So I finished Dear John and I have to say I was sort of disappointed. It was a good story, but wasn't what I was expecting. You know when everyone raves about something about how it's the BEST or it's so AMAZING, and then you experience it for yourself and you are kind of just like that's it? I (surprisingly) never felt fully attached to the characters. I think I might still see the movie though, because I think it will be better than the book. I also feel sort of dumb because I didn't catch the "hidden meaning" in the title. If you don't know what a "Dear John letter" is and are planning to read the book don't look it up. If curiosity gets the best of you read this. On a positive note, it does send a unique message about love.
Have you read it? What are your thoughts?
