As always, Nicholas Sparks takes us to the South and spins a wonderful tale. He does not disappoint in this story. I enjoyed the movie, but (as usually happens) I liked the book even more.

I liked how he tied up the ending. The paintings that were bought with love, ended up with a person “who Understood.”

This was my strategy to read this book.
I was engaged at the beginning of the book, then the story of Luke and Sophia started and I was not impressed. It was like being a fly on the wall in a high school classroom. I didn’t find substance in what I was reading.
So, I decided to read the book in a different way.
First: I read the end! Yes! I wanted to find out the connection between the young and the old couple.
Second: I read all the chapters of Ira and Ruth.
Third: I read all the chapters regarding Luke and Sophia.

The Longest Ride is a great piece of literature. It's about a girl in her early-twenties meeting a man that she loves. At the same time, a old man Ira gets into a car crash. His dead wife visits him in different ages as they go down memory lane together. I like this book because it's a sweet novel to read under a tree in a park during summer. It has romance and a bit of drama. A well written, interesting book.

Easy read that keeps you interested. The love story is touching and the way the 2 stories connected at the end made it even better. Ira and Ruth's story was captivating and warm. Recommend!!

I loved this book, so it was somewhat predictable the story between the two couples were enjoyable and the ending was amazing. I understood.

This was well written but it did not hold my interest enough for me to finish the book. This is probably less a reflection on the author's skill than of the fact that I don't often like straight romances.

p. 321 " What indignity the future would bring next? And God, in his wisdom, provided the answer. How about an accident?! I sometimes think God has an odd sense of humor."

p. 26 Ruth talking to Ira: “you are attractive because your heart is still beautiful. Your eyes are still kind, and you are a good an honest man. This is enough to keep you beautiful forever.”

"Have you ever been in love?"
"I'm not sure."
"If you are not sure, then you probably weren't."
