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?

"A tender and moving love story...Sparks' latest does not disappoint." (Publishers Weekly)
Didn't read print version.
This is not my usual sort of book, so I can't really compare it to others I've read.
He has a very engaging voice. A little bit of accent and a nice mellow flow of speaking.
I think Gabby. She has a deep down earthiness that I liked.
I watched the Notebook and cried my eyes out ( I have no idea why this is a good thing). I thought I'd try more of Nicholas Sparks work and since I listen to a lot of books, this was the way to go. Again, I cried through parts of it, not knowing for sure how it would end. Glad I wasn't listening at work :) I really enjoyed all of this book and went back and bought four more of his books. Well worth the credit.
Yes, I said it!
The BEST was the love story and the Worst was how the love story started.
Of Course I LOVE Nicholas
The boat scene was my absolute favorite part.
uhmmmmmm well....to stop looking for love because it will find you.
Romantic, hopeful, funny
The man that Travis was. He never gave up on Gabby.
When Travis went and assisted in Gabby's physical therapy for the first time in the book. I loved how it was described.
Great performance. Very happy with the ending. Good and easy.
The characters, the narrator, this beautiful story.
The story moved me to tears. Such a sweet love story, and love stories aren't really my thing, In fact I had purchased this several months ago started it and blew it off. Figured I wouldn't like it. I scanned my library and remembered this. What a sweet surprise. The characters are people you can relate to. Just very simple, everyday people. And an actual love story that is believable.
I am not sure. But I loved his performance in this. He has a beautiful voice. One you don't get tired of hearing.
Yes. When you have felt that sort of love in your life you understand what this poor man was going through. I loved him for loving her the way that he did.
I would recommend this to any one. Even hard nosed mystery buffs like me. Its nice sometimes to enjoy the beauty in life sometimes, not all the suspense.
Busy working mom, very little to no free time. Enjoys escaping from reality with light hearted and humorous stories. Books movies & audios.
Yes... A great story, the narrator was excellent. Can hardly wait to see if they make a movie to see if how I imagine people are how 'Hollywood' would imagine people.
Excellent. Perfect voice tones for the story.
I had to tell my husband all about this one. I will remember this story for a very long time. Very emotional and makes a person take the uncertainty of life a little more seriously. I highly recommend this listen.
This is not one of Sparks best stories in my opinion. It was mostly predictable and slow moving. However, the narrator made it nearly unbearable for me with his "southern" accents. He read it too slowly and I didn't like the narrator's choice of voices for the main characters.
I read this book over a year ago and for the life of me I can't remember how it ended. Goes to Show how much of an effect it had on me. Big fan of Nicholas Sparks and buy all his books. But I felt this book was a little too slow moving for me, I wasn't particularly as fond of the characters as I am other Sparks characters. If you like Sparks- I would give it a chance. A mediocre Sparks book is better than not having any Sparks book at all.
While I agree with the previous comment that this book felt a bit like emotional extortion (especially towards the end) I did very much enjoy it. At times I have tuned out listening to other audiobooks. That did not happen once with this one. I am a big Nicholas Sparks fan and this one was among my favorite. The narrator is excellent as well - I will definitely be looking for him again.
I love this book!! It was sweet and very endearing. The story line was great and kept me guessing the whole book. You get so caught up in the story of how Travis and Gabby start out you forget that Travis is only remembering what has happened. The ending is by far one of my favorites. I cried my eyes out for joy and sadness. I have to say this is one of my favorites and I am really hard to please with his books. I feel this one was a fresh alternative to his other stories. I loved it!!
