    Just know, as a longtime fan of Nicholas Sparks, this wasn’t an easy review to write and trying to sugarcoat my feelings seems pointless. So, I'm just going to put it out there—I didn't like this book.Similar to See Me, this has an entirely different feel than his greats. I think he deserves some credit for branching out and trying something new—telling the story of a couple falling apart, rather than falling in love—but it didn’t work ...

    4.5 "tender, domestic, wholesome" stars !2017 Honorable Mention Read This is my first Nicholas Sparks and it will not be my last. Although formulaic and predicable the book is filled with such genuine sentiment, good values and old-fashioned deliciousness.The characters are not subtle, enigmatic or complex. What you see is what you get. Middle class folk needing a paycheque, a hug, a home. The situations are real and the dilemmas are challenging....

    4.5 Stars!!! I don't know if I would label this a romance book because it was so much more than that. Fantastic book!!!

    Desde el inicio del libro que no terminó de convencerme: eso no quiere decir que sea una mala historia, es buena y triste; tal vez como una de esas películas que ponen los sábados por la televisión. Es decir, está muy bien escrita y estructurada, sus personajes están muy bien perfilado y hasta llegas a odiar a uno de ellos, casi toda la novela. Pero... Supongo que es más emocional que romántica (Lidia, tenías razón:))

    Two "buy" Two recommendation. .....Romance Lovers - BUY - Something ElseI hesitated reading this book due to the many one star reviews, but I am a loyal fan and have read everything Nicholas Sparks has ever published and didn't want to stop now. Yes, in agreement with many reviews, this book is a total departure from his usual guy meets girl and falls in love premise. So it was a difficult one for me to rate, waffling between two and three stars,...

    “Two by two,” “they came in pairs, from all over the world.” It took me a few hours to digest the story after I finished reading it. It was a novel full of heartbreak, at times bittersweet but also with a great amount of love and healing power. “It’s about someone who walks into your life, says I’m here for you, and then proves it.” The tale begins with a recently married young couple, Russell and Vivian Green, who are expecting ...

    I won this book in the Goodreads giveaways. Sadly, I had to DNF it. I've enjoyed all the other Sparks books I've read so far, but this one isn't for me. Honestly it's dull. I can't get into it and I hate the characters. Russell is an annoying people pleaser and his wife Vivian is a...well...rhymes with witch. The plot drags and I just had to give up on it. I'm sad because I really wanted to like this one, but it's just not for me.

    4.5 "Putting Life & Love in Perspective" Stars for the story!Please note this book will make you cry! And though there is a romance embedded in this story, this book should really be classified as fiction (like women's fiction but without any humor). Perhaps what struck me the most is that: although it's told from a man's perspective, it could equally apply to a woman. To get the full benefit of this story, however, you must will yourself through...

    3.5 stars https://mrsbbookreviews.wordpress.com/Two by Two, the latest release from international bestselling author Nicholas Sparks, was an auto buy for me. I always rush out to buy each new book Sparks releases, as his familiar love lost – love found formula, with a few dips in the road thrown in for good measure, gets me every time. Two by Two does contain the classic ingredients that we have come to love about a Nicholas Sparks novel but Tw...

    I'm giving this 2 stars strictly because he's Nicholas Sparks and 20 years ago I read the Notebook and Message in a bottle and he captured everything I wanted in a romance...and he is a male writer, I was sold! I have read almost every one of his books since - some were awesome and some were not but he still remained the King of Romance. His Memoir was one of my favorites!Now, I don't want to pick on his personal life - but I feel like it's so re...

    There is SO much I could/would/want to say about this book.I'm trying to keep it short...ish. ☺First of all we have to remember that this is the 2nd NS books post divorce. And just like the last one See Me, this one, too, is very different from his older books.You usually could depend on a NS book to be moving, sad, romantic, adorable and people were always dying. And a lot of that we have in this new book too. But it's still completely differe...

    4.5 stars.While it is many years since I read a book by Nicholas Sparks, I am very happy to have picked up Two by Two, it kept me reading into the night until I had finished it.It is narrated by Russell - husband to Vivian and father of London. He is a wonderful father, but somehow his relationship with Vivian has been in a bit of free fall, without his awareness. He is a romantic, a people pleaser - he is always trying to give her what she wants...

    Coming from a die hard NS fan (me!) - I have to say this one truly disappointed me. What has happened to Nick?

    I love most of the Nicholas Sparks novels. As renowned as he is in his storytelling talent of converting his books into worthy and amazing tear-filled movies, I was very disappointed with this one. I wouldn't exactly say that it's not worth reading, because it does have a lot of good marital and family building advice; I just thought the story took a turn. All of Sparks' characters usually have personality to them to give fervor for further readi...

