"The Last Song" reaches further. Comprising love of life, of music, of nature - and most of all, love within a family, between parents and children in particular, in all its beauty and complexity.
The book starts with a rather long introduction into the main characters' personalities and lives. For a long time it all seems to stand a bit still. But fear not. This is a necessary part of the rich and touching story which is soon to unfold.
17 year old Ronnie and her 10 year old brother Jonah are to spend the summer with their father in North Carolina. Their parents are divorced and children have not seen their pianist/composer father for three years. Jonah is looking forward to seeing his dad as only a 10 year old boy who loves his father deeply can. Ronnie hates her father for having left the family, and wants to stay with her mother in New York. Something she makes no secret of when she arrives at her father's small beach house.
And so the scene is set for a summer nobody will forget. A summer which will affect Ronnie and Jonah, their parents Kim and Steve - plus friends to be made during the summer - forever.
We have all loved and lost. We have all experienced joy and sorrow. Points in our lives which have forced us to stop and where the road further on has changed direction. Not without pain, but the pain is the necessary seed for the growth of future happiness. For further blooms to grow along our path in life.
The sweetness and innocence of childhood, teenage rebellion, the struggle to keep a marriage alive. There are a myriad of feelings in Spark's perhaps most realistic and important work ever. And impossible to remain unaffected.
Buy it and enjoy!
The father and daughter relationship is beautiful, the character Steve, played out so lovingly, waiting for the right moment to engage with his daughter....giving her time and space to work things out with herself first.
This book made me laugh out loud and cry too, I will read it again and again.
I have seen many film versions of Sparks' books, for example, 'Nights in Rodanthe' and 'A Walk to Remember'. I have to admit that everthing I have watched I have sobbed my heart out at each one.
In Late December I went to see Miley Cyrus in concert. She showed a clip of her new movie which is out in April called 'The Last Song'. At the end of the clip it said from the authour of 'the Notebook'. I knew straight away I had to order the book and read it before I went to watch the film. So eventually when it came I began reading it straight away. In total it took me about two days to read it! I couldn't sleep, I had to finish it and find out what was going to happen. I had goose bumps throughout the whole book, and it is just incredible. Everyone in my family now wants to read it!
A truly amazing story that everyone should read before they die. And if they don't its there loss. I'll be the first person buying a ticket for when the movie comes out. Breath taking!!
the story starts off slow but it soon pulls you into the world of Ronnie and you almost feel like you are walking along the beach and can see the little house with the porch where she slept to make sure the turtles were safe. a picture perfect ending to a rollercoaster story, i really would reccommend this book to anybody, and i have ordered a few more of Nicholas sparks books too!
