i loved this one!! The last 2 or 3 by Sparks have been a bit of a disappointment to me, so I was a bit hesitant to get into this one. BUT it was worth it! It was very entertaining and got me from page one. I was curious as to the choice which doesn't come into play until a good 3/4 of the way in. But still, the book was a rare treat finally!! YEAH!
I'm a huge Nicholas Sparks fan and I have loved all of his books. However, I must say that I thought this one was especially well written and not predictable. I couldn't put it down and finished it in one day!
Nicholas Sparks never ceases to amaze me with his writing talents - he's a man for crying out loud and the stories that he puts on paper are as if he's an overly compassionate woman. I don't mean to sound sexist but not many men can write the way he does and with such compassion and conviction. What an AWESOME book this was - I thought I had the ending figured out, oh no - he totally had it changed than what I figured it out to be. Great book!
This excellent book by Nicholas Sparks asks the question, how far will you go for love? I loved the story of Travis Parker and Gabby Holland falling in love. The Choice at the end of the story will surpise you. This book definitely made me feel good!
