I had recently had to make a trip to Indianapolis. It was a long three hour drive. I had asked my librarian if she could recommend an audio-book that I could listen to in the car. She had pointed out a few Nicholas Spark novels. She had said that she was the BIGGEST Nicholas Sparks fan. He had wrote novels such as A Walk to Remember and Dear John that had been turned onto movies. The Lucky One is currently playing at the theaters now.
I had chosen The Best of Me for my drive. And I loved it! I'm not ashamed to say that I was in tears by the time I had reached end of the novel.
After I had finished listening to all the cds, I had went back to get The Notebook. I had watched the movie version so I knew that it had some tear-jerking moments. To my surprise, the movie was slightly different from the original novel. It was like I was listening to a new story line.
And as I had expected, tears had flowed. I mean A LOT of tears! To tell the truth, the tears would stop. I have to admit that I really enjoy the literary works of Nicholas Sparks.
And a bonus - the story included a quilt. It didn't possess a large part of the story, but I could visualize how it would have looked like.
I may never make this quilt. If I'm lucky, there might be more novels that includes a quilt somewhere in the story (I can remember Bella having a quilt on her bed in Twilight). I can fantasy what they may look like!
