    2. Dicen que normalmente se conoce a los escritores por una obra que una nica novela es lo que les da la fama Dicen, no s si ser cierto o no, y mucho menos en el caso de este escritor aunque te vendan sus novelas como el autor que escribi El cuaderno de Noah Con esto no quiero decir que sta novela sea mala, ni mucho menos, es m s, me ha gustado bastante, sin embargo, y despu s de leer Querido John, de este mismo autor, esperaba algo m s.De todas maneras, es una muy buena novela.


    3. This was my first Sparks book and I really liked it I m so glad I finally read one of his books I must admit that the firs half of the book was really slow, I was wondering the whole time why was I reading it That s the reason why I m giving just 3 stars, and I almost gave 4, because then things got really good between the two characters and the ending was great.An important fact is that this book does have a HEA I must clarify this because Spark is known for his tragic endings, but this is not [...]


    4. I generally like Nicholas Sparks novels Reading his books are generally pleasingI don t believe any I ve read are masterpieces or anything, but they ve all been at least okay This one, however, was a letdown True Believer has to be his weakest book It didn t draw me in like his other work I didn t care much about the characters, and the story, I thought, was quite dull It s been a while since I read it, so I can t remember specifics, but my general feeling was that it was poorly written, and it [...]



    5. Even for my throw away books, I have SOME standards I call it my popcorn for the brain genre because they are usually fluffy and without substance I somewhat enjoyed The Notebook, so I thought that this would be an ok bet However, this book disappoints even on the popcorn level.The story was 100% predictable from the beginning so reading it wasn t the least bit exciting I know it s supposed to be a romantic book but the so called tension did not come across well in the book It just felt like two [...]


    6. I do enjoy a good ghost story, and I liked the storyline surrounding Jeremy Marsh trying to debunk the town s belief that there are real ghosts in their cemetery But, I found that the storyline surrounding the impending romance between Jeremy and Lexie extremely annoying Their conversations consisted mainly of irritating banter which I found difficult to believe I didn t find either of those characters endearing, at least during those segments of the book I did finish it I had to find out what w [...]


    7. Took me ages to finish this book.My experience Never start reading a book with high expectations Actually never do anything with expectations Your imagination sets the bar too high to be achieved.Normal storyNormal charactersOrdinary romance


    8. My first exposure to Nicholas Sparks A very pleasing experience He kept a gentle mix of mystery, romance, jelousy and intrigue within the context of his story I found the style to be easy to follow.


    9. Ugh There are so many things wrong with this book, I don t even know where to begin Someone needs to tell Mr Sparks that self respecting women don t sleep with a man after knowing him for only 2 days And no man I know is physically capable of making love all night Like most of his other books, this one was completely predictable The difference is that the characters in this one were pathetic Lexie is a whining snot Jeremy is a womanizer and I m expected to believe he suddenly sees the light and [...]


    10. Horrible I had to force myself to finish it I feel like reading this book robbed me of time I will never get back I loved The Notebook, but absolutely hated this story.


    11. More appropriately titled True Velveeta , this novel oozed cheese from every page Don t get me wrong, I enjoy a quick, light read of Nicky s work, but he over cheddar d this one Should I go, should I not, should I, should I not The main character painfully analyzes each and every decision he makes, from ordering a latte to chasing after a southern belle There is a sequel to this one, but barring an unexpected plot twist involving mushrooms and midgets, it may be awhile before I pick it up.


    12. This book was a great book I just finished it a couple hours ago and it was so good I sort of predicted that two of the main characters who started out as complete strangers would end up falling in love The basic storyline is about a man in his 30 s named Jeremy Marsh who goes to Boone Creek, North Carolina to solve a mystery People have reported seeing strange lights in the town cemetery that have been unexplained Doris, one of the residents of the town, sends a letter to Jeremy asking him to c [...]


    13. Picked this up at a consignment shop I was familiar with some of Sparks other books which have been adapted into films, but had never read anything by him.This was okay Sparks has a talent for creating interesting and substantial characters at least when they re not being annoyingly silly , and the writing is fine.The story here isn t bad, eitheror at least not all bad Unfortunately, certain elements border on sappy you got to be kidding me News Flash Intelligent women don t find guys who profes [...]


    14. This book lost me at the sentence, he breathed her name like a prayer That would never happen in real life And if it did happen it would be creeptastic.


    15. Before last week, I was a 22 year old girl who had never read a Nicholas Sparks novel or, for that matter, seen one of the movie adaptations of his books I know People criticized me for it, and I almost felt like my woman card was going to be revoked or something To remedy the situation, I bought a huge stack of his work last summer they were cheap garage sale finds , and almost a full year later, I actually sat down to read one Jeremy Marsh is a science journalist who gets his kicks exposing th [...]


    16. Agh, this book My grandma gave me this to read, but even she was like, um, yeah, it s kind of lame, so read at your own risk So, she did warn me, so this is all my fault.I think my problem is that I don t appreciate love stories where the woman gets to act like a raging b tch because she s been hurt in the past, but the man is supposed to chase after her, even after she pushes him away multiple times Lexie, our female lead, irritated me because that was all she did She d been hurt in the past, s [...]



