the guardian by nicholas sparks

The summary:

Julie Barenson is just like any other ordinary girl. Except, he lost her husband when she was still young at age of 25 years old. Fortunately, her husband left her with two unexpected gifts; a Great Dane dog (Singer) and a promise that he will always be watching her. It took her some time to recover from her husband death but having Singer around really help her to be herself once again. And also ready to accept someone new in her life, again. There are two guys that really take her attention, after a few are just wasting her time. It’s either Richard Franklin, a handsome engineer who really treats her like more than a woman or Michael Harris who is her husband's best friend. The choosing thing supposes to lead her to happiness that she long awaited. It is normal when you get to choose but it’s way not normal if the one of you has to choose is a psychopath..

My review:

It took me quite some time before I wanted to read his book. This is my first time to read Nicholas Sparks novel. And to tell the truth I’m a bit picky when it comes to read other new authors works. However, the guardian really takes my heart away.. i like how the story was established. Sparks really know how to attach readers to read the books till the end without a minor flaw..the first half of the book tells you the development of julie and richard, as well as julie and mike's relationships..i thought it just like another mills and boons story instead you are not going to believe what will happen next, after julie turned richard really scared me to death imagining richard (the psychopath) hunting and tracking her down to make her his..i'm really angry with richard all the time, whenever i read his doings to hurt people, catches my nerves when it is the richard part..moreover the way he tried to kill singer, the clever dog! apart from that, the romance creation between julie and mike were really sweet, how they joked and teased each other...i found the story is really excellent..a combination of romance and suspense, and a worth reading =p

My rating: 4.5/5


  1. This book sounds rather interesting, I've read a few by Sparks and he didn't seem to disappoint me in any! Glad to see that you love his writing as well!

    I just finished reading The Devils Wear Prada myself. The book was kinda lame and I'm glad that now I can give undivided attention to The Pact. I'll surely write a review on this one!

  2. I adore Nicholas Sparks. Glad you like this one!

  3. Sparks never fail to pull heartstrings. I'm glad you enjoyed this one!

  4. @ shy= the book was indeed superb..i'm going to read handle with care next after the narnia.can't wait to see how the book will entice me.. =p

    @ steph=i think i'm going to find his other novels after this..a walk to remember perhaps, since i love the movie =p

    @alice =this was my 1st time, but i think i'm going to love his other books as well like you did =p

  5. Definitely include "The Notebook" as well. One of his best I've ever read! Made a great movie too =)

  6. of course..i've been thinking that one too.. =p

  7. Oooh.. I don't know if you noticed this but there is a promotion on MPHOnline for Sparks' "Dear John" :D

  8. I have mixed feelings about sparks after what he said about cormac mccarthy winning the pultizer. I have only read one of his books. I might give this one a try.
