Dear John

When I saw the first trailer for the movie, you can imagine it struck a few strings with my heart. I cried during the preview and I have cried during every preview that I have seen since then. I am very excited it finally comes out next week because the anticipation is killing me! So I decided I wanted to read the book before I saw the movie and that's what I spent this afternoon doing. I read the whole book cover to cover in about 6 hours with a few breaks here and there. Now I don't want to be the one to tell you what happens so I'm going to very briefly talk about it, I wont give any details other than this blog so don't ask what happens!! To me it hit very close to home because Eric is in the Army and gone as we speak. I loved the book over all but I cant decide how I feel about the ending! After you all see the movie or read the book we can talk! But I should have you know I cried a few times while reading it and I'm not afraid to admit that. Needless to say, I am even more ready to see the movie! That's all I'm going to say :)


About the girl: said...

I, too, cried during just the preview of the movie. I can't wait to see it. If it's anything like "The Notebook" by the same author, I'll need to bring a box of tissues with me to the theater. You make me want to read the book, now. Perhaps I will. Thanks for the inspiration! :)
