Seriously 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 now, "Aha! That will definitely be a tear jerker, I'm a genius! I cannot say that enough.
Don't get me wrong there a scenes where you are like that was good, but he tries to stick in too many. He is a master puppeteer when it comes to pulling your heart strings, basically merciless this guy. The premise was interesting because I grew up as a military kid and I wanted see the perspective of a soldier without children.
John is good in the beginning but then he changes pretty dramatically. In the first half of the book he keeps saying and my love grew stronger at least 4 or 5 times. Really John how much stronger can it get? There was this thing that really bothered me. He kept saying base but in the Army they call it a post, the Air Force calls military installations bases.
The terms are of course are interchangeable and people use them both, but for the time John is in the Army he would have known that. I would have rather read a story focused on John's relationship with his father and have Savannah as a side note. That would have been better.
Kind of a let down and don't even feel like watching the movie anymore. Basically I'm saying to pick up something else if you are not into sappy, sad, melodramatic stories.Dear John by Nicholas Sparks is one of those books I've developed a love/hate relationship with.
