Being a fan of Nicholas Sparks I was delighted to get the chance to review the audio version of Dear John. The story itself was an extraordinary novel combining all the qualities that we have come to love about Nicholas Sparks’ books. I truly enjoyed reading the book though I felt that the audio version was drab and dry. Although Holter Graham provides the charm of North Carolina while narrating I found myself drifting from the story and had to force myself to listen. Overall it was an amazing story though I think the book version was better.
