At First Sight
Now, I didn't put this together with "True Believer" until I started to write this review, so I was pissed throughout the entire book because there was NO detail about how they fell in love, so it was completely unbelievable - it sounded like Jeremy was constantly trying to talk himself into believing he was in love.
I was listening to this one in ...more
At First Sight is a romance novel by Nicholas Sparks, written in 2005. Set in North Carolina, United States, At First Sight is the sequel to Sparks’ previous book, "True Believer", written in the same year. At First Sight, was originally the result of a 45-page epilogue in True Believer. Sparks’ editor thought this was too long for an epilogue, and damaged the effect of True Believer. It was then that Sparks got the idea to wr ...more

Pero en esta historia la vuelven odiosa, mentir ...more
The writer has described things beautifully, the common problems in being a relationship,trust issues. The anxiety and fear relating with starting a new life, marriage, kids and parenting. Though things and events sometimes seems to get slower and tedious, but I like his way of describing feelings and emotions ...more
Just like Jeremy and Lexie’s union, this book is really rather a waste of time. It puts you through a relationship from hell with no rewards in sight even if you manage to reach the back cover. This couple’s courtship and marriage is a dispiriting affair peppered with doubts, lies and Lexie-laid emotional minefields that no intelligent man (as Jeremy was portrayed to be) would have tolerated for 10 minutes, never mind 277 pages. Even the poor old baby that the tw ...more

Originally, my rating for this book was 2.5 stars but I couldn't do that here so I rounded it off.
Nicholas Sparks is a great author, no doubt about that. But here's the thing. His books have exactly the same plot but only with different characters; and twists that would seem to make each of his books distingu ...more