    17. Quer a leer esta bilog a hasta que descubr que Nicholas mataba a su personaje principal, Lexie, y encima, tild ndola de infiel, mala, mentirosa, y otras perlitas Me parece horrible que le hiciera ESO a un personaje como Lexie, que es todo bondad Encima, siempre debe morirse alguien Y por lo general, las mujeres se llevan la palma Pero Jeremy tiene suerte, su mujer se muere y l forma una familia feliz con otra mujer S , porque los hombres deben ser afortunados y las mujeres deben morirse S , Nich [...]


    18. 2,5 estrelas Creio que este livro ter sido o que menos gostei do Nicholas Sparks O resumo promete, mist rio, fen menos estranhos com uma pitada de sobrenatural qui mas quanto a mim foi explorado de forma ins pida A desilus o ainda maior quando afinal a causa dos supostos fantasmas do conhecimento de todos menos por parte de quem investiga A previsibilidade quando confirmada de forma t o evidente torna se no m nimo, aborrecido Em compara o com outros que li do mesmo autor, este ficar certamente a [...]


    19. In TRUE BELIEVER, journalist Jeremy Marsh spends his time debunking the supernatural He has just finished exposing a fake television psychic, proving that the man was not able to read people s minds or see into their pasts When he hears about a phenomenon happening in the small town of Boone Creek in North Carolina, where ghosts are seen inhabiting a local cemetery, Jeremy knows he will be able to find the truth behind the lights that are seen glimmering on certain nights above the cemetery grou [...]


    20. I first read this years ago and chose to re read it because I am going to read the second book At First Sight I m not giving it a five because I feel some parts of the book dragged on a bit especially the beginning I wasn t drawn in as much as I usually am from his books I didn t feel a strong connection with the characters and parts of it was slow.But I still thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading the second book I enjoyed seeing Jeremy and Lexie fall in love and finally having [...]



    21. Classifica o 3,5 em 5 estrelasOpini o no blog thelittleangieblog.wordpress S tenho uma coisa a dizer, quase nada me surpreendeu neste livro Se pensava eu que finalmente tinha conseguido ultrapassar a minha crise com Nicholas Sparks este livro mostrou me que estou completamente enganada Parece que apenas gosto dos livros mais antigos do escritor, n o sei que se passa mas este livro n o foi nada o que eu esperava, no mau sentido.O enredo deveras interessante, tenho de admitir isso, e se houve cois [...]


    22. In True Believer, by Nicholas Sparks, Jeremy Marsh wants to prove that there are no such things as miracles, but a small town Southern sweetheart, Lexie Darnell, gives him reason to believe otherwise, so he takes a chance, and lets himself see what miracles the world has to offer True Believer takes place in the present day, in Boone Creek, North Carolina Boone Creek is a town as quiet as a whisper, where few exciting things occur The population of Boone Creek is miniscule, and most of the peopl [...]


    23. Ah, Nicholas Sparks sure knows how to cook up a love a story Although I don t think this is as good as the other Sparks books I read so far Dear John, A Walk To Remember, and At First Sight , I still think it is pretty decent.Jeremy Marsh is a big city sceptic who writes for a scientific magazine, uncovering the truth behind psychics, ghosts, and legends He is sent from New York City to the isolated small town known as Boone Creek to uncover the mystery of strange ghost lights that appear in the [...]


    24. I have been a fan of Nicholas Sparks books for years That being said, I had to give this book 3 stars for one reason only I actually did like the book, I thought it was a great story, it was well written as always, and it kept me wanting to see what was going to happen next A little predictable at times, but you have to expect that from a writer whose style you have memorized He really illustrates the settings, and pulls you into the romance of it all tears were shed on the pages However, I foun [...]


    25. I enjoy predictable love stories that have happy endings I found True Believer to be one of those stories, and for that reason, I really liked the novel At first, I thought this novel was difficult to begin reading The first couple chapters take place in New York and focus on Jeremy Marsh s business success However, when Jeremy travels down south to a small town in North Carolina, known as Boone Creek, the story starts to pick up pace I really like the stereotype of a small town filled with sout [...]


    26. Tears in the eyes, smile and laughter all along, butterflies in the stomach Nicholas Sparks definitely knows how to make his readers feel as his main characters do And I should definetely give a credit to his sense of humour which made me smile so many times Not one of his best books in my opinion but still a very addictive and cute love story I did like Lexie a lot, since I think this is how a woman should be, full of charm and mistery Well,and Jeremy is definitely the guy that every woman drea [...]


    27. The novel, True Believer, by Nicholas Sparks was a very good book Though it does take a few chapters to get your mind racing, What happens next What just happened , the book is a page turner from there on It kept me guessing until the very last sentence I have read many of Sparks other books and this book is something special I believe this book tells a story that, in many of his other books as well, can really happen This story isn t a piece of fiction with dragons and ghosts but has a taste of [...]
