Nicholas Sparks' The Lucky One

The Lucky OneThe Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Do you have something that you hold on to against all odds?
I have - its name is FAITH.

With a joyous fair, a big ferris wheel and a shooting star as a girl's memory - a lucky charm was "captured". Lost in a war in Iraq, it was found by a Marine with a french ancestry who doesn't believe in faith and fate, but the latter made him walked across the country to reach his destination.

What did he do as soon as he finds the girl...? No plans. Not even fall in love.
But he did.

Hindi ako naiyak sa novel. But since I pictured Zac Efron as a 28-year-old Marine who can play a piano, I am looking forward to the flick. I hope he can make me cry when I see the movie and be moved by the lines and the so-called "drama".

Nicholas Sparks' A Bend in the Road

A Bend in the RoadA Bend in the Road by Nicholas Sparks
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

10 - that is the number of chapters i cried as i read the novel.

It all started in a Bend in the Road. And there it also ended. It contained two sides of the story - of which, both parties are victims of fate.

If you are given the authority to judge a person (i.e. a part of jury), how would you analyze a crime? should it be coming from your own past experiences? or should it come from a fresh start? How would you react? Objectively? Subjectively? Would you let it all go, or would you still hold on?

Sparks made me cry. And that I cannot deny.
