comI wanted to read this book as soon as I saw the trailer for the movie But I had to ask a friend if it had a happy ending or a sad one, cause I wanted to be prepared going into it I usually don t do that but with this author, you just never know I loved Travis as a character He seemed genuinely nice and care free I felt that he was a guy enjoyed the pleasures of the world especially when it came to women He wants to one day settle down but hadn t found a woman that really made him feel different when it came to love Gabby was okay I had a hard time liking her I felt like she was a bit whiney I think I understand what the author was trying to convey with this character but she bothered me I found myself rolling my eyes a lot When I finally saw the movie I liked movie Gabby better than book Gabby.
The romance kinda bothered me Especially in how Gabby and Travis got together I felt like it almost glorified cheating Let me explain Gabby has a boyfriend A boyfriend she is waiting and hoping will propose But the author does a great just job of showing that actions are taken with first the thought What I mean by that is, every step Gabby took towards Travis was a very conscious decision He had a very romantic weekend with Travis and all of a sudden Gabby and Travis know they are meant to be together Now I understand that as soon as Gabby chose Travis she quickly ended it with her boyfriend but it still doesn t excuse in my mind that she cheatedbig time I loved the turn of events and The Choices that had to be made throughout the whole book, before the ultimate relationship between Gabby and Travis and afterwards It was really sweet the afterwards Overall I really enjoyed this story Despite my mixed feelings about Gabby being in a relationship when she got together with Travis It was interesting to see how Sparks decided to build the story to ultimately reach its climatic turn of events Sexual Content moderateLanguage mildViolence mild noneDrugs Alcohol mild Loved this book, and as all of his books this is unpredictable with a really happy ending I loved this book and again provided me with lots of warm fuzzy, even the odd tear was shed moments It sweeps you up into fantasy situation where you can easily loose touch with reality A great escape from life s mundane events.
Mr Sparks, All my life I believed in order for a wonderful marriage all you needed was true love And now, knowing that for a relationship to work it needs much then love, reading your books is honestly quite pathetic and sad All your books are the same, have you ever thought about writing a book that doesn t involve two people falling in love over the course of twenty four hours This isn t going to be a long review, but it will be a ranting one Just going to jump right in The characters in this book are ridiculous First Gabby One word Annoying She got on my last nerve This is going to sound insane, but she thought way to much The first half of this book is her just thinking but it s about nothing at all She just goes on and on and on about any and everything Then on top of her babbling she was obsessed with making it crystal clear that she had a boyfriend Hey having a party at my house would you like to come I have a boyfriend Hi how are you I have a boyfriend What time is it I have a boyfriend What color is the sky I have a boyfriend.
WE GET IT YOU HAVE A BOYFRIEND WE GET IT, TRAVIS GETS IT, HIS FRIENDS GET IT, PEOPLE WHO HAVEN T EVEN HEARD OF THIS BOOK GET IT Shut the F up about how you have a boyfriend NO ONE ASKED She s also absent minded, jumps to assumptions, and takes her anger out on everyone Oh wait there s she s needy, whiny, and way too attached to the male characters in this book Everything she did uggggggggggh drove me insane Then we have Travis Travis is perfect And yeah this is a problem He is able to do everything, and I m just not ok with this Cook, clean, entertain children, ride motorcycles, you name it he does it I like my characters with flaws and he legit has none Oh and boy does he ooze of charm That s another thing HE IS TOO CHARMING Yeah, I ll give it to him, he has a few very silly cute moments However all his perfections overshadowed all I did prefer Travis to Gabby, but I don t really know what that says.
The relationship between the two is soooooooooo unrealistic Mr Sparks you have your two main characters fall in love in one weekend ONE weekend I m not saying that this would be impossible for an author to do what I m saying is that you are going to have to do it up You are going to have to pull out all the stops stops that aren t even invented yet Good sir, when you make a book 250 pages it s a sprint not a marathon I m talking that can t eat can t sleep reach for the stars over the fence world series kind of magic We don t have time for you to waste on all this pointless backstory BS Having these characters falling in love over a weekend would mean you would have to have us fall in love with them being in love in a matter of pages Newsflash you didn t I DID NOT FOR ONE SINGLE SECOND BELIEVE THESE TWO COULD DID FALL IN LOVE I gave no Fs about these two being together Which leads me to the plot.
WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD There really isn t much plot to talk about because nothing happens 85% of this book NOTHING happens This book puts all its eggs in the basket that is a coma I m sure by now you ve all seen the trailers for this movie So you know home girl gets in an accident Which makes it very clear that The Choice will be that he has to either A pull the plug or B not I wont tell you what he chooses to do, but I really don t have to You will know Every part of the ending is PRE DICT ABLE Oh and when the big reveal happened I WAS SO PISSED ROYALLY PISSED I was so annoyed by how everything went that I was praying to the book gods to just have Gabby die Live die, Gabby gonna be real with you I just don t care Actually you know what, just die, it s cool I was told over and over again by several people that that none of this would matter That by the end I would still be a blubbering messI WASN T I did not shed a single tear I cry in almost every book but didn t in this one I think that really says something I was just to busy being angry to be upset.
