Good memoir of the brothers' vacation of a lifetime with around the world tour destinations, juxtaposed with memories of their lives growing up together and their lives as adults ( )

I've read a lot of books by Nicholas Sparks and I am quite curious on the life of this author. When I saw this book, I was intrigued not only by the title but it piqued again my curiosity about Nicholas Sparks' childhood and family. This was on my to-read list for quite a while and recently I was checking on what book I should read next. I grabbed right away the opportunity to read it and it never disappoints me. If you are fan of this author's work and also curious on his life, you should check this out so you can take a glimpse on his life. ( )

When the Sparks brothers went on a round the world trip they also shared memories of growing up making this a combination of travelogue and biography. They didn't learn anything new about each other, just reminisced about their family. Long segments described the recent death of their sister, leaving the brothers the only remaining members of the family, and of the health conditions of other members of their families. Nicholas became occasionally preachy. There was so little about their travels that they might have written it without leaving home. Striking a "poor-me" tone, this did not turn out to be what I expected. ( )

Yep, I read it for book club. I have liked reading some of Sparks's fiction, but the little bit of sex in every novel kind of bugs me. The good news is that he didn't put any of that in this memoir. It was a good read - an interesting story. ( )

Not your typical Nicholas Sparks love story. It more a travel/biography book but it was still very enjoyable. ( )

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.
