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?

    "dull and predictable plot"

    narrator's southern accent disappeared somewhe somewhere in the middle of the book. story goes so slow. inaccurate or implausible portrayal of someone coming out of an extended and deep coma from a tbi. I know how it is ...my daughter and other patients suffers from it and it does not end in a fairy tale. fiction, after all. not investing in Nicholas Sparks again.

    "Wanted to love"

    I really wanted to love this book but at least as likes it. It was mildly predictable that was frustrating.

    "Movie was much better"

    The book was repetitive and a little annoying at times. The second part was just boring. I think I will stick with the movie. I think it was much better.

    "Wonderful"

    It was a beautiful love story. Story of true love -- illness was difficult to listen to, but reemphasized how much they loved each other.

    "Tears"

    First of all I have never read a book by Nicholas Sparks that I did not enjoy and love, some I have read more than twice...his storied take me away from the present. The narrator's voice was perfect for the fabulous story, one I won't forget. The feelings he made come to life! You will enjoy, for that I am sure.

    "Cheesy Music"

    I could have done without the cheesy elevator music, but otherwise, I really enjoyed the audio version.
