The Best of Me-Nicholas Sparks
What can I say...Nicholas Sparks is very predictable. In a good way though. I would say The Best of Me is kind of like the notebook but a little more modern. I think a lot of people can relate to this book. You never forget your first love. Of course prepare for Nicholas Sparks to kill someone in his book, like he always does. When I read his book I like to play a game called "Guess which character he kills.". I sort of won. I won't give it away though. Lets just leave it as I kind of got it right, with a slight twist.
I would recommend this book if your in the mood for some suspense and some romance. Oh, and here is the
Trailer of The Best of Me. Yes, there is a movie coming out in the fall. I'm so excited!
In the spring of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.
Now, twenty-five years later, Amanda and Dawson are summoned back to Oriental for the funeral of Tuck Hostetler, the mentor who once gave shelter to their high school romance. Neither has lived the life they imagined . . . and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever changed their lives. As Amanda and Dawson carry out the instructions Tuck left behind for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew -- about Tuck, about themselves, and about the dreams they held dear -- was not as it seemed. Forced to confront painful memories, the two former lovers will discover undeniable truths about the choices they have made. And in the course of a single, searing weekend, they will ask of the living, and the dead: Can love truly rewrite the past?
