At First Sight

02nd March 2006

At First SightAfter my disappointment with True Believer, I was quite reluctant to pick up the sequel. At First Sight actually sat in my house for a week before I began reading, which isn’t normally how a Nicholas Sparks book is treated. But my love of Nicholas Sparks overcame my disgust for his previous book, and I soon dove in. I was pleasantly surprised. While the book wasn’t one of my favorites by any means, Sparks has redeemed himself. The characters seemed more likeable (even though they were the same characters from the first book), the focus on the paranormal was kept to a minimum, and there was even an element of suspense to the plot. One reason that the plot was interesting to me (which won’t of course be true for all readers) is that the main characters are expecting their first baby, and much of the plot focuses on that. My biggest complaint about the book (and this might be a spoiler for some) is that Sparks seems to have read James Patterson’s Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas and tried to imitate some major elements, without nearly as much success as Patterson had.
