Over the weekend I finally finished Nicholas Sparks’ book “The Best of Me.” It certainly wasn’t his best. The plot is pretty predictable and the character who we are supposed to feel is redeemed actually isn’t. He’s never really bad so there’s no room for him to even be truly redeemed even though Sparks tries to push it that way. I can’t really explain it without giving it away, but if you’ve read it you probably know what I’m talking about. Bottom line is that he’s definitely written better.
