it was amazing
bookshelves: summer-2013

Dear John the movie has been one of my favourite movies, like I literally have the script memorised. However, the book was completely different. In the book, Tim - the man Savannah ends up marrying - is her best friend which makes sense that she would fall in love and marry in the end. However, in the movie, he was an old neighbour and that made him look like a pedophile. I got a bit confused because I kept comparing the movie to the book.

I still think Savannah was selfish. She could have waited 9 more months!
(view spoiler)
Lastly, I don't know which I like best, the movie or the book.
