Dear Nicholas Sparks....you suck *BEST OF ME Review and SPOILERS!!*

**CAUTION THERE ARE SPOILERS, SO IF YOU DON'T WANT TO CONTINUE READING STOP!!!!**

I wouldn't consider myself to be a glutton for punishment, but why oh why did I pick up Nicholas' Sparks latest "soon to become a movie" book.  Why oh Why!!!!?? *shakes head in hands*  I'll tell you why.  It was an evil trick and you suck Nicholas Sparks!!  Here's the trick people


The second trick is even worse!!!


Although, to be fair I hadn't seen Trick #2 when I went onto amazon and got the book.  So there I was, innocent and sweet, reading what looked to be like a romantic love story.  You know he lulled us into submission Safe Haven.  I loved the book and the movie.  It ended exactly how you wanted to end it; and it was almost as if a women had written it.  But I should have known better.  This is Nicholas Sparks we're talking about.  (and just for a fun fact - my 12 degrees of separation is that Nicholas Sparks went to high school with my mom's best friend - my non-biological aunt)  So I had faith; faith that the streak would continue and this would be a beautiful love story.  Oh man, love that spans time.....nothing can break it, even growing up and moving on.  But then......

**THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO STOP READING...BECAUSE I AM OUTING THE WHOLE THING MAN!!!**

So I started to read the book, and she was married.  Married!!  Freaking married! So anything she does with the love of her life is going to be an affair.  What?  Then, they try to make you hate her husband because he drinks; but there is so much more to the story than that.  Then, out of nowhere her son gets in a horrendous car accident, has to go to the hospital, starts to get better, and then his heart takes a turn for the worse.  And then it becomes like watching a horrible train wreck in slow motion.  You know the kind where you can't look away.  I knew exactly what was going to happen.  It all became clear, which either says a lot about me - that I am an amazing book reader and should be writing my own books - or it says that Mr. Sparks is running out of gusto.  You shouldn't be able to see the ending coming from a mile away, at least I don't think so.  Although I guess I should say you shouldn't be able to see a horrible ending coming from a mile away.  Seeing a happily ever coming from a mile away is somehow okay with me.

He dies, Dawson freaking dies because her son gets his heart.  Seriously??  I mean come on people?!!!  Oh, I was so mad!!!  And I'm still mad...seriously I will never fall for one of his evil tricks again!!!!  Fool me once, shame on me...fool me twice...shame on you!!

so, there you have it, A Walk To Remember was beautiful, despite the sadness.  I loved The Notebook.  You were lucky I found out about all the others before committing to reading them or going to see the movie.  Then Safe Haven totally lulled me into complacency.  Never again man!!!  You Suck!!!

  1. I wish I'd read this before I read the book. I take my characters to heart and now it's broken. I knew nothing good was coming when we found out she was married, but I really resent that his life sucked so bad and was only good for minutes.

  2. I wish someone had warned me. I really don't understand how he has succeed in life when his books are almost always like this. I'm especially irritated that the trailer is so misleading. And the whole married thing. boo on you NS! thanks for stopping and I'm glad to know I'm not alone

  3. It's surprising indeed that a lot of white folks haven't until now realized how much of a cliche their sense of lifestyle tends to get portrayed on the big screen.

  4. Tonight I watched the movie... Never read the book, didn't know there was one. I actually lunged for my phone to stop casting the movie right when he was rear ended by the truck. I know exactly what was going to happen and I knew his heart was going to her son... But I did NOT want to see it! But just in case I was wrong like I was SO hoping I was... I went onto this website to get the spoiler... Reading it would be less emotional than watching ;) In my head Amanda leaves her husband and he's happy about it, and her son gets a random transplant and Amanda, Dawson and her son live an incredibly happy life. Haha. I needed a romance movie tonight.. Not a freaking depressing end to a hopeful love story. Damn you Sparks. Damn you.

  6. I feel the exact same way about Nicholas Sparks movies. What I have done was to read spoilers like yours. If they are good... I get the movie. And I've been pretty lucky so far. Good NS movies are: Safe Haven, The Lucky One, The Longest Ride, and The Choice. Dear John has a happy ending although not as good. The Notebook was happy in that they were both old and died in each others arms. Other movies of his that I've either seen or own are Message in a bottle... awful... the hero dies. I won't purchase any of his other movies as I have read the spoilers. Bottom line: thanks for writing this one. I was almost convinced to get it. Thanks again.
