Essay from the year 2011 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 100, , language: English, abstract: The Last Song is written by #1 New York Times Bestselling author Nicholas Sparks and released on September 8, 2009 by Grand Central Publishing . Also it was the number one on the weekly bestseller chart of New York Times Best Sellers List on September 18, 2009, and many reviews were written about The Last Song. Besides them, its new movie has been started to play on the cinemas in the U.S.A. since March 31, 2010, so this book is so popular and remarkable, because the characters’ behaviours and qualities are created uniquely, the book really impacts on our lives, and some religious informations and sacred books are related with the characters’ situations and the events in the book. First of all, the writer creates the characters and gives them some behaviours uniquely. Firstly , the change in Ronnie from a stubborn girl to a mature young lady makes the book more remarkable and special. For example, the novel states that “It was the first time since she’d been here that she’d spoken to him without a hint of anger or frustration. “ (pg.104) (...) Another reason why this book is remarkable is that the writer really impacts on our lives. First of all, this novel teaches us that there are significant moments that we mustn’t miss them and mustn’t regret what we miss. One example of this is “I was so mean to him. I quit the piano! I blamed him for everything, and I didn’t say more than a few words to him for three years! Three years! And I can’t get those years back. But maybe if I hadn’t been so angry, he might not have gotten sick. Maybe I caused that extra... stress that did all this. Maybe it was me!”(pg. 321) (...) Finally, some religious informations and sacred books are related with the characters’ situations and the events in the book appropriately. Firstly, in this novel there are things about presence of God, praying and hope. The novel states that “(...)Never forget that God is your friend. (...)He longs to hear what’s been happening in your life. Good or bad, whether it’s been full of sorrow or anger, and even when you’re questioning why terrible things have to happen. So I talk with him.” (pg.165) (...) As a final word, the characters’ behaviours, situations and creations are unique, and the book really has an effect on our lives ,and using religious connections make the book more remarkable. (...) There are also journal entries and vocabulary.
