One element still eluded me — what was it specifically that draws the characters together? Situated on the southeastern coast of North Carolina, Wilmington is a charming port city near the Cape Fear Coast beach community. Rich in naval history, Wilmington is a modern city with so much to see and do; from a WWII battleship to a Hollywood movie production studio, cobblestone streets with horse-drawn carriages to music festivals, history museums to contemporary art galleries, elegant restaurants to welcoming nightspots, Wilmington has something for everyone.
Still, for the next three weeks, that one element eluded me. And whatever this element was, it had to a be at the coast of North Carolina, b be something that could happen to anyone, and c begin in June and end in August. I had no intentions of doing either both are unoriginal and hence, uninteresting.
What then could it be? And so it went, right down the line. Until, of course, I stumbled onto the idea of sea turtles. Or rather, a sea turtle nest.
Fortunately, they liked the idea, and I agreed to write the screenplay first, since they wanted to start filming in the summer of He tries to reconnect with her through the only thing they have in common—music—in a story of family, friendship, secrets and salvation, along with first loves and second chances.

I never thought I would love it the way I did, I mean, I knew I would like it, but not that I would be this crazy about it.
My problem with other Sparks novels: His beginnings are always very slow , so until now I never gave more than 4 stars to any of his books. But that was not the case at all with this one. I loved every page of it. I never was dissatisfied at all, actually I couldn't stop thinking about the book. If you liked A Walk to Remember and The Notebook, you will love this one because it has the same style, while most Sparks' other books are of a different sort.
The characters: Were should I start? Ronnie was a great character. To watch her grow through the whole book was great, I loved to see how she went from a confused and rebel teenager to a mature full-grown young woman. She managed to end up satisfied with her life and proud for what she accomplished.
Jonah, her younger brother, was the sweetest kid ever. I couldn't get enough of him. Every time he said 'awesooome' I just wanted to hug him forever,LOL.
And Will I completely adored him. Every time he appeared and said something I melted. My heart was lost from page one. And Steve, Oh, Steve. I completely adored him since page 1. I couldn't have asked for a better father figure for the kids.
He was so patient and everything Ronnie needed. I was so happy to see how he finally managed to get in good terms with his children again. But the best thing about this book was the process, to see how both of them started trusting and caring for their father once again. The book: I just loved how everything developed. Everything connected just right at the end.
And what an ending. I love books with a HEA. I'm not kidding with the tissues, you will really NEED them. This book was so heartbreaking at times that I felt my heart breaking into a million pieces. It touched me in ways I never thought a book could. I just loved this read and would strongly recommend it. View all 39 comments.

It is Sparks' fourteenth published novel, and was written specifically as the basis for the film adaptation by the same name. The story revolves around the summer of Ronnie Veronica Miller's seventeenth year, during which she is sent to stay with her estranged father.
Through their shared love of music, the duo reconnect. Her mother decides that it would be in everyone's best interest if Ronnie and her year-old brother, Jonah, spent the summer in Wrightsville Beach with Steve. Jonah is excited, while Ronnie can only wonder why her parents hate her so much as to send her there for the summer.

Ronnie was like a character that I can personally relate to and the dialogues are just humorous. It's kinda like predictable but all in all it's really meaningful and highly recommended to all Sparks fans. View all 17 comments. When you look at modern Women's Fiction or Chick Lit, as it is called for whatever reason , Nicholas Sparks is one of the few names you cannot turn away from that easily.
He has written more novels than many other authors, most of them have become quite popular, and if you take a look at his Goodreads page, you might realize that thirteen of his novels have more than , ratings.
There was only one author who I discovered to have more novels than Sparks with such an achievement on Goodreads When you look at modern Women's Fiction or Chick Lit, as it is called for whatever reason , Nicholas Sparks is one of the few names you cannot turn away from that easily.
There was only one author who I discovered to have more novels than Sparks with such an achievement on Goodreads. It's easy to figure out why people like this novel, and I understand and value all of the raving opinions.
The concept is pretty interesting, too. A teenage-girl one step before entering adulthood trying to deal with life and the obstacles thrown at her, her dysfunctional family trying to hold together what hasn't already been shattered, and this gorgeous boy from neighborhood who is so sweet and courteous and attentive that it seems like Nicholas Sparks wants you as a reader to fall in love with him as well.
And that's already the problem: I just don't buy it. People can be as beautiful as possible, but it's impossible to judge whether the soul behind that beauty is just as beautiful However, Sparks defined Will, the protagonist's love-interest, as sweet and beautiful and successful and Throw in the facts that Will rescues endangered animal species, has a lot of friends and experience and is one of the best atheletes in his town.
Let's summarize: He is the perfect guy. It seems like Nicholas Sparks wants to handle every stereotype available out there. He introduces the cruel, mean antagonist who finds pleasure in making life difficult for others, terrorizing them and treating women like shit.
Guess the purpose of this? To make the perfect guy shine even brighter, of course. Nobody is as perfect as Will Blakelee, but Sparks seems to want his reader to believe just that. But allow me to question one thing: If Will had had the same character, but another appearance, not the Liam Hemsworth kind, but a not-so-attractive guy I guess not.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against romance novels. I liked Ronnie, the female protagonist, and the story of her family, I adored her little brother Jonah, and the writing was not as bad as I initially feared. But I do have something against novels defining love by how good-looking people are. View all 35 comments.

