My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I had never read Nicholas Sparks before and had picked up the book just to while away my time. As i flowed from page to page i was captured by the depth it was narrated. simple phrases were used to describe the most beautiful expressions and i was left wondering in awe, how simple and ordinary life of an 80-something man may hold a depth of a heart moving tragic love story.
The story has a smooth start and smooth finish with elements of excitement, grief, romance ingrained in between.
I didn't notice the time passing by as i read the book and grew engrossed in it and when i finished it, i thought that it has ended too quickly. At the end of the book i wished there was more of it.
