Put Aside: True Believer by Nicholas Sparks
I’m gutted to put this down as Nicholas Sparks is one of my favourite authors but for no real reason I just cannot get into this book.
As a science journalist with a regular column in Scientific American, Jeremy Marsh specializes in debunking the supernatural and has a real nose for the strange and unusual. A born skeptic, he travels to the small town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, determined to find the real cause behind the ghostly apparitions that appear in the town cemetery. What he doesn’t plan on, however, is meeting and falling hopelessly in love with Lexie Darnell, granddaughter of the town psychic. Now, if the young lovers are to have any kind of future at all, Jeremy must make a difficult choice: return to the life he knows, or do something he could never do before-take a giant leap of faith.
Like I said, there is nothing glaringly obvious that caused me to struggle with this book, and I imagine if I was to pick this up in a few months time I would enjoy it, but as a firm believer in there being too many books to read to waste your time with one you don’t get on with, I have chosen to put this one aside as I just cannot get into it. Gutted, but such is life.