    “Two by Two” is the latest novel by Nicholas Sparks. In true Sparks’ fashion, it is romantic, sappy and predictable. It is also, delightfully charming. In “Two by Two”, we are introduced to Russell Green, an advertising executive who has a happy and seemingly perfect life with his gorgeous wife and young daughter. Soon though, Russell’s life is turned upside down when he loses his job and his wife files for divorce. Russell is soon th...

    I think this book is probably a result of NS signing a 3 book contract or something and even though im sure he knew it was not that good (compared to his previous books, not including SEE ME because that was awful too) he was more than likely under pressure to produce something and quickly. I read the E-book and the editing was sooooooooo freaking awful that it actually pissed me the F#&*! off that someone didn't take the time to edit the book pr...

    If you go into this book expecting the usual type of Nicholas Sparks’ love story, then you may be disappointed. It took me a little while to settle into this one. Initially when I met Russ, in the incident when Vivian was having the baby, I thought he was a bit of a vain idiot. However as the story goes on and I learned more about Russ, I came to see a different side of him. And Vivian. The world changes for Russ when he decides to go out on hi...

    This is a difficult review to write. I've been a lifelong fan of Mr. Sparks and have actually read every single one of his books. While they definitely aren't my favorite reads of all time, I have come to appreciate his work for what it is-- a simple, basic and lovely story. However, there are things about this book that I just can't look past. It's his longest book, and yet the book that didn't need to be even half as long. While I ended up liki...

    3.5 stars, rounded up because the characters really stayed with me, even days after I finished this.32 year old Russ Green seems to have the picture perfect life...a beautiful wife, Vivian, adorable 6 year old daughter, London, a successful career as an advertising executive and a stunning home in Charlotte, close to his mother and father as well as his older sister, Marge and her partner Liz. Anyone looking in would think that he's living the dr...

    *** This turned out to be one of the best books I’ve read. I can relate to it in many different ways and I think everyone could enjoy this book because it has so many life lessons. This book taught me a lot and had me tearing up but also laughing a lot. My first assumption of the book was wrong and it turned out to be such a positive and amazing book!

    4.5*Muito bomJá há algum tempo que não pegava num livro de Nicholas Sparks, mas depois de lida a sinopse e as primeiras páginas de Só Nós Dois fiquei completamente rendida à história de London, Vivian e Russel. Mais do que um romance lamechas a que Sparks já nos habituou, este seu novo livro é realmente tocante porque aborda vários temas como amor, traição, dedicação a um filho, doença... chorei em algumas partes (felizmente estav...

    Wow I honestly don't know how to feel about this one I felt like I reading and reading but actually getting nothing in return from the book I felt like i was waiting patiently for Russ to stand up to Vivian it was practically like abuse they was she treated him it continued throughout the book and also the fact that he just listened and practically agreed with her made it worst it felt like she was just making all the decisions and at the end she...

    I hate that heifer with a passion I cannot express with words alone. Good thing Vivian is a fictional character because I would so go hunt her down and dog slap her! Ugh! HATE. HER. OK, now that I've got that out of the way, I feel a tiny bit better. This book is so good! Really! It's fiction but it's not. It's incredibly realistic and very believable. It's NOT a romance book though. If you are looking for a love story, this book is not for you. ...

    Another great book by Mr. Sparks!I feel like it's been a while since I read an emotional book because this one took so many shots on me. Geeze, Russ and London's relationship was definitely goals! Kind of reminds me and my relationship with my dad. I didn't like Vivian at all and I LOVED Marge. Besides all of that lovely information, you will cry or shed a tear at one point in this book. Nicholas Sparks is some sort of tear wizard basically askin...

    Glad I got this at the library and did not waste the money on purchasing it. Probably one of the more disappointing books by Sparks. Long and drawn out and the male character was sooo wimpy, I thought. I basically made myself finish it.

    4 StarsI really love Nickolas Sparks and his writing. When I read this book it was different for him. The writing was really good. I am kind of glad that he kind of change this up a bit from his other books that he has written before. It was really not what I was excepting from him but it was still really good. I would say that if you don't like to read any Nickolas Sparks books then this would not be a book for you. If you like to read Nickolas ...

    I’ve been a Nicholas Sparks fan since the late ‘90s, so I was excited to read Two By Two as soon as I could get my hands on it. Compared to his high intensity novels, such as Safe Haven and See Me, this one is more subdued. There are some heavy and sad moments, but there’s a balance of joy and romance, as well. He addresses the family dynamic from the man’s perspective and explores the things that can go awry when trying to find balance. ...
