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.

One of the finest I've ever read. Sparks writes of people that are real and could be next door neighbors. By the time I finished this I was in tears...the good kind! It's a treasure and worth the read.

One of my summer reads last year. Nicholas Sparks is a great storyteller, and his books never disappoint for a quick, easy read. This one is about a couple that has fallen out of, after raising a family, a husband that was a workaholic, and how he vows to give his wife the love she needs and deserves. It is a very sweet story.

This is probably one of the best books I have read in a very long time. Very thought provoking in addressing the relationship of a man and woman AFTER the children are gone and its just the two of you again. Beautifully written, a surprise ending which makes you just smile!!!

I didn't realize The Notebook continued. This is a story about the adult life and family of one of their children. It took place later in Noah's life but told through the eyes of one of his son-in-laws. I enjoyed it so much and found myself in tears once again with one of Nicholas Sparks' books.

Classic Nicholas Sparks, all about love and self discovery and family. If you loved the Notebook, this is a great follow-on, as it carries out the same characters through different parts of their lives and descendants.

"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 really enjoyed this book. It was a slightly different style than the usual Sparks book. I found myself drawn towards the characters and very pleased with the developments in the story. A true romance, not unlike life, with many an unexpected twist. A must read for any Sparks fan!

Not nearly as good as the Notebook - while this story is interesting and sweet, it is not as touching and memerable. References to the Notebook's Noah brought tears to my eyes, but the main story of The Wedding was just a sweet romance of a couple in their late fifties/early sixties, from a man's perspective. It's a very fast read. I gave it the low rating because I expected so much more.

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.

The only reason I read this book is because it is the sequel to The Notebook, which I loved for its deep meaning to me. But this is probably the last Nicholas Sparks book I will read... He is a very good author as far as his use of place and time. It is his characters that are irritating. A person can be romantic without all the flabby feelings all over the page - at times his people are nauseatingly spineless wimps. Yuck! Not like real life at all! However, I do like the planning and timing he uses for the plot. D.

Wilson Lewis comes to the sad realization one day that after thirty years of marriage his wife, Jane, has fallen out of love with him. Janes father, Noah, (this book is the sequel to THE NOTEBOOK) has always had respect for Wilson and Noah tells him stories of how he kept Allie from falling out of love with him.

Wilson is an estate lawyer and has spent very little time at home over the years. He realizes that Jane fell out of love with him when he forgot their twenty-ninth wedding anniversary.

Jane was a stay-at-home mom and raised their three kids -- Anna, Joseph, and Leslie.

Anna comes home one day to announce that she is getting married. Because of Noahs health and since her fiancé is heading to college, they want to get married the next Saturday. Anna claims that she wants a small wedding at the courthouse, but her mom, of course, wants a big wedding, even though they only have eight days to put it together.

Saturday is Wilson and Janes anniversary and Wilson wanted to do something really special this year so he took the week before and the week after their anniversary off from work. He hasnt taken that much time off in eight years!

With all the work to do with the wedding, Wilson has been making Jane dinner more often and trying to help out as much as he can. What will Wilson do to make his wife fall back in love with him, so that she doesnt leave him?

Coming from Nicholas Sparks, this book had a very high bar set for it. And this romantic love story went far beyond that! THE WEDDING is yet another wonderful romance from this amazing author!
