Book Review: The Last song

Another story by Nicholas Spark

He is the kind of writer who write something close to everyone heart which is family.
Compare to his other book that I have read, this one took me quite a while since I started it to get me hook up with it. But when I get to the middle part of the story, I start to feel Nic Spark charm once again.
Family is everybody most important elements of life.
Whether you have it or even they are no longer with you
come what may
family is always a family.


Seventeen year-old Veronica “Ronnie” Miller’s life was turned upside-down when her parents divorced and her father moved from New York City to Wilmington, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains angry and alienated from her parents, especially her father… until her mother decides it would be in everyone’s best interest if she spent the summer in Wilmington with him. Ronnie’s father, a former concert pianist and teacher, is living a quiet life in the beach town, immersed in creating a work of art that will become the centerpiece of a local church. The tale that unfolds is an unforgettable story about love in its myriad forms – first love, the love between parents and children – that demonstrates, as only a Nicholas Sparks novel can, the many ways that deeply felt relationships can break our hearts… and heal them.


“Life, he realized, was much like a song. In the beginning there is mystery, in the end there is confirmation, but it’s in the middle where all the emotion resides to make the whole thing worthwhile.”
the special bonding between Ronnie and her dad was piano. But when she felt betrayed by her father, she quit and hate it as much as possible. 

One thing I realize when I read this novel, when we have problem, we tend to blame someone. We want to see that we are the victim. People supposed to understand us. Everyone else are at fault.

But if we take time to think and observe, we are not the only person who are in pain, people around us are also hurt and coping in their own one.

Things that I liked about Ronnie is, her ability to think and consider how far she want to get into when try to get into trouble but when she get mad, that ability to rationalise just vanish into a thin air. And blame it on everything else. 

Nic Spark really know how to hit our tears point using the father figure, I admit that the succeed that on me. Beautiful story about family, love,friendship, unconditional love and faith.

I also learn that he wrote the screenplay for the movie first before he started this novel. Well I never watch the full movie yet coz I'm not really fond to Miley Cyrus. Some said that the movie was really good. Well I'm not so sure about that.  You read and watch the movie, then you decide.


Ke hulu ke hilir ku bawak buku ni, 3 minggu baru dapat habis

bedtime story yang bahaya, sampai part best memang tak boleh berhenti
