©1996 Nicholas Sparks; (P)2004 Time Warner Audiobooks
I love Nicholas Sparks' books, but this is one of the rare occasions that the movie was actually better than the book. I don't think the book showed how their love developed and grew to help the reader become emotionally connected with the characters. Instead the summer they spent together was summed up in a paragraph.
I listened to this book because I thought that the movie was amazing. It is a great love story but to me it was too gushy. I love romance but this book did pour it on think. It was a little too much for me.
I have to say in my top five atleast!
I love this aughtor, this is the third book i've "read" now and I'm going to keep on listening to the rest he has written too. I hope they are as greate as this one. The thing I liked the best? That nicholas manages to create the "perfect guy" and bring him to life for all us hopless romantics hoping to find our prince charming!
I think he sounded like the noah i pictured in my head!
Its already a film, but it would be something like "world's best lovestory!"
Absolutely one of my favorites!
I can't imagine.
Nothing. The writing was so poor.
I like a well-written romance novel, but this one was tedious. I listened to the end, but wouldn't have continued reading it in text format.
I LOVE THIS STORY!!! I love the movie! I love everything about this book. I would recommend this book to anyone I know! No matter how many times I read this book or watch the movie, I still cry every single time.
I absolutely loved this book! I laughed and cried and didn't want it to end. It's one of the most romantic stories I've ever heard. I have already ordered the movie and can't wait to watch it.
The undying love and commitment.
Comparable, After all..... The pictures are in your mind!
The story itself.
No favorites - all performed well by Mr. Bostwick.
Yes, but could not dedicate the consecutive periods of time.
Great story that kept my attention 100% focus and concentrate.
The coincidence and power of love in the way that is described in the book
The intriging voice
When she went back looking for him no knowing exactly why
I have liked almost all of the books by Nicholas Sparks. This one was not disappointing.
Amazingly though, I LOVE the movie and connected totally with the story and the characters. The book is the same story; however, way too much talk, talk, talk in the story. I listened to the entire book, but was ready for it to be over. I have watched the movie over and over, and never tire of it.
I liked this book and the narrator was really good. But, the movie was better, and I wouldn't recommend this particular book. So sorry.
Have not read the print version.
Noah, he was so caring and never lost hope that during one of his visits, Allie would remember their life together.
