Summary:

From the world's most beloved chronicler of the heart comes this astonishing story of everlasting love. Here, endings bring new beginnings and tragedies lead to unexpected joy, as the tale begun in True Believer continues...AT FIRST SIGHT There are a few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he'd never do: He'd never leave New York City; never give his heart away after barely surviving one failed marriage; and never become a parent.Now Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, engaged to Lexie Darnell, the love of his life, and anticipating the start of their family. But just as everything seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, a mysterious e-mail sets off a chain of events that will test the strength of their commitment. Capturing all the heartbreak, tension, and romance of the newly wed, AT FIRST SIGHT explores the love between a man and a woman and between a parent and a child-and reveals an extraordinary truth: that the emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it...

    Nicholas Sparks does a wonderful job of bringing the reader into each character's life through the thorough, descriptive style in which he introduces his characters into the storyline. I have spent many hours these past two months being entertained by Nicholas' talented mind and the emotional life's of his characters.

    Very enjoyable. Easy to get into and follow... not the ending I expected or wanted, but a good book none the less.

    This is the 2nd book by Nicholas sparks that I have listened to, and I think it's official, I just don't care for his stories. I kept waiting for something to actually happen in this story...somthing more than regular life, but it never came. The beginning was so slow I almost gave up. But I love the narrator, David Aaron Baker (from Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas books), and I'm guessing that is why I put it on my list in the first place.

    Ugh! I couldn't even finish it. I had to keep turning it off and then go back to it. It would just lose me in all the "sap". I agree with the "anonymous" WAY too sappy and really the story went nowhere. There was 7 discs of just babble. I did not connect with any of the characters. As a matter of fact, I really could not stand the Lexie character. Her dying was so predictable that I just decided to stop it there and return it.

    not as good as other Sparks books, but a good one at that. Sparks is always one to make you stop and think, and look around you before you jump to conclusions. Great book, and if you like sparks, read it!!

    This was another great book by Nicholas Sparks! Of course, some paople may not realize that this is a sequel to True Believer, so make sure you get that one first! All of his books are wonderful...you can't go wrong if you like a good romantic story and aren't afraid to cry :-)

    This was a big disappointment... anti-climactic and extremely sappy.
