I read it because I’ve always wanted to read a Nicholas Sparks book because i probably watched all of his movies adaptations, but boy that was time wasted. the book was not big but at the same time was so slow to read and they fell in love too fast and jhon talks a lot and doesn’t necessarily say a lot, they and then nothing happens and there are a lot of miscommunication between john and savannah.
let’s not talk about the fact that the ending it’s not a “happy” ending and they don’t stay together.
I’m not wishing Tim’s death but I’m just saying that the fact that she choose  to marry a man that wasn’t john was not okay.
