Rating: 5/5 stars
Summary (from Goodreads):
This book has quickly become one of my favorite non-fiction books. In saying that I have not read nearly as much non-fiction books as I probably should have so saying this is my favorite doesn't overly mean much. I loved this book. It was a quick read and the pictures were so interesting. I learned about Nicholas Sparks as a person instead of just an amazing writer. I learned that his life wasn't easy, but he has an incredibly close relationship with his brother. They went through a lot together as children and adults, but through it all they remained close. I have to say I could not imagine spending three weeks with just my brother traveling the world, but I could imagine traveling around the world with my sister. I think in some ways the relationship between Nicholas and Micah is somewhat like the relationship between my sister and myself. It was also very interesting to learn how he started writing all his novels even during the hardest times in his life. He also mentions who the characters are named after or which person in his life the novel is about. Like most authors he plays off his actual life for novel ideas.The most important thing this book taught me is that even when times are hard you must go on for the people you love. Take every day one day at a time and cherish every moment you have. I would defiantly recommend this book to everybody especially Nicholas Sparks fan.
Thanks for reading
