Will's friends resent Ronnie's presence in his life because of the time it takes him from them and Will's mother dislikes Ronnie. However, Will and Ronnie manage to forge ahead despite these difficulties.
On the day that the turtle eggs hatch, Ronnie discovers that her father is dying from stomach cancer. Ronnie is devastated by this news, especially due to the fact that she did not speak to him for such a long time.
When Ronnie's mother comes to take her back to New York, Ronnie makes the decision to stay with her father and help him through the final stages of the illness. Ronnie shuts out everyone in her grief, including Will, struggling within herself to find a way to honor her father and make up for her childish behavior after the end of her parents' marriage.
Eventually Ronnie realizes the best gift she can give to her father is to embrace her own gift, to return to the piano. Ronnie finishes a song her father had been writing before his illness forced him to stop. Ronnie begins playing for her father each day as the cancer slowly takes away his life. After her father's death, Ronnie returns to New York and auditions to attend Julliard. Will, whom Ronnie thought was gone from her life for good, comes to New York to attend school and to be close to her.
Through their mutual love of music, the estranged duo learn to reconnect. They live with their mother until this summer when they are sent to live with their father Greg Kinnear in a small town on the beach. Ronnie resents her father and has no intention of being friendly or even talking to him for the summer. But after meeting a handsome guy and beginning to fall in love, Ronnie starts rediscovering her love for music, something she shares with her father.
Reconnecting with music revives a kinship with her father which proves to be the most important relationship she may ever experience. Ronnie would rather be in New York City than be with her father, who she believes abandoned her three years earlier. Steve, a concert pianist, tries to reconnect with Ronnie through their love of music.
My heart was lost from page one. And Steve, Oh, Steve.
I completely adored him since page 1. I couldn't have asked for a better father figure for the kids. He was so patient and everything Ronnie needed.
I was so happy to see how he finally managed to get in good terms with his children again. But the best thing about this book was the process, to see how both of them started trusting and caring for their father once again.
The book: I just loved how everything developed. Everything connected just right at the end. And what an ending. I love books with a HEA. I'm not kidding with the tissues, you will really NEED them.
This book was so heartbreaking at times that I felt my heart breaking into a million pieces. It touched me in ways I never thought a book could. I just loved this read and would strongly recommend it.

It's kinda like predictable but all in all it's really meaningful and highly recommended to all Sparks fans. View all 17 comments.

There was only one author who I discovered to have more novels than Sparks with such an achievement on Goodreads.
It's easy to figure out why people like this novel, and I understand and value all of the raving opinions. The concept is pretty interesting, too. A teenage-girl one step before entering adulthood trying to deal with life and the obstacles thrown at her, her dysfunctional family trying to hold together what hasn't already been shattered, and this gorgeous boy from neighborhood who is so sweet and courteous and attentive that it seems like Nicholas Sparks wants you as a reader to fall in love with him as well.
And that's already the problem: I just don't download it. People can be as beautiful as possible, but it's impossible to judge whether the soul behind that beauty is just as beautiful However, Sparks defined Will, the protagonist's love-interest, as sweet and beautiful and successful and Throw in the facts that Will rescues endangered animal species, has a lot of friends and experience and is one of the best atheletes in his town.
Let's summarize: He is the perfect guy. It seems like Nicholas Sparks wants to handle every stereotype available out there.
He introduces the cruel, mean antagonist who finds pleasure in making life difficult for others, terrorizing them and treating women like shit. Guess the purpose of this? To make the perfect guy shine even brighter, of course. Nobody is as perfect as Will Blakelee, but Sparks seems to want his reader to believe just that. But allow me to question one thing: If Will had had the same character, but another appearance, not the Liam Hemsworth kind, but a not-so-attractive guy I guess not.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against romance novels. I liked Ronnie, the female protagonist, and the story of her family, I adored her little brother Jonah, and the writing was not as bad as I initially feared. But I do have something against novels defining love by how good-looking people are. View all 35 comments.

I thought I should give this novel a chance, thus I read this again to see if I will like this more on the second time. I didn't like it, but rather I love it! I could see myself on Ronnie's shoes at family matters only. And how I wish that I have someone like Will in my life too just like Ronnie.

Ronnie is rebellious and having been arrested for shoplifting back home, a quiet summer in North Carolina might be the best thing for her. At least that's what her mother thinks. Ronnie arrives with the intention of ignoring her dad. On her first night there she wanders the beach and meets a girl, Blaze, who seems okay. But Blaze is addicted to Marcus, and Marcus is bad news.
And Marcus is interested in Ronnie. Ronnie can tell Marcus is trouble and tries to avoid him. But the triangle will ultimately create problems. On a brighter note, Jonah is totally content in North Carolina and with spending time with his father. He has no desire to return to New York City. Jonah has joined his father in creating a replacement stained glass window for a church that burned in town.
As the summer unfolds, Ronnie falls in love with a local boy, Will. She discovers the wonders of Loggerhead turtles. And she learns to trust her father all over again. As the summer comes to a close, more than one tragedy occurs, and Ronnie must face some hard truths in her life.
I have to admit that it's been a while since I truly loved one of Mr. Sparks' novels. Don't get me wrong, I do adore his work. But it's been ages since I sat down with one of his books and found myself with tears in my eyes. This was one of those rare stories. With about forty pages to go in the novel, I found myself with wet eyes and the sniffles. As with all of Mr. Sparks' books, expect tears, joy, love, and ultimately redemption and forgiveness for many of the characters.

