"The wistful, reflective tone of Sparks' newest love story shines through in Wopat's competent telling." (Publishers Weekly)
This is Sparks at his best. But then we are in that age group. However, our 12 year old son enjoyed it too.
We did listen to "The Notebook" first, and then followed it with this one the next weekend.
If you enjoy clean romancess, keep a box of tissues handy and listen to both.
While I found the language in this book appealing, the story just didn't appeal to me. This is the second of Nickolas Sparks book I have heard, the first being the Notebook, which was abridged. I have to wonder if I would have liked this book more if it had been abridged since I feel I waisted a great deal of time listening to detail that seemed to be written just to pad the book.
I didn't find myself caring enough about anyone to wonder what would happen to them next since I was pretty sure that nothing much would.
The 180 turnaround to Prince Charming was contrived and unbelievable.
Fortunately I love being read to and Tom Wopat seems a skilled reader so I persisted to the end and then wondered why I bothered.
I usually enjoy the simplicity of Nicholas Sparks'books. But this one disappointed me. It didn't stir up much emotion and was terribly predictable--even the ending.
I was very disappointed in this book. I didn't think it was romantic and I didn't like any of the characters (except Noah) this time either, though I enjoyed The Notebook. I especially found irritating the author's attempt to fool the reader--which I wish I had avoided by not listening to the whole book.
