In Message in a Bottle Nicholas Sparks has found a way to grasp your heart in this tragic, yet happy love story. If The Notebook was a sad story then this one will leave you crying for hours. With the love between Theresa and Garrett, the ending of the book seems to take a dramatic twist that you would have never seen coming from the first time that Theresa met Garrett. This was a book that I enjoyed to read and found out that once I picked up the book I couldn't put it down. The ending might have been tragic but the overall theme seems to remain clear. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has lost a love before, or even fallen in love. Sparks always finds that way to leaving you weeping at the end. This was once again, another wonderful book by Sparks. I love the tear-jerkers.

Good Book!

I really enjoyed reading this book right up until the end! I wanted a happy ending....why do all Nicholas Sparks books have to end sadly? I really enjoy his books, but sometimes I think the endings are a little much! It's ok to have a happy ending every now and then!...

    This was a very great book. I just loved how Sparks put so much

    This was a very great book. I just loved how Sparks put so much detail into the ocean views, and he is just very good with detail. The plot of this book was simply love-filled but at the same time, sorrowful. I am absolutely addicted to Nicholas Sparks' novels and the movies that they make out of it. I couldn't put this book down! I was going for a happy ending...but I didn't get one. I love reading these types of books...romance....its nice to read about extraordinary love, that isn't very easy to find.

    I Also Recommend:

    I am a huge fan of Nicholas Spark's books, but this was not one

    I am a huge fan of Nicholas Spark's books, but this was not one of my favorites. Some of the chapters were very long, and the ending did nothing for me (I would have LOVED to see a happy ending). But, this was a pretty good book otherwise. The characters are lovable, readers will find themselves wishing for the best and feeling very hopeful, and the love was pure and radiating out of the book. Fans of the genre should pick this one up. But, I do recommend some of his later novels to this one. For example, "The Lucky One", "and Safe Haven".

    Another Sparks Tearjerker

    Another great read by Sparks. Although through no fault of the author, i wish Barnes and Noble would not publish spoilers.