I thought I should give this novel a chance, thus I read this again to see if I will like this more on the second time. I didn't like it, but rather I love it! I could see myself on Ronnie's shoes at family matters only. And how I wish that I have someone like Will in my life too just like Ronnie. View 2 comments. Jun 10, Anysatiarasita rated it it was amazing. The story in this novel is really fascinating.
This novel was written by Nicholas Sparks. It is about family and love, primarily first love. It began when Veronica Miller Ronnie , a year-old talented teenage girl who was disappointed with her father for having left her family without a cause after divorce with her mother.
That made Ronnie very angry and decided to stop to play piano even she has refused a scholarship from Julliard and never spoke with her father for a long time. His father, Steve Miller was a musician and also music teacher. He always spent his days composing songs with his piano. Ronnie was very angry and unhappy. When she got there, Ronnie did not want to greet his father and she decided to walk to the beach. At the beach, Ronnie met her new friend Blaze who had the same problems with parents just like Ronnie.
What makes me interested in this novel is that it tells a love of the family and the struggle of a father while trying to make his daughter feel happy.
Steve wrote a song for his daughter in order to make her happy and forgive him. However, Ronnie never noticed him and she preferred to play with her friend on the beach. Besides telling the love of the family, Nicholas Sparks also tells the reader about first love story in this novel. At that time, Ronnie had found a turtle egg which was attacked by raccoons. Until she met Will Blakelee , her first love. However, not long after, a misunderstanding ensued. This made Ronnie talk to his father after all this time.
Ronnie told her father about her first love with Will. His father was very happy Ronnie would talk to him even hugging him.
After the writer tells the happiness in this story, he brings the reader to feel the sadness in this story. Jonah was asked by his mother to go back to his house even though he did not want to, while Ronnie wanted to stay with his father. The theme that the writer used in this story is affection. Affection is very important thing to prove the existence of love. Sacrifice, speech, and action are ways to express the meaning of affection.
We have to be able to give happiness to people that we love. Until his hands could no longer play the piano. Ronnie replaced her father to finish the song and she finally returned to play the piano after all this time.
His father felt proud and happy for her until he closed his eyes for the last time. That was the last song that Ronnie and his father made. She was sure, when the church window shined, the light was his father. I am always bewitched and cry after reading this novel. The atmosphere created by Nicholas Sparks is felt by the readers.
No wonder this novel is very popular and loved by the readers. Read it and watch it. View all 44 comments. Sep 21, Jennifer Wardrip rated it it was amazing Shelves: trt-posted-reviews , trt-gold-star-award-winner , jens-personal-read.

