Nicholas Sparks wrote this bittersweet story and made a point. "In a marriage there's only place for two people"
Very worth reading.
Another wonderful book by Nicholas Sparks. I hated the ending and wished it were different. His book left me feeling empty.
The movie missed the mark. It left me bored and frustrated. The characters seemed shallow. I did not plan to purchase this book but the free prologue and first chapter made me curious. The book is richer, the characters so much more. I am glad I purchased this book. I would have missed this loving, conflicted, interesting story.
This story was totally different from what I thought. Much more interesting!! Plus, it is very well narrated. It becomes so intriguing in the last half part of the story that I can't stop listening to it!
The story was interesting and it's a good time killer. The problem I have with Nicholas Sparks' books is that the characters are generally shallow and the storytelling is very trite. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants something easy to listen to and mildly entertaining, but don't expect anything incredible. If the characters had been more believable or endearing, I probably would have started sobbing at points but instead, I ended with a shrug and thought it was "just okay." I have a feeling that, like my experience with "The Notebook," the movie will be more entertaining and moving than the book.
I really liked this book. Being from eastern NC and having had my own summer romance with a serviceman, this book really spoke to me. I really liked "John" and thought the twists in this book to be very true to how real life plays out.
This book was very good. Poignant, intriguing and illuminating. The narrator for the most part was good, but his female voices need some work.
