Nicholas Sparks has done it again with yet another well-written book. I loved how he mixed a little bit of mystery and suspense in this one, and just can’t put the book down. It left me at the edge of my bed, eager to find out what will happen in the end.
In See Me, we follow Colin Hancock, a 28-year old with a dark past that he just wants to set aside by trying to make things right and Maria Sanchez who has a very traumatic past that made her return to Wilmington in the first place. As soon as Colin and Maria’s paths collided, challenges and disturbing events have taken place.
I’ve never been into reading mystery and suspense books before, but I’ve always wanted to give it a try. In See Me, I got just what I wanted as it was not as intense as the other books that really focuses on those genres. It’s a great start, for me, at least.
What I liked most about this book is how well Nicholas Sparks has written it despite trying to mix genres along with his usual romance-chick-lit books. There are lessons in this book about life and how people can change if they only put their hearts into it. Most of the time, I found myself having realizations about growing up and why we all even bothered to speed things up when we were little.
Overall, this book was amazing in many ways; I don’t even have the words to explain all of it other than that Nicholas Sparks has proved to us again that he is a master when it comes to writing.
