Nicholas Sparks’, novel Dear John is a story about two people falling in love. The main characters , John Tyree and Savannah Lynn Curtis meet in Charleston North Carolina. He is from Wilmington and is a surfer, army boy, on leave for some time in the summer. She, from Lenoir, is a college student, in Charleston to do community service work. Throughout the beginning of the book, which along with the rest of it is in Johns point of view, we read the story of how they fall in love. In the beginning it is the fun things they do and how they spend their time together. When the middle of the book comes is when they face their struggles with John being in the army. He is stationed in Germany and had to go to Iraq. While he was there the story told us of some struggles he was facing, meanwhile, he and Savannah wrote letters to each other. In one letter, Savannah breaks up with John telling him she found someone else. Towards the end of the book they begin to re-connect. They both know that she is married and nothing can happen between them. John says his goodbyes to Savannah and lets her continue to live her life. An enjoyable part of this book was the overall story, and waiting to find out how it was going to end. One part that was frustrating was the end of the book. After seeing the movie and comparing it to the end of the book it was frusrating to see the difference. In the book John Tyree is the best character because it is in his point of view so there is a better understanding of him then anybody else. If someone saw the movie then they should definatly read this book. To rate this book out of five, it is a four.
