This book was sooo much like the movie! And I loved it. I didn't remember too much from the movie, but reading the book made me remember parts from it. But I can tell a lot of the stuff stayed true throughout the movie. One weird thing is how in the book she's a brunette, but I think that the actress, don't remember her name, plays the part really well with the way she acts and her general character. It def was very sad in the book and in the movie when John's dad was sick and then passed away. It's just so amazing how someone can write things down that you feel but not like specific things, just things that you go through and can't explain but somehow he does. And I really just like the story line of what happens and how it does. I think they should have kept the ending from the book where he donates the money from the coin collection and Tim is with Savannah still but at the end of the movie John like meets Savannah somewhere and they hug I think. Anyways, enough comparisons between book and movie. This book was super good. I just like the rawness and realness of it. The feelings and how it's laid out. I def got into the book. And I def should read more of his books!

Dear John by Nicholas Sparks
Back Cover: "Dear John", the letter read. And with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives changed forever. When Savannah Lynn Curtis comes into his life, John Tyree knows he is ready to turn over a new leaf. An angry rebel, he had enlisted in the army after high school, not knowing what else to do. Then, during a furlough, he meets Savannah, the girl if his dreams. The attraction is mutual and quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah vowing to wait for John while he finishes his tour of duty. But neither can foresee that 9/11 is about to change the world. Like so many proud men and women, John must choose between love and country. Now, when he finally returns to North Carolina, John will discover how love can transform us in ways we never could have imagined.
