At least he'd stirred a strong emotion in me. For a long time, that was the only thing I liked about Nicholas Sparks.
Now, there's this book. Three Weeks With My Brother tells more than the story of two brothers on what would, by any counts, be a fabulous trip.
Mr Sparks takes the reader back to the beginning, invites us into his home, warts and all. The Sparks children had a unique upbringing: laissez-faire in some senses, but with certain iron-clad principles and a lot of love, that held the structure together. That the family was financially strapped is somewhat of an understatement.
That they were resourceful, is another. In some senses, I was reminded of my husband's childhood in upstate New York. But the bonds in the family were strong, as became apparent when tragedy struck, again and again.
This story, of the Sparks family, interwoven with the brother's story of a round-the-world trip fascinated me. I thought so much of my two brothers finding both similarities and disparities.
There's a lot of humor and honesty in the telling.
Sparks' faith is evident, as is his strong love for his family. USA Library Binding. Paw Prints Availability: Three Weeks with My Brother Author s: Perfection Learning Availability: Time Warner Books Uk Availability: Grand Central Publishing Availability: Sphere Availability: site UK.
Reading "Three weeks with my brother" really shone a light on how Sparks draws from his personal life to write his novels.
The interweaving of the trip with his brother with information about how they grew up was well crafted. Having traveled to several of the sites myself added to the connection I felt to the book.
This account of his life is structured around a multi-continent trip he takes with his older brother, Micah. The stories from his past are the most colored and interesting, and focus on three points of view: His relationship with Micah, the kids' relationship with their mother and the struggles the parents endured to support their family.
Micah was a classic firstborn child, often acting as protector to his siblings and always taking risks in his exploration of life.
Nicholas, or Nicky, was the middle child, and the boys had a younger sister named Dana. Their mother is a pleasure to read; she has this striking ability to be both unconditionally loving of her children and giving them endless school-of-hard-knocks lessons on life.Somewhere Only We Know.

Both Micah and I answer the same way: Well-- no, not exactly. He was quite polite, and attentive, and inquired why I was so adamant about not participating in the book signing.
