Message in the Bottle was the first book I've watched and then read 8 years later. As year passess by, I was able to get hold of books written by Sparks. I found out through words how he can inflict emotional wounds and spark raw emotions. He is a master in storytelling that will make you question true love, God's plan and how life is woven intricately. He often draw lines that are worth remembering is applicable to life itself.
