Nice and sappy. A good light read. Although I didn't care for the kidspeak (there's a nearly autistic kid character and Sparks writes what the kid says and then again HOW he says it... like in the kids' language... that was annoying).
This was a typical Nicholas Sparks novel. The author takes one ordinary guy and pairs him with an exceptionally beautiful woman. I thought the main characters were charming although they didn't always make the best decisions. The book, despite having a Sparks-typical plotline, became intriguing and finally caught my interest halfway through (I almost put the book down to read something fun). Don't be surprised if Sparks' story brings a tear to your eye.
