was available was A Walk To Remember, and I took it and started reading it Let me just say that I am so happy this book was the only one available, because if a started with, let s say The Guardian, I don t think I would ve continued reading Nicholas Sparks books Now, back to the story I knew Sparks is known for writing tear jerkers, and I knew what was coming at the end What I didn t know was how hard it would hit me, and that I d be crying my eyes out at midnight Yes, the book is pretty slow moving, but once it gets to the story, you won t want to put it down At least I didn t want to put it down Immediately after I was done reading the book and after I was done crying , I jumped on my computer, went on to and immediately bought this book, so I can read it again And I will I will absolutely be reading A Walk To Remember again It s a beautiful book, with quite possibly one of my favorite characters of all time Jamie , and I can only hope everyone I recommend this book to loves it as well So please, even if you re skeptical to start reading Sparks like I was, go to your library and ask if they have A Walk To Remember Oh yeah, and please like it And I m sorry for the crappy

like it Too cheesy for my taste. Then started all over again then stopped again Where was I I forgot the story already. Then for the last 3 days, as I wanted to please my friend Patrick, I read without stopping and I really liked it.It s an easy read and the characters, though caricaturish, are sweet and lovable I mean, the world is full of treachery and duplicitous people but here are Sparks characters that are their total opposites This book is totally an escapist work but I love it It changes the panorama of how we view the world say from dusky and smuggy to sunny, clear with pink tinted gloss It s nice to escape to reality and this book is a nice way to do it.Reading Sparks is like eating at McDonald s Of course I read cerebral and serious books than this Those are the healthy stuff or the steaks or those hard to pronounce French cuisine or those burned Meditterean veggies or those real raw treats in a Japanese resto Despite having all those choices for good books, I still pick, once in a while, a Sparks We know what to expect and we can t deny that we like it Just like going to McDonald s We always see it our our way to work and we know that it is not healthy But still pass by to have a quick fix for our hunger and we cannot deny that we like it flag 45 likesLike see review View all 25

CRY, Mandy MooreThe song Cry, perfectly describes A Walk To Remember It was short, but it would definitely be etched in my cranium for forever.Who wouldn t know Landon Carter and Jamie Sullivan In the movie, they were cast as Mandy Moore and Shane West image error I remember it being a hit when I was in high school years ago I watched the movie and loved it I knew there was a book, but I only had a chance to read it recently And I have to say that the book was just as good Though I have to admit that I found the movie better than the book, but still both had their appeals.Jamie Sullivan, is miss goody two shoes She s too GOOD to be real She gives donations to the poor, goes to the orphanage to volunteer, saves critters on the streets and almost never says no She s selfless and she was ridiculed for it.While Jamie is the ultimate role model, Landon Carter is the complete opposite He s a bad boy, who has a persona that doesn t give a care about the world He litters at the cemetery and he s one of those who ridiculed Jamie.And A Walk To Remember is told by the eyes of Landon It started with him having to go to the homecoming ball with a date He would have to die first than be seen with his mom as his date So he asked Jamie, the last person on the earth anyone would ask But what started with a necessity ended up as a constant want He was once ashamed of being seen in Jamie s company But who could resist Jamie, when she is so sweet He just had to please her And ultimately, he s fallen hard for her We see how he was a boy who walked the earth without actually savoring and changing into a man who knew how to count his blessings and relish them for as long as he could.Well, all I could say is The love story was beautiful while it lasted Well, I guess we all know that Spoiler aheadJamie died End of Spoiler But I swear that Jamie and Landon s love story would touch my heart for as long forever AS long as I don t get amnesia or Alzheimer s flag 36 likesLike see