This is probably my favorite out of all of his books. I have read almost all of them and so far, this one takes the cake. I fell in love with the characters, cried when they cried of course , got mad when they did stupid things, and was rooting for Ronnie the entire time. So often we tend to adapt to those around us and do our best to fit it at any cost emotionally, physically, etc.
It is not until she is forced to come see her dad that she finds out who she is and what is truly important in life. I highly recommend it to teens and adults alike and will definitely be going to see the movie at the end of March.
Loved this book. It was different to the movie and went into more detail. I loved the ending better than the movie, after such a sad thing that happened I was glad Ronnie and Will get back together. The Last Song is Sparks' fourteenth published novel fifteenth published book , and was written specifically as the basis for the film adaptation by the same name. It was released on September 1, by Grand Central Publishing. The story revolves around the summer of Ronnie Veronica Miller's seventeenth year, during which she is sent to stay with her estranged father.
Through their shared love of music, the duo reconnect. Her mother decides that it would be in everyone's best interest if Ronnie and her year-old brother, Jonah, spent the summer in Wrightsville Beach with Steve. Jonah is excited, while Ronnie can only wonder why her parents hate her so much as to send her there for the summer.
Dec 05, Arlene rated it liked it Shelves: However, The Last Song took me quite a while to get into, and I was very close to throwing in the towel and giving up. To be honest, I realized I went into reading it with a bad attitude. Miley Cyrus. Not a huge fan of hers, so when I started this book, her image and voice resonated in my brain and it matched perfectly with Ronnie's short for Veronica character.
Coupled with the fact that her attitude at the beginning of the novel was a huge turn-off, I was close to calling it quits UNTIL something happened on page … Ronnie saved the sea turtles… oh sweet nibblets, she had to go and save the sea turtles and my attitude soften and I plowed through the rest of the book in a few short hours.
After three years of anger and alienation from her father, she is forced to spend the summer in Wilmington with her dad, a former concert pianist and teacher.
During this summer of growth, revelation and maturity, Ronnie is faced with the possibility of mending her differences and coming to terms with her new reality. Good book with a slow start but strong ending.

I like the way he writes and the way he depicts life in the most real way possible. This book had something true to it, well, it must have been the characters who had a vibe of realness in them that most books lack sometimes. Ronnie is a seventeen-year-old girl who's definitely have some issues with her parents.
It all began three years ago when her parents got divorced and she never talked to her father ever again. This summer though she and her little brother have to spend her summer with their father in the little town where he lives.
Ronnie starts mending her relationship with her father slowly and steadily while in the meantime she makes enemies and friends and most importantly falls in love with one of those guys she never liked or felt attracted to, but Will is the exception.
Will is the only person in the world that can actually put up with Ronnie and her peculiar self she is most widely know for. He chases her and not for one minute does he give up on her until she's his. And they fall in love, they spend their summer together, always together, doing things together like watching over the turtle nest outside Ronnie's house because a raccoon has been seen lurking around.
They kiss and they talk and they learn about each other. It's so beautiful. And so real. Which is why I loved it so much. I've certainly watched my share of romantic movies based on Mr. Spark's novels but I've never quite liked them that much that I would grab the book and read it but maybe it's just that the movies lack what his books have, that magic and realness because the movies seem somehow shallow..
Well, okay, read this because it's heartbreaking and heartmending and it explores lots of things about the parent-kid relationship. That's about it. Thanks for reading! After her parents divorced, seventeen year old Veronica "Ronnie" Miller felt as if her world was crumbling around her, especially when her father decides to move from New York City to Wilmington, North Carolina.

Ronnie's father is a former concert pianist and teacher who now lives a quiet life, but that may all change once Ronnie arrives. Could this be exactly what Ronnie needs or could it make things worse? An enjoyable story which I'm sure will be enjoyed by Nicholas Sparks fans and those alike. View all 3 comments. View all 7 comments. And those were understatements. I cried a lot. Half way through the book, I decided I would download the osp for the movie.
And while reading, I was listening to the song over and over again. It didn't bother me. It actually made me appreciate the book more. A long time a go, after reading The Choice, I swore to myself I will never read a Nicholas Sparks's book again until my friend told me this was good. And I will never regret it.
I don't even like her but the song was great. I remembered going inside my room when I reached chapter 30 because I knew something will happen and will bring me to tears. Then I read Chapter I cried so so much. And when i finished crying, I'll hear the chorus of the song, and read more touching scenes and I will cry again. I repeated that process over and over and over again.
