Cover Talk: It's ok. Not anything special. =/
My Thoughts: I enjoyed the book. It was a quick read. But I didn't like it that much. I mean I've read better books by Nicholas Sparks. This wasn't his best one.
I really loved the story. And I liked how it was written too. But it was lacking something. I can't put my finger on what.... but something was missing...
I didn't cry while reading the book which is a new one for me because till now all Sparks' books have made me cry. I did cry a little. But not as much as people say they did.
I liked the characters. They were real and flawed and the character-reader connection was maintained pretty good.
I can't say anything more because I read this a while ago and I don't remember much anymore. I know, crappy review =/ I'll try to review books as soon as I read them from now on.
In the end I'll just say I liked the movie better. It touched me more than the book did (another new one).
