If you're a fan of Nicholas Sparks (I, generally, am not), this is the perfect book for you! It's the beautiful story that proves true love can conquer and overcome all obstacles. Some people enjoy that plot, but as I get older and continue to get to know myself better, I'm realizing that I like the conflict and growth of characters more than I like the happy ending. Yes, I want to believe in the fairy tale and the happy ending. But I hardly ever find them to be that realistic. I thought the characters and their interrelationships were flat and didn’t have any redemptive qualities. Overall, the story was just too simplistic and predictable for me to really love it.

How about you? Do you want books to wrap up perfectly by the end, or are you ok with messy and difficult endings?
