    You can also see my review and Matt had the perfect relationship They had much in common and a completeness but when Matt suddenly leaves the relationship Katie is left with many uestions and wonders what went wrong Matt is someone Katie could’ve shared the rest of her life with How could she have been so wrong about their relationshipNot long after Matt’s departure she receives a package in the mail She recognizes Matt’s handwriting on the package instantly and when she opens it she finds a book titled Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas As Katie reads the diary she’s shocked All at once she learns about a woman named Suzanne and her son Nicholas In the diary Suzanne writes about her life before Nicholas her journey through relationships and the joyous times she had with Nicholas from his birth up through the first year of his life She writes directly to Nicholas and shares memories with him about his father She wants him to understand how much she loves him and his father and just how special their life was togetherI first read this book in 2006 when I was pregnant with my second child In hindsight there’s no doubt that hormones played a part in my reaction because I bawled and bawled over the book which is why I decided to read this one for my February #UltimateReadingChallenge–tear jerker I can still remember gushing over it to everyone and influenced all my friends to read it I honestly couldn’t say enough about it I think the majority of my emotions stem from the fact that it’s a mother writing to her baby son about old memories and how her life was complete once he came into the world It’s something I’ve always wanted to do write to my children about our time together so they can read about it later in life Another reason I was moved was because I personally went through similar health experiences just like Suzanne and her story felt real to me I know some might say the writing isn’t spectacular but I thought the narrative was particularly Suzanne’s writings Just when you think you know what’s happening a surprising twist is thrown in–even at the endI was thoroughly involved in this story for the second time and flew through it however I don’t think I was as emotional when reading it this time around Don’t get me wrong I teared up for a bit but I didn’t feel as affected by it this time There were parts that I forgot and the story felt uite fresh to me but I prepared myself ahead of time for the end because I remembered how emotional I was after the first reading There was one part in the book that felt a little confusing and maybe a little unrealistic to me but it was easily overlooked Regardless it still gets five stars from me5

    This book was the worst I've read I actually felt less intelligent when I finished it I feel empathy for people who think this is uality writing Put it this way the book was so bad that the movie was better I actually liked the movie a lot which means it wasn't the story it was the author Patterson needs to stick to mystery or whatever he does Did I mention I didn't like this book at all

    Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas is an amazing love story for me it was a page turner that I read in less than 24 hours uite a feat with a nursing baby It is an incredible fictional love story set in New York and Martha’s Vineyard Part of the book includes experiences from the author’s life It starts out with Katie whose lover of 11 months Matt from whom she thought a marriage proposal imminent unexpectedly leaves with no explanation He sends Katie an apologetic letter saying he is to blame and that he hopes she can understand better by reading Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas We feel a tremendous amount of joy and heartache sharing in Katie’s experience reading Suzanne’s diary for her son Nicholas Throughout the novel one is anxiously reading on to find out the mystery of why Matt would leave and what happened to turn upside down a once picture perfect life There are so many interesting twists in the plot which capture one’s interest In addition the book imparts some important life lessons along the way Messages that come from it are the importance of a balanced life the importance of finding the right person to be with and the importance of family and love As a mother to three young children I wholly related to Suzanne’s feelings toward her son Nicholas I also related to the loving relationship between Suzanne and her husbandI think I might want to name my next son Nicholas after reading this book if I have anotherHere are sweet poems written to Nicholas which imparts the joy of having a beautiful innocent baby1You’re my little Nicky Knack I love you so you love me backI love your toes your knees your nose And everywhere a big kiss goesI kiss you tons and know what then I have to kiss you once again2Nickels and dimesI love you in rhythmsI love you in rhymesI love you in laughterHere and ever afterThen I love you a millionGazillion timesHere is the story of the 5 ballsImagine life is a game in which you are juggling five balls The balls are called work family health friends and integrity And you’re keeping all of them in the air But one day you finally come to understand that work is a rubber ball If you drop it it will bounce back The other four balls family health friends integrity are made of glass If you drop one of these it will be irrevocably scuffed nicked perhaps even shattered And once you truly understand the lesson of the five balls you will have the beginnings of balance in your lifeOther good thoughts“Life doesn’t go on forever Enjoy every moment of it”“Isn’t it lucky”“You are growing up before our eyes and it is such a glorious thing to watch I savor each moment I hope all the other mommies and daddies are remembering to savor these moments and have the time to do so I love watching you grow but at the same time I don’t like seeing this time fly by so fast It’s hard to explain; I don’t really know how But there’s something so precious about watching your child day after day after day I want to hold on to every moment every smile every single hug and kiss I suppose it has to do with loving to be needed and needing to give love”“It’s late and Daddy and I are being silly geese We couldn’t resist so we sneaked into your room and watched over you for several moments We held hands and blew you kisses we hugged each other as we watched you sleep which is one of the greatest pleasures in the word don’t miss watching your child sleep” Eric and I LOVE to watch little Michael sleeping we can’t help going in to look at him several time between when he goes to bed and we go to bedview spoiler“Oh my dear little boy my innocent little sweetheart my baby son forever I miss you so muchI miss you so much I miss you so much sweet baby I always will But isn’t it lucky that I knew you held you and loved you for the time before God took you away Isn’t it lucky that I got to know you sweet little boy my darling darling son” hide spoiler

