At First Sight by Nicholas Sparks
Cover Art: Nothing too special about it – typically Nicholas Sparks~
I had only read Sparks’ Message in a Bottle and picked this up on a whim from the library. I only found out after reading a couple of the reviews here on Goodreads… some indication that the story was continuing from True Believerwould have been nice~! [Most likely will not read that book now that I’ve essentially read the ending]
The title of the book suggests that the characters fall in love at first sight. And though the story indicates that they did, there were hardly any “lovey-dovey” scenes that are to be expected when a couple first gets together. The story begins with the plan that the characters get married. The planning process is supposed to be a happy, exciting event, but all I felt that was conveyed through the characters was stress and regret. The story has its ups – like those random short sweet moments that actually happen in life. But all in all, there were more sad and angry moments than I expected. Unfortunately this was a book I could put down before finishing.
As for Sparks’ books in general, all I can say is “Next!”
PS: Am I starting to see a pattern to the endings in Nicholas Sparks’ books?
