The Wedding


The Wedding
With The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, and his other beloved novels, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks has given voice to our deepest beliefs about the power of love. Now he brings us the long-awaited follow-up to The Notebook-a story of an ordinary man who goes to extraordinary lengths to win back the love of his life... After thirty years, Wilson Lewis is forced to face a painful truth: the romance has gone out of his marriage. His wife, Jane, has fallen out of love with him, and it is entirely his fault. Despite the shining example of his in-laws, Noah and Allie Calhoun, and their fifty-year love affair (originally recounted in The Notebook), Wilson himself is a man unable to express his true feelings. He has spent too little time at home and too much at the office, leaving the responsibility of raising their children to Jane. Now his daughter is about to marry, and his wife is thinking about leaving him. But if Wilson is sure of anything, it is this: His love for Jane has only grown over the years, and he will do everything he can to save their marriage. With the memories of Noah and Allie's inspiring life together as his guide, he vows to find a way to make his wife fall in love with him...all over again. In this powerfully moving tale of love lost, rediscovered, and renewed, Nicholas Sparks once again brings readers his unique insight into the only emotion that ultimately really matters.

    I still remember the exact spot where I was standing in my home when I read the final pages of The Notebook. I had to hide from my kids because I was crying so hard! And I can say the same thing about Nicholas’ earlier books – Message in a Bottle, A Walk to Remember.But then I noticed that Nicholas’ books were gradually becoming tired and repetitive. I hated to admit it because I love his writing so much and I think he’s a great guy. He was really the first author I found who could touch me emotionally in a very real way without his novels being filled with junk. And so I’ve stayed loyal to him, but I feel as his fans that we need to challenge him more.All the stories are beginning to sound alike. And for the first time, with The Wedding, I didn’t feel anything for the characters. I tried to because I want to have that excitement again of picking up a Sparks novel and getting sucked into it and feeling something deeply for 250 pages.But it’s not there anymore. And so rather than contin…

    THE WEDDING by Nicholas SparksI’m a big Nicholas Sparks fan, so I may be somewhat biased as I review this book. THE WEDDING is the sequel to THE NOTEBOOK, the love story of Noah and Allie: a love that almost didn’t happen. Now, in THE WEDDING, we meet the next two generations of family members, and a somewhat complex story is told.Noah is now living at Creekside, where he and Allie had moved toward the end of her life. He spends his time feeding a lone female swan, distinguished by a dark patch of color on her chest. Noah feels that this is Allie come back to him, and his children feel that he’s lost touch with the world. Noah, however, never gives up on his theory and insists that it is his dear beloved wife.Noah and Allie’s oldest daughter, Jane, is married to Wilson Lewis. They’ve been married for nearly 30 years and have raised three children, all of whom are now adults. Jane and Wilson’s story is told in flashbacks, as Wilson remembers what brought him and Jane together all…

    I enjoyed “The Wedding” very much. It was very sweet, very sad. Sad not in the way you might think. Sad as in time is passing and it’s sad because you can’t change past mistakes. Just ordinary things that pass every day in your life, but it’s sad because you don’t treasure it, because you look back and you wish you had.”The Wedding” is about a man who realizes that after 30 years of marriage, his wife might not love him anymore. He recounts all of his mistakes, including the day when he forgot their 29th anniversary. So, as he prepares the ultimate present, he tries to change himself, to go past the barrier he has set himself. (He is a man of routine and uncomfortable with sentimentalities.) Also, more things are happening and changing around him. This “unsentimental” man struggles to express his unexpressable love for his “swan” (you’ll understand if you read) and also keeps a great secret from her and the reader, who will find the most delightful surprise at the end of this story.Ple…

    I started reading The Wedding the day that it arrived in the mail. I was finished by the next evening. I couldn’t put it down for long. I’d cook…read…clean up…read…put my 3 year old to bed…read. My husband and I have fallen into the same type of rut that Wilson and Jane had fallen into in the beginning of the book. It has given me hope and encouragement. I have already started my new year’s diet, and working on making myself closer to the person that he married. Not just weight wise, but being more attentive to him. The story was great. I saw the lady’s review that said his books are all the same. That’s what I like about Sparks. I know that when I pick up his books, I will laugh, cry, and finish the book with something to think about. Marriage is work. It is not easy and Sparks reminds us of that. Great book!!!…
