As moving as his bestselling works of fiction, Nicholas Sparks's unique memoir, written with his brother, chronicles the life-affirming journey of two brothers bound by memories, both humorous and tragicIn January , Nicholas Sparks and his brother, Micah, set off on a three-week trip around the globe. It was to mark a milestone in their lives, for at thirty-seven and thirty-eight respectively, they were now the only surviving members of their family.
All Nicholas Sparks fan hey, this is his biography! This is my third book of Nicholas Sparks. I bought this because this is his only non-fiction book and it is partly his biography as well as a travelogue so it is like buying 2 books at the same time. I remember that the reason why I bought Message in the Bottle was that I saw the movie and I wanted to read and further enjoy the letters in the bottle.
Sadly, I am still not a fan. The scene was brief but moving and it was early this morning around 5 a. One is a slow-reader if you do not finish a Nicholas Sparks book in a couple of days. The reason why I am saying this is that there is nothing complicated in terms of plot and no big words in all the three books that I read so far.
I never had the chance to pick up the dictionary and expand my vocabulary courtesy of Nicholas Sparks. I think this is exactly what I hate about the books of Nicholas Sparks. You feel moved, your heart felt warm, you might shed a tear but after you have closed the book and think it over, you will feel cheated. The story feels false. Then reading this book, you understand the reason why.
He was a A student and it was because has the middle-child syndrome, i.
He was hardly making ends meet and he had to take his share in taking care of his 5 kids so he had to look for a way to earn money while staying home so he tried writing novels. His novels have been topping the New York Times Bestsellers list. Because he writes so simply that even morons can understand.
Then he makes sure that he has the formula that worked in the Notebook. His two earlier unpublished novels were not with that formula as the first one was the usual whodunit. There must at least one character who is dying or sick and there must be love in all the characters. Then there must be some positive family values that must give that good feeling for all women and Republicans.
No wonder, Nicholas Sparks has made his first million with just The Notebook and continue laughing on his way to the bank! This same formula is here in this book.
All the 3 children, Nicholas included, are just cry-babies and he is not ashamed to tell that. They just all cry and cry. Then tragedies and sickness are all in the family. Then there was Micah rebelling in his high school days and the parents still had to love him no matter what. It just feels so contrived. Too formulaic. As a consolation, even if Nicholas Sparks has been earning million from his books, unless drops this formula, I am sure that he will not win any Pulitzer, Booker Man or Nobel Prize.
His novels will never land in any Must Read Books that will be considered as classics that will transcend generations. This book is a just disappointing. Feb 08, John Paul Mahofski rated it really liked it. I sit back and listen to many in our field "librarianship" destroy this man.
He writes chick books not my words , he has no talent, he uses software templates, every story is the same, his career has been handed to him, he's so lucky. While what is true is that what sparks does is what many of us wish we could do; he finishes novels.
He doesn't just start them. And now that I've read this memoir I have come to realize that the man behind these novels that make me cry and laugh out loud has overc I sit back and listen to many in our field "librarianship" destroy this man. And now that I've read this memoir I have come to realize that the man behind these novels that make me cry and laugh out loud has overcome extreme poverty, unimaginable heartache, rejection, many failures, only in the end to succeed.
But his success is realizing what matters and constantly reminding his readers. This book does that unlike no other one I have read by him. It is not five stars. I thought the historical content was forced and often placed in because the content demanded it, but often interrupted the flow. I often though he oversold some of his struggles anyone sensible realizes his family wa sout of the poverty woods sooner rather than later, but he still felt he had to remind us of the humble beginnings.
Sep 20, Glenn rated it really liked it. I've made a vow I'm not a romance novel kinda guy. I'm just not. It's not that I have an unusually gruff exterior or anything like that.
It's just that they bore me and if I'm up for some romance, I'd rather migrate that energy into toward my wife than read about it and spend the energy, then treat her like a "buddy" later.
So, when I read this book, it appealed to me on different levels. I related to the author's family life. My parents d I've made a vow My parents died when I was young. I'd love to throw my cares to the wind and take a three-week "soul-searching" excursion.
Although I don't have siblings, I'd find the right person to do it with, and have many to choose from. Given that, this book delivered. Nicholas is a good writer, giving detail when needed and background to whet the appetite.
So, although I'll never close one of his staple books and wipe a tear, I did that on a few occasions with this one, and learned about some far off lands as well. Sep 21, Teri rated it it was ok. This is a tough book to review. It was really fascinating to me to hear about Nicholas Sparks' life. It was emotional and unbelievable that anyone could go through so much sadness in their life. As with most of his books, this one got me teary eyed a few times.
The story itself goes through his trip around the world with his brother, most of which I found a little boring. Then, intertwined is the story of his life, that part was good. I found myself skimming, or skipping all together, a lot of t This is a tough book to review.
I found myself skimming, or skipping all together, a lot of the trip part. It's kind of ironic that a trip around the world would make someone feel better, and be closer to their brother. If I were a millionaire, I would probably feel the same way. It seems a bit unrealistic for regular people to ever get to experience that type of adventure. Sadly, I would have probably enjoyed the book more it I were just hearing about his life growing up.
