And I was definitely NOT disappointed.
I had so much reading the book that I couldn't put it down. As a result, I managed to finish it in one day. No joke. What I love about it is the fact that it stayed true to the movie. The lines, the words, the fight of the husband and wife, the heart to heart talk with Caleb and his father, and as well with his best friend Michael... Wilson truly stayed true to the essence of the story, adding a couple of scenes to make it richer and more entertaining to read. The best part of this book, I would say, is the part wherein the mother was playing in the Wheel of Fortune, where in the chapter ends with a big BIG surprise for Caleb. And that surprise is something he truly deserves after making a big move to save his marriage with Catherine.
I don't think I disliked or hated any part in the book. I absolutely loved every part. It's so amazing how Wilson constructed this book to definitely complement the movie. It really centers on how Caleb struggled to save his marriage even if at first, he was doing a really lousy job at it. Admittedly, he really wasn't doing a good job at first and that's because he was doing it for the wrong reasons and the wrong motives. And his father was right. How could he give the best kind of love, if he didn't have the Lord in his life, where in it is the Lord who IS love at its very nature, at its very core. When he finally realized this by the grace of God, he managed to finally strive to save his marriage for the right reasons and the right motives and mindset that in the end, even Catherine wanted to be like him because of how much he's changed.
I would definitely buy this book again if given the choice, and maybe I'd give it to a friend as a gift. I lent my copy to my bestfriend and she loved it as much as I did. It's A BOOK WORTH READING. Yes, 5 stars for you, Eric Wilson, great job!!!
The story is a great one that I think partially plays out in a lot of homes these days all over America. Sadly a lot of the families don't end up with the same happy ending.
To me, and I'm no expert on writing nor an English major, the writing was good. Things made sense and flowed well.
The story was inspiring and opened my eyes to the way my relationship was going at the time. I made changes in myself that I have seen manifest in my soon to be wife as well. In this manner the story provides not only entertainment but help in an almost subconscious manner.
