Ypical Sparks fare star crossed lovers torn apart by fate life what have you I really enjoyed the interaction between John and his father a lot than I did his relationship with Savannah maybe because it seemed far real I never warmed up to Savannah even though she was supposed to be the perfect lovely Southern young lady And like SO many other reviews on here I too thought the ending was horrid As I was nearing the end of my audiobook I knew exactly how it would end but I still had another disc to go It was seriously painfulI can get behind tragicunreuited love stories but this one ust seemed so pointless John literally gives up everything he has in his entire life for someone who treats him badly for 90% of their relationship I always know what I m getting myself into with a Sparks book but in this case I left feeling totally dissatisfied it s like when you go to a buffet and you know what you re about to eat is terrible for you but you binge anyways and have massive regrets immediately afterward I ll still go see the movie mostly because my sister in law is super excited to see it but part of me hopes this is one of those instances where Hollywood romanticizes things and changes the ending This book could really use it Dear John Nicholas SparksThe story is about a romantic couple who fall in love over one summer They are separated during the man s military service John Tyree the main character has a father with Asperger s syndrome The story is partially set in Wilmington North Carolina where John s father was a single parent who had difficulty having meaningful conversation with his son and has an obsession with coin collecting John knows there is something wrong with him but he has never been to a doctor to find out what it is Feeling a lack of direction and no good fatherly influence in his life John enlisted in the US Armed Forces John returns home on leave from the army when he gets news of his father s death *After the return he seeks out Savannah where he is surprised to learn of her life events following her marriage * the return he seeks out Savannah where he is surprised to learn of her life events following her marriage another

happy ending Though I have been a fan of his The Notebook is one of ending Though I have been a fan of his The Notebook is one of favorites I am growing weary of these endings I A Heart of Stone just don t like to invest my time and the roller coaster of emotions he sends you through only to be left unsatisfied If you ve seen the movie Cold Mountain you may get what I mean I felt the same way at the end of it HelloI spent 3 hours watching this movie for this Anyway I felt like this could have been a really good book had it ended differently I mean the poor guy is left with absolutely nothing while thanks to himshe goes off into the sunset with another man Yes it was a great selfless act that he did but it doesn t make for a great ending Did I mention the man was left with nothing heh.
