At First Sight by Nicholas Sparks

Title: At First Sight
Author: Nicholas Sparks
Pages: 332
Rating: 5/5

Summary (from the nicholassparks.com): There were a few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he'd never do: He'd never leave New York City, never give this heart away after surviving one failed marriage, and never become a parent. Now Jeremy is living in the timy town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, engaged to the love of his life, Lexie Darnell, and anticipating the start of their family. But just as everything seems to be settling into a blissful pattern, a mysterious e-mail sets off a chain of events that will test the strength of Jeremy and Lexie's love. And as they cope with the doubts, fears, and reomance of the newly wed, Jeremy will discover and extraordinary truth: The emotion that can break your heart is sometimes the very one that heals it...

Review: I don't think I can say a bad thing about this book. Yet again, Nicholas Sparks gives us a timeless classic to love and cherish forever. Just like The Notebook and A Walk to Remember, I hope this one is made into a movie. I would see it a million times and cry every single viewing. Wow, I'm being totally cheesy, but I can't stop raving about this book!

First off, Jeremy and Lexie are the best couple ever. He is so understanding and loving and she is the perfect match for him. Boone County is the same quirky town we see in many other novels but in At First Sight, Nicholas Sparks made that tiny Boone County feel like home. Throughout the pains and the trouble you are stuck to the page. I read this entire 300 page book in one day. Maybe over the course of a few hours! Alongside Lexis and Jeremy, I cried and I fumed, I rejoiced and I sighed. Seriously, go to the library or the bookstore and GET THIS BOOK. I'm sure you will love it as much as I did.
