Sparks''s #1 "New York Times" bestseller is now the subject of a new major motion picture, directed by Lasse Hallstrom ("Chocolat") and starring Channing Tatum ("G.I. Joe") and Amanda Seyfreid ("Mamma Mia"), scheduled to open in February 2010. Reissue.
From the Publisher:
An angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life--until he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah. Their mutual attraction quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah waiting for John to finish his tour of duty, and John wanting to settle down with the woman who captured his heart. But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else. "Dear John," the letter read...and with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives were changed forever. Returning home, John must come to grips with the fact that Savannah, now married, is still his true love--and face the hardest decision of his life.
Annotation:
While on leave from the army, John Tyree meets the love of his life: Savannah Lynn Curtis. Despite their many differences--he has a history of drinking, trouble-making, and promiscuity while she is a chaste teetotaler--their love flourishes over the summer. While he's away, Savannah waits longingly for John, even though she is pursued by other men. Then, in the wake of September 11, John re-ups, and Savannah feels like she can wait no longer. Nicholas Sparks once again uses a conflict of values and a bittersweet romance to create a heartfelt page-turner.
Author Bio
Nicholas Sparks
Nicholas Sparks was born on New Year's Eve, 1965, in Omaha, Nebraska. The son of a scholar, his early years were largely nomadic until his father settled into a Ph.D. program at the University of Southern California. Like his father, Sparks excelled intellectually throughout high school and college at the University of Notre Dame. His first love, however, was running. When a severe tendon injury forced him off the track during his first year of college, Sparks, at his mother's request, delved into writing. His first book, THE PASSING, was never published and still sits in his family's attic. Several years passed, during which time Sparks married and had two sons. After surviving uninspiring careers as a real estate appraiser, waiter, telemarketer, and entrepreneur, Sparks wrote his first published work, THE NOTEBOOK. This inspirational love story based on the life of his grandparents was an instant best-seller in 1996. Since then, he has written two other books--MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE (1998) and A WALK TO REMEMBER (1999)--both of which have achieved best-seller status. MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE was adapted for film in 1999 and starred Kevin Costner, Paul Newman, and Robin Wright Penn.
