#1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with an emotionally powerful story of unconditional love, its challenges, its risks and most of all, its rewards. At 32, Russell Green has it all: a stunning wife, a lovable six year-old daughter, a successful career as an advertising executive and an expansive home in Charlotte. He is living the dream, and his marriage to the bewitching Vivian is the center of that. But underneath the shiny surface of this perfect existence, fault lines are beginning to appear...and no one is more surprised than Russ when he finds every aspect of the life he took for granted turned upside down. In a matter of months, Russ finds himself without a job or wife, caring for his young daughter while struggling to adapt to a new and baffling reality. Throwing himself into the wilderness of single parenting, Russ embarks on a journey at once terrifying and rewarding-one that will test his abilities and his emotional resources beyond anything he ever imagined.

I‘ve always been a fan of Sparks‘ cheesy romance novels. This one felt different. It was a beautiful story of a man‘s relationships with his family. I felt happy, sad, heartbroken, & even angry at times. 3.5/5 for me!

I‘m not typically a huge fan of Sparks. This book, though, I loved. I loved the main character, Russ, and his relationships with his sister, his parents and especially his daughter. There were pieces of this book that destroyed me, because of my own experiences, and while Sparks is known for doing that, I didn‘t feel this novel fit his typical formula. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

I had more time to read today. Spent time in the sun, relaxing and reading. Now it‘s time for a glass of Rosé, it is in season after all. ?? My Bookly app says I have about an hour of reading left before I finish this book.

I haven‘t read in so long! This is the least amount of time I have had to read in a long time. Work...work...work... I finally had some time tonight and got in almost an hour of reading.

I am really enjoying the brother-sister relationship in this book. My brothers are two of my closest friends, and I can see the three of us being there for each other in much the same way as Russ & Marge are. ❤️

I haven‘t read since Mother‘s Day! Crazy busy week, covering for 2/3 of our 3 person real estate team because the other two are gallivanting across France on a well deserved 15 day vacation. Prom for one kid & Confirmation for another this weekend, with mere hours between (only 3.5 hours of sleep last night). Finally sitting down to read for the first time in a week... 🙄❤️ Someone wants his ball. A mother‘s work is never done...

Is anyone else bothered by these types of inconsistencies? The main character tells us that “In February 2004 - I‘d been out of college for almost 2 years...” On the next page, the main character‘s father says that the character and his *older* sister “weren‘t around when Hugo hit in 1989.” If they weren‘t born yet in 1989, then he couldn‘t have been an adult, helping his dad prep for a snowstorm, in 2004. What am I missing?🤷‍♀️

Elizabeth2 If he meant they weren‘t “there” in 1989, where were they? If he graduated college in 2002, he would have been around 8 years old in 1989. Why wouldn‘t he have been home with his parents? 7mo

Not my kind of book. I was very disappointed. There was too much arguing. Too much drama. Too much happy ending. Divorce is not an easy subject to write about, but I would say Sparks got some of it right. Sadly my favorite character Marge gets sick and dies. Tragedy. Maybe I‘d give it 2 🌟🌟.

Audiobooks and building models. Even though I‘m not enjoying the audiobook (tagged library bookclub pick), it‘s fun to craft and listen to books. I finished this build today. It‘s called Eddie (Weird Oh).

April wrap up: overall I did better than I thought I would. I‘m working on my last audiobook of the month. It‘ll count toward April too so that‘ll bring my total to 13 books. I‘ve also made some good progress on Moby Dick. I‘m over 75% on that book. #ATB #aprilwrapup #reading

Got half-way into the book and realized my dislike for one of the main characters made me feel annoyed every time I picked up the book. Spent way too much on explaining the marriage than the “good stuff” that Nicholas Spark‘s is generally known for.

I felt I had to read this out of my love for cheesy Nicholas Sparks novels, as bad as they can be sometimes. But this was just okay. Spent way too much time on the demise of a marriage and not enough on the good stuff. Oh well.

This book was so much different than I thought it was going to be and so much better. I can‘t honestly say that I enjoyed it. It made me sad, it made me hurt, it made me dread the events coming. But it made me feel so much more than most of his books. This really blew me away. 5*

So, after much thought about what books I'd like to read to start my 2018 right, I couldn't help think about my stash of books I meant to read, but never got round to. I've always had a deep love for Nicholas Sparks' Novels- the way he writes is so beautiful, I sometimes forget I'm reading a book and not living in it. So what better way to start 2018, than with "Two by Two". Better get the tissues ready!

I wouldn't suggest buying this book, but just borrow it from the library. When I want to buy books, I look forward to rereading it or rereading sections. This one...while it was a bit of a page turner and of course touching and sad, I wish for a bit more depth into the characters, especially Vivian. I would really like a chapter of Vivian's voice.
I did appreciate more emphasis on the sibling and family dynamics
