My first thought before I read it was that sequels are never as good as the first. But I was wrong in this case!! I enjoyed this book just as much as the first!! It was romantic and just a "make you feel good" book! I love it and it's one of my favorites by Sparks!
This was the first book I read by Nicholas Sparks after seeing (and loving) the movie version of the Notebook. I've been hooked on his books ever since and don't think you can ever go wrong picking one up. I loved the chance this book gave to see what the results were of the beautiful love story in the Notebook in addition to its own moving story. I gave my mom a copy to read and would recommend this to any of my friends.
"The Wedding" is one of the best of Nicolas Sparks many novels. Not really a sequel to "The Notebook"; it definitely provides some clues to what happened to Allie and Noah. "The Wedding" is about Noah and Allie's daughter Jane and her husband Wilson and family as they prepare for a wedding. A touching story of love rekindled, after thirty years of marriage.
I feel like Nicholas Sparks books are either a big hit or a big miss with me, either highly predictable and a monotonous sort of way or just heart-wrenchingly touching. I was thrilled that The Wedding falls into the later category. I got so choked up and actually cried at this stories climax. The only other book that made me shed actual tears was another Nicholas Sparks' book A Walk to Remember, a book that is infinitely better than it's motion picture adaptation. All in all, I'm glad that I read this book and highly recommend it to anyone else who's in the mood to feel sentimental.
