Books: The Best of Me

I've just finished The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks and it will probably be the last Sparks book I read. About a quarter of the way through the book (WARNING - spoilers!) I thought to myself, since this is a Sparks' book and he writes love stories, which as he defines it, have tragic endings, one of the main characters is going to die. And I knew which one it would be. When I got to the end of the book and it ended as tragically as I'd hoped it wouldn't, I thought, "Why am I reading such a depressing story?" Yes, it's well written. Yes, it will be made into a movie, but I REALLY hope they change then ending. It's just too sad. Guess I'm a romance reader at heart.
