I was intrigued that he regularly quoted Bible verses, even when he was in the wrong — it showed a very confused man. However, this does not excuse his actions.

I did like that both sides of the story were told, it added depth and meaning to the story. I liked the characters, especially Katie and Alex. I loved how delicate they were at the beginning, Katie because of her husband and Alex because of the death of his wife. I was impressed that even though Katie had left Kevin she refused to sleep with Alex because she was still married.

Which is a roller coaster. First hundred pages: Typical Sparks. Reading him is like eating at McDonalds. You know the taste. No surprises.

If you want quick fix to your hunger, you pass by an outlet. Quality food at reasonable price.

What I am saying is that there is nothing wrong with Nicholas Sparks' novels. You want romance, you get romance. You just read to be entertained, you get entertained. You don't want mind-boggling read, you just read and no need to think. You get what you expect.
