    A friend of the family loaned me two Nicholas Sparks books The friend is very nice However, reading Nicholas Sparks, to quote Tommy Smothers, makes me realize why some animals eat their young.

    The Wedding almost seemed like it was specifically written for me to hate and it s been a long time since I ve disliked a book this much There s no real art to it people are white as paper and so forth , but it s written for people who don t exactly have alternative lifestyles or world views The baby boomer housewife married her husband because he respected her desire to be a housewife at a time when most people our age wanted to change the world, and she knew he d be a good provider A The Wedding almost seemed like it was specifically written for me to hate and it s been a long time since I ve disliked a book this much There s no real art to it people are white as paper and so forth , but it s written for people who don t exactly have alternative lifestyles or world views The baby boomer housewife married her husband because he respected her desire to be a housewife at a time when most people our age wanted to change the world, and she knew he d be a good provider As someone who eloped and really upset her mother , I flinched when the wife freaked out just because her daughter wanted a small wedding and says she would be horrified if her daughter had eloped The entire book is devoted to wedding plans the narrator will say something like I spent the afternoon in my den making calls for the wedding and then DETAIL them called the sheetrock guy, who saidcalled the gardener, who said These are conversations that bore me in real life, so why would I want to read them in a book I m ostensibly reading for pleasure And it is so over the top the daughter asks her mom to be her matron of honor, and then there s a twist at the end that is impossible to believe would ever happen Still, there are folks that will love this book despite its sappiness, and I don t want to rain on their paradethan I already have

    Library Overdrive Audiobook.narrated by Tom WopatI can t remember for the life of me when I last read a Nicholas Sparks bookor which one or if I readthan one I remember reading 1 book though for sure and have seen a couple of his movies so although I had no idea what the specifics were going to be when I saw the Audiobook pop up on my library feed as available now I knew enough in general that his books movies were love stories sweet touching predictable wit Library Overdrive Audiobook.narrated by Tom WopatI can t remember for the life of me when I last read a Nicholas Sparks bookor which one or if I readthan one I remember reading 1 book though for sure and have seen a couple of his movies so although I had no idea what the specifics were going to be when I saw the Audiobook pop up on my library feed as available now I knew enough in general that his books movies were love stories sweet touching predictable with old fashion values I say that as a good thing , and is as American as apple pie or was our country has been changing as you ve noticed Also there would be no graphic sex scenes So.given that I recently read 4 books about African Americans I Know Why Caged Birds Sing Heads of the Colored People Friday Black Washington Black.I thought. hm, when s the last time I read a book that was specifically about caucasian characters None came to mind not like this This isn t a WWII book an immigration book not a book about rape or abuse or murder or a kidnap no major accident or disability not a heavy political novel either..so my hunch was right this novel is primarily about a caucasian couple and their relationship and or A WEDDING.but WHAT ELSE I wasn t completely ignorant about the type of book I chose but..I WAS ACTUALLY CURIOUS ABOUT WHAT THEIR issues would be So.May I be serious now Tom Wopat was TERRIFIC as the voice narrator He was easy on the ears.very natural to listen to The issue at hand is actually something very real It s very common for a married couple who ve been married 20 years to have experienced the same issues that Wilson Jane did in this novel Wounds hurt wounds happen.such as what happened with Jane and Wilson Jane was quietly hurting for a long time and that hurt came to a head when Wilson forgot their 29th wedding anniversary This story is written from the male s perspective Some married women might wish their husbands listened to this Audiobook.There is a lot of self reflection.As the story unfolds we see the effort the work that Wilson makes to heal those wounds to transform himself little by little The guy doesn t give up Truthfully any wife would be moved by the steps Wilson took to show Jane how committed he was to generating life love romance and sincere vitality of freshness in their relationship.Many other gem stories characters within these pages with a wonderful ending I liked itfor what this book was lighter issues than world issues yet some very real personal ones between couples who have been married a long time raised kids have lived busy somewhat parallel lives with different rushing around schedules passing each other a little too often with great solutions

    Most Nicholas Sparks books are tear jerkers and heartbreaking, I just didn t expect this one to make me cry a little It sof happy tears than sad ones I m just incredibly touched with the story Noah Calhoun s words helped Wilson Lewis to become a better man to his wife, Jane Realizations of how much time he lost because he s too busy at work and doesn t pay much attention to his family Wilson made a mistake of forgetting their wedding anniversary and hurts Jane s feelings To make up Most Nicholas Sparks books are tear jerkers and heartbreaking, I just didn t expect this one to make me cry a little It sof happy tears than sad ones I m just incredibly touched with the story Noah Calhoun s words helped Wilson Lewis to become a better man to his wife, Jane Realizations of how much time he lost because he s too busy at work and doesn t pay much attention to his family Wilson made a mistake of forgetting their wedding anniversary and hurts Jane s feelings To make up for it, he prepared something special on their next anniversary The ending is just really sweet in my opinion I really like it

