Audio book read by Tom Wopat

This is a sequel to Sparks’s incredibly popular The Notebook. This book focuses on Noah and Allie’s oldest daughter, Jane, and her husband Wilson. After forgetting their anniversary, Wilson spends the next year trying to figure out how to make it up to Jane, with some sage advice from his father-in-law, Noah. But when their daughter announces she’s getting married on their anniversary, all Wilson’s plans are circumvented.

I’ve read a couple of books by Sparks. I actually enjoyed one of them. But this one is maudlin, overwrought, over-written, and saccharine. I figured out the twist in the first chapter. I finished it only because it fulfilled several challenges. I listened to the first half on audio but read the last half of the book in one evening.

Tom Wopat does a surprisingly good job of the audio. He even manages believable voices for the women. His performance earns a star.
