I have to say that I respect Nicholas Sparks.
YES, all his books are really sad and someone almost always dies...I'm trying to think of one where someone doesn't. None come to mind.
The thing that I like most about him as a person (more so then his writing) is that he is always going. There is always a new book out that he has had published.
There have been amazing books like Harry Potter and Twilight that are like One Hit Wonders. I feel sometimes like those authors made there millions and are over it. But Nicholas keeps going, keeps writing. He is obviously passionate about it and I like that.
His books have been made to MOVIES My favorite being "A walk to remember" and "The notebook"
My point is, that I might not be super into all his books, but he keeps going, keeps writing and no matter how successful he is he doesn't seem to get enough.
I LOVE THAT!
