Amazing

I’ve loved all the Nicholas Sparks books i’ve read so far and this one didn’t fail to meet my expectations. It was amazing. I could really end the review right there but it really was the perfect mix of suspense and romance; the kind that just had me saying, “just one more chapter” like 10 times. Nicholas sparks really is a master at what he does. I absolutely loved it.

Sparks At His Best!

I have to say I own every Nicholas Sparks book he has every written and I must say most authors are only good at writing what they are known for, Stephen King/Horrors, Jonathan Kellerman/Thrillers, and I always thought Nicholas Sparks/Love Stories. But after reading "The Guardian" I was proven wrong. I was shocked at how great he wrote this book. I thought it wouldn't be as good as his others with just love stories. But boy was I proven wrong. He is just as good at writing thrillers as he is with his love stories. He does it so well I just couldn't stop reading it and there are some definite parts that will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up and make you want to look outside to see if someone is out there. So take this review from a advid Sparks reader and go out and get this book it will not dissapoint you in the least, It will keep you reading for sure.

Nicholas Spark is an excellent author.

I would read anything that Nicholas Sparks wrote, but I have to admit that this was one of my favorites. If you like this one, you must read "The Notebook" and "Nights in Roadanthe".

Can't Stop Reading

If you ever wanted to decide whether it is better to fall in love with an exotic, handsome stanger or your best male friend, then this is the book for you. The plot twist with every page. It leaves you wanting breathless, excited, and scared with each new twist. A MUST READ!!

Nicholas Sparks does it again!

The Guardian is a fictional book, a mystery, but at the same time a love story. It takes place in present time in a little town in North Carolina. The theme of the book is love, danger, and dealing with the loss of a spouse. It is about a women, Julie, who has lost her husband at a young age. He leaves her with a puppy, named Singer to watch over her. She feels like she is ready to start dating again and when she starts looking she finds a man named Richard but there is also Mike Harris, her husband's best friend. Soon, when Julie finally thinks she's happy, strange things start happening to her and she realizes if she doesn't take action soon, she will pay the ultimate price- her life. I loved everything about this book. It was most definitely a page turner, especially toward the end. I usually read the most before I go to bed. One night, I started reading around ten, and I literally could not put it down! I read a little over 200 pages, and I didn't stop reading until 3 a.m. when my mom finally came in and told me I had to go to bed because I had to get up in another two hours. The book put me through a lot of emotions as it went on, I was excited, happy, mad, scared and sad. Even though "The Guardian" is a fictional book, it deals with real situations. It made me more aware of some dangerous things that could happen in real life, to real people. Most people think "this could never happen to me", but this book shows it can. I think that this book targets many different types of people. Some people like action books, some like romance, but this books satisfies both wants and ties them together very well. The two elements in the story were perfectly balanced, and the way he paced the story, I never lost the slightest bit of interest. I enjoyed the novel and would definitely recommend it, I couldn't ask for more in a book.By: JB

BRAVO!!!!!!!!!

I just finished reading Nicholas Sparks latest work The Guardian...It was absolutely fantastic! It was so different from his other novels in that it was new ground for Sparks...it was a bit of a thriller. I found myself turning page after page and could not tear myself away from this book....of course that is how all of Nicholas's books are for me....but this one had the added element of suspense and surprise. There was still a love story involved as well. This book just is an outstanding examlpe of Sparks talents and shows he is capable of branching out into new territory with success.I found a bit of laugh out loud humor in this book which was a nice addition. Of course I also cried.....in the first few pages of the book if you can belive it....Sparks has a way of really getting to you with the crying.... and he didn't waste any time getting right down to business. I don't think I have ever read one of his books and have not shed a tear. I also found the characters to be so believable.With out ruining your reading experience I must add.....what an exciting ending!!!!!Buy this book as soon as you can and I trust you will not be disappointed whether you are familiar with Spark's works or not!!!!!!
