©1996 Nicholas Sparks; (P)2004 Time Warner Audiobooks
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 ...
Don't waist your time and watch the movie, it's the first book that I see that is not as good as the movie...
My first Nicholas Sparks and it was fantastic. The love story was touching and romantic without being gushy. You rarely see or hear of true love like described in this book. It was very refreshing.
I saw the movie but I will always think the book, and now listening to the audio is so much better. I cried as hard, even harder, I felt the pain and felt the joy. Nicholas Sparks is an amazing man who has managed to capture all the emotions of the heart. I truly love him as an author..and he is probably my favorite. I would highly recommend this audio.
I saw the movie and absolutely loved it. Listening to this book was a task, as it was difficult for me to get past parts of the narration. Barry Bostwick, sounds perfect as the voice of an older Noah but fails miserably as the voice of a young Allie. Hearing him change his voice to a higher pitch to befit that of a young woman was awful. Worse yet, was listening to him describe the love scenes -- he sounds like a creepy, perverted old man (leaving me to feel icky all over). I had to literally force myself to finish listening to the beautiful story, all the while pushing the recollection of his creepy narration out of my mind.
I read the book, listened to book and saw the movie. My favorite so far is the audio-version. Highly recommended. Much better than the rescue which I find a little far-fetched and overly gooey.
