First Love Revisited
I like the stories Nicholas Sparks tells, but I find I'm distracted by his writing style. Who am I to criticize a New York Times Bestselling Author? But really, the first three chapters were all backstory. He uses passive writing. Almost every paragraph he overuses the word "had", sometimes ten times. If you aren't as criticical as me, you may really enjoy this book. Sad in parts, but realistic, too. It's true there is something about a first love that you compare all others to. The story is about regrets and choices and committments.
