We gave it a B

Fans of Nicholas Sparks’ signature use of flashbacks to illustrate the highs (and lows) of true love should welcome The Choice. Travis, a free-spirited North Carolina veterinarian, faces a tough decision regarding his 10-year marriage to Gabby, an uptight physician’s assistant who gave up a reliable (read: boring) lover to run off with Travis. His ”choice” is surprising; Sparks leads us to think it’s one thing when it’s really another. But for the occasional treacly moment — during a date, Travis and Gabby realize ”they were sitting across from a person who just might change the course of their lives” — this is a pleasantly sentimental journey.
