Yes, finally a man !

What a wonderful story! Nicholas Sparks went far beyond the creation of just another "tear jerker", the book touches ones soul, as Sparks reflects of many of the questions that sooner or later we all ask us in our lives. What is the purpose of my life? What truly brings joy to me? What will it be that I will have in my head to take with me, when it is finally time to go? And so many more...

All this packaged in a gripping yet gently told love story that leads us on a emotional roller coaster (as life is), and it is hard to take a break before the story ends. Recommended by a man, especially to all other men out there.

It is sad that many women (especially in the U.S.) think, that men can not express their feelings or truly share their love and emotions, and even enclose their own husbands in that generalization.
They need to ask themselves why did they marry this "great", yet emotion-less man in the first place.
Our society certainly can improve to participate in the upbringing of more gentle, warm, caring, loving, and emotionally secure males, but many of them already exist, just open your eyes...

Need tissues for this one

I really enjoyed this book. It shows the strength of true love and how powerful it can be. I was hooked from the beginning, and had a hard time turning the player off when it was time to leave work. You will probably need a tissue!
