The Best of Me - Nicholas Sparks

Somehow Nicholas Sparks has a way of making each of his books have an unpredictable and good ending. When reading the book I always believe I have the ending at the tip of my tongue: "who stays with who", "who dies", "who disappears", "who marries", "who is the good guy/bad guy" and yet once again in this book the author didn't fail to surprise me at the very last moment - and in my opinion that is what makes the book so good - the shock tactic.
Another thing is how the book flows so easily. It is not a hard read or something that you have to put all your focus or attention into. It is a book that is easy to read at a quick pace and that keeps me going; flipping one page after another and before I know it I have finished reading the book in only two days!
The story of this book starts actually quite simple. Two teenage lovers whom are prevented from continuing their love affair and move apart from one another. Many years later their mentor and mutual friend dies and they are brought back together and then the whole love and feelings rise up again...and well if you want to know the rest of the story then buy the book! heh :)

The Best of Me


“Everyone wanted to believe that endless love was possible. She’d believed in it once, too, back when she was eighteen.”
In the spring of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.
Now, twenty-five years later, Amanda and Dawson are summoned back to Oriental for the funeral of Tuck Hostetler, the mentor who once gave shelter to their high school romance. Neither has lived the life they imagined . . . and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever changed their lives. As Amanda and Dawson carry out the instructions Tuck left behind for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew—about Tuck, about themselves, and about the dreams they held dear—was not as it seemed. Forced to confront painful memories, the two former lovers will discover undeniable truths about the choices they have made. And in the course of a single, searing weekend, they will ask of the living, and the dead: Can love truly rewrite the past?
