I loved that the story was realistic, and that it wasn't full of sex.
I don't usually read love stories -- I'm not sure.
He did OK.
Thibault -- I loved his gentle and patient personality.
i already have. it is a great story and i love it !
Logan Thibault(hope i spelled that right) i was really taken with his personality. he's just a all around good guy.
It is at the top of my list. I love John Bedford Lloyd. He is a wonderful reader, he speaks clearly and at the perfect pace.
It 100% made me cry. I never saw the end coming.
Everyone should read it before seeing the movie. The book is 100 times better.
Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
another lovely story from Nicholas Sparks. He really has a gift for making you fall in love with the characters and this story was true Nicholas Sparks. The narrator was a bit annoying, i truly hope women don't speak or sound that way. Over all i enjoyed listening to this book.
Better than Movie!!
How a soldier followed his heart that lead him to the love of his life.
My first audible, so it took a bit of adjusting. I'm not sure I like a man making his voice sound like a woman's, but he did a pretty good job.
Logan. He had such a strong, patient, presence that couldn't be ignored. I loved his relationship with his dog, Zeus, showing his soft side.
I just could not listen to the whole book, I did fast forward so I would hear the ending.
Just did not hold my interest, and I do enjoy a good romance.
I did the audiobook first before watching the movie, and let me just say, BOOK or AUDIO BOOK WAY BETTER!! I was disappointed at the movie. There was no chemistry there in the movie than the book. I felt the chemistry and the love in the audion book. thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!!
I would recommend and I have recommended this to friends. It was a good story.
I liked Victor. He really brought Victor alive.
The ending was very sad.
Nana was my favorite character. She was funny and witty. I liked Victor and Logan's friendship a lot. Overall it was a good book.
As usual, Sparks gives us great character development and an interesting story line. Up to a point, it's easy to buy into his premise, even though it's a bit far fetched. But why not? Why wouldn't an ex soldier weary of battle traumas walk across the country to heal and to find someone who has become a touchstone to him? Without giving away the story line, I'll just say that I was with him until the main character suddenly did something so out of character that I turned it off in disappointment, thinking "I just can't believe this story any longer." After finishing the book, I still couldn't decide why that particular incident was included.
The ending which was telegraphed did turn at the end and it was overall a satisfying story with very attractive characters. The boy, the dog, and the grandmother were especially well done and fun to watch. Sparks knows how to give his characters depth and human interest, which is why I keep going back to him.
The character development, especially of the minor characters, which were as fully drawn as the two lead characters. Even the town played a character role and was well done.
The reader's "female voice" and "child's voice" were really terrible and I never could accept his reading of the characters. He made the female character sound weak and insipid. I think it would have been better to simply read without trying to sound female, and leave it to the listener to provide her "voice". I found myself second guessing him throughout and thinking of how it should have sounded. It's not necessary for the reader to "act" in order to get the character across, and in this case, it was the only really jarring element in an otherwise well done production.
I can recommend this, but with the caveat that you'll have to put up with an annoying voice.
Logan should be a hero to everyone who reads this. Just the kind of guy every girl dreams about. (especially when you've seen Zach Effron in the previews for the movie)
Great love story. I loved all the characters! I probably looked real dumb sitting around giggling to myself at certain parts. The narrator took a minute to get used to but overall i think he did well.
