Message in a Bottle

A few days ago, it was my first time to ever read the work of the famous Nicholas Sparks. Lame right? I know. I've heard his name all through out high school as his name became synonymous with A Walk to Remember and The Notebook. But i never got the time to read his book even though how much i love the movies that were based on his novels.

The story is about a man who love someone dearly and even after his wife's death the love that they shared still haunts him. Coping up with his loss, he wrote letters to his dead wife, sealed it in a bottle and tossed it in the ocean. And a divorced woman who was married with the man whom she fell hopelessly in love with, only to find him cheating all along. A message in a bottle washed to the shore, that made too lonely souls meet.

The novel talks about finding love, living it for a short period of time and eventually lost it in the end. Tragic right? It's a sad story. I hope i didn't spoil the book for those who have not read it yet, however, i do hope you'll be intrigued. As i'm in the last few pages of the book i kept hoping for a sudden twist of the story. Unfortunately.. I ended up in tears and disappointment. :(

There is also a movie based on this, but i do not have the time to watch this film yet.. I'm hoping soon, just curious! :)
