The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks Book Summary

From the dark days of WWII to present-day North Carolina, this New York Times bestseller shares the lives of two couples overcoming destructive secrets -- and finding joy together.

Ira Levinson is in trouble. Ninety-one years old and stranded and injured after a car crash, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes 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 bull-riding event, 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.

The Longest Ride by: Nicholas Sparks. The reader is drawn into two very distinct stories with such intensity that it's difficult to quit reading. The desire to "know what happens" becomes more important than sleep. Relatively quick read considering it covers 9 months for the young couple ; to a lifetime for older couple. Great use of raw emotions to draw the reader further into the story. Desperate to know how it ends. Ending is a bit of a cheat with author not utilizing Sophia's art degree/education ( would have drug the story out, but I've enjoyed watching her learn).

Best book ever!!!. I started reading and I fell in love

An Incredible Ride. This book was amazing and I loved it. The ending had me smiling and in shock and in love with these characters. I would definitely recommend this book, I think it may be one of the best that Sparks has written thus far. Incredible. Thank you for making such a touching and interesting story!

Prefer a root canal. I had never read Nicholas Sparks because I assumed he wrote romance books suitable for teens. That being said, I saw that it was very popular and decided to get the "sample". I loved that....the elderly man trapped in his car remembering his past. I was hooked. I ordered the book and it quickly turns into this juvenile romance, complete with stilted conversation, contrived plot and one dimensional characters. I'd just as soon get a root canal as read anything else by him

Beautiful and Astonishing. Stories go smoothly and twists are well designed.

fun to read. easy and light story, predictable, but no borred, still will keep you in the good mood :)

Amazing. This book was simply amazing good job nick

The longest ride. This book is amazing and everyone should see the movie at least

❤️. The longest ride was by far my favorite book! I can not wait to see the movie! The part of Ira became kind of long and tedious but the story of Luke and Sophia were so amazing! They just became my OTP!

Best Book Ever. I Loved This Book It Was Not Like The Movie, It Was Better. I wish the author could make a book 2 of this to see where Sofia and Luke end up. 😭😭❤️❤️

Love. Amazing story and heartfelt emotion. I would recommend to anyone who loves a good love story with real life challenging twists. Chivalry is not dead.

J’Niya’s Review. Loved this book! The story is very heartwarming and Ira’s love and admiration for Ruth is beautiful to read.

The Longest Ride. WOW!!! This is the first book I have read of Nicholas Sparks.. Absolutely wonderful.. Could not put it down, so I read it , in one setting…. I think it hit every feeling I have ever had… Fantastic!!

THE BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!!!. This book really is one of the best books I have ever read. As I neared the ending of this book remembered saying to myself "I could read this book over and over again and never get tired of it". As I rethink about what I said I now see that I was absolutely correct. After all the ups and downs twists and turns this book threw at me I saw how truly amazing this book was and could not stop reading it and with a curfew of 9:00, karate from when school lets out to 6:00, and having to leave the driveway of my house at 7:45 to make it to my morning patrol duty I finished this book in three days I loved it and now it is my favorite book. Can't wait until April 10 when the movie THE LONGEST RIDE enters the movie theater. I will go see it the Friday it comes out and shed tears of joy. I hope you loved the book as much as I did. ❤️😂

Best book ever. This is honestly the best book I've ever read. Hands down. Nicholas Sparks is so talented and I cannot wait to see The Longest Ride when it comes out in movie. This book changed my life and it's so good!

I ❤️ it!. I have always liked Nicholas Sparks and that didn't change after this book. I really enjoyed the book. The whole time I was trying to figure out how the two stories would connect. I knew it would connect around his collection, but I wasn't sure exactly how. Loved how it ended.

So good. I read this because the movie is coming out and because I'm never disappointed with Sparks' books. No exception here. I actually cried at points. I love a great romance and this was sweet, touching and just beautiful.

The Longest Ride. I love Nicholas Sparks, he is hands down my favorite author!! The Notebook is my favorite book but this one comes in a close 2nd!!

The Longest Ride. great book! I absolutely loved it!!

Longest Ride. I loved this book ! Not just because it was romantic but because the way it was written you could tell he did his homework so wonderful.

Nicholas Sparks. With each book I read by Mr. Sparks I find myself drawn into the lovely use of language and flow of the story. Every description, every change of scenery and juxtaposition of characters and their thoughts and actions leave me sad to finish the book only to await another book. Mr. Sparks is a rare find. In The Longest Ride, Ira and Ruth, Luke and Sophia are believable and endearing. WOW!!!!

The Longest Ride. Nicholas Sparks best book yet!!! Such a touching ending...Loved it!!

Amazing. I have read numerous books by Nicholas Sparks. Yet this is the first I read so quickly. It was something to keep you on the end of the page. You can't put it down you want everything to work out. I thought the two stories came together beautifully. I give it 5 stars and will read it again and again.

Eh good. This book would have been way better if he had focused more on the younger couple. I felt like the story with the older couples story was boring and would drag on through the chapters. I would find myself counting how many pages I had till I was done with their section and back to the younger couple. And as most romance novels it was fairly predictable. I liked the book but it could have been better.

Such an enjoyable book!. This was such a great book! It kept me on my toes wanting to know more and more. Some of the chapters were a little slow and hard to get through but in the end, it was totally worth it! I was curious what the outcome was going to be until the very end! Another great book by a my favorite author! :)

Love this book. This book has made me believe in love.

Great Story!. Loved it!

Amazing.. I've read many Sparks books, but this one is by far the best. So much better than the Notebook, I love it.

One of the best books ever. For anyone who is a fang irk I strongly suggest this book it is amazing

Best book. I love this book it is Nichols sparks best book

Sparks does it again.. This book merges a heart-warming and heart-breaking story of the life of an elderly couple with the budding and exciting love of college students to make a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat and leaves you feeling satisfied. Prepare yourself for both tears and laughter.

AMAZING!!!. Great book!! I loved reading this book. It is so well written. You will not be disappointed in this book!

Must read. Absolutely enjoyed this book. I was a bit sad when I finished reading it cause I want the story to keep on going but also it teared me up a bit and gave me goosebumps cause the ending was beautifully done.

The Longest Ride. Excellent book and movie I enjoyed both thank you Nicholas Sparkes I read all your books can't wait to read your next one thank you

Very well written!!. I've read so many other books but this strikes me as one of the best written ones. The language and wording used by Nicholas Sparks is incredibly eloquent. This story is far from a regular romance story. It's a must-read!! 💘👍👏

The Longest Ride. Once again, Nicholas Sparks delivers a story that keeps you invested to the very end. Weaving the stories of love and loss in a way that makes me feel like 'I understand'. Loved this story of life and fate....everything happens for a reason.

Absolutely beautiful. The story is just beautiful. You don't want to put the book down and the happy end is the best reward. Loved it and kind of feel sad that I am done reading this unbelievable story. Thank you Mr. Nicholas Spark

Ok, nice but.... The book is quite good. I was a little disappointed by the first half of the book, the second half was however much better. Perhaps the movie is great.. ever though books are usually so much better than movies. I am a bit puzzled by the fantastic reviews I read on this book?
