[Review] True Believer
Title: True Believer
Author: Nicholas Sparks
Genre: Romance, Drama, Fantasy
Barnes & Noble
The setting of the story is divided among two very distinct places; the first setting is in the rambunctious city of New York, and the second setting is in the small town called Boone Creek in North Carolina. Aside from these contrasting places, were two very different people who met and were soon ensconced in a whirlwind of all whirlwind romances.
What I liked best about this novel is the way Nicholas Sparks portrayed the contrasting lifestyle of people. And the way that two very different individuals could complement each other in more ways than one.
When I got to the last part of the novel, I didn’t have quite a clue as to what to expect anymore. To say that I was beginning to be disappointed was an understatement. The typical romance was already patched up and love once again triumphed despite odds and ends. What else was new? The answer came to me at the very last part of the story. And that was where everything made sense.
Just as you think you've read everything there was in this story, it suddenly gives you something pleasantly unpredictable just as it ends. And that is exactly what made it so endearing.
