This is one of the nicest stories that I have ever heard or read. The fact that the author read it made the story more enjoyable. He has a very pleasant, soothing voice. Usually biblical references in books are awkward for me. I am not of the same religious faith, nor am I religious at all. This story touched me in a way that very many others have not. It is not a demanding story on the listener/reader, but causes you to examine the way things happen and why.
I was a little scepticle about getting this book thinking it might be just a boring love story and drag out. Someone told me that it was good, so I decided to give it a shot and as it turns out it was one of the best books I've read (or heard). Great story about the human spirit and how things in life can change you forever. Get this one!!
I thought it was a great story. I really enjoyed the narrating. It wasn't a professional narrator, but it really sounded like a man telling the story of his first and only love.
I don't normally read these love story types of novels... however this was the exception. I got the novel for my wife to listen to and so I kind of previewed it (how does one preview an audio book?). I got hooked, it was one of the best books I have read (heard) in quite a while, and I read a lot of books. Exceptional love story told very well by the author himself. A must have for your collection.
I already knew the book and it's amazing, a wonderful history.
The narration is very well done and put the listner into the book.
I strongly recommend it.
Sparks did an incredible job with this book. Through out the story, he paints a beautiful picture of love, loss, and innocence while showing us two people's happiness, heart aik, and their knoledge of God's love. I cried during this book; I couldn't
put it down.
I laughed, cried and was not ready for the book to end. Nicholas Sparks has another winner of a book. He never fails to make me think about his writings long after I have read the book.
This is an excellent story. There is a version out there, that I checked out of my local library, that is narrated by Frank Muller. The audio is much better with his narration.
This has been my favorite so far!
OMG...the entire story was memorable for me. I was so emotional while listening that I had a box of tissues and even had to pause it at times to dry my tears...and I was at work at the time!!!
Yes, I also listen to Safe Haven which is also one of my favorites!
There are so many quotes throughout this book that moved me...
I would HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone.
The story itself was amazing itself, Nicholas Sparks gave it a special meaning.

Yes! I wasn't able to listen to it all at once but I didn't want to stop listening once I started.
Great book! Really recommend
The book is brilliant and there is no denying that Nicholas Sparks is an amazing author, I dont know a single one of his books that I have not fallen in love with, HOWEVER. his voice when reading the audio book I can certainly do without, if anything his voice put me off listening
"I'm going to utter the words I thought I never would"
The film was so much better than the book. The film worked on a melodramatic level - the book was just plain sappy and made me slightly nauseous ... It was just a little too formulaic and you could see the twist a mile off ...
"Absolutely loved this book."
fantastic narrator. fell in love with the characters straight away.
very memorable story. makes you realise life is too short to have regrets
"Nicholas Sparks does it again"
Another master piece. So well written and using Audible brings each word to life. I felt I was right there on the porch.
