''The Last Song''- Book review

Author: Nicholas Sparks
Published: 2009

Genres: Novel, Romance

Rating: 4 out of 5


The prologue of The Last Song builds up curiosity and suspense. I became so curious to know what happens, what incidences the characters come across, just while reading the prologue. The Last Song is such an amazing, well-written and touching book!

Ronnie and Jonah are sent to live with their father for the summer. Ronnie is furious at her father because he had left them. She hasn't talk to her father for the last three years. And she hates having to spend the whole summer with her dad. She does her best to ignore him. 

Ronnie comes across Will, a handsome young man. They fall in love and spend much time together. But however, the summer will soon come to an end, and they will be separated. But they know that their love is deep and strong, and their love will always remain strong, despite their distance.

Meanwhile, Ronnie comes to forgive her father and becomes close to her father again. She even starts regretting because of her previous behavior with him. Everything seems perfect.

But fate has planned something else for them. First of all, there is a terrible secret that her father is hiding. Secondly, there is the shadow of a crime apparently committed by Will's friend, Scott. A crime which Will has been covering up.

The novel is told from the perspective of four people: Ronnie, Will, Steve (Ronnie's father) and the novel's antagonist, Marcus.

I found it a really wonderful and touching read. Nicholas Sparks is really wonderful. The romance between Ronnie and Will, and also the relation between Ronnie and her father- both are beautiful. But I have to say that the prologue made me expect something much more, but in the end, it didn't completely meet my expectations. Despite that, it was a beautiful read. Touching, sweet, and heartbreaking, The Last Song is amazing!
