Nicholas Sparks does it again

I picked up this book as something to read in my spare time, but it ended up gripping me for the two days it took to finish. It is the story of Gabby Holland and Travis Parker, two people destined to be together but are separated by heart-breaking choices. Sparks takes the reader through their meeting and falling in love, but Gabby has to choose between the boyfriend she's had for years and Travis, the man she's only known for three days. The story then leads to an even more unexpected choice that will bring you to tears. I recommend this to anyone who wants a quick and satisfying read.

    A chick flick in the making

    Slow, yet moving story of a young couple and a tragedy that impacts their world. It's prett schmaltzy (the ending had to be) and if it ever was made into a movie it would be the ultimate "Chick flick."

    Dissapointed

    I love 'NS', I enjoy all his books, I waited for 3 long months for this book, and was very dissapointed. I had a really hard time getting into it, and my mind wandered alot. I almost didn't finish it, but since I waited so long I figured I'd better.

    Not enthused

    I have every single book of N Sparks...and claim to be one of his most avid readers! I love everything he has ever done. This book really isn't different from his others, it was good. BUT this one lacked something. The only thing I can explain it as lacking is the real heart. Don't get me wrong, I cried at the end...but had he put more 'meat' into the story...building their love up more...letting us fall more in love...making it more believeable...maybe it would have gotten an outstanding from me. I would rate this as a 2.5.

    Sparks Fan...disappointed

    I've read ALL of Sparks novels and can not think of one that I haven't raved about and recommended to everyone. This is the first I've not loved. The Choice was just okay...I read it in one day because I was at jury duty otherwise I'm sure it would have taken me a long time to get through. Sorry to say I don't recommend this Spark's novel.

    Just OK

    I adore this author -- but most of the book was predictable which drives me nuts. I was a bit disappointed.
