Book Review: True Believer by Nicholas Sparks

Paperback, 465 Pages
Published by (Grand Central Publishing) on March 1, 2007[Author's Website] [Buy it]

Summary: Jeremy Marsh is a born skeptic and science journalist who specializes in debunking the supernatural. When he hears about ghostly apparitions in a cemetery in Boone Creek, North Carolina, he leaves his beloved New York City for this small, rural town-and what his instincts tell him coud make a great story. What he doesn't plan on is meeting and falling hopelessly in love with Lexie Darnell, who is sure of one thing: her future is here in Boone Creek, close to the people she loves. Now, if the young lovers are to be together, Jeremy must make a difficult choice: return to the life he knows in New York, or do something he could never do before...take a giant leap of faith.

My Review: This was the first book by Nicholas Sparks I have ever read so I could not compare it to his others. I, however, did enjoy this book. I wasn't as interested in the love aspect of the book, as I was in what he did for a living. Trying to figure out what the lights in the cemetery are intrigued me, and I think that is why I liked the book as much as I did. If it was just a love story, I wouldn't have enjoyed it so much.

Stars: 3/5


  1. This is a great site! I've never read any Nicholas Spark books, but I've heard mostly good things. You'll have to read another one and see if it's any better =)


  2. I read one other one and really liked it :) I plan on reading all of his books. My sister read them all and loved them so I probably will too! :)
