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 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.
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
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.
Not only was the narrator excellent, there were also many times when background music would start playing at appropriate times during the story. It really added to the experience, and it is something that I had always hoped I would find in an audiobook. I really enjoyed this quick listen.
Movie > Book. The movie was beautiful! And the book was... disappointing. I actually think the love story in the movie was more touching. I felt like Sparks wrote the book as more of a businessman than an author, capitalizing on what he calculated that people would buy but didn't really put much feeling into it. There was almost no depth to the love story! I believe that this book went viral because of clever marketing, not because of its own merit.
Imagine a decently written story by a fourteen year old boy, who's never actually been in love and that's pretty much what you're going to get out of this book. If Sparks has been in love, he's keeping it to himself.
I have been listening for an hour now and it is soo boring. My commute to work is painful enough w/o adding a boring narrator to the mix. I will give it another shot on my way home but I seriously hope this gets better soon.
It's a nice book from Nicholas Sparks, it has a very disgusting love scene that narrated is even worse. Without this part the book is very good and transmit a strong message. The author could have spared the reader from a useless sex description ...
