    One thought on “Dear John

    1. Arlene on said:

      Dear John by Nicholas Sparks is one of those books I ve developed a love hate relationship with I love, love, love the first part of the book, and I immediately fell for the main character, John Tyree But when he gets his Dear John letter, it was all down hill from there, and I have to say I was left in angst The ending is to some extent depressing, but I do have to give it to Sparks because he paints a realistic picture However, someone needs to let the man know that he s writing fiction and so [...]

      Spoiler Alert Though it started out really well, I hated the ending In typical Sparks fashion, your not left with a happy ending Though I have been a fan of his The Notebook is one of my favorites , I am growing weary of these endings I 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 fo [...]

      This book needs to have a different title like maybeThe RehashorThe Tragic Tragedy Seriously how many times do we have to hear about the same scenes Ok so I didn t hate it, but really it was a bit of an overload I had it coming though, I mean what did I expect by picking up a Nicholas Sparks novel Sparks is a popular author for a reason His writing draws you in but not forcefully The words gently tug you along and before you know it you have to finish the book I will give him props for that beca [...]

      Reread 2017 When all is said and done, we do what we do for one another For friendship Not for country, not for patriotism, not because we re programmed killing machines, but because of the guy next to you You fight for your friend, to keep him alive, and he fights for you, and everything about the army is built on this simple premise When I first read Dear John I was an optimistic, romantic teenager I gave it 3 stars because I wasn t happy with it s ending, I wanted the happily ever after.Now I [...]

    5. Katia on said:

      OK, soI finally finished Like a lot of other people, I read this simply because I saw the preview for the movie and I HAVE to read a book before I see the film adaptation In this case, I really wish I wasn t so anal retentive.Anyhoo, the book Typical 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, [...]

    6. *eKa* on said:

      If Savannah can wait for 21 years to give her virginity to someone she lovesThen why can t she wait a little bit longer for John to come back from the army She s madly in love with him Is that what a nice and a sweet person supposed to do I could handle the slowness and the too much narration of this book but THAT THING, the one that I mentioned above I couldn t take it Really She s just unbelievable She doesn t even know what she really wants Okay, so, this is my second Nicholas Sparks s novel [...]

    7. Kristy on said:

      Mom recommended this one I hate Nick Sparks writing It s too simplistic and yet too formal In my opinion, no one in this day and age is allowed to use for when they mean because Too plot driven and he spells everything out I might have loved this in 7th grade

    8. Brianna (The Book Vixen) on said:

      Let me start off by saying that I am not a re reader My philosophy is why re read when you can read something new, right But when I saw the re release of Dear John by Nicholas Sparks with Channing Tatum on the cover and the fact that a movie was made based on the novel, I wanted to revisit John and Savannah.I think it goes without saying that Nicholas Sparks is one of my favorite authors If Sparks writes it, I will read it His books are on my auto buy list It all started with the movie The Noteb [...]

      Opening Line My name is John Tyree I was born in 1977, and I grew up in Wilmington, North Carolina You can always tell you re reading a great book when you find yourself skipping ahead into the final chapters to see how things will be resolved, even though you ve vowed you wouldn t Love doesn t always have a happy ending especially when it comes to a Nicholas Sparks novel and this is a wonderful, albeit quick tear jerking romance Our hero John grew up with a silent, meticulously organized father [...]

    10. Mochizuki on said:

      I would recommend this read to anyone who wanted something easy to read that would NOT make you think Dear John,Next time fate smiles on you Finish your time in the Army, let fate take its course with the husband of the woman you love, Marry your soul mate, raise the autistic child of the fore mentioned and now deceased husband of the woman you love, keep your father s coin collection to honor his memory, have two children with your soul mate, and OK finally sell the coins to pay for your childr [...]

      This was a great book I m a huge Nicolas Sparks fan have read all of his books now This is one of my favorites Great story, easy to read, it really sucks you in Ok, I loved it When is Nicolas coming out with a new book

    12. Caroline on said:

      I was looking for a book to read for the El trip home but didn t have time to really search This was in the discard section of the library and I grabbed it thinking that it couldn t be that bad After all, the Notebook was a good guilty pleasure Could not have been wrong Ugh I wanted to tear my eyes out and stomp on them after reading this I felt dirty and compromised as if I had too much to drink one night and woke up next to a naked Mike Huckabee This book was beyond preachy and condescending [...]

    13. Sarah on said:

      DISAPPOINTING This poor guy gives literally everything he has to a woman he loved for a few months when he was a kid and leaves himself with nothing by the age of 30 so she can help her sick husband live Sorry not the romantic story I was looking for Yeah, it s great for little Miss Savanah, but poor John ends up 3o with his whole entire life ahead of him and nothing to show for his past including the only things his father held dear or to share with the family we have to hope he eventually has.

