The Choice

I have not read all of his books yet, but so far my favorite is The Choice. I listened to the audio book as I would drive...bad idea. I cried and cried. And I would sit there just to see what would happen next. What a wonderful story.

The Best of me is absolutely the best Nicholas Sparks book that I have read! once I started I could not put it down. It reaches into a wide range of emotions. I cannot recommend this book enough, especially if you are a huge Nicholas Sparks fan as myself! Cannot wait til his next book comes out!

I decided to read the last song after seeing the movie and cried while reading it. Not only was Sparks able to capture the things the movie could not portray like the suspense of this novel. Even knowing the ending already i was clueless to how farthe emotions and the compassion of the characters. Since then I have read the lucky one not only to myself, to my little sister as well who HATES reading. She was into the book and it's characters lives. She was begging and bribing me to read to her. I'm glad there's an author as talented as Sparks for me and my sister to rely on to show us what it's like to lose and gain true love.

I was fascinated with the loving details and deep feelings shown.

Message in a Bottle

I took my best friend to Boston & Maine,& they were filming by L.L.Bean & then went to my friends in West Paris,Me. & we were informed then about the filming, When we arrived back to WV she was diagnosed with acute Lekumeia,& 3 yrs. later with ovarian cancer,we had 13 wonderful years reading allof your books, Did not care for movie as much as the places were changed. Loveed all of your books. What is your new one?

The Lucky One

I really do believe The Lucky One was the best of his novels. I really got attached to the characters and the story, and I could not put it down. It took me a minimum of 3 days to complete it. I have never bawled tears or sadness, and joy, from a book before. I felt like I was actually watching the movie, because his details were so great, and made an amazing visiualization in my mind. It's not just about a guy traveling across the country to find out who the woman in the picture is. He's looking for his destiny. And as soon he sees her, he knows he's found it. All in all, it was an emotional rollercoaster, and I LOVED it. :)

Good movie, great book

I read "AWTR" while en route to Virginia and I loved it. The movie conveyed the romance but flit was made to appeal to today's young people so it lost some of its appeal for me.

Nights In Rodanthe

I have read and liked many of Nicholas Sparks books including The Last Song, The Noteboook, A Walk To Remember, Dear John, and working on The Wedding. But by just a little slide i think that Nights In Rodanthe is THE BEST. It is a truly amazing love story. It tells that true love can come and go but alwayss be happy:). I would recommend all of his books but just to get a good impression on his writing, please read Nights in Rodanthe, even though all his books will tell you how amazing of an author Nicholas Sparks really is:)..!!

The wedding

Loved every single book from Nicholas Sparks and can't wait to read more (please!!!), but this one got me...I adored the ultimate twist to the story...
