For example I could say swear words (curse words if you prefer) are "inappropriate" in my role as teacher, but what I mean is that they are inappropriate for use in the classroom or for use by children. If I meant that people should never under any circumstances use them there are better words for that such as "offensive" or "wrong".
Even then your question would need to be better defined because people are offended by different things. But obviously the author would have thought every single word he chose was perfectly appropriate for the story he was trying to tell!(less)
My problem with other Sparks novels:
His beginnings are always very slow , so until now I never gave more than 4 stars to any of his books. But that was not the case at all with this one.I loved every page of it. I never was dissatisfied at all, actually I couldn't stop thinking about the book. If you liked A Walk to Remember and The N ...more
(Is it just me or Milers really look stoned here*kidding*)
Amazing book, it's kind of emotional and depressing in the end but still it has a happy ending. Ronnie was like a character that I can personally relate to and the dialogues are just humorous. It's kinda like predictable but all in all it's really meaningful and highly recommended to all Sparks fans.

To be honest, I realized I went into reading it with a bad attitude. *is ashamed* I'll explain my resistance... two words... one person... Miley Cyrus. Not a huge fan of hers, so when I started this book, her image and voice resonated in my brain and it matched perfectly with Ro ...more
“Sometimes you have to be apart from people you love, but that doesn't make you love them any less. Sometimes you love them more.”
Astonishing good. It's my first Nicholas Sparks novel and I don't intend it to be my last after reading this. I like the way he writes and the way he depicts life in the most real way possible. This book had something true to it, well, it must have been the characters who had a vibe of realness in them that most books lack sometimes.
Ronnie is a seventeen-year-old g ...more

Το διάβασα πολύ ευχάριστα, αλλά σε ένα σημείο προς το τέλος μου το χάλασε, (εσείς που το διαβάσατε ξέρετε σε τι αναφέρομαι, εσείς που θα το διαβάσετε θα καταλάβετε) θεωρώ ότι το τράβηξε οοοσο μπορούσε για να βγάλει συγκίνηση. Δεν ήταν ανάγκη! Εκεί ψυχοπ ...more
And those were understatements. EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO KNOWS HOW TO READ MUST READ THIS!!! Geezz. I cried a lot.
Half way through the book, I decided I would download the osp for the movie. And while reading, I was listening to the song over and over again. It didn't bother me. It actually made me appreciate the book more. A long time a go, after reading The Choice, I swore to myself I will never read a Nicholas Sparks's book again until my fri ...more

En el comienzo, hay misterio, al final, hay una confirmación, pero es en el medio donde todas las emociones se asientan para hacer que todo valga la pena".
¡¡Amé, amé, AMÉ este libro!!
Sin embargo... ¡a leer con Kleenex!
Los que vieron la peli, ya están prevenidos de que se puede terminar así:
o, como en mi caso, así:
One of the main reasons why I adore this book is the writing, I love how the characters interact with each other and everyone has their sassy pants on. I had fun reading this book :D
I've been fangirling during the cute moments between Ronnie and Will. They banter and kid around with each other a lot, but you could also sense the co ...more

“Life, he realize, was much like a song. In the beginning there is mystery, in the end there is confirmation, but it's in the middle where all the emotion resides to make the whole thing... worthwhile.”
The Last Song is my first Nicholas Sparks' book and I am positively certain this book will not be my last. The Last Song is a heartfelt story about first love, loss, the common problems of a teenager's life and is filled with many emotions and stunning, but imperfect characters that develop throug ...more
Having a first view of the book I could tell that probably I don't belong to the "target group" that this novel is more suitable for...the plot and well Nicholas Sparks previous one ...more
I originally heard about The Last Song because the movie was coming out some years ago. I watched the movie and fell in love. Eventually I thought to buy the book and it sat on my shelf for the longest time. Finally I picked it up and I'm so very glad I did.
I can't began to explain how much more I love the book rather than the movie. It was just so much more insightful to the characters and their stories.
Plot- I knew the plot and all the twists going in so I thought I wouldn't en ...more
Since Nicholas Sparks wrote it, it is already a given that it will be sad. He always adds a dramatic twist at the end of his books, which is why I enjoy reading them! I will not spoil what happens but he gives indications early on as to what will occur so it becomes predictable. However, the ending of this book is ...more
