The Choice - Nicholas Sparks - Review

Book: The Choice
Author: Nicholas Sparks
Publisher: Sphere
ISBN: 9780751540574
Rating: A+

Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job; loyal friends; his dream home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life, he believes that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is until Gabby Holland moves in next door. Despite Travis's attempts to be friendly, she seems to have a chip on her shoulder about him. But something compels Travis to get to know his new neighbor. His persistent efforts lead them both to make tough decisions, the consequences of which neither could have foreseen. The Choice confronts us with that most heart-wrenching question of all: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?

I adored this book and how it's so simple but has a massive effect on the reader. It goes through the daily life issues and just makes them so interesting. The writing as usual is amazing. Nicholas really helps you to understand the character so speaking that that that the character becomes your personal friend. The description and emotions in the words is perfect and you feel like you are there.

The Book has a touch of humor but not too much. It's balances the story well, not too melodramatic when Gabby is in a coma, not to funny that it's not funny at the beach. The characters are well formed and all of them have a rock solid foundation. The book just sort of slips into place, as Sparks just stays that tiny bit ahead of you giving you a surprise every twenty to thirty pages. This book is a phenomenon that blew me away. A touch story of Love, Life and loss. I adore this so so so much and would most definitely read it again.

The closeness to the characters that you feel is so realistic, when they feel happy you feel happy and so on. My favorite character was Travis, but he was the main character along with Gabby so I guess it had an influence on me. The chemistry between Gabby and Travis is like a natural spark of energy which is sort of one of my favorite way oh having a love story. Take Romeo and Juliet (yes we all know they were suicidal) perfect couple.

It's not a book you would have a sequel for. Where it end is The End. Don't try to change it, but another book could be written about Gabby's pregnancy stage and the eight years after that leading up to part two of the choice. It could be a novella (preferably) or a novel. But yeah.  

Yet again Sparks has succeeded to impress me again with The Choice, the second of his books I have read, The last song being the first. I would recommend to to anyone, because it has something for everyone in it. Absolutely amazing.


  1. Nicholas Sparks has done it again with this book. I enjoyed every bit of reading this. This novel seemed to be very realistic and there was tons of romantic moments.

As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms – and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future – and the future of a world cleaved in two.

It has been a long time since I've loved a book as much this. A court of mist and fury is by far the best book that I have read in 2016 so far, and easy surpassed it's predecessor a court of thorn and roses.

The plot of this was so incredibly per…

Apologies and Explanations

Okay guys, we need to talk and by that I mean I have some apologies and explaining to do to you. So as you've more than obviously noticed I've been extremely inactive this year, even after promising I'd try to be more active. So now I'm going to explain why. By no means have I abandoned the blog nor do I want to. I seriously love this blog so much and connecting with you all and sharing my love for books and reading with you all. In fact it's really frustrating for me to be unable to devote the amount of time I'd like to to this blog. So to reader, authors and publishers, I'm insanely sorry for my lack of presence. Anyway apologies aside let me explain why it's been this way. Last September I started my first year of A levels and quite honestly I had no idea the amount of time they'd take up in my life and they did take up way loads of time. I found that not only did I have no time write blog posts but I had no time to read either, unless you count…
