    LOL!!!! How irony the man who’s wrote a novel about love is failed on his own marriage. I guess his next book will called Love Is Dead. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OSmITtaX3o

    He writes about love, he doesn’t claim to be an expert on it. People like you are why he should have put a disclaimer saying that before announcing his divorce.

    That is so sad. Why do people even get married anymore when it’s something so easy to walk out on? Marriage is supposed to be for life. Til death do us part. There are good times and bad times in every marriage but if you are committed you will get through it.

    So let me get this straight, this man who’s wrote a story about a boy chasing a girl, a boy who should fight for his girl, never quit when love is been tested, and now divorcing his wife. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OSmITtaX3o

    You don’t know the circumstances of his relationship, maybe he fought for her but she never fought for him & he had enough. Regardless, he writes fiction. It’s escapism. It’s a fantasy. In fiction anything is possible, love can be anything someone wants it to be. But in the REAL WORLD, love doesn’t conquer all. Know the difference and stop being a jerk.

    Must be one of those crazy fans. It’s okay just keep escapism. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OSmITtaX3o

    Actually, I’m only a fan of the Notebook & didn’t even know this man had anything to do with it until now. I’ll tell you what I’m a fan of, people who aren’t ignorant twats like yourself. Keep on living in a box (and keep on posting those youtube vids as though anyone is actually gonna click on them).

    My only issue is you and your brand of sarcasm.
