I have never been one for romantic and sappy books. However, lately Nicholas Sparks’s writing has me in my feelings. Maybe it is because I have gotten married and had a baby within a year. I finally got the on the Nicholas Sparks fan train. There has been a couple of his books lately that I couldn’t start or finish. It has nothing to do with his writing. I just didn’t like the plot of the stories. The story has to grab my attention quick for me to finish or like the book. “Two By Two” got my attention very quickly! This book I listened to thanks to my local library. I couldn’t stop listening. The way he writes, you can just feel all the emotions he has the characters going through. It is amazing how he does that.
At the beginning of this book you think that Russell Green has the perfect life. Then all of a sudden he lost his job. Russell’s wife, Vivian, who was a stay at home mom decides it is her turn to get a job. The way he writes about Vivian… you end up not liking her at all. Well, her job leads to their marriage ending quickly. He learns how to start a business and raise a daughter while his life is spiraling out of control. It seems like he has hit rock bottom, but then something from his past comes back into his life. Is it for the best? The ending of course is a happy ending.
I gave this book 5 stars on Goodreads.
I will be reading more Nicholas Sparks books. What are you guys favorites?
