3. Dear John

Dear John Nicholas Sparks
January 2010

This was a book that my sister picked up to read during our vacation and I decided to read when she was done. I'm really glad I did. I have obviously read The Notebook, but for one reason or another never read another Sparks book until this one. It added a definite change of pace for me since I never read "love stories," or at least not the kind that Sparks writes.

My only complaint is that throughout the book I began to feel like a completely inadequate person. Sparks can take a character and describe all of their imperfections in a way that make them seem like a completely perfect person. My roommate set me straight we she said, "Please! You canNOT compare yourself to a Nicholas Sparks character!" haha... I guess she's right. Either way great little story, fun read, will definitely read more Sparks books!

  1. I loved the Notebook and have read a few of his other books but they started to become to predictible and similar. I read this one and thought it was one of his better books. I havent seen the movie yet though.
