The Choice | [Nicholas Sparks]

The Choice

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.

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?

    "Long and drawn out"
    What disappointed you about The Choice?

    I love Nicholas Sparks. But I just felt scenes/situations was just drawn out to long. I could not get passed chapter 5/6 felt it was boring.


    Has The Choice turned you off from other books in this genre?

    made me leery


    Any additional comments?

    Cheesy monologue between individuals. Felt like I was dealing with teenagers.

    After listening to this fine performance I feel like I know Gabby and Travis. I wish I had a Travis of my own.

    Story
    "Not one of his best."

    It lacked that relationship development that Sparks is so good at. The end was anticlimactic. There was loud unnecessary music in the audio that drowned out the narrator.

    "True love"

    Once upon a time I had this true love in my life. The story brought personal memories back for me I loved this book. Everyone should know and feel this kind of love at least once in their life.

    "All over the place and shallow."

    The story was shallow, characters only somewhat loveable and not at all what you come to expect from sparks. Took me a bit to get through it.

    Story
    "A Real Life Love Story"
    What did you love best about The Choice?

    I loved the fact, that the book went back in time, then would go back in to the present to tell the story. The characters you find yourself immersed into immediately. The book keeps you both sad and happy all at the same time.


    What other book might you compare The Choice to and why?

    Best of me, similar concept sad and happy.


    What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice and reading of each character makes it seem as if your lost in their world.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, the choice that has to be made.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this audiobook, highly recommended.
