Read from January 20 to 23, 2012

At first I was very disappointed how the book only focused on one scene and I was scared it would be a short ending. As I got to read more I started to compare it with the movie and found that the movie focuses more on John's relationship with Savannah and not much with his dad. I saw the relationship with his father grow stronger in the book. Many might say that the ending of the book is disappointing because it's not what people want to read and hear. The movie is so Hollywood and of course they end up together but the book really showed me reality and that you don't always end up with the person you truly love. It's a good lesson in life and the ending is still a tear jerker! I recommend this book to anyone who loves love story but ones that don't have Hollywood aspects to it but just reality! I also say READ THE BOOK FIRST.. Watching movie before makes it harder to really focus on the true story in the book...

Petra Willemse so true. Often I wish I had read something first.
