Book's Epigram & My Critique :
It will not be exaggeration to say that Nicholas Spark is a master in love writing. The whole story is written so well that it carries you with the flow. The writer takes you with his visualization and you imagine the story as you move on with the reading. The way writer has described the vacation and other scenes makes you feel like you are present there.

The story starts with fighting between two neighbors and take dramatic turn when they finally fell in love. There are so many twist and turn in between that keeps you awake with curiosity that what will happen next. Especially the efforts made by the main character, Travis Parker, who made so many efforts to impress the lead female character Gabby. From inviting her to the vacation to helping her riding the motor cycle, all are weaved so well with the story. It's really good to read how Travis impressed the Gabby.

A new twist starts in the second part of the book when Gabby went in coma after an accident. The caring and love shown by Travis at that time is very appraising. The writer had shown a conflict of human mind on those emotional situations very well, where finally love wins.

Nicholas has proved again that he is a master of love genre. However a couple of things are bit odd, like Gabby's writing in advance and given to Travis that he can decide of letting her die if something gone wrong to her life. It looks like writer’s thinking is imposed on Gabby and she is aware that what is going to be next in her life, which is quite indigestive. If we ignore such incidents then overall the book if fine and binds you with its writing till the end.
