An angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life--until he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah. Their mutual attraction quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah waiting for John to finish his tour of duty, and John wanting to settle down with the woman who captured his heart. But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else. "Dear John," the letter read...and with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives were changed forever. Returning home, John must come to grips with the fact that Savannah, now married, is still his true love--and face the hardest decision of his life.

        Comments about Dear John:

        For the first time in my long reading history, the movie may have been better then the book! Sadly lacking in Nicholas Spark's usual feeling, I found this offering to be sedate and bland without his usual depth of emotion. The novel is worth reading, but the movie is worth watching more.

          What makes this book so good is the way in which Nicholas Sparks writes. He gives so much detail and emotion in his writing it is hard to not fall in love with his books.

          If you have seen the movie, you will take expectations with you as you read this novel.
          Keep an open mind, and fall into Spark's romance trap (again).
