I can't tell if I've just read too much Nicholas Sparks, or if this book was really as bad as it was.

Got 2 stars because I was actually sort of into it at the beginning.

But after a while, it was all schmaltz. Oy. Sometimes painful to read--I mean, does he think his readers even think any of his writing is realistic anymore?

I'm a romantic (a hopeless one at that) but even I stretch to find anything remotely fun about reading a love story that so over the top I can't imagine it would really happen to anyone.

Sparks' books were at least halfway decent (the earlier ones that I've read), but I fear that because he now churns out a book a year that he's losing quality in his writing (Jodi Picoult, sadly, has done the same).