always thinks about Thus, it doesn t just take twenty gulps to risk for it but takes time and sweat to decide the dilemma whether to give it a shot or not Lately, I decided to widen my braced genres and I thought this book is worth the risk to try So as a love story as this title represents, I m afraid that the further words I will emancipate may loosen up the tightness of the statement I previously, in my reviews, professed.The life of Landon Carter during 1958 has been brought back by his memories Landon is sixteen year old senior high student of Beaufort High School, North Carolina Being a son of congressman, who he rarely see in their house in a year, is normal Being with his friends Eric and Margaret are even normal for him, for he used to be with them since grade school But being the Student Body President is another thing, while signing up for Drama Class is definitely not his thing.Jamie Sullivan is surely the last girl in the world Landon wanted to marry but absolutely not the last girl to ask as a date for the school s homecoming As Landon s world becomes closer to Jamie s, he ll find a plan he never thought fated for him.I was sure then before I tried that I wouldn t like this book, though I was in the mood to read this kind of book The moment I fixed my eyes onto the surface of the first page of the book s prologue, my feet as if set foot onto the world of what I was reading I became the main character himself Marvelous really it is to say how amazing the approach of the main character s perspective to me as a reader Truly effective A perfect thing to add up is that the perspective used in the story is from guy s character, considering that it gives perfect justice to how a guy thinks, utters, and acts.The story composes of just simple elements The typical story of ugly duckling that turns into swan typical story of a jerk guy who fell in love to the swan and a typical story of a man who ll do anything for love The magic of how it turned out to be good is the summation of all those factors Moreover, Sparks really used the overused concepts perfectly during the shifting of events, which of course a positive move for the book to become better I m told that the movie is way better than the book Granted, for I am one of those unfortunates who haven t watched the movie yet Yes, I did not itch to watch the movie the moment it had been shown in cinemas nor did I eagerly wait for it in movie cable channels But I m very much glad, for I think that choosing to read first the book over watching the movie is one way or another, a smart decision.I honestly admire Sparks for writing down the solid description of Jamie Sullivan, yet unknowingly behind her image is a great mystery That despite of the best answer a normal person could offer to the reason of her action, there is still hidden truth behind it that alters the nearest possibility.The greatest thing I liked about this book is the profound messages of the story beyond what are written, though some are already given I liked how faith works at Jamie, that even though everything has been taken from her, she dignifies how her faith still remains I was also touched at how simply a very kind person could turn the people oppositely to what they were There is even presence of the true effects of love, which it leads the in love human to think either sane or insane And the story, in a way, emphasizes how humans should give attention, importance and deeper understanding on the things that surround them not until it s too late And the best of all is how faith can bring out the miracle to the surface out of the deepest pit.I admit that there were many times the book led me on the verge of tears For I reckon that this book, no matter how cold hearted I am, is no wonder a heart moving one flag 26 likesLike see review View all 66 comments May 02, 2013 Namratha rated it liked it review of another edition Shelves romance I am not a Nicholas Sparks fan I

pithy comebacks I expect the heroes to be unassuming to begin with and memorable by the time I shut the book And most of all, I wantno, I DEMAND a happy ending So, keeping all these requirements in mind, A Walk To Remember is not my cup of tea.And yet, dare I use a dreadful pun The books had it s occasional sparks It helped that I read the book and watched the movie based on it simultaneously.In a nutshell, the book is about the quintessential bad boy falling for the Reverend s holier than thou daughter It s about cheeky Landon Carter losing his heart to the angelic Jamie Sullivan It s about one glorious summer in the lives of two teenagers and their journey to a heart breaking end.Shane West plays Landon Carter in the movie With the angular thrust of his eyebrows and his devilish smile, Shane West was better than the paperback Landon Mandy Moore plays the parish s golden girl, Jamie Sullivan Let s just say that paperback Jamie was better than the celluloid one.Amalgamating the two sources, I give you my favourite moments Spark 1 This may seem like a very pompous thing for Jamie to say, but taken into context with what her future holds s poignant.Spark 2 There s something endearing about the way Shane West nuzzles Mandy Moore s shoulder It was symbolic of how hormones were not the governing factor in their relationship And it helps that it was Shane West doing the shoulder nuzzle.Spark 3 The last line wasn t in the book But it was a perfect addition Bible carrying Jamie Sullivan was the girl brimming with faith in God s plan Falling in love with Landon throws a curve ball that makes Jamie vulnerable.Spark 4 A version of Jamie s favourite passage from the Corinthians that she would have liked to be read out at her wedding And which does get read at her wedding It was also, pretty much, the essence of Jamie Sullivan.Spark 5 This line sounds super cheesy but considering the fact that Reverend Hegbert spent a good part of the book disapproving of Landon Carter and his heathen ways, it was pretty special for Landon to hear this at the end of the story.So yes, the book is not for those who want a fast paced read It s not for those who don t want their religion thrust in their faces And give it a miss if you don t fancy bittersweet endings.But, if you want a change of pace if you want to imagine an entirely likeable Shane West as the appropriately cast Landon Carter falling fathoms deep in love if you want to just savour a different facet of loveen this book and movie is the one for you flag 26 likesLike see review Feb 19, 2016

