|Dear John Plot Summary|
So this is the original cover art as promised but the book I bought had the movie cover on it. I know I know I'm a traitor to my authors but I was in an airport and needed a book for a flight and that was all I could find. Plus the guy from the movie is super hot so it doubled as eye candy. I was able to finish it on a round trip flight to California and here is what I think. First, I will insert my bias here, my husband is in the military and has been for 6 years so I know what these people are going through kind of. While he was not stationed over seas I went a long period without seeing him (2 years) and all I have to say to this girl is if you really loved him suck it up pansy. Seriously I guess the title didn't give it away for me, knowing that a dear john letter is a break up letter should have tipped me off but I was optimistic. Bad choice quite possibly the worst book I have ever read which is why I refuse to watch the movie. I was depressed and angry by the end of he book so I can't imagine that the movie would be any better. I'm all for a tragedy every once in while but damn that kind of thing is so cliché it gives us other military girls a horrible name. This was supposed to be a story about how love is found and lost so "easily" The fact that the main characters fall in love over a two week span of awesome honeymoon period and loose it over 3-5 years of 50 weeks apart is just shocking right? Why were they surprised that their love faded out because they were apart and had to learn about each other over letters and phone calls.. Duh! ridiculous. I wouldn't suggest this book to any one. I assume the movie would be the same.
good for NO ONE
