Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with an emotionally powerful story of unconditional love, its challenges, its risks and most of all, its rewards.

At 32, Russell Green has it all: a stunning wife, a lovable six year-old daughter, a successful career as an advertising executive and an expansive home in Charlotte. He is living the dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that. But underneath the shiny surface of this perfect existence, fault lines are beginning to appear...and no one is more surprised than Russ when he finds every aspect of the life he took for granted turned upside down. In a matter of months, Russ finds himself without a job or wife, caring for his young daughter while struggling to adapt to a new and baffling reality. Throwing himself into the wilderness of single parenting, Russ embarks on a journey at once terrifying and rewarding-one that will test his abilities and his emotional resources beyond anything he ever imagined.

Reviews

  • Most Unlikeable

    By DocH2007
    Mr. Sparks has created a protagonist so unlikeable, his past successes can't even compel me to finish this book. The main character is spineless, naive, and lacks basic levels of self-worth and common sense. The flashback-style writing does nothing to keep the story moving, and only fosters contempt for all of the characters. Money - and time - was wasted on this one.
  • Couldn't finish it...

    The story is a little drawn out, but promising. However by chapter 6, I just simply couldn't take anymore of Mr. Sparks misuse of the words "bring" and "take". One takes something THERE, and brings something HERE.
  • Worst Sparks Book Ever!!!

    First, I have read almost every book written by Nicholas Sparks and loved them. This book felt like it was written by someone else. It was a boring disaster! The main character is a spineless wimp who's only advise on his failing marriage comes from his gay sister. It is completely different from Spark's normal writing style. I did not even finish it. Horrible book!!!

    First off, if they don't turn this into a movie, they're all idiots. Second, while a movie of this book would be great, I don't think it would even come close to how amazing I thought this book actually was. It had me in tears, laughter, and amazement. It's the first book by Nicholas Sparks that I've read and I'm starting to realize that I need to read all of his other books. He's a great author and he should never stop writing books.

    I honestly don't know why this book was written. This is a horrible book. I didn't like Vivian or Russ. She was mean and nasty and he was a wimp. I couldn't read this book and even skimming and skipping didn't help. This is a really bad book.
  • Cut off pages

    I really enjoyed this book. Seeing things from a man's perspective was very eye-opening. However, the last page of the last 2 chapters and the epilogue were cut off! Very frustrating.

    I've read almost every single Nicholas Sparks book. This one was definitely different than his others, but I thoroughly enjoyed it! I couldn't put it down!! And of course, as always, I cried multiple times. I definitely recommend to anyone that loves romance novels.

    I seen some negative reviews on this book and I really don't understand why. I found this book a good read. It might be hard for some to understand why a man wouldn't stand up for himself against a controlling wife but you have to understand that there are not only women living with controlling husbands but vice versa. When your made to believe your at fault for things even when your not you come to believe that person you love. I found this book very good with a lot of hidden advice for people of both sex living in those circumstances. It would be nice if we all had a big sister or brother who could give us good advice like in this story. Very sad ending but loved this book thank you
