    1. DEAD SOMETHING ALERT DEAD SOMETHING ALERT STOP READING THIS REVIEW NOW BECAUSE THERE IS A SPOILER OF SORTS HERE CONTINUE ON IF YOU DARE.Why do I read this crap when I know he s gonna kill someone off every time Screw you, Sparks


    2. Ok, usually I really like Sparks his books are enjoyable, quick reads that don t take too many brain cells and sometimes give you a few warm fuzzies.Now, I didn t put this together with True Believer until I started to write this review, so I was pissed throughout the entire book because there was NO detail about how they fell in love, so it was completely unbelievable it sounded like Jeremy was constantly trying to talk himself into believing he was in love I was listening to this one in the ca [...]


    3. I only ever pick up Nicholas Sparks because I lovedThe Notebook, but this time it was a mistake The three main events in the book are 1 Jeremy and Lexie are getting married, but someone is trying to break them up 2 Their baby could die or be born with a deformity 3 Ta da Neither of those happen Lexie just dies in childbirth instead But her death had nothing to do with the the threats to their relationship or the disease the baby didn t get, it was just a freak accident So by the end, the story s [...]


    4. Well, so far this book makes me want to die while vomiting Patently unoriginal and laden with cliches, this book is about a romance between 2 people in their thirties who have the emotional development of teenagers The characters thoughts and behaviors are trite, predictable almost always stereotypical This book is a Harlequin romance packaged as literature, except not as good.


    5. After reading many Nicholas Sparks books, I thought that he lost his magic I no longer cried for any of his books and my rating lessened to 3 4 stars So, when I first saw this book, it had boredom written all over it But little did I know that this book was that tear trigger of a book The guy is wicked He made me cry Uncontrollably I mean how could he do this I thought this book was gonna end with a happy note just like True Believer its first part But here I m crying like never before Why Why h [...]


    6. At First Sight Jeremy Marsh Lexie Darnell, 2 , Nicholas SparksAt First Sight is a romance novel by Nicholas Sparks, written in 2005 Set in North Carolina, United States, At First Sight is the sequel to Sparks previous book, True Believer , written in the same year At First Sight, was originally the result of a 45 page epilogue in True Believer Sparks editor thought this was too long for an epilogue, and damaged the effect of True Believer It was then that Sparks got the idea to write At First Si [...]


    7. Nicholas Sparks brings back the characters first introduced in True Believer Jeremy Marsh, a writer from New York City and Lexie Darnell, the small town, southern librarian In At First Sight, Jeremy and Lexie are preparing for their upcoming wedding shortly after Jeremy s move down to Boone Creek, N.C to be with her On top of the wedding stress, the couple is also trying to keep it under wraps that Lexie is pregnant.The book follows Jeremy and Lexie through the pregnancy, the subsequent purchase [...]


    8. Horrible book I didn t know Sparks had it in him I usually love his novelsey re easy, feel good reads But this one, ulgh, where do I start The characters especially Lexie were SO annoying through the whole thing Lexie wasn t willing to sacrifice anything to be with Jeremyhe had to move to Boone Creek, in the middle of nowhere, and do everything else on her terms Bought the house she wanted, the renovations she wanted, in the city she wanted etcd meanwhile, she didn t even seem grateful that he g [...]


    9. Save yourself 8 and get somebody to beat you with a stick, or run over you with a small car It will be the same feeling you get from reading this book, and at least then you might get a sympathy card or some flowers Not only was this book depressing, but the tragety was unrealistic, farfetched and unrelenting Somebody do the world a favor and buy Nick Sparks a prescription to Prozac.


    10. No s ni por d nde empezar a hablar de este desprop sito de libro En lo positivo me quedo con que Sparks mantiene su voz propia, esa que hace que una novela suya sea reconocible entre mil Y poco m s.En lo negativo, empecemos la traducci n y la edici n del libro deja mucho que desear Adem s de algunas faltas de ortograf a, hay una repetici n de expresiones que se hace insufrible ni tan solo , por ejemplo, aparece constantemente, y ni siquiera es una expresi n natural en espa ol Y hay errores de co [...]


    11. This book just didn t do it for me I found myself continuing to read it hoping that it would get better I thought that Sparks was trying to make a book out of nothinghe should have left these characters as they were at the end of True Believeread he dragged them along and it ended up being a disaster.1 I hated the constant fighting old are these 2 It s called communication.2 Alvinyou pig and lame.3 The ABSedless stress and making it seem just too dramatic.4 Killing Lexie REALLY After she grew up [...]


    12. I hated this book almost from the start First of all, Jeremy and Lexie meet, have sex, become pregnant, and get engagedl within six weeks He doesn t know her middle name, who her friends are, or about a dozen other things you should know about someone when claiming they are the love of your life He drops his entire life and moves from NYC to Boone Creek to live with Lexie because she refuses to live in NYC Which isn t a shock considering the rest of the book depicts Lexie as a self centered brat [...]


    13. I was kind of disappointed with this book It is about Jeremy, who meets Lexie while on a writing assignment Soon after, she becomes pregnant, and Jeremy arranges his life to be with Lexie he moves to her hometown, they purchase a house, and he attempts to get his new life with her in order I didn t feel much interested in the story, and it seemed kind of predictable The ending was sad, but it did little to make me feel connected to this book.


