Jun 25, Ashley Heider Kenny rated it liked it. I expected a tragic love story because the book is about a love triangle but in my opinion it is a psychological novel.
I also realized that I needed to read the book because so much of the story was not developed. English Choose a language for shopping. The author writes perfectly.
But back to the book for a minute, which is the part of all this that should be more celebrated. I should have known that this wasn’t going to be my kind of book, but for whatever reason I picked it up anyway.
I think the book would please more older people who have more life experience because for me it was hard to und I had expected more. He does a much better job. Please try again later. The book is a different journey for sure but the emotions and the empathy are deeper. Nicholas Sparks tells the best stories of this kind of theme, in my opinion. But as soon as I reach the part with the lovetriangle I couldn’t put the book down.

While caring for Victor, a brilliant and witty young man who is dying of leukemia, Hilary falls in love with her patient, but her unexpected love for Gordon fills her with guilt.
The incidences in the novel are skewered by Leimbach’s fumbling, underdeveloped style.
He’s tired of the doctors and of being sick so there are many days where she goes out because he sleeps all day. The drama–with the yelling and breaking of things–reminded me of the cheesiest of the daily soap operas and not in the good this-is-so-corny-it’s-funny kind of way.

Or more importantly a book that was made into a film and how books and films correlate. The book makes you want to scream at times and others it makes you want to start crying so be ready for a roller coaster ride. If you’ve seen the movie, you’ve already read this book, but hey.
