This latest offering from Nicholas Sparks is a lovely coming of age story which deals with relationships, love and death. The story is told from four different perspectives with each character revealing more of the story and giving slightly varied slants on the events that are occurring. Ronnie is an engaging character with a tender heart who loves her little brother and turtles, and she quickly gains the reader's empathy. In typical Sparks' fashion, I found myself crying in the last few chapters even though the ending was predictable early in the book. While I loved "The Last Song", I don't think it's my favourite Nicholas Sparks book, although it does come close....Continua
The last song is my favourite book. I have to say that I cried very much, no one can make you feel this way with his writing as Sparks does.
Obviously I've seen the film version of the Notebook, as every girl seems to have, but I have never read any of Sparks books before. I was lent this by a very enthusiastic Miley Cyrus fan and thought I'd give it a go. I haven't seen the film version but I honestly don't think I'd be up for it after reading the book. This was heart-breaking enough.
Ok so its seems that Nicholas Sparks has definitely got a way with romantic novels judging by his success but this did seem all too close to the Notebook's plotline. I liked it, and the end was inevitably heart-breaking which I'm going to take the liberty of guessing all of Spark's books are but there wasn't anything too original about it. I even thought in places the writing wasn't fantastic.
I doubt I'll read more of Sparks books as this was too depressing. Im not into depressing books. Its a good soppy romance I suppose and be prepared to cry, if you don't you're made of stone....Continua
Saw the movie and read the book. I cried on both counts
