Dear John by Nicholas Sparks (Book Review)

Title: Dear John
Author: Nicholas Sparks
Rating: 4/5

Savannah Lyn Curtis and John Tyree are two young people who fell in love in a place and time that they never thought they could. They’ve shared a love that can only come once in a lifetime.

However, this “perfect” love will try to combat time and distance.

Yes, it tried to overcome and fight those two essential elements of love. But, no matter how much they tried, they are weak and the more time and distance come between them, the lesser the chance for their relationship to survive.

Like any other long distance relationships, it ended but it never died. There might be unanswered questions, but it all boils down to this one thing. True love is when you are willing to let go of that person not only for their happiness but also because it is the right thing to do. Some says, “Doing the right thing wasn’t easy” and sometimes, it ends in tragedy. This tragedy is when you you cannot be with the person you love most no matter how much you tried.

Quotes you’d love:


“You’re the best thing that ever happened to me. You were my best friend and my lover and I don’t regret a single moment of it. You made me feel alive again and most of all, you gave me my father.-John.”

“It’s possible to go on, no matter how impossible it seems and that at a time, the grief lessens.”

Wow. I had become quite bored with Sparks’ latest novels, feeling they were cookie-cutter romance novels, but this book is a return to his old writing style. Similar to The Notebook, and A Walk to Remember, this book is a must read for any Sparks’ fan, as well as anyone wanting an old fashioned love story…full of love, heartache, romance, fulfillment, tragedy, and sacrifice. Well done, well written, and just fabulous.
