I'm a hopeless romantic and a registered nurse so this book really appealed to me. I enjoyed its humor; giggling at the funny parts and I also sobbed over the touching parts like about his mother. I read this book before I had to chance to watch the movie based on this. I have to say I was disappointed that they had to cut down the story so much for the movie, leaving out aspects/subplots that I thought made the book more enjoyable and have more substance. I knew my sister was going to enjoy this book so I bought it for her as a gift.
