Book Review: The Longest Ride
veronica | Picking up a Nicholas Sparks novel is like having a conversation with an old friend. You know you’ll be entertained, your emotions will be all over the place and you may even cry. The Longest Ride is typical Sparks; two people meet, fall in love, fight and then someone dies. It’s a formula that Sparks has perfected over the years.
Normally I have a problem with reading books where I could tell you what will happen but Sparks has the ability to create characters that are not only believable but makes you care about them too.
I’m a huge sucker for romance and chivalrous guys but in this case, I just didn’t buy Luke and Sophia’s love. But Ira’s and Ruth’s relationship as Ira tells it is the story that I kept turning the pages for. I wish I could say I didn’t figure out the ending halfway through but I did. It didn’t take away from the overall story or my enjoyment of it.
