"Dear John"

by Nicholas Sparks, 2006, 434p (large print), rating=3

I started reading this almost a couple weeks ago but I left it at my sister-in-law's and didn't get a chance to pick it up until yesterday. I found the beginning unexciting so I didn't feel a rush to get it back. It got better! It was an easy read. Mr. Sparks doesn't mess with exotic words or deep thinking kind of writing. I believe he appeals to readers who likes honorable love stories and he is good at it. Here he ventures to convey true love.

Hmmm, the title is Dear John, now why was I surprised that John (main character) received the infamous Dear John letter? See, John while serving in the arm forces received a letter from Savannah, his girl that promised to wait for him, saying that she had fallen in love with someone else. Ouch!! What else can go wrong? Oh yeah, his dad. What next? Well, he discovers Savannah's new life and in honor of true love he does not stand in the way of allowing her this new happiness. He even uncovers a way he can anonymously make it better for her. What a man! ~By the way, Savannah's quite a woman herself ... you'll have to read the book to find out.

Really sweet book about relationships between lovers, friends, siblings, and father-son. John may not have gotten the girl, but then again... did he where it counted?
