Forgettable -- I had heard of a couple of Nicholas Sparks's book titles as movies before I realized they were books first. I haven't seen the movies, but I was interested in the books since they were popular enough to be made into films. Sorry to say, when I saw "Dear John" at a used book sale, I didn't even remember that I had read it until I started reading it again.

To me, the writing was not very good or engrossing;
I just read it because it was something to do. The story contained a kind of unnecessary secrecy that perhaps is supposed to seem noble, but I didn't like or admire it.

Maybe part of the strain I felt in this story and in the writing could be related to the fact that one of Sparks's children has the same name, Savannah, as his main female character.

This book was better than a typical phony-sounding romance novel, but didn't do much for me.

I loved the book. Not only did it fill your heat with hope for Savannah and John, it renewed an empty part of their livs. Until fate intervened resulting in 'Dear John....' at a time when John desperately needed Savannah to understand and love him.
I feel that Savannah was someone that turned to be self-centered and only thought of herself.

I thought this book was very good and, maybe the best book I have ever read. It was a great and just really touching. In general I think it is a amazing book.
