Was so happy with what I thought was to be the ending, and then was disappointed when found wasn't to be.
I have read just about all of Nicholas Spark's books starting with my favorite A Bend in the Road and I have been hooked every since. I do have a confession to make, my name is also HOPE and found a few entries that came strangely close to my own, so I picked up the book and started reading it, im so glad that I did. He has the ability to make his characters as real as your next door neighbor, he makes you feel what they feel and when its over he leaves you wanting more. Sometimes it takes a bit to get to the juicy stuff. But in the end the journey is always worth it!
Absolutely LOVED this book.
As much as I love Nicholas Sparks movies, this was the first of his actual books I've read. Probably will be the last. While others seem to enjoy his books and the plot in this was alright, I found his writing style quite dry and boring.
I've read quite a few of Nicholas Sparks books, and this one is a bit of a different take of the same old story. Likeable characters. It wasn't page turning for me, but I did finish it, skimming a bit from time to time. I would like to go to North Carolina someday and check out some of the areas that he writes about because they seem quite enchanting.
If you're looking for light reading, this is a good choice. A Walk to Remember is, and always will be, my favourite Sparks book, and yes, I read it before the movie. :)
One of my favorite authors. I've read all his books and this, by far and wide, was a deeply moving story. Wow. I felt this book in my soul.
Nicholas Sparks does not disappoint! Naturally, a box of kleenex should be handy - but then, if not your first try of a Sparks novel, you already know this. Well written, hard to put down until you get to the final page, and then you want to start all over to be sure you didn't miss anything along the way!
Great read! Seriously give this book a chance, you won't be disappointed, but keep your tissues handy!
I like anything Nicholas Sparks so when I heard he was coming out with a new book I was all in. I was even more interested that it was loosely based on a true story. I kind want to visit the Kindred Spirits now. Good read.
Nicholas Sparks is a hit and miss author for me but this one petered out really quickly. The prologue, signed by the author, tells you that this is based upon a true story, but please, read the note at the end of the book. People familiar with "this is a true story...Fargo series" will know what I mean. Like other reviewers, I skimmed most of the novel and only because I was hoping it would get better. It took me 10 days to read the last 10 pages. Maybe they could do a better job with a Hollywood movie script where talented actors could bring the characters and scenary alive, something that the author failed to execute here.
