✓ Read ✓ Dear John by Nicholas Sparks à Spoiler Alert Though it started out really well, I hated the ending In typical Sparks fashion, your not left with a happy ending Though I have been a fan of his The Notebook is one of my favorites , I am growing weary of these endings I just don t like to invest my time and the roller coaster of emotions he sends you through only to be left unsatisfied If you ve seen the movie Cold Mountain, you may get what I mean I felt the same way at the end of it, HelloI spent 3 hours watching this movie for this Anyway, I felt like this could have been a really good book had it ended differently I mean the poor guy is left with absolutely nothing, while thanks to him she goes off into the sunset with another man Yes, it was a great selfle I took the recommendation of a female friend whom I respect highly and bought this book, but when I first looked at it, put it aside figuring it was a romance novel that would only appeal to women How wrong I was.
The leading man , John Tyree, a US Army sergeant who served in Bosnia and Iraq, was a highly sympathetic character, as was leading lady Savannah.
Not only were the characters good, but the plot was also.
The book moved very quickly and I finished it in one sitting, and then had to eat crow to the woman who recommended it to me I just bought fourSparks novels from , the book was that much fun to read, even for this curmudgeonly retired wire service reporter.
Reread 2017When all is said and done, we do what we do for one another For friendship Not for country, not for patriotism, not because we re programmed killing machines, but because of the guy next to you You fight for your friend, to keep him alive, and he fights for you, and everything about the army is built on this simple premise When I first read Dear John I was an optimistic, romantic teenager I gave it 3 stars because I wasn t happy with it s ending, I wanted the happily ever after.
Now I m acynical 24 year old, and a lot of the issues and relationship troubles for John and Savannah resonate with me a lotthan they did for my younger, inexperienced self.
I ve upped my rating to 4 stars Though I m not a fan of the insta love b This book needs to have a different title like maybeThe RehashorThe Tragic TragedySeriously how many times do we have to hear about the same scenes Ok so I didn t hate it, but really it was a bit of an overload I had it coming though, I mean what did I expect by picking up a Nicholas Sparks novel Sparks is a popular author for a reason His writing draws you in but not forcefully The words gently tug you along and before you know it you have to finish the book I will give him props for that because I m not one of those people who has to see a book to the end, if it s not holding my interest I chuck it.
After I finished reading I literally was exhausted It s like Sparks was sitting at his computer and thought about all the ways to make it romantically tragic I can just see him
Anyhoo, the book Typical Sparks fare star crossed lovers, torn apart by fate, life, what have you I really enjoyed the interaction between John and his father a lotthan I did his relationship with Savannah, maybe because it seemed farreal I never warmed up to Savannah, even though she was supposed to be the perfect, lovely Southern young lady And, like SO many other reviews on here, I too thought the ending was horrid As I was nearing the end of my audiobook, I knew exactly how it would end, but I still had another disc to go It An Angry Rebel, John Dropped Out Of School And Enlisted In The Army, Not Knowing What Else To Do With His Life Until He Meets The Girl Of His Dreams, Savannah Their Mutual Attraction Quickly Grows Into The Kind Of Love That Leaves Savannah Waiting For John To Finish His Tour Of Duty, And John Wanting To Settle Down With The Woman Who Has Captured His Heart But Changes Everything John Feels It Is His Duty To Re Enlist And Sadly, The Long Separation Finds Savannah Falling In Love With Someone Else Dear John, The Letter read And With Those Two Words, A Heart Was Broken And Two Lives Were Changed Forever Returning Home, John Must Come To Grips With The Fact That Savannah, Now Married, Is Still His True Love And Face The Hardest Decision Of His Life Mom recommended this one I hate Nick Sparks writing It s too simplistic and yet too formal In my opinion, no one in this day and age is allowed to use for when they mean because Too plot driven and he spells everything out I might have loved this in 7th grade Let me start off by saying that I am not a re reader My philosophy is why re read when you can read something new, right But when I saw the re release of Dear John by Nicholas Sparks with Channing Tatum on the cover and the fact that a movie was made based on the novel, I wanted to revisit John and Savannah.
I think it goes without saying that Nicholas Sparks is one of my favorite authors If Sparks writes it, I will read it His books are on my auto buy list It all started with the movie The Notebook I was completely and utterly captivated with Noah and Allie s story I wantedWhen I found out the movie was based on a novel, I went to the bookstore and picked it up and read my very first Nicholas Sparks novel Then I read At First Sight, True Believer, Message in a Bottle.
the list goes on and on I fell in love with his writin Opening LineMy name is John Tyree I was born in 1977, and I grew up in Wilmington, North Carolina You can always tell you re reading a great book when you find yourself skipping ahead into the final chapters to see how things will be resolved, even though you ve vowed you wouldn t Love doesn t always have a happy ending especially when it comes to a Nicholas Sparks novel and this is a wonderful, albeit quick tear jerking romance Our hero John grew up with a silent, meticulously organized father that he didn t understand In his teens he began to rebel, hanging out, playing pool and drinking This continues for a number of years with John working menial jobs, getting several tattoos and going nowhere fast Eventually John decides its time to grow up and he joins the army In fact it s during 2 weeks leave that he first meets Savannah, diving into t
