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)
While I did, in the end, enjoy this book at times it felt like the author was putting me through emotional extortion. He is tricky in his use of wording, so as to keep the reader constantly guessing where the end of the plot is going. He wrings every drop possible out of you and, at times it is annoying. The main part of the book is a very enjoyable love story. So, if you are up for an emotional roller coaster, go for it! The character development and setting are great. The narrator is very good. I'll look for him again in the future. Finally, I can't imagine anyone doing justice to this story in an abridged version. So, if you do listen to it, enjoy the long version.

The Choice is by far Nicholas Sparks' best book. I have listened to several, enjoying most. I was so into this book and the story, I couldn't believe it. Parts were a little dragged out but I realized I didn't mind since it prolonged the enjoyment of the book. If you like relationship books, it's a great listen. I highly recommend it. BTW, I've never taken the time to review any book before but this one was worth it.
I generally like all of Spark's books, but this one was a good light hearted one with a twist. It touches on the daily trials and tribulations and I think that people can relate. A good read - the narrator is excellent.
good story and held my attention until the end. I felt more should have been focused with the end rather to just quickly tie up loose ends with a few pages. The end was not as developed as well but none the less a good read.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
If you loved the Notebook then you will love this one too. It's a typical N. Sparks story. It dragged a little at the beginning but the ending was well worth the listen. Just be sure to have the tissues close by....
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.
This was a great listen I eagerly wanted to have an errand to run so I could listen to this audiobook and shed a tear and a sigh to this story and its very real believable characters. Nicholas Sparks has another success
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
Travis by far.
Yes But for this book, a woman should have narrated Gabby's character. But Holter probably did as well as any man could have
More of a struggle getting together.
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.
