I liked the book, Dear John, because I literally couldn't put it down. Nicholas Sparks does an amazing job of expressing feelings to the reader. I felt many emotions as I read the book and it had foreshadowing to help predict what would happen at the end. But as a reader you don't realize that until the end. I think others would like the book, Dear John. However, I think this book is something that would typically be read by a female since it is a love story. Others would enjoy this book if they like love stories that have unexpected turns that give you emotions you didn't think were possible to feel when reading.
