BOOK REVIEW: THREE WEEKS WITH MY BROTHER
Usually I donít enjoy reading about other families. They tend to be boring and allows the reader to discover that other families have their good, bad, and sad times just as ones own family. This book is certainly an exception to that statement. Mr. Sparks describes how this trip came to its fruition while intertwining his family while describing the fascinating trip.
Nicholas Sparks and his brother, Micah, had one whale of a three-week trip throughout the world, visiting places most of us have never heard of. The areas visited are described just as though the reader was there themselves taking in the fantastic, as well as the boring sites. Mr. Sparks has written quite a few other books, some before, some during, and a few since this trip. He describes what inspired him to write the various books. Many came from his family but a few from his life experiences. Three Weeks with My Brother is a very personal book, told with the natural thoughts and feelings that occur in a normal life, but the Sparkís family is much more interesting than most of us can imagine.
Tour the world with Nicholas and Micah and learn about their family, the happy times and the sad times. In places you will find the tears coming no matter how hard you try not to shed them. While on the trip, both brothers kept in contact with their family from afar. As they visited new sites, they wished their family were with them to see the amazing things their eyes encompassed. While they enjoyed some time away from their everyday lives, it was hard not having their familyís with them.
If you have not read any of Nicholas Sparkís books, you will want to after you finish this book. His writing is down-to-earth story telling told in a way the reader enjoys. Not boring or distasteful. It is not written in a way that would interfere with good morals and standards.
