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.
The Last Song written by Nicholas Sparks is centered around seventeen year old Veronica “Ronnie” Miller who visits her dying father. Ronnie is a talented rebellious piano player and is outraged by her fathers alleged “abandonment” . Ronnie soon meets Will Blakelee, who becomes her romantic focus in the novel, and helps her come to terms with her past and present.
The novel taught could teach a couple of life lessons about love, family, and friends. Gah!
