The Wedding - Nicholas Sparks post #1  quote:



From the Publisher
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks comes the long-awaited follow-up to his classic tale of enduring love, The Notebook. After 30 years, Wilson Lewis, son-in-law to Noah and Allie (of The Notebook fame), is forced to admit that the romance has gone out of his marriage. Despite the shining example of his in-laws' 50-year love affair, Wilson himself is a man unable to express how he truly feels. With the distractions of his daughter's upcoming wedding he is forced to realize how close he is to losing his own wife Jane. But if Wilson is sure of anything, it's this: His love for his wife has only intensified over the years, and he wants nothing more than to make their marriage work. Now, with the memories of his in-laws' inspiring life together as his guide, Wilson pledges to find a way to make his wife fall in love with him. . . again.
Author Biography: Nicholas Sparks lives in North Carolina with his wife and family.



From The Critics
Publisher's Weekly

Sparks's 1996 debut novel, The Notebook, was a fast and easy read that sold millions upon millions of copies. Other bestselling love stories followed (Message in a Bottle; A Walk to Remember; The Guardian), but Sparks's fans have from the very beginning eagerly anticipated a sequel to the romantic tale of Allie and Noah Calhoun. The wait is now over. Attorney Wilson Lewis has been married to Noah and Allie's daughter, Jane, for 30 years. Wilson and Jane have raised three children and lived a satisfying and prosperous life in the bucolic town of New Bern, N.C. After forgetting his anniversary, Wilson realizes that the passion and romance have gone out of his marriage and fears his wife no longer loves him. Being a methodical man, he decides to embark on a yearlong program to renew his romantic ties to his wife, seeking out the advice of Noah, who now spends his days in a retirement home feeding a swan he is sure is the reincarnation of his beloved Allie. In the midst of Wilson's machinations, his daughter Anna announces she is getting married. The upcoming wedding provides Wilson with the opportunity to bring his elaborate plan to fruition. Sparks tells his sweet story competently, without sinking too deeply into the mire of sentiment; a gasp-inducing twist comes at the very end. Satisfied female readers will close the covers with a sigh and a wish that a little of the earnest, too-good-to-be-true Wilson might rub off on their own bedmates. (Sept. 9) Forecast: Megamarketing by Warner (TV, radio and print ads; 30-city tour) and an eager fan base could make this the author's biggest book to date. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Nicholas Sparks is AMAZING. I own and have read all of his books, and they're all the kind of books that you start reading and then have to stay up till 3:30 in the morning so you can finish them, 'cause you don't wanna put them down. This one did not fail to disappoint. I was very excited to hear that the sequel to "The Notebook" was arriving, and I bought it and read it right away. Another amazing book from my favorite author.

I just saw The Notebook movie in the theater, and I was wondering what the differences were compared to the book. Just reading the synopsis for the new book, I can tell there are major differences

I think I saw a sneak preview, so the movie isn't everywhere yet. I don't want to give away the ending, so once someone see's it, let me know.

-HECK!

Nicolas Sparks is my favorite author currently. I have read everything he has written except the very latest "Three Weeks With My Brother." Does anyone know anything about that story? My favorite so far is "The Guardian"

The Wedding was good, but the ending could never happen in real life. It was purely fantasy.

HECK, there were a bunch of things left out of the movie, and a couple things were added into the movie (like the ferris wheel sequence), but overall, they pretty much stuck to the book. I was fairly impressed with that. Because they did a horrible job with "Message In A Bottle," so I was a little worried.

KerryO, I just finished reading "Three Weeks...". Nicholas Sparks is probably the only person that can write a memoir and make it just like his novels. I could not put it down. I mean, I was reading it while I was blow drying my hair for goodness sake. It basically goes back and forth between this trip he takes around the world with his brother, and telling about their past, growing up. It's amazing what he's been through. He also tells the inspiration for some of his books. I definately recommend it. You'll love it.

Thanks for the information on "Three Weeks With My Brother."
I hope my book club offers it soon. If not, I'll try for it at the berry. If not there, I may have to part with some hard earned cash and I'm sure it'll be worth it. Thanks again.
