I've listened to all of Nicholas Sparks' books. And they can be a bit sappy, and hapily ever after and that is ok. But this one dragged on forEVER. So many details we didn't need to hear, especially when the character switched to the "villian" husband. It's as if Mr Sparks ran out of things to write, but needed to fill the pages for some reason. He would have done better to write "very, very, very," over and over, rather than the lunatic rantings that we had to endure.
The narrator was ok thru most of it, but she often mixed her accents and had the North Carolina people talking with the Dorchester, MA accents. Also her inflections with the character Jo were so over the top emotional, that is was comical and I had to adjust my volume. The opposite for Katie, the main character. She was flat. Boring and I couldn't understand why ANYONE would have fallen in love with her, much less FIGHT over her. And the "twist" at the end was really silly...really.
Anyhoo. It entertained me slightly on a long flight and I finished it, so I'll give it 3 stars.
