The Longest Ride
The Longest Ride | Nicholas Sparks
In the tradition of his beloved first novel, The Notebook, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with the remarkable story of two couples whose lives intersect in profound and surprising ways.Ira Levinson is in trouble. Ninety-one years old and stranded and injured after a car crash, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together - how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families. Ira knows that Ruth can't possibly be in the car with him, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that defined their marriage.A few miles away, at a local bull-riding event, a Wake Forest College senior's life is about to change. Recovering from a recent break-up, Sophia Danko meets a young cowboy named Luke, who bears little resemblance to the privileged frat boys she has encountered at school. Through Luke, Sophia is introduced to a world in which the stakes of survival and success, ruin and reward -- even life and death - loom large in everyday life. As she and Luke fall in love, Sophia finds herself imagining a future far removed from her plans -- a future that Luke has the power to rewrite . . . if the secret he's keeping doesn't destroy it first.Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

One of only two Nicholas Spark's books I have read. He is a little too sappy for my tastes. Though I enjoyed this one.

jb72 I‘ve only read one of his books and I didn‘t really like it. 2mo
TheSpineView @jb72 I read also read the The Notebook and didn't like. So I have not read anymore. 2mo

4/5 stars. I loved this movie, and because of that i picked up the book. I loved the two different relationships that you are reading about, however the movie makes you believe that they are more intertwined than they really are, and that was somewhat disappointing. This is still one of my favorite Nicholas Sparks though.

I saw a post for #ReadingUSA2019 yesterday. I would like to do that eventually, but I have several reading challenges for this year.
I decided to do a reading across your home state instead. I haven't decided how many of these I'm going to do yet. #NorthCarolina #NC #GroveParkInn #WakeForest
First up is The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks. I like the movie & I'm sure the book will be even better.

“Remember me with joy, for this is how I always thought of you. That is what I want, more than anything. I want you to smile when you think of me. And in your smile, I will live forever.”-Nicholas Sparks, The Longest Ride

I‘m not crying, you‘re crying! Nicholas Sparks has a way with writing that will bring you to tears, whether you like the book or not. I don‘t dislike his books, I just find them simply, “Eh.” But I LOVED ‘The Longest Ride‘!

Quirkybookworm Oh, I cursed the authors because of the endings!! I stopped reading his books for 3 yrs now. 😳 1y
books.and.fluff @Quirkybookworm Have you read this one? 1y
Quirkybookworm No, I swore off his books!! 1y
books.and.fluff Well if you ever decide to try to read them again, I‘d suggest this one. It has a sweet ending. 1y

To my surprise I loved this book. It was a little slow in places but definitly got better. The ending was really heartwarming.
I'm still skeptical as to reading another N.Sparks novel.

Coloring and an audiobook when I should be doing homework or studying for finals. 🙈 I really needed a good audiobook to get me back into listening to them after the last few burnt me out. This one has definitely done the trick. I've already seen (and loved) the movie, but I am really liking the book. (Perhaps even better than the movie, as usual 😜)

britt_brooke Pretty! 3y
ramyasbookshelf What coloring sheets are those? Sooo pretty! 3y
Kenziejo @ramyasbookshelf Its a coloring book called "Mandalas Color By Number Coloring Book" I love it. There are so many pretty pages. 3y

Nicholas sparks never disappoint me. I just can't believe that I doubted him my favorite Author.
anyway I ended up loving this story so much and of course I couldn't stop crying.
I loved everything about it. and the fact that there is always a lesson you can learn by the end of any book by the amazing Nicholas Sparks.

Some of the Stories Ira told where a little boring, but I just adored the ending and how he showed how much their painting collection's value didn't matter as much as another day with his Ruth, cried at the end. Book is definitely better than the movie but then again when is it not.😂

It took me all day to decide. My #mancrush is Scott Eastwood. I'm not a huge Nicholas Sparks fan, but I surely didn't mind watching this movie 😍🔥🔥

MaerDavid So your writing on a books app how you don't like an author but how you didn't "mind" watching the movie... hmmmm anyone see the problem here? 3y

I love the two stories and I love Luke. The story of Ira and Ruth is beautiful and heartbreaking. Luke
and Sofia's story is more intense but equally lovely.

Rating: 5/5.

Nicholas Sparks is a genius. This book has two love stories that got connected through a situation. All I know is, I love it so much, okay? Definitely ine of my Sparks favorite. Also, the movie is amazing.

I really loved this movie, but I found the book drawn out. However, it might just be my taste, I always find Nicolas Sparks books too long. (Exception to Safe Haven) I'm just not that big of a fan of his writing style. The story is good, but I felt bored throughout the book.

I just watched the movie based on the book and it was so different. I will say that the story of Ira and Ruth was spot on.
