"There are no authors in my genre. No one is doing what I do."
Stop humiliating yourself, Sparky.
Sparky managed to compare himself to Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Shakespeare, Austen, and Hemingway and insult Cormac McCarthy…all in one interview!
I have yet to read a Sparky book but I have seen every Sparky movie released so far (except for The Last Song, which was released today) and they are all terrible. My favorite is probably The Notebook, but I technically hated that too, so I don’t think that counts.
Considering the plots of every Sparky film out there are nearly identical, Sparky has to be one of the most unoriginal storytellers out there.
It would have been more bearable if he showed some degree of modesty, but when asked about his favorite coming of age novel, he said A Walk to Remember! WHICH GENIUS WROTE THAT?
At least Miley Cyrus was modest enough to say her favorite novel is The Catcher in the Rye instead of, say, her memoir (which she wrote AT SIXTEEN), Miles to Go.
Oh yeah, for the record, a Sparky “love story” is a “romance.” Yeah, there are different variations of love stories, but rarely are those different variations of love stories the focus of a Sparky plot.
And even though I haven’t read a McCarthy novel, he still is a highly respected, Pulitzer Prize winning writer. Got one of those, Sparky? I DON’T THINK SO.
Sorry, Sparky, I used to think you were kinda cool and endearing, despite how repetitve you are, but you’re a total…you know.
