FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR An angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life--until he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah.

But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else.

Our customer reviews

Two young lovers have to part a few weeks after they've fallen in love and a very hard time for both of them begins. Most relationships don't last long after months of separation, but John and Savannah believe in their love and want to fight for what they have. The more the two young lovers turned away from each other, the more my interest aroused. I wanted to know how they achieve to stay close to each other's heart while there are a few thousand miles between them. The story of John and Savannah is told from John's point of view so that you get a very detailed insight into his feelings and thoughts and can even more identify with him than the female protagonist. Whereas John is an impulsive and sometimes imperfect person, trying to master daily life with his unusual shy father, Savannah appears like a saint and her life seems a bit kitschy sometimes. The character of John's father made a great impression on me. He wakes up in the morning, prepares breakfast, goes to work, comes back home in the evening and goes to bed at the same time each day. His only interest are his coins, for his son John he's got only a few words to share. When you first thought he is just uninterested or taciturn, you will find out something very interesting about his character. I really like love stories, but in my opinion Nicholas Sparks' writing stlye is a bit too descriptive. Still he knows how to write a story people would be sad about or touched by, especially romantics. THE VERDICT I give it 2,5 /5 stars. Serious issues mixed with the story of two young adults, experiencing their great first love together. Fans of big feelings, romance and strokes of fate will love Dear John as much as other novels by Nicholas more