      I can read this book a million times and i am sure that i ll cry each time Why does love has to be so difficult,why does Nicholas Sparks always has to make me cry Why does he has to write such books which are so amazing and wonderful and frustratingly good.I mean this is so unfair,everytime i pick Nicholas spark s book I know at the end I am gonna cry and amazingly I am gonna love the book immensely.I cried a little reading The Notebook and A walk to remember which were good but Dear John is jus [...]

    15. Connie on said:

      Dear Nicholas Sparks,I really do not want to like you I was all happy living in my somewhat snobby literary world where I turned my nose up at your novels So many people love you and gush over your books I would either bite my tongue to prevent myself from voicing my superior opinion because I was trying to be the good non biased readers advisory librarian or if my friends were all gaga I would roll my eyes and talk about what good literature really is Yeah, well, then I saw a kick ass preview f [...]

      Here s the last sentences from the epilogue that really made a deep tug at my heartstrings She pauses then and crosses her arms, glancing over her shoulder to make sure no one has followed her Finally, she seems to relax And then I feel as if I m witnessing a miracle, as ever so slowly she raises her face toward the moon I watch her drink in the sight, sensing the flood of memories she s unleashed and wanting nothing than to let her know I m here But instead I stay where I am and stare up at th [...]

    17. Amy on said:

      I really liked the narrator of this book a lot I thought he did a fantastic job That said, I was disappointed with the ending Up to the ending the story was good a little sappy but I like that every now and then I particularly liked the story with John and his Dad Spoilers Once Savannah broke up with John and married Tim I knew it wasn t going to end in a good way Tim was sick and either he dies so that John can get the girl or John bows out and gets nothing Either way it would be crappy It ende [...]

      No es demasiado sensiblera, pero tiene momentos que, de vez en cuando, hacen que el coraz n reaccione a las palabras Eso es lo que tiene la escritura de Sparks, que cuando le sale un producto redondo, consigue emocionarte hasta la m dula En esta novela lo que destacar a es la relaci n del protagonista con su padre, por encima de la que tiene con Savannah Creo que es la parte que m s me ha decantado para ponerle las cuatro estrellas Realmente conseguida.Una de las mejores novelas que he le do de [...]

      La gente m s triste que he conocido en mi vida es la que no siente una pasi n profunda por algo La pasi n y la satisfacci n van cogidas de la mano, y sin ellas, la felicidad s lo es temporal, porque no existe nada que la haga perdurar Me quedo con el final de la pel cula, sin duda

    22. Annette mathews on said:

      WOW This is my usual reaction after reading a Nicholas Sparks book I adore this Guy s writing.Some may say his book is predictable,But even if it is, i enjoy it.In Dear john , Savannah and john love each other.I thought they were gonna end up with each other but fate had other plans with John going to the army.I loved the character of John,he is not perfect which makes him real,whereas i cannot say the same about Savannah.At times i thought she was selfish I found Tim s character very endearing [...]

      John Tyree grew up in Wilmington, North Carolina A couple of years after John had graduated he felt like he was at a bit of a loose end He d had a few local jobs, but nothing ever lasted for long before he moved onto the next job Although he lived with his father their relationship was pretty strained and when John had spare time he spent it surfing Surfing was the only thing that he really enjoyed, but he knew had to find something else to do John decides he will enlist in the army as he feels [...]

      This was an assignment for a bookclub so I plunged in even though my last experience with Nicholas Sparks left a bad aftertaste in my mouth If The Notebook left a bad aftertaste, Dear John had me dry heaving Books like this make me wish I could just leave something unread, but once I start the first page the wheels have been set in motion and I m there for the entire ride, no matter how dismal the scenery I knew I was in trouble from the first sentence of the prologue What does it mean to truly [...]

      Another great Nicholas Sparks romance novel I love his work because he makes you laugh, cry, fall in love and always wish for the best in every novel that he writes This story was a love story that people could relate to It is a story about true love and is a wonderful read.

      First things first, I m going to tell you hopefully briefly about the new shelf I made and also, why I ever picked up this unfinished book again This is my second attempt at writing this review stupid crashingness My Breakup Book Challenge I realised, some time last year, that I have an unfinished book for every doomed relationship in my history, it s not many mind you but still A weird thing to notice 13 years after the first was shelved, no And whilst I didn t really care whether I ever finish [...]

      First of all i have to mention this is the first maybe the last novel which i read from endless number of romances of Sparks It s than a romance I don t usually surf in the romance section in the bookstore One day i accidently saw Dear John on the shelf of deserted counter There were many novels of him including The Notebook , A walk to remember , Message in a bottle so on After reading the question on back of the book i bought it without hesitation The question was can they survive the distanc [...]

      I really enjoyed reading this Even if I saw the movie before I read the book I was still moved.I fell easily into the story and lived every exchange of words.It was much complex than the movie and I really liked the way Nicholas described all the action and the characters Even though I couldn t give the book 5 stars because the ending made me so disappointed But i still recommend this for anyone who is looking for an easy but good book that will make you cry like a baby.
