This book was not well written in my opinion. After reading this book and hearing from someone who has read another book by Nicholas Sparks, I’ve come to the conclusion that he is not a good writer for books, but is for films. Countless novels written by him have been adapted into genius movies, however his books seem to fall short. The story jumps between too many perspectives through the eyes of countless characters, making it easy to become lost. For the majority of the book I found that it moved much too slow, as I quickly lost interest in the story. I was unable to completely finish the book due to a lack of interest and the fact that the book was badly written.