Ronnie is rebellious and having been arrested for shoplifting back home, a quiet summer in North Carolina might be the Reviewed by Jaglvr for TeensReadToo. Ronnie is rebellious and having been arrested for shoplifting back home, a quiet summer in North Carolina might be the best thing for her.
At least that's what her mother thinks. Ronnie arrives with the intention of ignoring her dad. On her first night there she wanders the beach and meets a girl, Blaze, who seems okay. But Blaze is addicted to Marcus, and Marcus is bad news. And Marcus is interested in Ronnie. Ronnie can tell Marcus is trouble and tries to avoid him.
But the triangle will ultimately create problems. On a brighter note, Jonah is totally content in North Carolina and with spending time with his father. He has no desire to return to New York City. Jonah has joined his father in creating a replacement stained glass window for a church that burned in town. As the summer unfolds, Ronnie falls in love with a local boy, Will. She discovers the wonders of Loggerhead turtles. And she learns to trust her father all over again. As the summer comes to a close, more than one tragedy occurs, and Ronnie must face some hard truths in her life.
I have to admit that it's been a while since I truly loved one of Mr. Sparks' novels. Don't get me wrong, I do adore his work. But it's been ages since I sat down with one of his books and found myself with tears in my eyes.
This was one of those rare stories. With about forty pages to go in the novel, I found myself with wet eyes and the sniffles. As with all of Mr. Sparks' books, expect tears, joy, love, and ultimately redemption and forgiveness for many of the characters. View all 5 comments. Dec 05, Arlene rated it liked it Shelves: ya-contemporary , read , young-adult. However, The Last Song took me quite a while to get into, and I was very close to throwing in the towel and giving up. To be honest, I realized I went into reading it with a bad attitude.
Miley Cyrus. Not a huge fan of hers, so when I started this book, her image and voice resonated in my brain and it matched perfectly with Ronnie's short for Veronica character. Coupled with the fact that her attitude at the beginning of the novel was a huge turn-off, I was close to calling it quits UNTIL something happened on page … Ronnie saved the sea turtles… oh sweet nibblets, she had to go and save the sea turtles and my attitude soften and I plowed through the rest of the book in a few short hours.
After three years of anger and alienation from her father, she is forced to spend the summer in Wilmington with her dad, a former concert pianist and teacher.
During this summer of growth, revelation and maturity, Ronnie is faced with the possibility of mending her differences and coming to terms with her new reality. Good book with a slow start but strong ending. View all 28 comments. I bought it on Thursday, picked it up on Friday night to start reading it, went to bed reading it, picked it back up on Saturday and finished it!
This is probably my favorite out of all of his books. I have read almost all of them and so far, this one takes the cake. I fell in love with the characters, cried when they cried of course , got mad when they did stupid things, and was rooting for Ronnie the entire time. So often we tend to adapt to those around us and do our best to fit it at any cost emotionally, physically, etc.
It is not until she is forced to come see her dad that she finds out who she is and what is truly important in life. I highly recommend it to teens and adults alike and will definitely be going to see the movie at the end of March. Loved this book. It was different to the movie and went into more detail. I loved the ending better than the movie, after such a sad thing that happened I was glad Ronnie and Will get back together.
Shelves: tear-jerkers , young-adult , contemporary , romance. Sometimes you love them more. It's my first Nicholas Sparks novel and I don't intend it to be my last after reading this. I like the way he writes and the way he depicts life in the most real way possible. This book had something true to it, well, it must have been the characters who had a vibe of realness in them that most books lack sometimes.
Ronnie is a seventeen-year-old girl who's definitely have some issues with her parents. It all began three years ago when her parents got divorced and she never talked to her father ever again. This summer though she and her little brother have to spend her summer with their father in the little town where he lives. Ronnie starts mending her relationship with her father slowly and steadily while in the meantime she makes enemies and friends and most importantly falls in love with one of those guys she never liked or felt attracted to, but Will is the exception.
Will is the only person in the world that can actually put up with Ronnie and her peculiar self she is most widely know for. He chases her and not for one minute does he give up on her until she's his.
And they fall in love, they spend their summer together, always together, doing things together like watching over the turtle nest outside Ronnie's house because a raccoon has been seen lurking around. They kiss and they talk and they learn about each other. It's so beautiful. And so real. Which is why I loved it so much.
I've certainly watched my share of romantic movies based on Mr. Spark's novels but I've never quite liked them that much that I would grab the book and read it but maybe it's just that the movies lack what his books have, that magic and realness because the movies seem somehow shallow..
Well, okay, read this because it's heartbreaking and heartmending and it explores lots of things about the parent-kid relationship. That's about it.
Thanks for reading! After her parents divorced, seventeen year old Veronica "Ronnie" Miller felt as if her world was crumbling around her, especially when her father decides to move from New York City to Wilmington, North Carolina.
