    "My Favorite Nicholas Sparks book yet"

    This is a great book, you cheer Logan on through the entire story be cause you can't help but fall in love with his character. Thank you for a wonderful read/listen Nicholas Sparks, your best book yet. Can't wait to see what Zac Effron does with the character in the movie.

    "nice, sweet"

    Like the Notebook, this is a sweet love story. I usually don't read romance (and this would qualify as such). It's very soft and fluffy, if you are looking for that sort of thing. Nicolas Sparks is a good writer. It's just that I am a bit more pro-active when it comes to love.

    "Very enjoyable"

    I enjoyed this book, enjoyed the narrator. Thank you Mr. Sparks for the ending...some of your books make me want to scream at the ending. This is interesting all the way through. I want a sequel to Dear JOhn...I cannot accept the ending. This book is a good read.

    "Typical"

    ...but still a good book. I am giving the opening of the story a 4, but it does not end well, so I will give that a 3.

    "Ok but not his best"

    This one attracted me since it was about a soldier. I am a military spouse and the other book Sparks wrote about a soldier was really good. I have read most of his books. This one and the one he released before it were just kind of so so. The story line was a little out there. It was nice to read but not one to keep on my shelf for the future.

    "skip it and read one of his other novels"

    I'm a big Nicholas Sparks fan. He wrote some of my favorite books however this one was disappointing. The love story was a stretch and unbelievable. It reads like a lifetime television movie. not impressed. I'd recommend other Nicholas sparks novels but not this one.

    "The Lucky One"

    Not as good as his other novels. It was too predictable, but was an okay listen if you had no other good book to listen to--I just expected more from him. Maybe he is running out of steam.

    "A Superb Work from a Superb Author"

    I love Nicholas Sparks and again he did not disappoint. The characters truly came to life for me, and the only bad thing is that I began to miss them immediately upon completion of the book. I trust that Sparks will continue to leave me wanting more in the future!
