My Ridiculously Simplified Synopsis: When your husband dies, get yourself a Great Dane. Richard Franklin, he’s sociopath.
A daring read, at least you have to keep up with the first part, you’ll be addicted to it come page 31. I argued with myself, cause it’s a kind of book that I don’t want to finish. A book that I considered as a friend already, that by finishing it, I’m ending the friendship that we shared. But I have to finish it. Rewarding!
So far, Nicholas Sparks takes a break from his usual ant-calling sweetness moods of his books. As a secondary plot, he presents a thrilling twist that will soon haunt the lives of the unfortunate protagonists.
This novel warns everyone that you are not always in control of your lives, the truth is that once you step out of your door, you are pretty much at the mercy of the people around you, hoping that if they’re having a bad day, they’ll not put it all out to you.
I hated, loathed the antagonist in this novel, the evil-psychopath-photographer who’ll do anything just to win her date back. Really, I have to warn you, you’ll utter plenty of profanities while you’re reading this book. And you’ll share the same I-think-someone’s-watching-me feeling with Julie, the heroine of the story.
I have to say that, in addition to a Siberian Husky, I want to have a Great Dane too. They’re great dogs. As far as the story is concerned. I think, if I love dogs and if I’m not afraid of them, I’m going to cry on the last part. But as you all know, I hate dogs. If you’re into dogs, this book is perfect for you. Singer, the Great Dane Hero of the novel, will make you laugh in the start, and of course, it’ll tug your heart then poke your tear glands.
WHY READ IT? Like what I said above. It’s Nicholas Sparks’ first thriller novel. It’s on my Best Books list, on top 7. It’s a story about recovery and of course, trying to fill the empty hole in your heart by finding a new one. It’s a great book. Trust me.
