This was probably the most disappointing Nicholas Sparks book I have ever read The book s premise starts off promising enough high school sweethearts meet again at the funeral of a mutual friend some 25 years later and rekindle their romance a romance it turns out that had never really ebbed Dawson Cole, one of the main characters, comes from a family of violent lawbreakers and thugs, while Amanda Collier, the other main character, comes from a wealthy, upstanding family You get the picture star [...]

PLEASE DON T READ IF YOU DON T WANT THE STORY SPOILED I was sooo beyond disappointed with this book It had me all the way up to chapter 21, I kept thinking how is he going to get them together well he didn t That s how I got excited when it seemed that Amanda was going to meet him at the cemetery only for her to turn right and go home Which I guess was ok since she was almost home when she received word of the accident, but she stayed with Frank even after No no no I feel that Amanda was weak an [...]
After meeting the author Nicholas Sparks last October 28th here in Manila and get him to sign my book, i started reading his latest novel which is obviously entitled The Best Of Me I tried so hard to refrain myself in reading this though it was really hard for me because i m really curious about it So here it goes, the book is definitely good As the same as his other novels it is filled with flashbacks and old memories that in due time came back to the protagonists of the story It was one of the [...]
2.5 stars I always feel cheated when I get to the end of a Nicholas Sparks book I don t know why I keep reading them He has such a magical way with romance but then he rips the happily ever after away I love the descriptions and landscapes in this book Sparks creates the perfect backdrops for love and creates the perfect moments that most mere mortals can only dream about Then the characters and the reader have to pay the price for stealing such perfection by haveing it become nothing but a memo [...]
I gave you the best of me, and after you left, nothing was ever the same sobs This book isn t fair Right now my emotions are all over the place I don t even know if I could write a decent review.But heck, Nicholas Sparks did it again Everything in this book is remarkable Told in multiple POVs, I found this book totally engaging and emotionally driven I fell in love right from the beginning up to the end With Nicholas Sparks beautiful lines and plot, I could never stop admiring how great a storyt [...]
I used to love Nicholas Sparks Dear John is one of my favorite books because of how deeply it touched me and spoke about true love But it s the last book of his that I ve absolutely adored that way The Lucky One was a nice little story, and The Last Song touched me simply because, at the time, my father was dying of cancer Safe Haven reminded me too much of The Guardian, and this book, The Best of Mewhere do I start First of all, by the time I had gotten to page 90, I d already read several peop [...]
Cuando comenc a leer el libro me di cuenta c mo iba a desenvolverse la historia, era evidente lo que iba a pasar, pero no por eso no lo disfrut Saber que lo que pensaba se estaba cumpliendo me hizo tener una mezcla de sentimientos en todo el libro Me gust bastante, sufr , re , llor Me encant la relaci n tan nica y especial entre Dawson y Amanda a pesar de que ella se me hizo muy odiosa en varias oportunidades Esos 25 a os distancias no cambiaron ese v nculo de amistad y confianza que se ten an e [...]
Tear jerker Those are the only two words I can think to describe this book I really enjoy Sparks novels I always know I m in for a good cry
Let me begin by saying that I listened to this book driving HOME from Canada 12 hr drive people and it kept me awake so thank you to Nicholas, BUT I am pretty sick of Nicholas Sparks, his books are sooooo predictable but it was 10,000 times worse because of the man reading it UGH He could NOT do voices and I found myself rolling my eyes and laughing out loud because he was sooo bad Seriously, where do they find these readers I want that job.Dear Nicholas,I m sure you are a nice man and I ve alwa [...]
It took me a while to get into the book but enjoyed it It is different to the movie if you sae that first like myself I wish Dawson and Amanda ended up together
Opening Line For Dawson Cole, the hallucinations began after the explosion on the platform, on the day he should have died By now I ve read enough Nicholas Sparks to know going in that I m not always going to be guaranteed a HEA In fact half of the suspense for me in reading his stuff now is that I m not sure who he s going to kill off Sure it s also frustrating as hell, because I always forget and then just when I m all invested in the characters and wrapped up in their budding romance, blam Tr [...]
7 10 There are only three places in the world where you stand the risk of losing many of your favorite persons Real world, during natural calamities Fictional world, Game of Thrones Fictional world, Nicholas Sparks novels Throw in some romance, some supernatural conscience, some predictably melancholy farewell, there you go you call it a best seller Seven stars, because I stained the pages with tears But then I go and cry about everything at the slightest provocation Michelle Monaghan and James [...]
I am currently a Nicholas Sparks nut I love a good ooey gooey romance novel Shoot me I ve read a lot of his books and this is the only one that has made me bawl my eyes out for about half an hour after I had finished it It is heart wrenching and I was hooked the entire time I highly recommend this to someone who just is really in the mood to read a romance chick lit.
