Dear John By Nicholas Sparks

Mamarazzi finished this book within 24 hours. Is it good? It depends on individual taste la.

After reading the story, Mamarazzi kept harping what a stupid John. Haiizz..

At the beginning it was like love at first sight. Undying love. The heroine, Savannah seems to be the perfect girl. Caring, lovable and saint like.

Savannah have been very patient waiting for John when he was in the Army. She had every right to resent it when he went and re-enlisted for another tour. There was this part where she felt so lost when he left for the Army. How she could barely function in life.

As expected she dumped him in the end and married her next door neighbour who hold a torch for her since donkey years. The perfect guy, Tim. if a dose of heart break is not enough. He went back for more. After his dad death he was somehow loss and thought wanna see Savannah again.

They met at her ranch. There he discovered her husband is hospitalised and is dying. She told him she love her husband. It was like a spear piercing his heart.

One night they were having dinner and spilled wine on their clothes. Savannah went to chance. John went to the bathroom to clean up and inadvertently saw her partly naked. She noticed him and she slowly turned around to show him what she got.

It was touch and go but the moment was interrupted by her husband's brother, Alan, who is Autistic. She went and comfort the brother-in-law. She told Alan, that she love Tim as much as he does. *Pengsan* just a moment before she was prepared to got to bed with John, and now she said she loves Tim.

Then this John got all soapy. Went and sell of his father's collection of coins and donated the money anonymously to Savannah for Tim medical expenses.

Some will definitely curse Mamarazzi for being so heartless as this book is supposed to about true love and self sacrifice ...but to Mamarazzi, Savannah seems to be a selfish lady. Waiting to have her cake in both hands and eat it.

A bad book? Nope..It's a good book. Coz the author managed to draw out Mamarazzi's anger. Maybe that was not his attention, but that was what he managed to do la..isk isk isk this Savannah.
