The Best of Me
Nov 01, 2011
I think it's a bad sign when my favorite character in a book is the dead guy. Tuck, the friend and mentor of the two main characters, has died and left specific plans for how everyone is to proceed. Tuck is the only character who I felt consistently drawn to and enjoyed reading about. Overall, the story was heart-wrenching, in typical Sparks fashion. The story of Dawson and Amanda and their love for and loss of one another was touching. Both of these characters were realistically flawed and facing real and major obstacles in their lives. But something about the character interactions disappointed me, except for when they were flashing back on their time with Tuck. I felt the story was predictable and, for me, unsatisfying. I think I'm losing my taste for the tortured, twisted love stories.
