    Dear John *spoilers* book vs movie

    Advertisements
    ok, so I just finished the book last night. I'm actually kind of sad how it turned out. But Nicholas Sparks if famous for his touching, not so much happy endings huh?

    I had refused to read it because I didn't like the lead actress in the movie and I knew that if I read the book, I'd have to see the movie. And of course I was right, so next week sometime I'll be watching the movie.

    Even as I read the book I couldn't picture the girl they have for the lead in the movie as Savannah.

    So who would YOU have chosen for that part?

    I LOVED the book. The movie had nothing on it. Theres a different ending in the movie, and I hated the boy actor. I thought the girl was ok though.

    I may reread the book. I really really liked it.

    WOW a different ending in the movie????!!?!?!? GAH! I want you to tell me but then again I wanna wait. It'll probably piss me off then. I hate when too much changes from the book in the movie.

    Yeah, I think a lot of stuff from the book is missing out the movie. But that happens in every movie thats been adapted from a book.

    I hated the ending of the book. I was left with a feeling of unfinished business perhaps? Either way, I loved the movie a lot more.

    I loved the book, and I thought the movie was the absolute most terrible thing I have ever seen in my entire life.
