    Story
    (309)

    At 31, Noah Calhoun, back in coastal North Carolina after World War II, is haunted by images of the girl he lost more than a decade earlier. At 29, socialite Allie Nelson is about to marry a wealthy lawyer, but she cannot stop thinking about the boy who long ago stole her heart. Thus begins the story of a love so enduring and deep it can turn tragedy into triumph, and may even have the power to create a miracle.

    Shelly says: "Need tissues for this one"
    "Too sappy...even for a woman"
    Overall

    As a typical female, I usually enjoy love stories. Although this book make me cry because of it's sappy story, it went on for too long, especially towards the end when you feel like the author got the story out and you start wondering why does the book keep on going. There isn't much happening in the book, mainly conversation and reminiscing and since I only listen to audio books in my car, it's not the kind of book that makes time (or traffic) go faster.

    One evening in 1951, an itinerant storyteller arrives unannounced at a house in the Irish countryside. In exchange for a bed and a warm meal, he invites his hosts and their neighbors to join him by the wintry fireside, and begins to tell formative stories of Ireland's history. Ronan, a 9-year-old boy, grows so entranced by the storytelling that, when the old man leaves abruptly under mysterious circumstances, the boy devotes himself to finding him again.

    S. Marie says: "A wonderfully read history of Ireland"
    "Too much of a fairy tale"
    Overall

    This book sounded too much like a fairy tale. I was very much looking towards 20 hrs. of great audio to entertain me on the road but the pace of the book was so slow that I quit after investing over 10 hrs. hoping it'll get better.
