Dear John is trademark Nicholas Sparks-romantic, sappy, sad and redeeming. If you enjoyed any of Sparks’ earlier novels, you will most probably enjoy Dear John, a love story about an army sergeant who falls in love shortly before 9/11. Sparks’ writing is smooth and easy, but the characters and plot are could have been a little more memorable.
Recommended for those who like sappy tragic romantic comedies, but not for those who like a little meat in their reading (in the ilk of Mills & Boons)
This book is a return to Sparks’ old writing style. Quite Similar to The Notebook, and A Walk to Remember, this book is a must read for any Sparks’ fan, as well as anyone wanting an old fashioned love story…full of love, heartache, romance, fulfillment, tragedy, and sacrifice.
