Then there's the prospect of this book being a sequel to the more popular The Notebook. While that story had WWII and the thrill of finding true love against adversity, the sequel is rekindling a romance that seems to have faded (but it really hasn't, in my opinion). It doesn't help that the more interesting parts of The Marriage were recollections of events pertaining to The Notebook's protagonists.
Personally, it was too much materialism that drew away my interest for the romance in this one.(less)
I can’t remember for the life of me when I last read a Nicholas Sparks book...or which one - or if I read more than 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 - predictab ...more

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 ...more
Once again I was blown away by a book written by Sparks. It was so intense, so pure and the ending was a great surprise for me. Books like this one change the way people think.
It was so perfect... in all the ways possible. I don't know why I didn't read this book sooner.
I don't have words to describe what this book made me feel. But peace, tranquility, love and special seem to be the suitable words.
The concept of the book is so beautiful, but the way it was presented was very difficult to get into at first. I also found that after reading many of his books, they start to become very similar, and predictable.
The story was incredibly heartfelt, nonetheless, and ...more
This is a story of the renewal of love, of vows, of compassion, and how it is possible for a couple to learn how to love each other again no matter how disappointed one is in the other.
I loved this book. It was so cute. I want to find rose petals all throughout the house and find a cute dress and high heels. I don't even need to be picked up in the limo. I think a great romantic night planned would be absolutely incredible! I swooned when I read it.
While I personally don't agree with ...more
