The Choice by Nicholas Sparks (Book Review)

Title: The Choice
Author: Nicholas Sparks
Rating: 5/5

“Alas! Another happy ending from Sparks.” – that’s what I mumbled as I finished reading the book. This was also the same book that I suspended reading when the conflict was starting to make sense. Knowing how Sparks works made me fear the ending and the reason why I somehow doesn’t want to end it yet. I was anticipating a “goosebumps” moments and some teary eyed moments too. And yes, I got them but this time, it’s tears of joy, because of a happy ending.

Just like Safe Haven, I ended reading this with a smile in my face. 🙂

It’s a story of a man named Travis and a woman named Gabby, who were given a chance to choose between what seem to be “right” and what is really shouting in their hearts – something they truly desire. Those choices that they made may be simple, but because of those, it has changed their future.

In life, we’d always say, “we don’t have any choice.” but in reality, we’ve always given that chance but because we need some sort of “justification” to our choices, and given all the circumstances, we made ourselves believe that we were only forced to. But at the end of the day, whatever our lives turned out to be, stemmed from our choices in the past.

When Gabby chose Travis over Kevin, she knows she was choosing the man she had dreamed of even if it doesn’t seem right at first. And when Travis chose not to let go if his true love, it was when he learned the value of the smallest things in life.

Quotes from the book:

Change is one of the inevitable laws of nature.

That’s the thing about being a product of a happily married parents. You grow up thinking you’re entitle to live it.

Travelling has less to do with seeing things than experiencing it.

I’d be a fool if I let you slip away without a fight.
