This is so far my least favorite N.S. Book. I have read almost all of them and I must say I could have done without this one. It was predictable and pretty boring. I would not recommend this book.
The story was good and the reader did a good job. But am I the only one who thinks the music interludes are random and distracting? Not Nicholas Sparks' best book, but it was entertaining. Especially hearing the male reader do a southern female accent!
I enjoyed listening to the book, but I purchased it because I just listened to The Longest Ride. That was such a wonderful book, that I thought I'd try another by the same author. I loved the story about Ira and Ruth, I was hoping to cry through this book as well. That didn't happen and I was a bit disappointed, that this book didn't make me as emotional. All in all it wasn't bad, and the story was cute.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. It is one that you can get lost in.
I lowered my rating because the music in the background 1: Was Too loud, 2: Didn't fit the mood of the storyline, and 3: Was definitely distracting.
I'm a 38 year old Army Wife. My favorite authors are N. Roberts, Feehan, L. K. Hamilton, J. Garwood, S. Kenyon and D. Koontz.
Not only was this a wonderfully unforgettable story but the narration was shockingly brilliant. I say shockingly due to rarely finding a narrator that can do a book justice. I will certainly be looking for more works by not only the author but the narrator as well.
This was an amazing story. I loved it. There were a lot of witty, funny remarks that made me laugh out loud. The narrator did a good job, but a man doing a female southern voice was slightly comical. I only gave it 3 stars on the performance because their were musical interludes that ran over the narration and it was distracting.
There is no doubt that Nicholas Sparks has a huge reader fan base, and has maintained it throughout his literary career. I have not been one of those fans.
In "True Believer," Sparks clearly steps out of his normal style that produces "awws" and tears, and writes a strong novel. The love story is still there, but the female protagonist is strong and independent, and has not had a life that could be a soap opera.
True Believer has a supernatural focus, and based on the audible reviews, I thought maybe it would work for me. I was surprised that it kept my attention..I didn't do much except sit on my butt and listen until I heard the "Audible hopes you have enjoyed this program."
"True Believer" gave me a glimpse of what those fans of Sparks already have seen, and I was glad for the experience.
