I just finished another book. This time one by well-known author Nicholas Sparks. Most people know Sparks from his books that have been made into movies, such as The Notebook, Message in a Bottle, Nights in Rodanthe, and god help us, the Miley Cyrus movie The Last Song. I've read a fair amount of his books, and they are typically all the same - Flawed man meets flawed woman, they fall in love and then their relationship either works out despite the incredible odds or ends tragically. The latest book of his that I've read is called True Believer.
It's pretty much the same formula stated above, but this time WRITTEN HORRIBLY. It was awful. The plot revolves around a New Yorker trying to debunk a supernatural mystery in a small town, where he meets and falls in love with the librarian. This could have been ok if the characters were interesting or the writing wasn't so amateurish. Instead, I feel like I've wasted 3-4 days of valuable reading time.
Oh well. I'm on to bigger and better things.
I am about 60 pages into Sarah's Key and it is SO GOOD! I can already tell that I'm going to recommend this book to everyone, so start reading it now so I have someone to talk to about it!
