at first sight



i realized i'm not a nicholas sparks fan anymore. i find this book a letdown, can't say major letdown..slight lang hehe...

though i loved a walk to remember and the notebook so much i remembered i stopped buying his books after having predicted the ending of a bend in the road even midway to its story.

maybe i imagined it to be much of a hardcore love story or a suspense love thriller, if there is such. i found the first few chapters to be too mundane, too ordinary. i mean, most couples are actually going through what was described and i learned nothing new there (or maybe because i just Pex a lot :D ) and those suspicious emails were just sort of a lousy distraction and was never resolved anyway.

the ending may not have been predictable but it was a major disappointment. sigh. i'll still might read his books if my sister still buys them (paging!) but i don't think i'd buy them again for myself. bleh!

how about you, have you read it and actually like it??

  1. I've read both A Walk to Remember and The Notebook but not At First Sight. I've loved the former and also its movie adaptation since I'm a Mandy Moore fan(sshhh!). I'm more into reading Michael Crichton and John Grisham books.

  9. Hehe, Mandy fans! She has a movie coming up with Diane Keaton titled Because I Said So. Unfortunately, I don't think it's gonna be shown here. Didn't see it in clickthecity kasi but I do hope ipalabas pa rin dito.
