The Last Song

The Last Song - Nicholas Sparks I’ve been dying to read this book ever since I saw the movie trailer – and of course I had to read the book first.

It must be said I’ve never been much of a Sparks’ fan. His writing has never really been my style, his stories never held much appeal to me.

But this. Oh. My. God.

This was beautiful. I could not stop reading. The setting was incredible – I could just smell the ocean, hear the waves. I loved the father-daughter relationship that progressed and the dynamics of the household. The romance, the music, the webs of family issues and acceptance, the search for faith, for a more solid, palpable presence of God, the regrets and the sorrow and the ugly truth of endings. It was incredible.

Also, that cover rocks.
