Ira Levinson is in trouble. At ninety-one years old, in poor health and alone in the world, he finds himself stranded on an isolated embankment after a car crash. Suffering multiple injuries, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes and comes into focus beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together - how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families. Ira knows that Ruth can't possibly be in the car with him, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that defined their marriage. A few miles away, at a local rodeo, a Wake Forest College senior's life is about to change. Recovering from a recent break-up, Sophia Danko meets a young cowboy named Luke, who bears little resemblance to the privileged frat boys she has encountered at school. Through Luke, Sophia is introduced to a world in which the stakes of survival and success, ruin and reward -- even life and death - loom large in everyday life. As she and Luke fall in love, Sophia finds herself imagining a future far removed from her plans -- a future that Luke has the power to rewrite . . . if the secret he's keeping doesn't destroy it first. Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.… (mer)

At times reading the book felt like I was on "the longest ride," but overall it is a sweet love story with a slight twist at the end. ( )

I loved this book as I have all of Sparks' other books. He creates characters you care about and stories that make you believe in all the good in the world. I fell in love with Luke, Sophia, Ira and Ruth immediately and I thoroughly enjoyed following their story. When I saw how it all came together I gasped and sat up straight to finish the book. I will continue to be a loyal follower of this author's work. ( )

Perhaps it wasn't the best choice to start reading [b:The Longest Ride|17407748|The Longest Ride|Nicholas Sparks|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1367536453s/17407748.jpg|24248331] immediately after [b:The Brothers Karamazov|4934|The Brothers Karamazov|Fyodor Dostoyevsky|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1427728126s/4934.jpg|3393910]... Compared to [a:Fyodor Dostoyevsky|3137322|Fyodor Dostoyevsky|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1435749299p2/3137322.jpg], [a:Nicholas Sparks|2345|Nicholas Sparks|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1332884095p2/2345.jpg]' story felt as thin as air.

Stuff just happens and nobody really cares. There's a total lack of internal thoughts or dilemma's. The whole thing read more like a movie script than a novel.

Overly simplistic, too predictable and just plain average love stories.

I loved the movie The Notebook (perhaps for exactly the same reasons), but for The Longest Ride, a book really is underutilised a medium to contain it in.

Disappointment from the first to the last page. :-( ( )

The thing that sucked most about this book is that it could not be set in any other country because no other country forces their citizens to go into poverty in order to stay alive -- socialized medicine is a real thing that works and if America had it, this book could not have been written.

So, long story short ...

This is a great fluff book for a quick vacation read -- there are easy places within the book to pause and do something else but the storyline still makes you want to come back and see how things progress. When I was about half way through, I thought I had the storyline mapped out and was pleasantly surprised by the twist, which kept things interesting (but, again, that twist would not have worked in any other country).

It's also super helpful if you remember that 20 year olds are incredibly stupid and it is a work of fiction ...

rabck from spoiledrotten; double romance that only intersects a tad at the end. 91 yo Ira drives off the highway and is trapped in his car. During his wait for rescue, he relives his life with his beloved wife, Ruth. Sophia meets Luke when he rescues her from an ex-boyfriend's attention at a party, and although from very different worlds - she from a city in NJ and he from a ranch in NC, they fall in love. Tearjerker ending. ( )
