"Stories are as unique as the people who tell them,
and the best stories are in which the ending is a surprise."

I feel like I has been singing an ode for Nicholas Sparks's books countless times on this blog. And yet I still have a lot to say. Because he is one of my favourite authors and he wrote my favourite book of all time which is A Walk to Remember as you probably know. And besides I haven't written book reviews about all of his books which I really would like to do at some point.

One thing that I enjoy about novels by Nicholas Sparks probably the most is that they seem so familiar to me when I start to read them. I mean, his stories are always somehow unique and new even though they deal with the same things about love, family and life, but there is also something about them that makes them so close to my heart. Whenever I feel desperate or beside myself I just go to find my inner harmony into the stories of his. And it always helps.

"Staring at the stars was like staring backward in time, since some stars are so far away that their light takes millions of years just to reach us. That we see stars not as they look now, but as they were when dinosaurs roamed the earth. The whole concept just struck me as… amazing somehow."

I have managed to read The Choice before its movie which was really great for everything in that book was surprise to me. I usually read books by Nicholas Sparks after watching their movies so this one was very nice exception. I think that this particular book by Sparks is very well written and has especially splendid atmosphere in it. And I would say that it could be great choice if you're going to read your first book by him. Definitely check it out, you're gonna love it.

Nicholas Sparks is really number one as a writer of romance. His novels are never ever cheesy even in their most intimate moments. His stories are moving and touching and always decent. And that's what I really admire about them. I think that books by Sparks are the proof that less can be more. He knows what to reveal and when to let his readers imagine. But what I found quite unusual and especially adoredorable about The Choice was that Nicholas Sparks has used much more dialogues between the main character than he normally has. And it was so enjoyable and lovely.
