    When you look at modern Women s Fiction or Chick Lit, as it is called for whatever reason , Nicholas Sparks is one of the few names you cannot turn away from that easily He has writtennovels than many other authors, most of them have become quite popular, and if you take a look at his Goodreads page, you might realize that thirteen of his novels havethan 100,000 ratings There was only one author who I discovered to havenovels than Sparks with such an achievement on Goodreads When you look at modern Women s Fiction or Chick Lit, as it is called for whatever reason , Nicholas Sparks is one of the few names you cannot turn away from that easily He has writtennovels than many other authors, most of them have become quite popular, and if you take a look at his Goodreads page, you might realize that thirteen of his novels havethan 100,000 ratings There was only one author who I discovered to havenovels than Sparks with such an achievement on Goodreads.It s easy to figure out why people like this novel, and I understand and value all of the raving opinions The concept is pretty interesting, too A teenage girl one step before entering adulthood trying to deal with life and the obstacles thrown at her, her dysfunctional family trying to hold together what hasn t already been shattered, and this gorgeous boy from neighborhood who is so sweet and courteous and attentive that it seems like Nicholas Sparks wants you as a reader to fall in love with him as well And that s already the problem I just don t buy it People can be as beautiful as possible, but it s impossible to judge whether the soul behind that beauty is just as beautiful or maybe ugly However, Sparks defined Will, the protagonist s love interest, as sweet and beautiful and successful and did I mention beautiful Throw in the facts that Will rescues endangered animal species, has a lot of friends and experience and is one of the best atheletes in his town Let s summarize He is the perfect guy.It seems like Nicholas Sparks wants to handle every stereotype available out there He introduces the cruel, mean antagonist who finds pleasure in making life difficult for others, terrorizing them and treating women like shit Guess the purpose of this To make the perfect guy shine even brighter, of course Nobody is as perfect as Will Blakelee, but Sparks seems to want his reader to believe just that But allow me to question one thing If Will had had the same character, but another appearance, not the Liam Hemsworth kind, but a not so attractive guy would the movie have been that successful then I guess not.Don t get me wrong, I have nothing against romance novels I liked Ronnie, the female protagonist, and the story of her family, I adored her little brother Jonah, and the writing was not as bad as I initially feared But I do have something against novels defining love by how good looking people are

    I ve read a few Sparks books and for the most part, I ve really enjoyed them from beginning to end However, The Last Song took me quite a while to get into, and I was very close to throwing in the towel and giving up To be honest, I realized I went into reading it with a bad attitudeis ashamedI ll explain my resistance two words one person Miley Cyrus Not a huge fan of hers, so when I started this book, her image and voice resonated in my brain and it matched perfectly with Ro I ve read a few Sparks books and for the most part, I ve really enjoyed them from beginning to end However, The Last Song took me quite a while to get into, and I was very close to throwing in the towel and giving up To be honest, I realized I went into reading it with a bad attitudeis ashamedI ll explain my resistance two words one person Miley Cyrus Not a huge fan of hers, so when I started this book, her image and voice resonated in my brain and it matched perfectly with Ronnie s short for Veronica character Coupled with the fact that her attitude at the beginning of the novel was a huge turn off, I was close to calling it quits UNTIL something happened on page 127 Ronnie saved the sea turtles oh sweet nibblets, she had to go and save the sea turtles and my attitude soften and I plowed through the rest of the book in a few short hours.Seventeen year old Ronnie Miller s life was turned upside down when her parents divorced and her father moved away from New York to North Carolina After three years of anger and alienation from her father, she is forced to spend the summer in Wilmington with her dad, a former concert pianist and teacher During this summer of growth, revelation and maturity, Ronnie is faced with the possibility of mending her differences and coming to terms with her new reality.Overall, I feel this book isn t one of Sparks strongest examples of his writing abilities, but it s signature of his style to pull at your heart strings I think what won me over was the main character s demonstration of personal growth, maturity and compassion, but it took me a while to get there Good book with a slow start but strong ending I m glad I didn t give up because I ended up really liking it

    I have always enjoyed Sparks books but we all know that we can only read his books at certain times at least for me because we CRY I have heard about this one because I don t live too terribly far from where it is filmed my great pal Kathryn lives super close and it was taunting me at Target last week I bought it on Thursday, picked it up on Friday night to start reading it, went to bed reading it, picked it back up on Saturday and finished it This is probably my favorite out of all of I have always enjoyed Sparks books but we all know that we can only read his books at certain times at least for me because we CRY I have heard about this one because I don t live too terribly far from where it is filmed my great pal Kathryn lives super close and it was taunting me at Target last week I bought it on Thursday, picked it up on Friday night to start reading it, went to bed reading it, picked it back up on Saturday and finished it This is probably my favorite out of all of his books I have read almost all of them and so far, this one takes the cake Ronnie is such a relatable character to me on many levels and the whole first love coming of age story is something that we have all experienced I fell in love with the characters, cried when they cried of course , got mad when they did stupid things, and was rooting for Ronnie the entire time Throughout the novel, you see Ronnie s complete transformation and realization as to who she is as defined by herself and not by those she surrounds herself with So often we tend to adapt to those around us and do our best to fit it at any cost emotionally, physically, etc and for the past few years that is what Ronnie has done It is not until she is forced to come see her dad that she finds out who she is and what is truly important in life This is Sparks longest novel and he couldn t have done any better with it in my opinion I highly recommend it to teens and adults alike and will definitely be going to see the movie at the end of March
