Glad I wasn't listening at work :) I really enjoyed all of this book and went back and bought four more of his books. Well worth the credit.
Yes, I said it!
The BEST was the love story and the Worst was how the love story started.
Of Course I LOVE Nicholas
The boat scene was my absolute favorite part.
uhmmmmmm well....to stop looking for love because it will find you.
Romantic, hopeful, funny
The man that Travis was. He never gave up on Gabby.
When Travis went and assisted in Gabby's physical therapy for the first time in the book. I loved how it was described.
Great performance. Very happy with the ending. Good and easy.
The characters, the narrator, this beautiful story.
The story moved me to tears. Such a sweet love story, and love stories aren't really my thing, In fact I had purchased this several months ago started it and blew it off. Figured I wouldn't like it. I scanned my library and remembered this. What a sweet surprise. The characters are people you can relate to. Just very simple, everyday people. And an actual love story that is believable.
I am not sure. But I loved his performance in this. He has a beautiful voice. One you don't get tired of hearing.
Yes. When you have felt that sort of love in your life you understand what this poor man was going through. I loved him for loving her the way that he did.
I would recommend this to any one. Even hard nosed mystery buffs like me. Its nice sometimes to enjoy the beauty in life sometimes, not all the suspense.
Busy working mom, very little to no free time. Enjoys escaping from reality with light hearted and humorous stories. Books movies & audios.
Yes... A great story, the narrator was excellent. Can hardly wait to see if they make a movie to see if how I imagine people are how 'Hollywood' would imagine people.
Excellent. Perfect voice tones for the story.
I had to tell my husband all about this one. I will remember this story for a very long time. Very emotional and makes a person take the uncertainty of life a little more seriously. I highly recommend this listen.
