Usually, I’m not a big fiction fan; non-fiction dominates my reading time.
Usually, I don’t skip to the end of a book; I’m content to read straight through to see what happens.
When I started reading The Return by Nicholas Sparks, I got interested in the two leading characters. I really wanted to know more about the dynamics between them. I had never read any of Nicholas Sparks’ work before (although I loved the film A Walk to Remember, and isn’t The Notebook – movie version that is – such a touching story?) So, back to this book, I skipped to the end because I had to know how things would work out. I was pleasantly surprised with the interesting ending between the lead characters. No spoilers here, but I was pleased.
The Return is a long adventure into the lives of some people facing real struggles. Sparks earned points with me for setting it in one of my favorite places (the South) but you’ll like it just as well if you’re a Northerner. This will make a great Christmas gift for any fiction buff or anyone who has been wanting to dive into the genre for a while.
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
