"…the saddest people I have ever met in life are the ones who don’t care deeply about anything at all. Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary, because there is nothing to make it last." -Savannah
Like what I said, this book hooked me at first and disappointed me on the end. Nevertheless, this one’s great, a new perspective of a love story. So let me start now.
My Ridiculously Simplified Synopsis : Never love an Army.
Not your ordinary Sparks novel dear. Romance mixed with the everlasting fatherly love. Well, in fact, I shed tears on this not because of what happened on the two protagonist but with John’s father. Yeah, I cried. Read the book, and don’t blame me.
Dear John by Nicholas Sparks, is a love story about two people from two totally different worlds who fall in love. When they look at each other eye to eye, they both feel something they’ve never felt before.
John Tyree was a boy who lived with his father, not knowing what he was going to do with his life. When he went away to war, he had no idea what he was about to experience in the next ten years of his life. On one of his leaves, he was at the beach and met the girl of his dreams. They loved each other no matter how far apart they were. When 9/11 happened, John had a choice to make. Little did he know, that decision would change his life. They’re lives.
The book was very interesting to read. It kept my attention from the first page and until the last leaf. I wish the ending was different, in a lot of ways, but that’s just my opinion. Compared to other books, it will blow most of them out of the water.
Nicholas Sparks is an amazing writer and this book is a great example. Dear John is a must read! If you’re in to sappy love stories, then you would love to read this book.
I haven’t seen the movie but people have told me that the ending of the movie is much different and they changed other details, such as the autistic brother is made into a son. Well then.
And thanks to Sam, again, for lending me the copy.