    So this is basically part 2 of The Notebook, the book and movie which made grown men cry OK So, Wilson forgets to bring a big bouquet of flowers and an expensive bottle of perfume through the door on their 29th anniversary He has forgotten Jane pouts until bedtime when she tells him what he has done now That is the beginning of all the trouble Then, Jane runs off to spend time in her son s out of state flat Apparently thinking about leaving Wilson, The Husband Who Has Forgotten Their Anni So this is basically part 2 of The Notebook, the book and movie which made grown men cry OK So, Wilson forgets to bring a big bouquet of flowers and an expensive bottle of perfume through the door on their 29th anniversary He has forgotten Jane pouts until bedtime when she tells him what he has done now That is the beginning of all the trouble Then, Jane runs off to spend time in her son s out of state flat Apparently thinking about leaving Wilson, The Husband Who Has Forgotten Their Anniversary The son then tells his dad how devastated his mother was Shame on you, Dad.Wilson shuffles into high gear when he realizes he may lose Jane Taking time off work he has become a workaholic , he pulls together a grand and beautiful and expensive wedding for his daughter in a week s time while he also tries desperately to woo Jane back For someone who has been neglectful for years, I am surprised at his creativity and alacrity in planning all these events.Meanwhile back at the ranch, Jane s father Noah, of Notebook fame is suffering health setbacks and she is panicky and irritible He spends his days sitting by the lake feeding a swan and now he s in hospital insisting he s all right.And Jane Help me here she feels she must be treated like a princess when she wants to be her 30th birthday, she is only given a diamond tennis bracelet instead of driven in a limo and given every single thing she wants She quietly mopes instead of taking the initiative and saying something like we re growing apart, what can we do and waits for Wilson to pick up on her silences Boohoo, I m not getting any attention, etc Then she has the gall to hate the swan that her father is feeding at the retirement facility I dunno Jane Get a grip.Anyway, in the end it all works out for everyone, especially Jane who feels like a queen once again instead of just a friend Perhaps it s because I ve never seen this kind of marriage and would shrink at a man fawning over me like that It might make me wonder what he s done wrong But then, that s just me and I don t speak for the rest of the world.I also think I m done reading anything by this author

    I read this book right after I read Twilight because I was on a romance kick very rare, I promise and I couldn t get my hands on New Moon At first I was worried it was going to be lame because it makes it seem like it s going to be another story about what a jerk the main guy is and how he s neglecting his wife However, I really liked the way the author made Wilson not a bad guy, but a good guy who just doesn t know any better I usually don t like mushy books because it always seems like it I read this book right after I read Twilight because I was on a romance kick very rare, I promise and I couldn t get my hands on New Moon At first I was worried it was going to be lame because it makes it seem like it s going to be another story about what a jerk the main guy is and how he s neglecting his wife However, I really liked the way the author made Wilson not a bad guy, but a good guy who just doesn t know any better I usually don t like mushy books because it always seems like it s way overdone, but this book was really sweet.The one aspect I didn t really like was the author ties the book to his previous one which I love The Notebook I guess you could argue that it plays a big part in this story, but I really don t think so I kinda think the author tied the two together to get people to buy this second book However, I think it stands fine on it s own.Warning If you cry easily in books, this could get you to tear up Plus, if you are one of those girls who always hopes your husband were a hopeless romantic, but honestly, he never has been so chances are he never will be, don t read this book Well, I take that back Read it if you can look at it as sort of a guide on things YOU can do yourself FOR your husband It made me want to be a lot nicer to JD

    Opening LineIs it possible, I wonder, for a man to truely change Although not the best book in Nicholas Sparks s collection this is an easy and sweet sometimes sickly read without the usual gut wrenching heartbreak at the end I found it amazing and a credit to Sparks as a writer that he was able to craft an entire book out of the simple premise of a wedding and a few flashbacks This is almost like a Seinfeld episode in that it s about nothing but still intriguing to watch unfold And eve Opening LineIs it possible, I wonder, for a man to truely change Although not the best book in Nicholas Sparks s collection this is an easy and sweet sometimes sickly read without the usual gut wrenching heartbreak at the end I found it amazing and a credit to Sparks as a writer that he was able to craft an entire book out of the simple premise of a wedding and a few flashbacks This is almost like a Seinfeld episode in that it s about nothing but still intriguing to watch unfold And even though he tries to be sneaky you ll have a pretty good idea early on of how it s going to play out.Despite the shining example set by his in laws Noah and Allie from The Notebook THE WEDDING tells the story of middle aged workaholic lawyer Wilson Lewis and his year long romantic journey to rebuild his failing marriage This is basically filler but it is good to hear from THE NOTEBOOK s Noah and Allie again Wilson has spent too little time at home and too much time at the office during his marriage Neglecting his wife and missing his children grow up The crux comes when Wilson forgets their 29th wedding anniversary and after witnessing his wife s tears and subsequent departure is forced to face a painful truth Jane has fallen out of love with him and it s entirely his fault Unable to express his true feelings in words although we get to hear all his internal dialogue andthan once I wanted to shout at him tell your wife how you feel, don t just think it Wilson vows to make some serious changes and somehow get his wife fall in love with him again Wilson spends the next year planning their 30th wedding anniversary He also goes on a diet, learns to cook romantic dinners and begins really listening to what his wife has to say As the day approaches their oldest daughter Anna suddenly announces that she s getting married and as a tribute to her parents wants to do it on their anniversary, overshadowing Wilson s secret plans Jane however is excited and begins showing new interest in both her routine life and as Wilson helps with the hurried preparations, their long neglected marriage Jane and Wilson s story is then told in a series of flashbacks as Wilson remembers what brought them together all those years ago Throughout the arrangements Wilson visits Noah at Creekside retirement home updating the cantankerous old man on the preparations and getting advice on how to save his marriage For me Noah was the best part of this book and I loved revisiting this spunky yet heartbroken character He is absolutely endearing here, spending his days feeding and talking to a lone female swan who in herself becomes a character With the memories of Noah and Allie as a guide and their old family home as a setting the wedding plans come together But has Wilson been able to change himself and their relationship enough to see them through things afterwards Will he be able to show her how much she has meant to him all these years And will it be enough
