We hope you have that box of tissues ready, because based on the Tweets we found regarding Nicholas Sparks’ novel and recently turned movie, The Best of Me, you’re going to seriously need it.
The Best of Me carries all of the hallmarks of Nicholas Sparks’ (usually predictable) plots: lower class guy, upper class girl, love blossoms, and obstacles ensue—the whole shebang—but there is no denying that the tale of Dawson Cole and Amanda Collier is irresistibly charming.
After meeting and falling in love during their teens, Dawson and Amanda are separated and reunited two decades later, only to find that perhaps their love has never faded, despite the different directions their lives have pushed them in.
So it’s no huge surprise that the word, “cry,” cropped up the most by far. Warning: If you don’t want to be seen weeping in the middle of class, a date, the train station, or whatever—tread lightly.
“Amazing,” also came up a ridiculous amount of times:
And let’s not forget the all important heart (❤) emoticon:
As you can see, sometimes all three (“cry,” “amazing,” AND “❤”) intersect!
So although we thought the novel and film to be a little cheesy, others seem to disagree.
Have you read the book or seen the movie? Let us know if you agree or disagree with the majority of Tweeters!
