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. Their mutual attraction quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah waiting for John to finish his tour of duty, and John wanting to settle down with the woman who captured his heart. 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. "Dear John," the letter read...and with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives were changed forever. Returning home, John must come to grips with the fact that Savannah, now married, is still his true love--and face the hardest decision of his life.

    This books is one of the best of Nicolas S. The part of him reading the letter with his dad in the hospital and when he was all alone in the funeral broke me, and never cry! I don't get why the movie was soo different and it didn't have the feeling of the book! What a waste of good book! Read it is 100 times better than the movie!

    The novels by Nicholas Sparks are by far some of my most favorite books. In Dear John I was always being grabbed in and was always wondering what would happen next. I loved the story line of it as well. Different than most romantic novels. Great book!

    I started off reading this book because of a book report had to so and with no interest in romance stories. As I read from page to page I was instantly hooked into this book. I couldn't get out of it I finished the whole book in one day. I even cried, it teaches you love can be truly that real. I have to say, this is the best book I have ever read. Do yourself a favor and read this book.
