The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks
Corny and filled with cliché after cliché. Granted, I got the book right before I hopped on a flight and just downloaded anything, I still feel slightly embarrassed that I actually read a book of this nature. Look, I get that young girls might like this book, but spend your time with actual fantasy or sci-fi. Or better yet a historical fiction novel. This book is crap, it promotes the continued fake idealism of love and what I like to call the Disney effect. This is not what I would want my teen spending her time reading and definitely not filling her head with these kinds of worthless ideals.
I did not enjoy this very much. I am going to admit I watched the movie in between chapters so I would be able to see what was going on but the movie was so different from the book. For example, When Dawson and Amanda met as adults in the book, Amanda was happy to see him but in the movie they made her act like she was aggravated and did not want to see him. That was the first time I watched the movie throughout reading the book and I will never do that again. It really ruined the book for me this time but mostly because they changed the whole movie and it sucked.
La historia está escrita de una forma ligera que no cansa, pero tampoco engancha (por lo menos a mí no me pasó). El escritor supo bien asociar las narraciones del pasado, junto con los del presente. Además de que me gustó que el narrador tomara los puntos de vistas de personajes secundarios. Es una historia muy bonita, con un final...inesperado, tenía dos tipos de final en mente, pero nada que ver con el que pasó. A pesar de que haya sido así, para mí fue un buen final, muy bonito, y triste...
Nicholas Sparks strikes again. Left me sobbing in my bed late at night as I couldn't put it down! Probably my favorite of his books! I love a good cry when I'm being entertained. I would recommend this one but just be aware that Nicholas Sparks books are all tear jerking emotional love stories. You gotta be into that!
This book is so good it makes me mad! I was not expecting the ending! Nicholas sparks is a true genius. Every time i read one of his books, i fall in love with a character and then have my heart ripped right out of me. If your looking for a sappy love story with a twist and you want to cry, this is the book for you!
One of my favorites for sure, my boyfriend give to me and I can't help me until finished, I loved the history, as I already knew, Nicholas sparks is a excellent author and I still loving every single book, you can feel the pain and the love of the personages!
Legit cried through out this whole book. It was amazing. I loved how everything was well written, and the characters were very relatable. They were so open and like normal people. I really enjoyed reading this, it is for sure a must read book!
I read everything written by Nicholas Sparks. This one was a good one. Sort of reminded me of the Notebook the way they were going back in time. This was full of love and sadness. If you like Nicholas Spark's other books, you'll enjoy this.
This is one of the most beautiful and heart warming love stories. Each chapter will have you falling for each character and give you the feeling as if you actually know them in person. This book is very well written and is worth reading!!
I love Nicolas Sparks books. They all consume me into the pages leaving me unable to put them down until the end. This book was no different. I love the books better than the movies too because the books have so much more details.
