    1. 2.5 Stars"Okay"mething's missing hereWhen I decide to read a Nicholas Sparks novel, I pretty much know and look forward to what I'm going to get, but SEE ME just did not work. It had a somewhat different flair (which is "Okay") with a stalker on the loose and an unlikely leading man with a dark history and hot temper added to the "mediocre" romantic mix, but.I'm sorry to say, SEE ME has turned out to be my least favorite NS read. The love connection lacked real feeling, the characters were ho hu [...]

    2. Nicholas Sparks does it once again. Yet another well written story about love, with a bit of mystery and suspense thrown into the mix. The story was a bit slow going at first, I believe this is his longest novel yet. It almost felt a bit to descriptive to start off, but when I got a little over halfway through I could hardly put it down. It ended up being just as lovely and thrilling as most all of his stories. I'll be shocked if I ever dislike one of his novels.

    3. I have been a fan of Nicholas Sparks before it was cliche to read his novels. I love his writing style and his characterization. That being said, there is no possible way he was the one who wrote See Me. The writing seems very amateur, especially for a seasoned best-selling novelist. Colin had zero personality. Maria came across as a teenager, not the brilliant lawyer she was described as. In fact, it was difficult to distinguish between Maria and Serena based on the dialogue, though they were s [...]

    4. OK, where to startI LOVED IT!I've read all Nicholas Sparks books so far and I loved them all - and I think I cried A LOT with every book. Unlike most of my reading-blogging-friends, Twilight did NOT start my reading-addiction - it was A Walk to Remember ♥This time.I cried a tiny little bit - I knew where the story was going from pretty much the very first time the bad guy was mentioned - the story was a bit slow, too long, too uneventful in the beginning - BUT it was refreshingly non-sparksy- [...]

    5. If you're wondering if Nicholas Sparks still has it after his divorce, he doesn't. This was not what I expected. It was not a love story. It was a stalker, suspense, twist and turn story. With so much detail oh my lord over the top details! Maybe other people will like it but I was so disappointed. I didn't even cry!!!!! I just wanted it to be over. And I skimmed so much.

    6. The last 100 pages of this book just destroyed me, no joke. It was an edge on your seat type thrill that I couldn't put the book down without having to see it through to the end. If you know me well, you will know that I actually do enjoy reading books by Nicholas Sparks and See Me was a good read. The plot followed Colin, a 28 year old having a second chance in life by training to be a teacher in College after he became aggressive, ended up on the wrong side of the law and having his parents th [...]

    7. Disappointed. I am a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks, but this book just didn't live up to the hype. I guessed at almost all of the plot twists before they happened, so there were no real surprises. I know this book was a step into a new genre for him, but I hope he goes back to writing what he does best. If the book had been written by anyone other than Nicholas Sparks, I would have put it down halfway through and not even finished it. Just Disappointed

    8. This novel starts off with an unidentified male person wanting vengeance on Maria Sanchez. It then introduces the two main characters. Colin Hancock, who has in the past had a chequered history with the law. He is now seeking to change his life, earn a teaching degree and have his criminal record expunged. One rainy night he meets Maria Sanchez, who is a lawyer. From then on chapters are told alternately between Colin and Maria. The novel turns into a love story, which is no surprise given that [...]

    9. Kolin iza sebe ima čitavu historiju nasilničkog ponašanja i loših odluka, a sada je odlučio da živi ispravno i izbjegava sve što bi moglo biti pogubno za njegovu budućnost. Marija je kćerka meksičkih doseljenika, radi u uglednoj advokatskoj kancelariji i ima besprijekornu karijeru. Kada sudbina spoji Kolina i Mariju počinju problemi uzrokovani Marijinim lošim odlukama u prošlosti. Ovaj roman je netipičan za Sparksa - u njemu ne dominira samo ljubav kao što je to slučaj sa njegovi [...]

    10. Gifted Southern storyteller, Nicholas Sparkscontinues to “pull out all the stops” with his new romantic thriller, SEE ME— assured to be yet another bestseller, and blockbuster movie. A novelof second chances, as the past and present collide, with a roller-coaster ride of emotion, suspense, mystery, and thriller . . And, as always, a love story running in the background, found in the most likely of placesE ME, just as I see you . . . what powerful words.Set in Wilmington,North Carolina – [...]

    11. This will be Nicholas's first book published post his divorce (which i was heartbroken about tbh) <\\3We shall see if he has not lost his (magic) touch & can still woo us with his love stories. I quote him something to the effect ,that when he wakes up every morning & looks at Cath (his wifeI mean ex-wife D: ) ,thats the love he writes about. But thats no more right? :(

    12. 4 starsWhile I usually tend to lean more towards YA books ( fantasy & dystopian being my faves ), I have a soft spot for Nicholas Sparks. I have read pretty much all his novels, own my favorites and watched all the ones that have been converted to movies. His books give me those warm, fuzzy feels that a girl needs every now and then. This being his newest one, it had a slightly darker feel than the others. The book centers around Maria, a child of Mexican immigrants who became a lawyer and C [...]

    13. I've loved everything Nicholas Sparks has ever writtenuntil now.I preordered this book and counted down the days until its release. It automatically downloaded on my Kindle and I began reading. I read the prologue and exited the book, assuming I had somehow started to read the wrong thing. No, it was See Me. I read the first chapter and googled the book to make sure it hadn't been written by someone with a similar name. No, it was the same Nicholas Sparks who wrote The Notebook and At First Sigh [...]

