As moving as his bestselling works of fiction, Nicholas Sparks's unique memoir, written with his brother, chronicles the life-affirming journey of two brothers bound by memories, both humorous and tragicIn January 2003, Nicholas Sparks and his brother, Micah, set off on a three-week trip around the globe. It was to mark a milestone in their lives, for at thirty-seven and thirty-eight respectively, they were now the only surviving members of their family. Against the backdrop of the wonders of the world and often overtaken by their feelings, daredevil Micah and the more serious, introspective Nicholas recalled their rambunctious childhood adventures and the tragedies that tested their faith. And in the process, they discovered startling truths about loss, love, and hope.Narrated with irrepressible humor and rare candor, and including personal photos, THREE WEEKS WITH MY BROTHER reminds us to embrace life with all its uncertainties...and most of all, to cherish the joyful times, both small and momentous, and the wonderful people who make them possible.

Wow. Just wow. At first I seriously thought that he was this conceited, self-centered asshole, leaving his wife and 5 children to go on this three week trip around the world with his brother, but his life has been a roller coaster! He has had some serious ups and downs. They made me laugh (SoxyVoome...
This book has sat on my shelf for the past 5 years. Never a big fan of autobiographies - I just couldn't bring myself to pick it up, even when I heard all the rave reviews it received.I'll admit the first half of the book was really slow for me, and I didn't know if I'd be able to finish it. I lov...
Nicholas Sparks' story of a 3 week round the world trip with his brother Micah. They are probably still both in their 30's at the time of this trip, but both of their parents and their sister have all died. Nicholas is a bestselling author with a family of 5 kids, and Micah is a successful business ...
