    "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!

    "Entertaining and insightful ..."

    My first Sparks novel. Couldn't put it down. Wonderful use of changing POV. External and internal dialogue flows swiftly like the swollen creek at the story's climax. Loved Keith Clayton's character.

    "Another winner..."

    I download books so I have something to listen to when I walk on the treadmill every morning, I couldn't wait to get exercising with this book and didn't want my time to be up! Nicolas Sparks is one of my favorite authors.

    "Not so good"

    This wasn't a "typical" story from Nicolas Sparks. I really disliked the end. He could have done so much more with this book. The narrator is hard to listen to--Guess I didn't like it!

    "Sparks"

    Story is not as good as most Sparks "romance" novels because I didn't ever feel the emotion of any character. I think the reader is a bit weak. I would still recommend the novel.

    "Not a Classic"

    The Victorians, Jane Austen and Anthony Trollup made much of the untold truth. The main charactor who can't seem say something that would prevent all kind of bad things happening until the end when right prevails.

    This corny book uses the same device to little avail. The untold truth must be augmented at the end.

    "Not family friendly"

    The storyline was interesting, but I was disappointed with the sexual material in the book.

    "Wonderful read"

    THIS BOOK TOUCHED MY HEART, ESPECIALLY SINCE MY FATHER PASSED 4 WEEKS AFTER I HAD HIS FIRST GRANDCHILD. IT MAKES YOU REMEMBER LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO BE ANGRY ALL THE TIME. AND ALSO TO MAKE SURE YOU KEEP YOU FAMILY MEMBERS CLOSE TO YOUR HEART AND TREAT THEM WELL BECAUSE IN THE END THEY WILL ALWAYS BE THERE AND YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THEM WILL BE ALL THAT MATTERS. HAVE NO REGRETS!
