Preview — Milý Johne by Nicholas Sparks
"When all is said and done, we do what we do for one another. For friendship. Not for country, not for patriotism, not because we're programmed killing machines, but because of the guy next to you. You fight for your friend, to keep him alive, and he fights for you, and everything about the army is built on this simple premise."
When I first read Dear John- I was an optimistic, romantic teenager. I gave it 3 stars because I wasn't happy with it's ending, I wanted the happily ever aft ...more
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 ...more
Anyhoo, the book. Typical Sparks fare - star-crossed lovers, torn apart by fate, life, what have you. I really enjoyed the interaction between John and his father a lot more than I did his relationship with Savannah, maybe because it seemed far more real. I never warme ...more
The "leading man", John Tyree, a US Army sergeant who served in Bosnia and Iraq, was a highly sympathetic character, as was "leading lady" Savannah.
Not only were the characters good, but the plot was also.
The book moved very quickly and I finished it in one sitting, and then had to eat ...more
Then why can't she wait a little bit longer for John to come back from the army???!!!
She's madly in love with him.
Is that what a nice and a sweet person supposed to do?!
I could handle the slowness and the too-much-narration of this book. but THAT THING, the one that I mentioned above... I couldn't take it. Really. She's just unbelievable. She doesn't even know what she really wants!
Okay, so, this is my second Nichola ...more
I think it goes without saying that Nicholas Sparks is one of my favorite authors. If Sparks writes it, I will read it. His books are on my auto-buy list. It all started with the movie ...more
You can always tell you're reading a great book when you find yourself skipping ahead into the final chapters to see how things will be resolved, even though you've vowed you wouldn't. Love doesn't always have a happy ending (especially when it comes to a Nicholas Sparks novel) and this is a wonderful, albeit quick tear-jerking romance.
Our hero John grew up with a silent, meticulously organi ...more
Next time fate smiles on you: Finish your time in the Army, let fate take its course with the husband of the woman you love, Marry your soul mate, raise the autistic child of the fore mentioned and now deceased husband of the woman you love, keep your father's coin collection to honor his memory, have two children with your soul mate, and... OK finally sell the coins to pay for your c ...more
Ok, I loved it!!! When is Nicolas coming out with a new book!?!?!?
"She pauses then and crosses her arms, glancing over her shoulder to make sure no one has followed her. Finally, she seems to relax. And then I feel as if I'm witnessing a miracle, as ever so slowly she raises her face toward the moon. I watch her drink in the sight, sensing the flood of memories she's unleashed and wanting nothing more than to let her know I'm here. But instead I stay where I am and stare ...more
I really do not want to like you. I was all happy living in my somewhat snobby literary world where I turned my nose up at your novels. So many people love you and gush over your books. I would either bite my tongue to prevent myself from voicing my superior opinion because I was trying to be the good non-biased readers' advisory librarian; or if my friends were all gaga I would roll my eyes and talk about what good literature really is.
Yeah, well, then I saw a kick ass pre ...more
Una de las mejores novelas que he leí ...more
This is my usual reaction after reading a Nicholas Sparks book. I adore this Guy's writing .Some may say his book is predictable,But even if it is, i enjoy it .In Dear john , Savannah and john love each other .I thought they were gonna end up with each other but fate had other plans with John going to the army .I loved the character of John,he is not perfect which makes him more real,whereas i cannot say the same about Savannah .At times i thought she was selfish . I found Tim's character ve ...more
Si lo sono un pò in ritardo..ma meglio tardi che mai ^_^
Grazie Tizi per avermi fatto leggere questo libro, che mi ha completamente rapito e straziato il cuore. L'ho appena finito e non sono lucida..soprattutto non ci vedo perchè sto ancora piangendo. ç_ç Non ci sono parole per descrivere l'amore che si sente, si avete capito bene si sente, fino a far esplodere il proprio cuore leggendo queste pagine. Semplicemente bellissimo.
Bundan yıllar yıllar önce, film gösterimden kalktıktan kısa bir süre sonra olsa gerek, filmini izlemiştim. Tabii yaş romantizm, aşk gibi kavramları yeni yeni keşfeden bir aralıkta olduğu için yetişkinlerin arasına kaynak yapmıştım. Hiç kimse de filme odaklanmış, Channing Tatum’u kesen beni fark etmedi. (Hayatımda yer etmiş filmlerin yüzde doksanını böyle izlemişimdir zaten.)
O zaman, filmden oldukça etkilenmiştim ve kitabı açt ...more
(Me quedo con el final de la película, sin duda ♡)
First things first, I'm going to tell you - hopefully briefly - about the new shelf I made and also, why I ever picked up this unfinished book again.
This is my second attempt at writing this review... stupid crashingness!
My Breakup Book Challenge
I realised, some time last year, that I have an unfinished book for every doomed relationship in my history, it's not many - mind you - but still. A weird thing to notice.... 13 years after the first was shelved, no? And whilst I didn't really care wh ...more
John decides he will enlist in the army as he f ...more
I don't usually surf in the romance section in the bookstore. One day i accidently saw Dear John on the shelf of deserted counter. There were many novels of him including "The Notebook", "A walk to remember", "Message in a bottle" so on..
After reading the question on back of the book i bought it without hesitation. The question was : ".. can they ...more
