This book is a love story, now don't get me wrong, I read a lot of love stories, and usually enjoy them, but this one just didn't do it for me. At first I was intrigued about the idea of a diary, and what type of secrets might be revealed, but as it went on I almost put the book down. The diary is for Nicholas, written by his mother Suzanne,which she started before he was even born. In it she describes how she met his father, Matt, how they fell in love, and how he has changed her life.
She writes how much joy and happiness Nicholas has brought to her life, and gives him little life lessons. But the way it's written just makes it seem like a fairy tale, I don't think anyone's life is that perfect. I didn't think it was believable, at least the parts between her and Matt. I don't have kids so I'm not gonna judge how she could feel toward her son. There were also parts of the diary where she described sex scenes. That's what put it over the edge, seriously? Your gonna describe sex to your son? Not so normal. That's why I was confused a little as to who the diary is supposed to addressed to. Overall the story wasn't bad, just over exaggerated. James Patterson should stick to Mystery writing. The ending did catch me by surprise though, and even I almost cried.
There is a movie out, but it's just as bad as the book.
Read it and judge for yourself, or let me know what you think. I personally am happy that it was a quick read.
