Good book

I have read many of Nicholas Sparks books. I have to say this was not my favorite. It seems the like the story line kind of dragged out. The ending was sad too.

    Not as good as his other books.

    I've read several books by Sparks and this was just kind of dull and under developed from a love story standpoint (in my humble opinion). It's more of a murder mystery than anything.

    Sooo disappointing

    I have read many of Nicholas Sparks's novels and I thought that they were great. This book was such a disappointment. It started out great, but I felt like the story became more of a detective novel rather than his stereotypical love stories. Also, the story became predictable as did the ending. Overall, not impressed.

    Completly Unrealistic!

    The plot twist in this story was very unbelievable. The driver of the car came from a very comfortable family. Their was no reason he would be working overtime doing back breaking work and then going out of his way to get food instead of going straight home and 'crashing'. And even more unconvincing is the husbands ability to let him go, as if just knowing who did it took away all the years of searching and pain. Also their is no way a school would allow his son to suffer academically as they did, he would have been referred to counceling where his lack of progress would have come to light. I understand fiction is to enjoy and loose yourself in for a few hours, but this was just a waste of my few hours!
