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.
listened to it more than once, hoping I'd get more out of it, but the storyline isn't for me. Don't think I will purchase more from the author.
Would not recommend this book it was very slow and predictable. Nicholas Sparks is usually great but not this time.
Listen on people!
Could not get past the fact that with the Narrator's voice for the Heroine, sounded just like Dustin Hoffman's voice in the movie Tootsie!
With that being said, I liked it "ok".
This was a really good, sweet read. Nicholas Sparks always makes me happy when reading his books and this one was no exception. Way to go once again!
Narrator did a great job, not impressed with the story.
Maybe. I loved the Notebook, but this book had a flimsy plot and the writing seemed amateurish. I expect that from a first-time author, but not Sparks.
