In this deeply moving #1New York Timesbestseller, Nicholas Sparks turns his unrivaled talents to a tale about love found and lost, and the choices we hope we'll never have to make.

Travis Parker has everything a man could want: a good job, loyal friends, even a waterfront home in small-town North Carolina. In full pursuit of the good life - boating, swimming , and regular barbecues with his good-natured buddies -- he holds the vague conviction that a serious relationship with a woman would only cramp his style. That is, until Gabby Holland moves in next door.

Spanning the eventful years of young love, marriage and family, THE CHOICE ultimately confronts us with the most heart-wrenching question of all: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?
With over 100 million copies of his books sold, Nicholas Sparks is one of the world's most beloved storytellers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better then the notebook Was hooked once I stated it. I loved the characters and the fact that you could sence their love for each other even though their not real. This book was also really sad, though the entire “part 2” i cried but i love how it ended. The only thing I didn’t like is that Gabby cheated. Once of the best Nicholas sparks books ive read, even better then the notebook.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good. Well that was an emotional journey. The book seemed a little slow to start but then it became a whirl of emotions for me. Overall a good and heartfelt read and it really made me think about that type of choice that no one wants to have to make ever. It was interesting and heartbreaking to see these characters go through what they did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Undying love As all of Nicolas sparks books are, this book was a demonstration of a true and heart retching love story. It pulls at your heart strings like no other, and I found myself giddy and smiling throughout most of the 317 pages. I found myself rooting on the characters because you knew it was undeniable that they were perfect for each other, and then again towards the end rooting for their love to stay alive and that everything would turn out as it should. Nicolas Sparks is a romantic genius and never fails to extract all the proper emotions as if it was your own love story being casted out on these pages. Your eyes may fill with tears, you'll get anxious and curious with the turn of every page, but in the end you will always be left with you heart and mind filled with the warmth and giddiness of undying love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not His Best This was about the 10th Nicholas Sparks book I read and by far it is my Least Favorite - original story that does keep you interested but I was expecting more. Would recommend reading The Guardian, Message in a Bottle or Dear John before picking up this one

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Great Read Another great Read by Nicholas Sparks. I found this book really enjoyable. At some parts i found that it dragged on a little to much, but it was an easy read. The Book is full of True love, and heart-breaking tragedy that will have you reaching for that box of kleenex. The Story is about Travis Parker, A Happily single man, who lives the ultimate single man's lifestyle. He has great Friends, A good job and everthing he needs to fill in his spare time. A parasail boat, A jet Ski, and a motorcycle. Almost every relationship he's been in ended quickly or was just a fling...until he meet Gabby Holland, His new next door neighbour who thinks she has Travis all summed up by just one look at him. An embarrasing meeting with travis leaves him intrigued by gabby and decides to try everything he can to get to know her and get on her good side. They soon find themselves staring down a road that neither of them expected. If your a Nicholas Sparks fan, then you'll enjoy this one. It is full of everything that Sparks is famous for, Great love, Tragedy and Hope. I enjoyed this book and i would recommend it to anyone. Happy Reading!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not his best I'm a big fan of Nicholas Sparks but this one i found was a little disappointing. I feel like the story itself was really good, however it was drawn out way too long, i felt like there was too much fluff in between, or too much information building up. I'm not really sure how to explain it. However when the book started getting good (about half way through) i began seeing my favorite author shine through again,

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not At All What I Expected I started reading Sparks after The Wedding and The Notebook. His books quickly became a guilty pleasure, being a hopeless romantic at heart. I have to say though that I did not really enjoy this book as much as I hoped I would. It's by no means terrible and I will readily admit that I shed a tear or two reading Part 2, but Part 1 had me so mad I was ready to throw the book in the garbage and swear off Sparks forever. I don't want to disuade anyone from reading it but I felt like part one read like a cheaters handbook. I have always believed in true love, but if "true love" makes cheating on your partner okay, I may have to rethink my position. Not at all what I expected from this author. Of course, I'm still going to give him another chance. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Nicholas Sparks' love story between Travis and Gabby is amazing. I laughed and I cried. I got butterflies reading and waiting for them to finally kiss!! One of the best love stories I have read in a long time. I would recommend to anyone wanting to warm their heart and to remember true love is out there! :)
