If you have read one of my previous reviews by Nicholas Sparks called The Notebook, you will know that the Notebook is one of my ultimate favourite love stories.
The Wedding is supposedly a sequel to the notebook and it is about an ordinary man named Wilson, who has neglected his wife and finds it hard to show her how he feels. He is about to lose his wife and doesn’t know what to do to fight his wife, he seeks advice from his father in law, who happens to be Noah, the character from the Notebook. So instead of getting advice, Noah makes Wilson see what has always been in front of me and together they come up with a plan to save Wilson’s marriage.
Wilson’s wife, Jane, has become very unhappy over the years, after almost 30 years of marriage, it actually started when Wilson forgot their 29th anniversary and as the year went by, and Jane battled with the decision to leave Wilson. Because she realised that their marriage hasn’t been improving and the way they were living with each other is not the way a married couple should live, also this coming from parents who was the epitome of true love.
I have to admit that the story was a little bit slow in the beginning and maybe not as engaging as The Notebook, it was well written and I did enjoy reading this novel. And if you a romantic at heart, Sparks will definitely be able to pull your heart strings with this novel.
If you are a Sparks fan, please do read this novel and if you are not and are in the slightest bit curious on how Wilson is planning to save his marriage (trust me, it was a very beautiful idea), then still read this novel.
Let me know what you think. Thanks for reading xxx
