This book was astounding, but it was way to short. Sparks caught me in with the very first paragraph. I was interesting from beginning to end.
You know, there so much rep about Nicholas Sparks and him being one of the best story tellers of the last few decades, so I had a lot of expectations with this novel. Let me tell you, it did not let me down a bit.
From what i've heard his telling of the 50's was acurate. Landon Carter seemed like the typical High School prankster. Jamie Sullivan was like the sweet girl that every class has. When they were drawn together it gave this book the perfect spark. The ending had that problem that you knew was going to happen but didn't really expect it. This novel was astonishing.
I completely cannot wait to go to the library to get another one of his books to read. I'm exstatic.