    14. At First Sight by Nicholas SparksJust like Jeremy and Lexie s union, this book is really rather a waste of time It puts you through a relationship from hell with no rewards in sight even if you manage to reach the back cover This couple s courtship and marriage is a dispiriting affair peppered with doubts, lies and Lexie laid emotional minefields that no intelligent man as Jeremy was portrayed to be would have tolerated for 10 minutes, never mind 277 pages Even the poor old baby that the two man [...]


    15. Sparks continues what he started in True Believer, not only with the story line but the wonderful twists This is an author who is growing on me Just when you think his story line is going to go down obvious paths he twists it around on you.


    16. I don t know what I was expecting when I started reading Nicholas Spark but it certainly was not this, not because it was astounding but ordinary Ordinary up to the point of bewilderment The writer has described things beautifully, the common problems in being a relationship,trust issues The anxiety and fear relating with starting a new life, marriage, kids and parenting Though things and events sometimes seems to get slower and tedious, but I like his way of describing feelings and emotions sim [...]


    17. Quer a leer esta bilog a hasta que descubr que Nicholas mataba a su personaje principal, Lexie, y encima, tild ndola de infiel, mala, mentirosa, y otras perlitas Me parece horrible que le hiciera ESO a un personaje como Lexie, que es todo bondad Encima, siempre debe morirse alguien Y por lo general, las mujeres se llevan la palma Pero Jeremy tiene suerte, su mujer se muere y l forma una familia feliz con otra mujer S , porque los hombres deben ser afortunados y las mujeres deben morirse S , Nich [...]


    18. I picked this up on a whim at the airport, on my way to see clients in Texas Up until then the only Sparks book I d read was Nights in Rodanthe I think I d received it as a selection of the month once when I forgot to return the slip Though I found the character descriptions to be a bit over the top, fantastical as it may have been I did enjoy the story So much so, that a couple of weeks later I was travling again and I picked up True Believer.These books certainly aren t challenging my intellec [...]


    19. This book was excruciating It seemed like Jeremy and Lexie were teenagers in their first relationship They did not talk to each other and were both so selfish I really hated Jeremy for how he was acting and that he was so focused on sex It was so annoying I wanted to read about their romance but they just fought all the time, we re winning and juvenile And then there was all the drama that was so unnecessary I couldn t care less Sparks should have left this story alone after the first book.


    20. This book was definitely better than Part 1 Overall a 3.75 I thought that Jeremy s sacrifice to essentially move to Boone Creek was a strong decision coming from a city boy, but this only proved that Lexie meant the world to him and their relationship got stronger throughout the book I loved how Jeremy carried himself with their alternating stresses, but the end of the book, definitely wrecked me Good read


    21. Ono kad do e do posljednje stranice i ne vjeruje da je kraj, a suze teku li teku Pa to samo mo e Sparks Divna, divna, divna



    22. Where to begin This book was atrocious I felt no connection to the characters at all I am usually a huge fan of Sparks and his stories Safe Haven and A Walk To Remember are two of my favorites and they will always be up there when it comes to great love stories This What a load of tripe First of all, all of the characters are densely stupid So much so that at times you will feel like you are a Harvard graduate when you re reading it The mayor is REALLY, REALLY, REALLY involved in everyone s pers [...]


    23. I really want to hurt Nicholas Sparks bc I m crying on Valentine s Day but i wouldn t stoop to that level WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY


    24. Edit First off, I have no idea there was a prequel to this and I absolutely haven t read it yet So just disregard any complaints or comments I ve made below, concerning lack of details Originally, my rating for this book was 2.5 stars but I couldn t do that here so I rounded it off Nicholas Sparks is a great author, no doubt about that But here s the thing His books have exactly the same plot but only with different characters and twists that would seem to make each of his books distinguishable [...]


    25. I enjoyed At First Sight This book is a great example of how two couples who hardly know each other, manage to make their relationship work Jeremy, who is a journalist, travels to Boones Creek, South Carolina to write his column on the Mysterious Lights As he was doing his column, he met Lexie, who talked about her dead parents and visiting the Mysterious Lights In the two weeks he was there, he fell in love with her and decided to propose to her Instead of coming back to New York with just a co [...]


    26. The followup to True Believer , if published together as one story it would have made a great novel But I liked it and enjoyed reading it You may need kleenexes to get through it There are few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he d never do he d never leave New York City never give his heart away again after barely surviving one failed marriage and most of all, never become a parent Now, Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, married to Lexie Darnell, the love of his life, [...]


    27. At First Sight was the best love story I have read Jeremy Marsh told himself that he would never give his heart away he also promised himself that he would never leave New York That all changed when he met Lexie Darnell he packed up and moved to Boone Creek, North Carolina He is also starting a new family of his own When he thinks everything is going good, he gets a chain email that changes everything Now he has doubts and doesn t know if he is in love as he thought he was I don t think young ki [...]


    28. This book is a romance between Jeremy, a successful New York magazine columnist, who falls in love with Lexie, a country girl, and moves to her neck of the woods away from the city The author delves into the dynamics of friendship, commitment, marriage, pregnancy and fatherhood It gave insights into the adjustments involved in entering and maintaining a serious relationship by centering on Jeremy s and Lexie s feelings as their relationship progressed The ending surprised me so I d say it is a g [...]
