“I finally understood what true love meant…love meant that you care for another person’s happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.”
So I am not a girl who enjoys romance as much as most but this book made me love the thought of being in love. When I say that I mean true love. This novel for me was about what real love is. John finding a woman who changed him who helped him become the man he was ment to be. He amazed me. They way he went from someone who was angry to someone filled with understanding. The way he let Savannah’s Love help him grow was beautiful. The best part of this story for me was the ending. This was a story og heart ache and unconditional love. I honestly found myself fighting the tears that stung my eyes constantly. I found myself falling in love with John and felt my heart-break when his broke. I was amazed at what he was willing to sacrifice for Savannah and her happiness. Then when he went and did the one thing I never thought anyone would do to the one person they loved more than life He let her go. That for me was beautiful and I don’t know how many more times I can say that this was a beautiful story. This was the first book by Nicholas Sparks that I have read well listened to since I did listen to it in audiobook format. This story had a great narrator, Holter Graham, made John sound exactly how I would picture a southern boy sounding. This book now holds a place in my heart. Nicholas Sparks is an amazing writer and makes it so you enjoy hearing about romantic things. This is a book for the romantics and non-romantics aka me. I hope that any who has yet to read this book reads it. I am now a fan of Nicholas Sparks. I am super excited to read The Best of Me by him next and review it.
