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)
I just finished listening to this book. I feel like I am comparing every book I listen to now to The Notebook. Now that was a TRUE love story. This book over all was just OK. The beginning was a drag and I didn't think I could ever get past the ramblings about the dogs. Then it got pretty good towards the middle and the ending was just too good to be true. I guess maybe I am just cynical but "happy endings" like that rarely happen. When is someone going to write a book where the main character dies or the love of their life falls in love with someone else? It's like listening to a Disney story. "Boy meets girl and they live happily ever after"
Pretty good listen...Holter Graham is very easy to listen to and I credit him for the reason I actually enjoyed this book. It is very cheesy as pointed out by another reviewer, but still a light and easy listen
The book had a very moving ending but I was not impressed with the love story between Travis and Gabby. It seemed a little cheesy as another reviewer pointed out. However I do think the book was well written and I personally loved the narrator's voice which made it a easy listen.
Maybe I'm just getting sentimental as I get older, but the story of how Travers met Gabi brought back memories of my own which moved me to tears more than once. But be warned it is a sad story, well told with much feeling. Fairly well read but I have heard other readers who are better at character voicing.
Overall, I would give it 10 stars if not for the voicing of the narrator. I wish he didn't have to mimick a female voice or of a little child and deliberately try to sound like one at all since he is a male reader. It sounds rather comical when the dialogues are serious. It should have been read without delibate reference to a character's gender.
