Publisher's Summary

In January 2003, Nick Sparks and his brother Micah set off on a three-week trip around the world. It was to mark a milestone in their lives, for at 35 and 36, respectively, they were now the only surviving members of their family. As Nick and Micah travel the globe, the intimate story of their tragic family legacy unfolds in the details of the untimely deaths of their parents and only sister. Against the backdrop of the wonders of the world, the Sparks brothers bond together to heal, to remember, and to learn to live life to the fullest.


What the Critics Say

"This is a rare opportunity for readers to get to know a favorite author as Nicholas reveals the inspirations for his fiction. A must-read for Sparks fans as well as a treat for those who want to find out what makes a family strong." (Booklist)
"Refreshingly honest and perceptive....Weaving in vignettes of tenderness and loss with travelogue-like observations, Sparks's account shows how he and his brother both evolved on this voyage." (Publishers Weekly)

A Classic!

While I have enjoyed two of his other books, I believe "Three Weeks with
My Brother" is his best work to date. Nicholas Sparks is an excellent storyteller. Their youthful escapades are uproariously funny.
I laughed, I cried ... I loved it!

Personal and reflective

I always enjoy reading or hearing stories from real people, about the real people that they are, and the struggles they endure. This is a compilation of stories, well woven together. At times it seems a bit too sappy, but the pain these people go through makes it both bearable and understandable. The reader is good, both in vocal character and inflection. I really enjoyed this book, though it didn't keep me in suspense or awake at night wondering what happens next, I did find myself growing attached to the characters. I have never read a Sparks novel, nor did I know he was an established author, but I will read some of his other titles now. His style of writing is easily understood, even in this personal journal of his life. -- Recommended if you like true stories.
