By the time Sophia arrived at the ranch, Luke had already loaded the horses in the trailer and packed the truck. A few minutes later, they were heading west on the highway, Sophia fiddling with the radio. For the past thirty minutes. She giggled.
Guess what? I bought some boots yesterday. My very own pair. I did, however, remember to bring you an extra hat. She looked at him. Frankenstein Classics , Fiction.

Cancel Accept. Sophia didn't have a tiny bit of character at all. Their love story was so commonplace that I doubt it was worth even writing about.
The two stories were so different and individual that it was strange connecting and making any parallels between them. These are just two separate plots which were somehow connected in one book.
The ending was obvious and too "fairy-tale". Not a joke in the whole book. Not a spark of excitement, big revelations, hard decisions or impressive moments. This book, which I only read till the end out of respect for the author, was a complete waste of time. View all 14 comments. Dec 07, Angela rated it really liked it.
Enjoyed this way more than The Choice Having this image in my head didn't hurt either Sep 18, Jamie-leigh Haughn rated it liked it Shelves: books-i-own. This book wasn't quite what I had expected, it started out feeling very much like The Notebook but it didn't live up to that standard. Overall I enjoyed this book, not my favourite Nicholas Sparks book, but then again, not the worst! I found it a bit slow at times and I didn't find that Luke and Sophia had great chemistry in comparison to other Sparks couples.
I really like all of the characters as individuals, Luke was a dreamy cowboy who was a bit rough around the edges and Sophia was a very re This book wasn't quite what I had expected, it started out feeling very much like The Notebook but it didn't live up to that standard.
I really like all of the characters as individuals, Luke was a dreamy cowboy who was a bit rough around the edges and Sophia was a very relatable character.
Ira was sweet and so full of love, I just wish his section of the story wasn't all memories. I enjoyed Luke and and Sophia's sections far more than Ira's, I found my attention slipping during his parts.
I did however really enjoy how the two stories came together in the end, it was done very well. I have to say I was expecting something more tragic to happen in the book and was almost disappointed when it didn't happen.
There was some buildup with not much climax. That being said, its still a good book and if you enjoy reading Spark's novels I think you should give this one a try. I'm very excited for the movie! View all 3 comments. Apr 10, Shan rated it did not like it Shelves: audio-book.
I'm sorry but this has to be one of the stupidest books I've read. Yes, I've already mentioned in past reviews that I'm not really a fan of Sparks' work. So why do I continue to read them, you ask?
Well, it's simple: I'm cheap. My town's library is tiny and has a miniscule selection of audiobooks--except for Nicholas Sparks' books, apparently. Well, why would I even listen to an audiobook if I can read a book from a much larger selection? That, too, i I'm sorry but this has to be one of the stupidest books I've read.
That, too, is simple: I work hour days doing data entry and I have the privilege of being able to listen to whatever I want.
Some days, I can get through a book, or two, and then I feel like I've accomplished something. Upon arriving home after a hour day including commute time , my eyes are tired and I cannot stay awake long enough to read a page or two. They can, however, function long enough to watch two hour long shows. Funny how that works, huh? Therefore, I stick to the teeny tiny selection of audiobooks. You can't tell me you couldn't see it coming from a mile away that oh, no!
Someone's going to die! And, oh, wait, what does Ira's life and Sophia's and Luke's life have anything to do with each other? You can't tell me that you couldn't foretell the fact that after Ira died his massive and quite expensive art collection would have to find a new home. And you can't tell me that you thought he would give it away to charity, because how would that tie together a Sparks book?
It wouldn't. Somehow, someway these people's lives had to intersect, and I saw it coming. It may be probably But guess what! That's exactly what happens in this book. Luke and Sophia's lives become richer because they inherit tons of paintings that are worth a ton, at the EXACT same time that Luke's family is losing the family ranch. Give me a break. No, really, give me a break.

Going into his each of his books, I never doubt he has a good story to tell. However, that story is not always for me. It unusually ends in one of two ways… I either hate it or love it. Thankfully, The Longest Ride was absolutely perfect! Probably my first, hopefully not my last, 5 star rating for Sparks. The first story is of Ira Levinson, who is a ninety-one year old widower that has careened off a snowy embankment and is stranded waiting for help.
As the hours and cold set in, the outlook is bleak and daunting. The second story occurs miles away between a cowboy, bull-rider named Luke and a college student named Sophia. As these storylines progress, we get to know these two couples and all the while ponder how Sparks will merge their lives. Well, let me end by saying this, the crossroads for their stories was an amazing moment, and the twist at the end had me smiling, guffawing and pining to see the movie.
Loved it! View all 25 comments. So, yes, I am one of those, I have to read the book prior to the movie. The voice actors were PERF 4. Who cares he went to war or that he is poor? BUT as I listened more I started to fall in love with it. Luke is a bull rider and he is coming out of retirement to back to bull riding.
Sophia is a typical nerdy college student. Sophia and Luke meet when Sophia visits over the weekend. They have a cute and very realistic relationship. I think that is why people love these books so much.
Overall, the last part of the book is the best part. The pace picks up and you wonder how everything will conclude. I increased my rating because of how I felt when I finished the book. This is my first narration by January LaVoy and she is fabulous. She has a sweet and very pleasant voice and I loved her male transition.
Sometimes I felt like it was a male narrator speaking to me. I will definitely stalk her and listen to more of her books. This is my first narration by Ron and he sounded like his character, I really old man. I loved his reactions and I felt his emotions. They both fall in love, and she finds herself in an unforeseen future, which was chosen by Luke, provided the secret he is keeping from her does not destroy it first.
