Publisher's Summary

Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life, including boating, swimming, and regular barbecues with his good-natured buddies, he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is, until Gabby Holland moves in next door.

Despite his attempts to be neighborly, the appealing redhead seems to have a chip on her shoulder about him...and the presence of her longtime boyfriend doesn't help. Despite himself, Travis can't stop trying to ingratiate himself with his new neighbor, and his persistent efforts lead them both to the doorstep of a journey that neither could have foreseen.

Spanning the eventful years of young love, marriage, and family, The Choice ultimately confronts us with the most heart-wrenching question of all: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?

    Story
    "Don't see the movie first"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not so much for me. It was a let down after watching the movie first. Travis' father in the movie was a great character altogether missing in the book. The banter by Travis was pretty good but I thought Gabby's fell short


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Travis by far.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Holter Graham?

    Yes But for this book, a woman should have narrated Gabby's character. But Holter probably did as well as any man could have


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    More of a struggle getting together.


    Any additional comments?

    Again, I would not recommend this for anyone who has already seen the movie. It's usually the other way around but I thought the director took the book and made it better.

    "Cheesy"

    Narration was very good, but I expected more from a Nicholas Sparks book. Too predictable.

    Story
    "Not My Favorite Sparks Book"
    What did you like best about The Choice? What did you like least?

    I mean, it was a love story so that's what I liked best. BUT, I felt like the story line was choppy. Also, it unfolded over an unbelievably short amount of time. Then, the skipping of years was super confusing. This is kind of like "The Notebook" gone bad.


    What could Nicholas Sparks have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make the story less predictable, add more depth and time to the story line.

    "a little disappointed...."

    I enjoyed the book immensely but feel it ended rather abruptly. The ending wasn't believable...don't want to leave a spoiler but what happened at the end isn't possible in the manner it occurred.

    "Music?"

    This book was absolutely amazing!
    The only issue I had was that on some of the chapters the started it off with music and ended some of them with music .... After the first chapter I was side tracked by it, kinda thrown off. I didn't like the music to start more than the beginning of the book or to end the book..

    Story
    "This was cute, funny and Sad, but so good!"

    I really liked this book. Love Holter Graham's narration. He is awesome and grabs you into the story so much more.
    The story is about Travis and Gabby and how they meet. It is such a funny beginning and NS writes this in such a fun and cute way. The first 3/4 of the book is great fun and uplifting.
    Then tragedy happens and the last quarter of the book is really tough to get through. It grabs your heart and soul about "The Choice" Travis has to make. Well Done Nicholas Sparks!! 5 stars and worth a credit since his books don't go on sale. :-(