Overall, I think he needs to stick to fiction. That's where his true talent lies. Sep 15, Angie rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book for me had me going from laughter to melancholy, from sad and upset but overall I enjoyed this book and I can highly recommend it. It covers 3 weeks wheree nick and his big brother Micah go on a group trip around the world, visiting among other places as lalibela,Ethiopia, machu picchu, the temples of Cambodia, the inka pyrimids, Easter islands and other places like that.
In between he writes about his life growing up and all the strains and loss that he and Micah had to cope with. After This book for me had me going from laughter to melancholy, from sad and upset but overall I enjoyed this book and I can highly recommend it. After the loss of their parents the loss of their sister hit them hard, and Nick also had troubles at home with his second son. They got through all the loss and heart ache, by the brother s becoming even closer and with the help of their wives.
The book though was filled with humour and its gives a frank and honest view of the way his family grew up, Apr 29, Smrithiraj Puli rated it it was amazing Shelves: I am grateful to have selected this book during my 4 days of vacation. I just couldnt resist the book.
With the pace I was reading, I knew it would be finishing in a day and it did. The book starts off with Nicholas making plans to go on a trip with his brother and when they finally start out on the journey, its not only mesmerizing but also leads Nicholas to introspect on certain aspects of his life. I have had the privilege to have the wonderful places described by my famous author in this book I am grateful to have selected this book during my 4 days of vacation.
I have had the privilege to have the wonderful places described by my famous author in this book. At the same time was disappointed to know that Nicholas dint like India, though I must say he cannot know India by visiting just Jaipur and Agra. However, I must say that after reading this book, I would never miss a chance to visit Guatemala to see the Mayan civilization. And Cambodia with its Hindu temples at Angkorwat has also caught my attention, the way a visitor explained the meaning of what was depicted in the frescoes and paintings.
It kept me wondering that what history we know may never be completely true, but it would definitely tell what the civilizations in that era did with their time, and they revealed to us what they wanted us to know.
This book has made me laugh, cry, remember my childhood days, and most important of all, I have known how my favorite author has grown up. And one interesting fact I found out is that he is the middle child of his parents just like I am.

Some of the attention seeking moments from the author's life, were similar to that of mine. Trust me when I say, I also used to get A grades all through out my schooling, and used to do things to be that "not so troubling child" to my parents. Some of the interesting facts like Nicholas has written two horror genre novels which never were meant for publishing, and that his first romantic novel has been "The Notebook" which changed his economic conditions too and this made me feel that this author, of all the authors I might know, has deserved this moment and much more than that.
I have always thought that the books a person writes reflects his personality and his perspective of life, and it is true in every sense when you get to read this book.
Nicholas, nick named as Nicky, is a true romantic at heart. All the characters in his life are so understanding and he surely deserves them. The same reflects in all his books. Knowing that the character of Jamie Sullivan from the book "The Walk to Remember" has been based on the character of his little sister, "Dana", I was overwhelmed with that moment which is rare - tears and smile at the same time.
If you people knew how much I adore this book and the movie, you would know how much I wished I met his sister if she was alive now. As I write this review, I still have to read 4 more books of this author. A Bend In The Road 2. The Rescue 3. The Best of Me 4. True Believer After knowing that the book "The Rescue" is based on his kid, Ryan, this is the next book on my list and consecutively the other books.
I dont want to leave any book unread written by this author. In some ways, I have learned and felt deeply about the one feeling that is important in everyone's life - and that is "LOVE". Three Weeks With My Brother Oct 07, Nettie rated it really liked it. I loved this book because of it's relation to what I went through at the loss of my parents.
Not with my brother but, alone. There are no other siblings. A man and wife are truly a team and I am blessed and grateful to have that relationship with my husband. Death and Dying are not anything to be afraid of, if we live out every day with what God has given us Parents must be involved in the process of training, learning, and growing I would love to travel the world so that I can have the kind of experiences that Nicholas and Micah experienced for themselves in I learned so much and reinforced so many learnings that I have acquired throughout the last 50 years Jan 22, Dana rated it really liked it Recommends it for: I read this book because it meant alot to my sons.
They related to it and because of some tragedies in our lives I also could relate. It is the story of Nicholas Sparks and his brother and the importance of family. Even in the face of death and grief, there is strength to carry on when it is shared with loved ones. My main source of strength is Jesus and it is because of the hope I have in Him that I am able to contnue.
I don't always thrive, as this book encourages In the loss of my daughter, Miranda, it helps me to read about other's losses and how they dealt.
We all handle grief differently, Nicholas and Micah Sparks did also, but there is also a kind of unity that you feel with others who have been where you have These two brothers have a great bond, as my two sons do, and this story meant alot to me, primarily because it touched them.
Aug 15, Maxwell rated it liked it Shelves: I read this book about five years ago now. I read it while on a road trip with my family. I remember sitting in the back seat as we drove through Northern California into Oregon, while reading about Sparks' travels across the world with his brother.
