The Longest Ride – Waiting on Wednesday

New WoW

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill on her blog 🙂

This week I have chosen a book, from a very special author whom I am very fond of. It is Nicholas Sparks and I absolutely like his books and his way of telling a story.
His latest novel is going to be published on the 8th July 2014 and the description alone gives me goosebumps.


Ira Levinson is in trouble. Ninety-one years old and stranded and injured after a car crash, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together – how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families. Ira knows that Ruth can’t possibly be in the car with him, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that defined their marriage.

A few miles away, at a local bull-riding event, a Wake Forest College senior’s life is about to change. Recovering from a recent break-up, Sophia Danko meets a young cowboy named Luke, who bears little resemblance to the privileged frat boys she has encountered at school. Through Luke, Sophia is introduced to a world in which the stakes of survival and success, ruin and reward — even life and death – loom large in everyday life. As she and Luke fall in love, Sophia finds herself imagining a future far removed from her plans — a future that Luke has the power to rewrite . . . if the secret he’s keeping doesn’t destroy it first.

Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

Well, I am looking forward to reading this book, as it sounds amazing, very emotional and extraordinary. What do you think about it?
And which book have you chosen this week?
I am looking forward to hearing and reading your answers and picks 🙂

PS: At the end a little „newsflash“
As I have been hooked up with computergames by my best friend, there are a view game reviews coming up 🙂

    I quite like the films adapted from the novels of Nicholas Sparks. I have only read A Walk To Remember – I remember crying in a bus while reading it on my way to school. 😀 This one sounds good, might have to check it out if I come across it 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

    I think I may be an exception, I tend to avoid Nicholas Sparks. He writes beautifully, but I always cry when I read his work, so I avoid it. Hope you enjoy it though. And thanks for coming by my blog!
