Dear John by Nicholas Sparks

Dear John

An angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life--until he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah. Their mutual attraction quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah waiting for John to finish his tour of duty, and John wanting to settle down with the woman who captured his heart. But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else. "Dear John," the letter read...and with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives were changed forever. Returning home, John must come to grips with the fact that Savannah, now married, is still his true love--and face the hardest decision of his life.

I am so happy that I have bought and own this book and I am so happy that I read it before I watched the movie.  If I had to be honest, I would have to say that I prefer the movie to the book, mainly because I could feel the romance more of the two characters, watching the movie, and also I loved the ending in the movie as the book ending was quite sad.....

100000 out of 10

I read this one too but didn't like John too much. I also would have enjoyed more had I not read the prologue first which gave away the ending. I like to be surprised. 100000 out of 10 rating, wow! You REALLY like it! I think my husband is funny when he gives his 800 stars on things, but you out do that.
