Nicholas Sparks and Miley Cyrus

I've seen a lot of articles on Nicholas Sparks, and people either love him or they don't. USA Today does a piece on him and the star of the film he just wrote, and for once it all sounds so real. (Link.) Although as always, Sparks goes out of his way to distinguish romances from love stories. "(Romances) are all essentially the same story: You've got a woman, she's down on her luck, she meets the handsome stranger who falls desperately in love with her, but he's got these quirks, she must change him, and they have their conflicts, and then they end up happily ever after...The themes in love stories are different. In mine, you never know if it's going to be a happy ending, sad ending, bittersweet or tragic. You read a romance because you know what to expect. You read a love story because you don't know what to expect."

The movie, The Last Song, will be released next week.
