Publisher's Summary

Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job; loyal friends; his dream home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life, he believes that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is until Gabby Holland moves in next door. Despite Travis's attempts to be friendly, she seems to have a chip on her shoulder about him. But something compels Travis to get to know his new neighbour. His persistent efforts lead them both to make tough decisions, the consequences of which neither could have foreseen.

The Choice confronts us with that most heart-wrenching question of all: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?

I absolutely loved listening to this book.<br /><br />

Nicholas Sparks is a master storyteller who can take you on an emotional rollercoaster through his beautiful writing. I love the fact that his stories are largely unpredictable! The narrator's tone was smooth and relaxing.

I would listen for the performance alone

What did you like best about The Choice? What did you like least?

If you ever listened or read Nicholas Sparks' books, you know what you are getting to. It is the kind of reading if you want to relax and enjoy a good romance. However, and I noticed this in most of his books, the stories start very well and in the middle you start to lose interest. It was the same with The Choice.

Has The Choice put you off other books in this genre?

Never. I love reading romance. It is my favourite genre, but it may have put me off reading Nicolas Sparks. The reason is that all books from him that I read, I lose interest and want to stop reading. I have to make a great effort to keep going.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I loved the beginning of the book, the parts where romantic characters are getting to know each other.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

I would watch it on TV, but I wouldn't pay for it.

Any additional comments?

The greatest part of this audiobook is the narration. The narrator is amazing. If it wasn't for his performance , I would have probably stopped reading.

great story just a little slow to get started

Would you try another book written by Nicholas Sparks or narrated by Holter Graham?

yes to both, love Nicholas Sparks books and the narrator was easy to listen to

If you’ve listened to books by Nicholas Sparks before, how does this one compare?

Slower than I expected from previous books

Was The Choice worth the listening time?

Yes and no, seemed very long at time due to slow nature of story but some parts were very good

To cry for....

What can I say about this book than.... I fall in love with Nicholas sparks histories every time I read them, I'm such a romantic girl and his books never seem to disappoint me, with the audiobook it only took me 2 days to finish the book, love it and recommend it to anyone who wants to fall in love.

Loved it!

Again anther great book! A roller coaster of emotions. It gave me some thinking to do, what would I do? I liked the characters and this story could happen to any of us. Highly recommend reading/listening to this book.

True to Nicholas Sparkes' style of writing

Would you listen to The Choice again? Why?

Yes, if because there is always something that resonates in some way (which is true of any of Nicholas Sparkes books). This one made my heart smile, laugh, cry, sob, and feel so many emotions all in one. Its one i would listen to again but i couldn't do it too often. I could easily have continues reading/listening to it if it had carried on. How does Nicholas touch my heart in so many ways in one story!

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I wanted to put the book down because i could not bare it, but I also wanted to read as fast as I could in case the ending was different to what u expected, then it threw me because it twisted into another direction...

Which scene did you most enjoy?

My favourite part was the weekend with friends, the slow fall into friendship with everyone, I felt i was there somewhere not just reading/listening to it.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

because your worth it

Any additional comments?

Have your tissues ready, but do read it, its definitely worth it!!!

ugh! !!

Worst book I've laboured through in years. Boy meets girl and then nothing. No plot, no story. Just sickly sweet dialogue.

Spoiler alert!!!

Woman bangs her head and recovers. The end. Dreadful. I cannot advise against wasting a credit on this enough.

Ruined by ridiculous music!

It's a nice enough story. It has this music that appears for no reason at random points, completely ruins the book

musical interludes add to drama

The production on this book was excellent with musical interludes adding to the drama. I found this lovely easy listen and would recommend to anyone who likes a good love story.