I am a sappy girl like that sometimes I don t read romance novels, and I don t watch chick flicks like they are going out of style, but Dirty Dancing will always be one of my favourite movies, because I grew up watching it over and over So, sometimes I fall in love with a sappy story.In some ways I prefer the movie to the book, which might be only because I had seen it before I read it I struggled with whether to give it two or three stars, because I felt like it was than just ok , it was decent, but when I look back at other books I had given three stars to, I really did not feel like it was on par with them I would have probably loved this had I read it when I was thirteen or fourteen Maybe I have gotten cynical over time, or maybe it s just that I would have related at that age, I don t know, but as sweet as the storyline was, it just didn t pull on my heartstrings like it clearly was meant to I know I teared up during the movie, but the book didn t do it for me for some reason I don t think it was because I already knew what was going to happen it would have been pretty obvious where it was heading had I not ever seen the movie, and I have re read books before and still been as touched as the first time I think it just fell slightly short in capturing the tender moments, and that is where the movie was able to pick it up and elaborate.I wouldn t recommend it necessarily to

outdone himself When I first started reading this, I didn t expect much, seeing as how it was a tragedy and I don t really care for tragedies, after the disaster with Romeo and Juliet LOL However, there was something to this book than other sad books I ve read in my life For one, this book touched my heart REALLY touched my heart and made me ask myself all these questions about love and miracles This is like, the only book in my life that gave me that heartwarming I want to be a better person feeling I love how at the beginnning Landon was just an ordinary high school student who took the smallest details of life for granted, but after meeting Jamie, he saw life and love in a new perspective THIS is the kind of book that could be the new Twilight I feel like people need of these heartwarming, inspiring stories and I m very grateful to Mr Sparks for teaching me a lesson that I m sure others need to learn.First off, I would like to praise the book cover Fits the theme and book title perfectly It reminds me of autumm, memories,walking, and lives changing To me, the book cover shows how 57 years old Landon flashbacks to his senior year when he was a 17 year old Even just looking at the cover makes my insides turn all gooey and reminds me of all Jamie and Landon had to gone through Next, I d like to say I love the whole romance thing How a twist of fate could change a boy s life and make him see what life has to offer him When Landon asked Jamie to go to the school dance, little did he know it would only be the beginning of a long time memory that would last with him forever It s so neat how Jamie and Landon would later fall in love with each other, even though they never expected the unexpected to happen The tiny moments they had with each other rehersing the play, helping out at orphanages, talking on her front porch, etc were beautiful, and makes me fall in love with the book even The whole process of falling for each other ,even though they didn t expect to, was heartlifting and makes the book all the better That is what I expect in YA novels I love how time after time they realize they re in love, instead of those stupid I love you so much even after knowing you for a week romance.I also enjoy getting to know the two main leads Jamie is probably the most inspiring, most unselfish main character that I ve ever known She makes me want to be a better person, and she makes Landon feel that way, too Two weeks ago, I didn t give a rat s ass about poor people or orphans Now, however, after reading this book, I start thinking of miracles and small differences to make the world a better place And the most inspiring, most saddest thing about Jamie was how she knew she was dying for, like, a year but during that year she still wanted to help others in need Besides inspiring and unselfish, Jamie is also one of the bravest characters I know She still stay optimistic, even when nature took its course If I were in her place, I don t think I could be as brave as her I also love Landon Like I said earlier, I think it s amazing how he never notice life s smallest details until he met Jamie Before, he didn t give much thinking into making a difference, but then after getting to know Jamie, he fell in love and wanted to make his girl proud of him by making small but genuine gestures I believe that that is what made him a strong, amazing man at the end of the book For example, at the end of the book, when Landon said he finally believed in miracles, I think he means that Jamie was his miracle, and that he was Jamie s miracle I believe that is what shaped him up He s one of the best growing characters that I d read about And the scene when he married to Jamie was like the most beautiful, lovely, heartbreaking, powerful thing I ve ever read in my life Now that my point is carried across, it s time to wrap things up This was a very good book, and was the first and only book that made me cry in a long time I could read this a thousand times, and I would still choke up a bit It was a beautiful, heartwarming, powerful tearjerker I had just watch the movie for the first time just today, which caused me to write this review In my opinion, the movie was better than the novel, because the movie went deeper than what the book did Plus, it made me cry even than the book Now everytime I see the book s cover, or listen to Mandy Moore s songs Cry and Only Hope , or even think about the lovers behind the most amazing love story ever, I would break down in tears Yes, AWTR was THAT amazing It s saying something when a book

