Description

From number-one New York Times best-selling author Nicholas Sparks comes a love story that explores the deepest mysteries of all, those of the heart.

Jeremy Marsh is the ultimate young New Yorker. He's also an expert on debunking the supernatural. When he receives a letter from Boone Creek, North Carolina, about ghostly lights appearing in a cemetery, he can't resist driving down to investigate. 

Here, in this tightly knit community, Lexie Darnell runs the town's library. Disappointed by past relationships, she is sure of one thing: her future is in Boone Creek, close to all the people she loves. From the moment Jeremy sets eyes on Lexie, he is intrigued. And Lexie, while hesitating to trust this outsider, finds herself thinking of him more than she cares to admit. 

Now, if they are to be together, Jeremy Marsh must do something he's never done before: take a giant leap of faith. A story about taking chances and following your heart, True Believer will make you, too, believe in the miracle of love.

Problems

28 minutes into chapter 2, the sound crackles and it loses a section of the story. Story slow in beginning but only at Chapter 2 so hoping gets better. Will review again in end or if anymore dead silence. UPDATE...Finished it and loved the story. Issues throughout with crackling due to recording though. Not impressed with that.

good book but

I don't care for the narrator portraying the opposite sex voice, just doesn't sound realistic

What’s with the weird music?

The music starts at weird times and continues far too long. It doesn’t fit with the story. I’m having trouble moving past this to listen to the story.

A Great Read

I finished this in two days, and two days later, I started listening to it again. I have read or listened to the majority of Nicholas Sparks' books, and this is one of the best! The plot it's self is a bit lacking, but the author makes up for it by how well the characters are written. I laughed in spots and was close to a tear in others. I would say this is a must read!

Interesting, but......

Ever see the movie "Doc Hollywood" with Michael J Fox? Well, True Believer is a play on that movie. The "city" guy comes to the "country" town... falls in love with the "country" girl and they try to figure out who moves so they can both be together. I felt like I was listening to the movie script. I was a bit disappointed. Sparks is generally a writer who I enjoy and keeps my interest. I DID enjoy the book.... but again, I felt like the storyline was similar and very predictable. It was an easy listen..... and it occupied me on the drive to/from work.

Just OK

I usually enjoy Nicholas Sparks to the fullest. Yet this book was not my favorite. It was just alright. I think I was spoiled by many of his others. This book was a little slow and not as captivating. It was an ok read.

Ready...Set...YAWN.

Nicholas Sparks is red-lining on the "Lifetime: Television for Women" one-dimensional scale. The characters are unlikeable and unremarkable. The interaction between Jeremy and Lexie is banal:

"I think about you a lot," said Jeremy.
"No, I think about YOU a lot said Lexie."
"You're a schmoopie." said Jeremy
"No YOU'RE a schmoopie." said Lexie.

Take your $20.99 and spend it on corn starch -- trust me, it will much more satisfying.

Predictable

If you're a fan of very predictable love stories and if Audible lowered the price of this book to $5 or less I'd say go for it. I was disappointed by how predictable the story line was, and how quickly the author disposed of the supernatural aspect of the mysterious graveyard lights. I was hoping for more mystery entwined with a love story and this book just didn't deliver.

True Believer -- Not!!!!

Being an avid Sparks listener, I with great anticipation downloaded this lastest title. The story line is blase at best. The narration leaves much to be desired. I can only hope that Mr. Sparks' next offering returns to his old style and format.

Good Book

This is a good book but not nearly as good as all of the rest he has written. I would still recommend this book. This is a very realistic fiction type book. Very believable.

dissapointing

Beyond the REALLY annoying background music, this was a really disappointing book. i typically love nicholas sparks book, but this was not up to par. Disappointing plot, disappointing characters.
