Dear John by Nicholas Sparks - Review & Giveaway

Dear JohnDear John

Synopsis - An angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life--until he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah. Their mutual attraction quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah waiting for John to finish his tour of duty, and John wanting to settle down with the woman who captured his heart. But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else.

Nicholas Sparks sure knows how to tug the heartstrings in yet another moving & romantic story of star-crossed lovers. I had the pleasure of listening to the audiobook edition which is read flawlessly by actor and voiceover artist Holter Graham. His voice is soothing and hypnotizing as he narrates the conflicts and the love and the bittersweet aspect of it all. And with subtle changes of tone and pitch, Graham is able to distinguish the various characters with aplomb.

You can listen to an excerpt here. And even watch the movie trailer there.
