Noah rebuilt the old house just to fulfill his promise to Allie, he even tried to sell it but he refused to accept the offer even if the offer is more satisfactory. He is not only gifted as an author but also has depth in showing what is truly important in our lives-- family, values and our spirituality. In the movie he Luke had very little interaction with Ira. I would highly recommend you read the book. Though it is shown that it still isn't enough for her.
The first is about Ira Levinson, an old widow who became stranded after crashing his truck down an embankment. Suffering multiple injuries, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes and comes into focus beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. He believes in true love and destiny and he clearly shows that through his novels. Overall I enjoyed this book, not my favourite Nicholas Sparks book, but then again, not the worst! The Longest Ride is a novel of life and love. Plot After being trapped in an isolated car crash, the life of elderly widower Ira Levinson becomes entwined with that of young college student, Sophia Danko and the cowboy whom she loves, named Luke.
The novel is told through the perspectives of these three characters as they go through their lives, both separately and together. The accounts of a hard working ranch life are also well done. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. This is a small town, and his brother is legal guardian so there is no way they will win in court. Chance meetings that have such a huge impact on the direction that life takes are part of the story. Nicholas also writes books that are really sensitive and does end in a tragedy, but you feel. Nicholas Sparks is a very famous author! As he struggles to stay alive, Ira listens to Ruth talk to him about the many, mostly wonderful years they spent together.
In A Walk to Remember the main character Jamie ends up dying from cancer and it just so happens that Sparks has a sister who died from a long battle of cancer just like Jamie. They are actually nothing alike. I like that he writes about true and lasting love. I don't know how Nicholas Sparks does it, but this book jumps around, but feels beautifully smooth. But when Maria Sanchez crosses paths with him on a rainswept night in North Carolina, his plans are upended in a way that will rattle the foundations of his carefully structured life. In the present day, Sophia asks old Ira if he would like her to read another letter but as he is crying he asks her to do it another time. The different narrators make each story their own as the one is telling their story.

My town's library is tiny and has a miniscule selection of audiobooks--except for Nicholas Sparks' books, apparently. Well, why would I even listen to an audiobook if I can read a book from a much larger selection? 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. All in an effort for him to hold on just a bit longer because he still had unfinished business to do. Then we have this other story, Ira and Ruth.
Sophia receives a call one day and is notified that Ira has died, she starts crying but is invited to an invitation only auction for his art the following week. Sophia is a typical nerdy college student. While the portrait is not shown, a picture of Ruth and Ira stuck to it is. Who cares he went to war or that he is poor? Why would a t At one point I would have given this book 5 stars based on the love story and the depth of the relationships. . 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.
I very much enjoyed both of these parallel love stories. The relationship grows very fast since John has to return to Germany in a week. Keep that in mind when you read this book. Luke rides the bull, but he walks away from his career. Next he is shown in the hospital, and while he is still alive he is sent home but the reason is not yet known. A year later after recovering, he starts riding again and meets Sophia Danko after she attends the show. Thankfully, The Longest Ride was absolutely perfect! This is my first narration by January LaVoy and she is fabulous.

The Notebook takes place in New Bern, North Carolina, in the years 1932, 1946, and the present day, which is perfect for this novel as it adds an extra spark of romanticism, since the beach naturally carries an air of budding love. You can check out my review on this book here. On the ride home, though it's pouring outside, Luke notices some missing rails on a bridge, reverses and runs towards a car- It's on fire, and an elderly passenger is inside.
I loved the movie nonetheless. I'm thinking the Notebook, how it took you back in time. Ira decides to help against the warning of a colleague. Some of the critics referred to this movie as a cliché. I can't wait for the next book, even though I know it will be awhile in it's making, I will be waiting anxiously. There was some buildup with not much climax. His stories could be real life experiences which in turn elicits strong emotions from readers.
I will not recommend The Longest Ride if you're looking for an epic love story to read; you'll be tremendously disappointed if you do. The final letter and the great twist at the end Any additional comments? As these storylines progress, we get to know these two couples and all the while ponder how Sparks will merge their lives. This Analysis of The Longest Ride fills the gap, making you understand more while enhancing your reading experience. The chain of events that leads to him possessing the photograph and finding the woman pictured in it is the stuff of love stories only a master such as Sparks can write. I think this is one reason Ira was one of my favorite characters. The love Ira has for Ruth was just so beautiful. Sophia Danko, a Wake Forest College senior, meets a cowboy named Luke.
