Book Review- The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks
Book Review: Nicholas Sparks’ ‘The Best of Me’
I usually keep my distance from stories written for the masses, where the author seems more intent on reaching the number one spot in best-seller lists than providing readers with original material. This particular author fits the bill, having found a signature formula that not only gained him fame and fortune but has even been adapted multiple times for the big screen. The most famous adaptation of all his stories is undoubtedly The Notebook , that tear-jerking romance that saw Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams finding a sure footing in the film industry. When The Best of Me too was adapted for film, it got me curious enough to want to know more about it and I found myself, quite to my surprise, enjoying the read. This was most especially because Sparks is very good at providing a visual picture that is vivid and clear, much more so than quite a few of my favourite writers, actually. In fact, I could safely class Sparks as a master storyteller. Dawson Cole is part of a family that everyone is scared of, and unfortunately, even Dawson himself is!
In the non-fiction romance novel, The best of me, Nicholas Sparks introduces two main characters. He asks the readers if love is enough for Amanda and Dawson, regardless of their circumstances and pasts. Many obstacles are presented to them throughout the reading. The love between the two characters is something magical. The way the author describes their lives and their care for each other throughout the book really gives the reader a clear picture as to what he is describing. The book jumps from present to past to future.
The Feature Film
In the spring of , high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths. Now, twenty-five years later, Amanda and Dawson are summoned back to Oriental for the funeral of Tuck Hostetler, the mentor who once gave shelter to their high school romance. Neither has lived the life they imagined. As Amanda and Dawson carry out the instructions Tuck left behind for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew—about Tuck, about themselves, and about the dreams they held dear—was not as it seemed. Forced to confront painful memories, the two former lovers will discover undeniable truths about the choices they have made.
