I wasn't sure about reading this book as I didn't enjoy 'The Notebook' also by Nicolas Sparkes. However, I'm glad I gave this writer another chance with 'The Last Song' as I really enjoyed it.
To begin with the chapters told from different view points were a bit annoying and confusing but I soon learnt the character's voices. However, the changing of voices did mean that I didn't connect to one character in particular but nor did I have any deep empathy for any of the characters.
The story itself was interesting and different from anything I've ever read before, and that was a large part of its appeal. It had a little of everything within it - romance, family, growing up, parenthood - and believe that most people would take something away from reading this.
