Nice :) I've never watched nor read the book. This will be my first book by Nicholas Sparks! Hopefully it's good!


Steph Johnson (stephjhnsn) | 33 comments I enjoyed the movie. But i've had the book for years now and it just sat on my book shelf never been read.

Of course!

I've read about 17% and it's quite engaging. Easy to read writing style.

Christina | 4418 comments @Steph
I think we live in different time zones so start whenever you can. It's already 4pm here in Sydney Australia so I've already started :)


Steph Johnson (stephjhnsn) | 33 comments Oh okay. Will do! Its 12:45 am here. So ill start in a bit!


Christina | 4418 comments 27%: The pacing is good for a realistic book, it's like John and Savannah's conversation are like everyday conversations of two people getting to know each other.


Steph Johnson (stephjhnsn) | 33 comments I am on chapter 7. its going pretty good. Kicking myself for never reading the book. Its good and i love the way everything is described. you dont get that by watching the movie. Everything just seems natural and flowing nicely.


María | 2107 comments Sorry girls! I couldn't start it today. I have a very romantic day with my boyfriend <3 So I don't have any time for this book :(


Christina | 4418 comments Nps enjoy!

Good to know it's better than the movie...
I know I'll pass on ever watching the movie because I don't want to go through that again :(


Steph Johnson (stephjhnsn) | 33 comments The book is totally better than the movie. I agree.

I finished it!. I like it. It is very sad but it is a Nicholas Sparks's Novel so I can't say I'm shocked.

María | 2107 comments The movie has two ends. I don't remember which is the alternative, the one is like the book or the open one...


Christina | 4418 comments Either way I don't take sad endings or open ended endings well :P Yup, definitely should've expected this from a Nicholas Sparks book!


Steph Johnson (stephjhnsn) | 33 comments Finished! Its sad but its a good book! The ending made cry. Now i will have to watch the movie later this week and compare the two.


María | 2107 comments Yea! I want to watch the movie again too

mollusskka I haven't started yet but i will soon. I'd watched the movie but didn't really like it. Hope the book is much better.


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

I usually read his books first and then watch the movie because well they are cute but not that good


message 31: by [deleted user] (new)

@eKa comparing our books i saw that you have my sister's keeper on your to-read,message me if you would like to buddy read that :)


mollusskka That's a good decision, Lidya.


mollusskka @Lidya, okay, sure! Been wanting to read it and once again I'd watched the movie first hahaha. Maybe i'll read it next month. I'll message you when I'm ready.


message 34: by [deleted user] (new)

I have so many br's I will probably have time in August anyway :) My friend wants me to see the movie but I am always like "book firsttt"


mollusskka @Lidya August is fine. How about you let me know anytime you're ready?


message 36: by [deleted user] (new)

Ok I will message you :)


mollusskka I just finished chapter one. John's father is the character I'm willing to read more and more. His story is saddening. I think I like this father son relationships more than John and Savannah. Okay, it's to early to say that.

Well in my opinion don't even bother.No comparison to other Sparks books,this one is plain mushy and boring