bittersweet experience reading A Walk to Remember.Nicholas Sparks used to be too mainstream and overrated an author for my taste I decided to read this novel on a whim after watching the movie twice and being devastatingly impacted by Jamie s agony.Landon is a popular, rich guy who makes a habit of discreetly picking on Jamie, the priest s daughter who does not know how to match her clothes, does not wear any cosmetics and spends time helping wounded animals, hanging around with her lonely father, praying for her community and donating money to the orphanage Only when Landon is left with no choice but to ask Jamie to prom, do they start slowly getting dangerously close They embark on the most beautiful, short journey which is about to end before it even started when Jamie announces her sickness to Landon.In contrast with the movie, the novel is narrated by Landon Getting inside Landon s head is the most practical narrative technique given his obliviousness to Jamie s dying, which holds readers interest In that way the mystery called Jamie is gradually unfolded before our eyes and when she lets the cat out of the bag all her quirkiness and peculiarities are decoded.Landon is a character who matures a lot throughout the novel I admit that his consenting to others patronizing treatment of Jamie, his not wanting to be seen with her and his having a sudden outburst when the reasons for his befriending her are elucidated aggravated me His telling her that he is forced to spend time with her and sees her as a burden gave me an uncontrollable, unrestrainable urge to throw something hard at him Nevertheless, his emotional heartache which led him to change and scarred him for life compensated for the hideousness of his prejudices against Jamie at the beginning of the story Landon s knocking on his father s door and pleading with him to save Jamie, taking into account the fact that years had elapsed without them talking, was one of the most powerful scenes in the movie which was not emphasized in the novel Jamie was an unconventionally beautiful heroine who had a heavy cross to bear However, she insisted on looking on the bright side because of her faith, the only thing she had left Her decay near the end when her sickness was exacerbated and was not even able to move without painkillers was a punch to the gut I cannot choose between the book and the movie Both were tearjerkers despite the slight differences between them As regards the novel, A Walk to Remember is a heartbreaking, gut wrenching page turner I am not likely to ever forget It wasn t that long, and it certainly wasn t the kind of kiss you see in movies these days, but it was wonderful in its own way, and all I can remember about the moment is that when our lips touched, I knew the memory would last forever flag 18 likesLike see review Apr 23, 2013 Anne rated it really liked it review of another edition Recommends it for Anyone looking for a truly beautiful and simple love story

give you a ready confirmation , but A Walk to Remember usually makes me tear up a few times I ve seen it countless times and love it so much that I thought it was finally time to give the book a shot Typically I always read the book before watching the movie, but that was one I saw first, and didn t even think of reading the book until I stumbled across a used copy in a thrift store I tend to stay away from contemporary romance and I generally hate YA novels, but I was very happy when I started reading to discover that it was set in the late 1950 s I loved the small town atmosphere, and I was quickly swept away into the story, even though I knew most of it and who it would end Comparing book and movie is always fun, and it was very interesting to see how they d changed certain things to better suit it to the screen, but I must say that I absolutely loved all the orphanage related parts in the book It was my favourite aspect of the story compared to the movie because it was so touching, and so beautiful, and really added a new dimension to the high school feel of the book Jamie Sullivan is one of the most inspiring characters ever, because she is so simple and uncomplicated and so easy to follow She s sweet and kind, and sure, she appears saintly , but she s really just a girl who figured out early on what living for God truly means, and how important it is to cling to one s faith no matter what others are thinking or doing around you I love her loyalty, her kindness, her integrity, her generosity and the way she makes it sound so very easy to be good She s so loveable, and so inspiring The charm of this lovely novel all lies in its simplicity and purity the quiet setting, the easy plot, the everyday characters and the beautiful and breathtaking, yet uncomplicated love story that ll make you believe in the most wonderful of fairy tales, without necessitating the encumbrances of ladies stuck in high towers, charming princes on white horses, madcap passions and flowery love declarations No craziness and OMG I M SO IN LOOOOOOVE WHAT DO I DO type of bullshit for you here Just one of the most beautiful, simple, pure and wholesome love stories ever written, which truly deserves to go down in history alongside Romeo and Juliet, Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights and the likes I never thought I d love a YA book this much, but seriously, it s just amazing And I finally understand the title, because of how the ending was written Makes a lot sense now flag 16 likesLike see review View all 18 comments previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 next new

This was my first book by Sparks, and let me tell you, it was perfect It s so hard writing reviews for books you absolutely love, and this review will not do this book justice, so just bear with me I was pretty unsure about this book at first, and when I was told by a friend to read a Sparks book, absolutely any of my choosing, I didn t really want to But, despite not wanting to read I book by him, because I was being stubborn and thought I would absolutely hate it, I went on my library s w This [...]
