Synopsis

Set amid the austere beauty of the North Carolina coast, Nicholas Sparks tells the story of Travis Parker, a small-town veterinarian who's perfectly content with the active and exciting life he leads. Since he uses his spare time bungee jumping and swimming with the dolphins, he can't shake the belief that a woman would simply slow him down. That is, until Gabby Holland enters his life. Gabby, Travis's new neighbor, is in love with her boyfriend of three years, and wants nothing more than to start planning the wedding she's always dreamed about. However, there is a story within a story and the connection between Travis and Gabby is just a beginning. As their tale unfolds, their relationship becomes something different--with much higher stakes. With echoes of THE NOTE BOOK abound, listeners everywhere will fall in love.

About the Author

Nicholas Charles Sparks was born in Omaha, Nebraska in December 1965. He is an American novelist primarily, but has also developed into a screen - writer and producer of films. He is an Alumni of the University of Note Dame, and is recently separated from wife, Cathy. They have five children.

At 19, Sparks was inspired to begin writing by a comment his Mother made to him. After writing two early novels, Sparks sought to attend law school, but was rejected. He tried several other careers in the next three years before co-authoring a book that only sold 50,000 copies the first year. It was not until moving to Washington, DC in 1993, that he wrote his most famous and celebrated novel, The Notebook. The novel was discovered by a literary agent who found it in her agencies "slush pile". In 1996, The Notebook made the New York Times best-selling listing the first week it was released.

Sparks has had several international best-sellers and several have been adapted to film: Message in a Bottle, A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, Nights in Rodanthe, Dear John, The Last Song, The Lucky One, Safe Haven, and The Best of Me.

Typical Sparks book about love with life altering problems thrown in!

AudiobooksNow review by Ellen on 2012-03-26 20:24:09

Nicholas Sparks is one of my guilty pleasures. Im a hopeless romantic, and if I want the sort of love story that exists as always in fiction and rarely, if ever, in real life, intense emotions, and a good cry, all in a breezy, brisk read, he is my goto guy. With The Choice, however, the hallmarks pun intended of what makes a Nicholas Sparks book a Nicholas Sparks book, lost their charm. I found the story too contrived and too predictable, even for this author. I resented the degree to which my emotions were blatantly manipulated. The main characters actions didnt move me at all they infuriated me, particularly as the story came to its conclusion. When I finished the book, I quite literally threw it at a wall in disgust. Has Sparks lost his touch, or have my tastes simply matured? Im not sure, but I havent read another book by my onetime guilty pleasure author since this disappointment.
