I just finished up listening to the audio book Two by Two by Nicholas Sparks.
Whenever I see a Nicholas Sparks book I put it on my reading list. I’ve never been disappointed before and hoped I wouldn’t be this time either.
As far as I know, I’ve read every Nicholas Sparks book there is. I’ve never been disappointed and this time I wasn’t either. The book features a father/daughter relationship along with a brother/sister relationship. Both play a big part in the book. The book, as I listened along, was a little bit predictable…but then again, most of his books are. Isn’t that why we continue reading them?
Here’s what Amazon had to say, “At 32, Russell Green has it all: a stunning wife, a lovable six year-old daughter, a successful career as an advertising executive and an expansive home in Charlotte. He is living the dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that. But underneath the shiny surface of this perfect existence, fault lines are beginning to appear…and no one is more surprised than Russ when he finds every aspect of the life he took for granted turned upside down. In a matter of months, Russ finds himself without a job or wife, caring for his young daughter while struggling to adapt to a new and baffling reality. Throwing himself into the wilderness of single parenting, Russ embarks on a journey at once terrifying and rewarding-one that will test his abilities and his emotional resources beyond anything he ever imagined.”
Amazon readers give the book 4.2 stars. That really surprised me. I read some of the reviews left on Amazon. They were harsh…really harsh. There is no way that the book should get a one star rating. No way at all! The book was very Nicholas Sparksish. There was happiness-then sadness-a growing period and then an ending. I think reading a Nicholas Sparks book is always a bit the same…kind of like eating at a chain restaurant. If you order the burger and fries…it will taste the same in whatever restaurant you order it in. The thing is though…it’s always good-just like his books are always good. They aren’t the best book you’re ever read but they are always good. I liked the book. I thought it was very similar to all Nicholas Sparks books…simply good….and that’s a good thing, at least for me it is.
