By Nicholas Sparks
90 hours 20 minute listening time
A quick tip in audio books.....Make sure you turn the shuffle on your iPod off prior to listening to an audio book. I listened to the first like hour of this book and my iPod was on shuffle. I couldn't figure out why the hell I couldn't keep track of what was going on in the book. I restarted it and well, it all made sense when it wasn't on shuffle anymore. Go figure right?
If you have ever read a Nicholas Sparks book before, then you really already know what this book is about, forbidden love, pain, happiness, and of course, the occasional death. It was a very beautiful story, and made my cry like a little girl.
It starts with a man, John, and he meets a very intriguing woman, Savannah. They spend an incredible week together at the beach. John is in the army and has to go back to Germany, but they keep up correspondence via letters. If I say too much more, I think I might give away too much of what happens, and that is not my intent. However, it's a good quick read, and a nice little story to keep with you.
I will say though, I really need to pick a more uplifting book to read next. All this heart breaking love, and sadness is really bringing me down. Maybe I might take my dad's advice and read an Archie and Veronica comic book.......