    I've read of James Patterson's novels than I care to admit and from what I've observed their general pattern is a little bit of exposition followed by some drama and suspense which is mostly boring or unbelievably contrived or both followed by some sappy overly sentimental unimaginative and highly predictable denouement Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas is a deviation from Patterson's mode of operation in the following respect it isn't suspenseful or even remotely thrilling Not even if you stand on your head suint your eyes and read it backwards While preparing to jump out of an airplane Flying over the Marianas Trench It's just plain cheesy in a vomit inducing kind of way And that's a bold statement coming from a cheese lover On principle I like to finish anything I start but I couldn't even get through this one This book is the sappiest corniest lamest most boring and unromantic piece of crap since well probably since the Patterson novel that immediately preceded it Love story Please Do yourself a favor and watch The Notebook instead

    I still rue the day I picked up this book from the library and even reading the first page The overly contrived plot contains unbelievably perfect characters and comes off as just hokey and ridiculous Oh how I regret reading to the end The sappy sentimentality The over the top crude attempts at tear jerker moments I resent James Patterson's theft of the three hours of my life it took to read this although it would have been less had I not kept putting it down to debate whether to invest any time When the book ended I hated the characters My contempt for this book ranks right up there with the movie City of Angels which I still regret going to see Any tears I shed were from rage and frustration

    I know opinions vary hugely about this book but I have got to say I really enjoyed it I must also admit I only read it for a Xmas Challenge read a book with the name Nicholas in the titleIn my opinion Patterson took his skills at writing suspense and applied them to a romance instead There were his short choppy chapters which always end in such a way that you are forced to go straight on to the next one Then there was the actual suspense the fact that the reader has to wait until the very end to find out what happened And of course there was the final twist which always comes just when you think you know it allIt is a very sad book too with many tear jerking moments Of course it was a bit corny and the characters a bit too perfect but most of the best romances are a bit that way Only perfect people have perfect romances after all That's why us ordinary people like to read themAnyway it turned out to be a very pleasurable read and I am very glad that taking part in challenges often delivers me these little gems I would otherwise never have read

    I have never read any James Patterson books and after reading this one I don't think I'll ever read another There were so many things wrong with this book I don't know where to begin This book is a love story and I usually love a good romance but it was so saccharine sweet it made it unbelievable I didn't find it at all touching okay maybe when the second twist was revealed but everything before and after that was so sappy and overly sentimental that it was hard to stand Thank goodness this was a uick read For me a love story has to at least give me a good cry for it to be any good and this one left me unemotionalMost of the story is about a woman writing a diary to her newborn son The diary contains how her and her son's father met and their undying love for each other and their newborn son I like this idea but even the way this was written made it unbelievable There were times where I asked myself Who is she writing this diary to Is she really writing in this diary about how her son's father unbuttoned her blouse slipped her blouse off put his hands on her hips and bed her Really is that something you would tell your son I was confusedI think Patterson also meant for this book to me somewhat inspirational leaving us with cheesy metaphors and uotes like those you'll find in fortune cookies inspirational daily calendars or mass chain emails Like I said completely unmoved I was left only with its sticky syrupy sweetness that I can't seem to remove Yuck

    I get why so many people like this so no shade to all the people who recommended it to meBut it did not work for me at allI know the diary was supposed to make Suzanne endearing because of how positive happy and kind she was but I ended up hating her and all the other characters in this book before the big reveal Nicholas was a super baby I kept thinking Suzanne's either crazy or a pathological liar and she's just writing crap down because NO baby can do this stuff this early this is coming from a new mom who's son has been early in almost everything Nicholas made my kid look like an idiot I like the kind love interest never the bad boy but oh shoot what was his name the guy was so inhumanly perfect that it started to drive me insane Suzanne's dilemma actually really tugged at my heart and I even stopped the book to discuss with my husband what we would do in her terrible and heart wrenching situation But she was also inhumanly perfect and got on my nerves by the end Katie was the only character that I liked to the endThe plot was extremely slow and I understand why the author was trying to make us fall irrevocably in love with these characters before the big reveal happens But as I said I just ended up trudging through a boring plot only to hate everyone in the bookAnd lastly the reveal When it happened despite not liking anyone in the book any I actually was feeling the emotion It really did suck and I felt for the characters so much But then the book ended and I got really mad Because that was it That was all there was It honestly didn't feel like the author had a story to tell it felt like he just wanted to make everyone cry so he made infallibly perfect cast of characters and then came up with the worst thing he could think of to happen to them and then he ended the book It was like the goal wasn't to tell a story the goal was to make a tear jerker Which just bugged meAgain I get why so many people love this book the big reveal is VERY emotional and if you love the characters it would be even so But I just really didn't like it

    Katie a book editor in New York has been left by the man that she hoped to marry someday Matt a poet from Martha's Vineyard drops off a diary by Katie's door to help her understand his actions His first wife Suzanne wrote this diary to their son Nicholas telling him about her move to Martha's Vineyard falling in love with his father and the happiness she found in motherhoodWhen Suzanne had health problems a friend told her a story about getting better balance in one's life Life is a game in which you are juggling five balls work family health friends and integrity You're trying to keep them all in the air But work is a rubber ball that will bounce if it is dropped The other four balls are made of glass and will be harmed or shattered if they are droppedThe author had the experience of losing a woman he loved when she developed a brain tumor Years later he married his present wife In the book Patterson shows that a person can fear to love again wondering if they are setting themselves up for heartacheThe book had some good messages about love and about keeping balance in one's life But it was overly sweet with a predictable plot The author seemed to follow a similar formula as Nicholas Sparks so fans of Sparks' romance novels would probably enjoy this story

    This is not the James Patterson I knew It takes a lot of confidence to move into a different genre and Patterson has accomplished that move spectacularly When I was about half through I wondered why I was still reading It was a nice story but then with an exuisite sense of timing Patterson tightened the screws and nice became became hypnotic and then riveting Still I was not prepared for the ending which I will of course not reveal
