How I Read It: Audiobook/ Ebook
Dates Read: 6/18/19- 6/21/19
Why hello! Welcome to me being controversial. Okay, so I don’t want to use the word “hate”, but I strongly disliked the female main character, Lexie. I found her really annoying and frustrating. But bearing all that in mind, here’s my thoughts on the books.
This book follows Jeremy Marsh, a column writer for Scientific American, who has a tendency to investigate psychic and paranormal activities. When he hears of a cemetery in Boone Creek, NC that has “paranormal” lights at night, he goes to investigate. But soon he begins to fall in love with the librarian. The second book follows the months after the first book as their lives completely change.
Is it bad that I enjoyed the beginning of the second book because it showcased how difficult to be in a relationship that escalated that quickly? I noticed that this section is very similar to Two by Two, yet this book has a more positive ending than Two by Two. That (at least my speculation) seems to come out of Sparks’ love life, and his ending of his marriage. This is all complete hearsay, but that’s my best guess as to the reasoning.
I genuinely do not think that either of these books are memorable (in fact, I have these books listed as already read, yet I did not remember either of them before rereading them, and writing about the first book is still hazy though I read it a few days ago) and I doubt these books will ever get the level of recognition as some of his other books.