Nicholas Sparks, you never fail to deliver a great story In fact, your job is never done unless I ve been reduced to uncontrollable sobs, but I digress In The Best of Me, we meet Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole, high school sweethearts from different worlds who have a magical connection However, they go their separate ways when their families and other events tear them apart The death of their confidant, Tuck Hostetler, brings them back to their hometown 25 years later to confront their painful p [...]
I gave you the best of me, and after you left, nothing was ever the same Nicholas Sparks did it again I think he secretly not so secret any enjoys RIPPING our hearts out I cried Not ashamed It started off as the mother of all clich s not complaining , I still liked this a lot despite the very predictable, yet engaging plot but I admit that some parts SHOOK me not spoiling anything, you re gonna have to read this.I m glad I never gave up on Sparks and still am reading his beautiful novels I do ha [...]
I gave this book only 1 star because, although it was a typical Nicholas Sparks storyline, he clearly missed it in this one I am an avid fan and have read everything he s written and normally can t wait for his next novel to publish However, in this one, I didn t see the average warmth, caring and heart wrenching love that he s become famous for The love story wasn t even in good telling The ending sucked and really did make you feel that good guys finish last, no matter how good the heart is It [...]
Nicholas Sparks has done it again He has managed to write a book that has moved from page to page with such strong emotions it is as if he experienced every heartbreak, love, betrayal, loneliness and fright He was able to bring the characters to life The story is about the reunion of former lovers, Amanda and Dawson They come back to their home town after hearing about the terrible news of the death of who used to be a father figure to them, Tuck What unfolds after, is bigger than the both of th [...]
I m giving up on you Sparks.No .
SUCH an amazing plot, written by the only one who can I never could have foreseen the ending A truly genius ending to an epic tale Bring out the tissues Several people s stories in one novel, where all of them have a meaning to each other in the end I can only find this in a Nicholas Sparks novel This novel is not at all some sappy, clich love story You are on your toes through the entire book, and you will be left with a feeling of WOW, how is it possible to come up with a plot like this Again, [...]
Am recitit aceasta carte, cu aceeasi placere cu care am citit o Desi finalul este usor trist, pot sa inteleg totusi ca moartea unei persoane iubite a putut salva o alta persoana care se afla la inceput de drum O carte a emotiilor intense justreadingmybooks.wordpress.
OMG I just finished the Nicholas Sparks The Best of me and I want to cry so bad I believe everything in life happens for a reason and this book proves that As I read the series of events I knew exactly what had happened before the book told me and I wanted to scream No because true love overcomes everything In the end I think in the end knowing what happened not only saved two lives that night but it saved her in so many ways and I believe he would say it was all worth it I m still so sad though [...]
Just finished this masterpiece the ending took my breath away
Have to give this one 3 stars It started off quite well, actually I enjoyed reading about Amanda and Dawson, and their forbidden teenage romance I was interested to see what would happen when they met years later They are now in their 40 s when they are reunited to throw a ceremony for their old dead friend TuckHe has pined for her all these years, and she married, had children etc Of course her marriage is failing Once they do meet up, unfortunately, the books seems to drag and dragIt has an al [...]
Es el primer libro de Sparks con el que no conecto Todo lo veo demasiado dram tico, ya s que Sparks escribe as , pero aqu no me he cre do la historia.Normalmente en el final de un libro de Sparks estoy tirada por los suelos y llorando a mares Pues aqu estaba medio riendo.
Ne znam u biti sto reci Nije me vuklo na citanje, nije me dirnulo Njegova Biljeznica je bila super i treba ju procitati i pogledati film Za ovu knjigu to ne mogu reci, a za film cu ubrzo vidjeti.I btw, knjiga ima 311 stranica, a ne 236
1.5 disappointed stars There s a lot of magic between you too, ain t no denying that And magic makes forgettin hard This is my first Nicolas Sparks book ever and in the end, I learned that Mr Sparks is big on angst, epic frustrating romance at least in this book , never ending tragedies is his thing and wringing out every kind of emotions from each page is the very definition of a Nicholas Sparks Despite all this, I had every reason to expect an epic romance with side serving of second chance ro [...]
flashback realistic HEA Dawson Amanda The best of me All of me view spoiler hide spoiler
While I did enjoy this book for the most part, I definitely had huge problems with the ending I picked this up wanting and expecting a good heart wrencher but I was so flabbergasted by a certain turn of events that I was mostly left confused instead of in tears The characters were great, I thought they each brought something that made the story interesting in its own way I very much enjoyed how each of their stories was intertwined and seeing how they each dealt with difficult times I thought th [...]
3 5 I don t have much to say about this other than the fact that it was the end that made this book better Even though I wasn t particularly in love with this book, it still made my heart ache at the end whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
