Anyone else like this author? I have to admit everytime I read one of his books, it makes me want to move to NC :-) Anyone else feel that way?

I've read a few of his books and have a couple more on my to read pile. Out of the ones I have read I think my favourite has to be The Guardian...so sad at the end.

I've read a couple or so of his works.

"A Walk to Remember" is by far my favorite. I easily related to the high school aged characters.

His works are worth searching out.

I have this one on my TBR pile. Is it sad like his others?

I think one of my favorites is Around the Bend i think is the name. It was very good and a quick read. All of Sparks' books are good anyway.

One of my favourite authors. I've read The Notebook, The Wedding (follow up to the Notebook) and At First Sight.

I've watched films that are based on his books such as The Notebook, A Walk to Remember and Message in a Bottle.

The films and the books never fail to make me cry.

Has anyone read his latest book called The Choice?

I've read The Choice. It was an easy read. Not one of his best, but still worth it. My fav from him was Notebook.

Yes, it is sad like his other books.

If they make the movie Dear John, then i won't go see it. Because i read the book and thought it was sad. So i don't want to be in the movie theater balling my eyes out.
:blush:

Out of the Nicolas Sparks books, my favorites are:

The Guardian
The Notebook
A Bend in the Road
and
The Rescue

I LOVE nicholas sparks' books!
They're all soooo sad, but sooo touching.
I haven't read that much of them:

A Walk To Remember
Dear John
True Believer
At First Sight (sequel of true believer).

The saddest and best of those IMO is At First Sight. I couldn't BELIEVEwho dies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear john comes second. I still remember the last sentence of that book...

Spoiler


And they were both looking at the moon... *sniff*

Atm i'm reading The Rescue. Good so far...

I've finish his "A Walk to Remember" in 2 hours and I was crying like crazy.

I quite like it and have been thinking to read another of his books.
Any suggestions??

I just read The Notebook. I'd never read any of his books before (not my usual kind of thing) and was blibbing like a baby. It's an excellent read and well worth trying if you haven't already.

I have 3 of his books, I have tried them, but to me they all have sad endings, I prefer happy endings.
