“The Best Of Me” by Nicholas Sparks is a love story between high school sweethearts Dawson Cole & Amanda Collier who get torn apart, only to get reunited 20 years later after death of Tuck Hostetler, causing the old feelings they had for one another all those year, to appear. Causing conflict, tension between the two couple.
I have been wanting read this book from the moment it came out and I finally got it for my birthday, back in November. Once again, Nicholas Sparks created another amazing story. It had conflict, suspense, action and crime added to it. I loved the fact that the novel wasn’t only about romance but also had danger added to it, like when his cousin tried to kill him, even after so many years had passed. Second, It always kept me wondering what’s going to happen next, especially after Dawson keep seeing that man after an explosion of the Oil Rig, he kept saving his life over again and I kept wanting to find out who it was. It was a shock to me once it was revealed that it was the doctor he accidently killed.
I love how in the last couple novels, Nicholas put dangerous twist in novels. I loved the part about Amanda’s son and it made me cry, made me feel scared, I could actually imagine what she was going through her mind. I like all those twists, it was because of twist and the attraction, relationship between Amanda & Dawson keeps my attention the entire time. This novel was hard for me to put down from moment I picked it up, the only reason I did was because I had study, otherwise I would spend hours reading it. The different point of views fit this novel very well. I could tell that Amanda & Dawson love each other even after so many years passed, I had a feeling that they always would. I would recommend this book to everyone who loves romance, action with some suspense added to it. I can’t wait to see what Nicholas Sparks will come up with next; I always look forward to his novels. In all the years I been reading his novels, there hasn’t been a single one I didn’t enjoy.
