review · eBook or Kindle ePUB Ô Nicholas SparksI didn t fall for this kind of formulaic writing It s needed Sometimes you just need predictable romantic cheese Obviously or Nick Sparks wouldn t be a gazillion jazillion aire or whatever "I won t pretend to be a iterary snob who ooks down on this genre of "won t pretend to be a Beautiful Ghosts literary snob whoooks down on this genre of I have guilty pleasures and I indulge You all know you do tooHOWEVER This book is UNNECESSARY And EVIL PURE EVILAnd here s the part where I also won t pretend to be a rational human being when it comes to animals or specifically animals of the canine variety My husband and I have no children Instead we have three dogs All rescues I am one of Those Crazy Dog People So I Will Forewarn You And Fully I will forewarn you and fully that my Absolute Hate of this book is fueled by my completely irrational and 5 year old belief that Dogs Do Not Die EVER AT ALL Even happily from old age MARLEY I AM LOOKING AT YOUI mean at 5 years old I bawled and my mom had to remove me from the movie theater during The Fox and the Hound because We Alexandra, Gone ll always be friends FOREVER Except when I get older and have to hunt you down and kill you LIES ALL LIES And no animals dog or fox were even killed in that movieSo I m assuming if you ve read this book you get from myooooong disclaimer why I hurled it across the room when Nicholas Sparks went and MURDERED THE DOG It s not enough to POISON him No to just make this book even that much DRAMATIC A Year in 120 Recipes let s SHOOT HIM TOO But itl be okay because he died protecting his humans from a crazy stalker and his humans get to F. Scott Fitzgerald live Happily Ever After because of how brave the dog was And that just makes it all better doesn t itUm no Is it wrong that I ve rewritten the ending in my head where all the humans It s been soong since I ve read this I ve forgotten names Main Character Love Interest Crazy Stalker all end up dead because they are humans and adults and they all should know better than to allow THEMSELVES The Devil Hath Been Raised: A Documentary History of the Salem Village Witchcraft Outbreak of March 1692; Together With a Collection of Newly Located and Gathered Witchcraft Documents let alone an innocent dog to get mixed up in all this stupid drama And the dog MIRACULOUSLYives and gets HIS Happily Ever After with a nice stable family who are smart enough not to get mixed up with Crazy Stalkers and who have two children for him to play with and a big fenced in backyardThat might be wrong of me but I ve already admitted my irrational ove of dogs so my alternate ending shouldn t have been a surpriseI apologize because I can t really offer any rational critiue of this book That all went out the window the moment he MURDERED THE DOG I am way too blinded by my hate of this to offer anything else even remotely constructive or informative I haven t read another Nick Sparks book since The Guardian And that was about seven or eight years ago Have I mentioned I also hold irrational grudges against authors who murder dogs This Grudge is so strong I don t care what kind of "Cheesy Bait He Dangles I Will Never Bite Again Completely "bait he dangles I will never bite again Completely I know But I ike iving in Irrational City Dogs don t die there Wasn t a huge fan of this one but I am ooking forward to Sparks next novel Sometimes belonging to a book club or two or in my case three means that you are introduced to something that you would have never read on your own that turns out to stretch your mind and ead to interesting discoveriesand other times you are so aghast by someone s fav.
