The Best of Me is one of those books that almost anyone would enjoy. It reminds us of lost youth, lost love and our life in general. The book takes the love of two teens who are separated by circumstances and shows what happens when they meet many years later and with so many hard life experiences behind both of them. It makes us look within to see where we are in life, our regrets and shows how very short and unexpected life can be. Nicholas Sparks is a master at writing about love and life and this book is thoroughly enjoyable. It’s not one of his best books, but well worth the read. And when reading, especially the last third of the book, be sure and have tissues handy. They will definitely be needed.

I love how the story goes and had a lot of twist and turns. I love the best when they saw each other after 21 years to be exact and do all the same thing again.
When Amanda and Dowson saw each other again at Tuck's place.
Yes absolutely, It's like you're dying to know what's gonna happens next.
Not a typical book by this author. This was a sad story that had quite a bit of violence and even a bit of supernatural elements. Each character was more depressing than the next. No one to really root for or get involved with. It was a descent story, but not your typical page turning love story from Nicholas Sparks.
the ending was disappointing on many levels
I dont want to give anything away but it was waaaay over the
top as far as believability
I really really did not like his narration/voice when doing the
female voice (Amanda) I would always be imagining some
really dumb tall manish women with a strange southern accent
because of the voice he did for her. AWFUL
The book was entertaining but
I was pretty disappointed and actually surprised
that the book suddenly ended, thats it ?? I thought
Way too far fetched, not much of a story
The best parts of the story were when Amanda and
Dawson are together and thats actually NOT a very big part of the book
It's close to the top.
the reunion, you will understand when you listen
The scattering of the ashes
The Gift of Love
Sparks writes stories with a lot of human emotions. Love, tragedy, the things we all deal with in life.
It was a bittersweet ending.
Jaw dropping! Made my heart ache a little.
The story would start to get a little slow and boring. And the narrator made it worse because he was a bit monotone. BUT still a good audio, no doubt!
YES! I know I will cry!
I was recommended this book. And this book has taken me the longest to finish thus far. It's a bit slow in the beginning but the story starts to kick back up again.
I am a huge Nicholas Sparks fan, and love all of his books. This one was no exception. I could not put it down, what a wonderful, touching, and amazing story. You will not be disappointed.
This is the first book I have read from Nicholas Sparks. WOW was I unimpressed. I could predict the plot for the ENTIRE book. It was painfully predictable. I couldn't sympathize with any of the characters, because they were just so pathetic. I would go along listeniung to the narration and think it wasn't bad then boom... I would get struck with the narrator trying to talk like a Southern woman and doing a really poor job of it. If you like this author I imagine all of his stuff is probably about the same.. and I did finish the book.... which says something... but I won't be reading anything else by this author.
