The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

i just finished reading the novel 'The Last Song' by Nicholas Sparks. i bought the novel about a week ago. heard about this novel through a magazine.

The synopsis : Seventeen-year-old Veronica "Ronnie" Miller's life was turned upside down when her parents divorced and her father moved to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains alienated from her parents, particularly her father...until her mother decides it would be in everyone's best interest if she and her brother spent the summer with him. Resentful and rebellious, Ronnie rejects her father's attempts to reach out to her and threatens to return to New York before the summer's end. But soon Ronnie meets Will, the last person she thought she'd ever be attracted to, and finds herself falling for him, opening herself up to the greatest happiness - and painn - that she has ever known.

i'm totally into this book. one of my favourite this year. although i find the first few chapters were quite slow, but still bearable though. Ronnie was absolutely sarcastic and funny at the same time that was impossible not to love her. and the same goes to Will. even though he is charming, athletic and rich but he also has the downside, he can sometimes be really violent. and i love the way the relationship between Ronnie and her younger brother, Jonah. i would probably say that Jonah is my favourite character in this movie. he's so funny, he basically lits up the story. anyway, this novel evolves around the love-hate relationship Ronnie had with her father. how he tried to be nice to her, tried to win her heart back, and how she's always being mean to him, yelling at him, ignore him and always hurting his feelings because she still mad at him for leaving them behind. this story don't just involves between a father and a daughter, it also touch the value of friendship. how far will one go to save a friend. towards the end, i find it so sad, i couldn't help but CRIED. yes, i CRIED. so badly.

from the scale of 1 to 10, i gave this novel...8 for the great storyline between a daughter and her lonely father (ini semua sebab cerita Papadom, dah terjatuh cinta dengan cerita-cerita famili ni. hehe!) and the ability to make me cry during Aidiladha. haha.

this novel has been made into a movie. just waiting to be release somewhere around April next year. being a huge fan of A Walk To Remember (another movie adaption of Sparks' novel), i can't wait to see how the movie will turn out to be. Miley Cyrus as Ronnie and not-so-famous-actor will play the role, Will. hope it will be good as the book. crossed my finger.