    14. See Me was a bit of light, warm reading for me and one where I wasn’t sure where the storyline was heading next and thinking about what was going to happen to the characters. Though romance novels are hit and miss for me this novel had some murder, romance, mystery, violence and tragedy in a light tone. An enjoyable read with some likeable characters.

    15. Sparks je u ovom novom romanu napravio odličan spoj romanse i trilera, a u prilog tome ide i veći broj stranica nego što je to za njega uobičajeno što je značajno unaprijedilo kvalitet ovog romana u odnosu na ranije. Prednost ipak dajem romansi glavnih likova koja se, uprkos svim poteškoćama, polako razvija i gradi, postajući sve jača i ljepša. Vodeći se životnom mudrošću da treba gledati srcem, a ne očima Sparks dokazuje da ništa nije onako kako se zapravo na prvi pogled čini. [...]

    16. This is not your ordinary Nicholas Sparks’s novel. If you think this is another book full of cliched and tragic-romantic love story and threadbare phrases, you’re wrong.Full review to come.

    17. This is a very different Nicholas Sparks book! If you loved The Notebook or The Best of Me, See Me may not be for you. When I began reading See Me, I was disappointed in the story. Nicholas Sparks' new style was interesting but not great for me. The love connection between Colin and Maria lacked real feeling and appeared unlikely. See Me is definitely my least favourite NS read but it kept me engaged until the last chapter. 3 stars

    18. *****For my full review of this brilliant book, stop by Darling & Co.*****So this book has been sitting on my TBR shelf for a while. Last October when it was published, I purchased the audiobook of it and then never listened to it. My thought process was that I would buy a book that was kind of long and then listen to it while I worked out; that didn't happen, and the book went unread/un-listened to. So this last weekend, I was sitting around reading different things, and I saw it sitting in [...]

    19. Nicholas Sparks is my favorite author but this just may be my least favorite of his. Sadly just didn't connect to the characters, their love story, or just the story in general :/

    20. See Me is a departure from the tear-inducing novels that Sparks typically writes and I appreciated the mystery, thriller and suspense angles. While I pieced together things, thanks to some carefully placed clues I nonetheless enjoyed both the characters and the twists.A chance encounter has Colin Hancock and Maria Sánchez meeting and thanks to the help of another character, these two meet yet again and begin a friendship that quickly moves to romance. These two are opposites, and I loved the sl [...]

    21. well, at this point I'm beginning to wonder if Nicholas Sparks just writes the books to be made into movies? As usual, the story is good, but his way of telling it is justok. I 99.9% of the time prefer his books as movies (with the exception of The Longest Ride , which was fantastic).This one had more of a mystery-romance vibe going on, so it veered a little different than most of his other books that I've read. All in all, I enjoyed it. I'm not raving about it, but i wouldn't try to deter anyon [...]

    22. Opinião publicada no Efeito dos LivrosOh tio Nick, tenho reservado a primeira leitura do ano para um dos teus livros e não é que tenho acertado?!Este "No teu olhar" foi uma óptima surpresa e começo a achar preocupante eu querer roubar livros à minha mãe, especialmente de Nicholas Sparks.Mais que um romance e uma história de redenção, "No teu olhar" tem crime, pânico, perseguição e todas aquelas situações que fazem arrepiar os pelinhos do corpo se estivessem a acontecer connosco. L [...]

    23. I hope Nicholas Sparks hated writing this novel as much as I hated reading it. Then at least I'll have some vindication for how much of a true let down this was. Not only did I not like the characters and not like the main love story, it pissed me off. It was such an awful calculated "thriller" where the characters couldn't put the pieces together and made you cringe and yell at the book constantly for just how stupid they were. Why can't Sparks just stick to what he does best, a genuine honest [...]

    24. I'm embarrassed by how much I enjoyed this. Part mystery, part romance, it was completely enjoyable from start to finish.

    25. Not your typical Nicholas Sparks novel. More of a mystery suspense with many Twist that keeps you gripped to the end. I love all his books I've read. Plus he lives in North Carolina so I hope I'm not being bias

    26. the story is all about Marie, a lawyer , who was involved in case that ended up by burning the victim alive, and the murderer himself did not live any longer. despite the fact that Marie did all her best to the client who had been burned e client's brother accused her that she was the main reason for what had happened. after a while, she forgot all about that ,for she was utterly concentrating on her job and mainly because she had met an interesting person , Colin, who had a violent history. in [...]

    27. EEEKKKK! GUYS!!!! I HAVE AN EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT!!➜➜ Colin was leaning against the side of his car as she pulled in behind him, and when he waved, all she could do was stare. He wore a gray T‑shirt that clung from his sculpted shoulders all the way down to his narrow waist. The sleeves could barely contain his well-​defined arms, and even from a distance, the deep blue-​gray color of his eyes was visible, set off by his sharp cheekbones.As improbable as it seemed, her first thought was th [...]

    28. Hero's JourneyI haven't read many Nicholas Sparks novels, but when I heard this one featured an ex-prisoner, I jumped at the chance to read it. Ever since falling in love with the TV show Prison Break, I've been enthralled by ex-cons trying to make a better life.The hero Colin hadn't actually been in prison, however. After one too many bar fights, he managed to make a deal for probation. But I liked his character for another reason: his live and let live philosophy. Colin is in his early 30s. He [...]
