Product Description

Amazon.com

In the prologue to his latest novel, Nicholas Sparks makes the rather presumptuous pledge "first you will smile, and then you will cry," but sure enough, he delivers the goods. With his calculated ability to throw your heart around like a yo-yo (try out his earlier Message in the Bottle or The Notebook if you really want to stick it to yourself), Sparks pulls us back to the perfect innocence of a first love.

In 1958 Landon Carter is a shallow but well-meaning teenager who spends most of his time hanging out with his friends and trying hard to ignore the impending responsibilities of adulthood. Then Landon gets roped into acting the lead in the Christmas play opposite the most renowned goody two-shoes in town: Jamie Sullivan. Against his best intentions and the taunts of his buddies, Landon finds himself falling for Jamie and learning some central lessons in life.

Like John Irving's A Prayer for Owen Meany, Sparks maintains a delicate and rarely seen balance of humor and sentiment. While the plot may not be the most original, this boy-makes-good tearjerker will certainly reel in the fans. Look for a movie starring beautiful people or, better yet, snuggle under the covers with your tissues nearby and let your inner sap run wild. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien

5.0 out of 5 stars Words cannot do it justice 12 May 2006
Format:Paperback
Sadly I was one of those people who watched the movie before the book so I knew the story line before I read it. However it still floored me reducing me to tears by the end.

This is one of those rare books for people my age, it is such an innocent and beautiful story that really inspires and gives you hope that true love can still exist.

It tells the story of Landon Carter, a popular rich kid who flys through school on his looks, charm and popular connections. Jamie Sulliven is everything he laughed at with his friends. She carried a Bible everywhere, she worked at the orphanage and of course she was nutorious for her 'stylish' brown sweater. This beautiful story throw these two unlikely people together and tells a moral far beyond anything you could have hoped for from the cover. Jamie turns Landon from a naive, aimless boy to a strong and caring man, breaking your heart in the process.

This book warns you from the start that it will make you cry and it certainly will. It made me laugh, grin, gasp, cry and above all feel hope that there is such a good book with a wonderful message in the world.

Do not be fooled, this book will look normal and predictable but it is so much more, it is a lesson and a treasure that I will keep for the rest of my life. It is more than a romance its a truth and one I would recommend to anyone. Any sex any age you'll love it and you'll smile through your tears till the very last word.

And if you aren't into reading please watch the movie. It is equally as amazing but with mino difeerences however it still floors you and challenges you in a way that movies haven't done fpr a long time.

Words cant truly express how wonderful this book is, it is one of my favourite books by Sparks and if you decide against it then you've made a mistake.

Bravo, bravo.

Having missed the film at the cinema i decided to read the book instead, i am so glad that i did as it is one of the best and saddest books i have ever read and i can't wait for it to come out on video. A walk to remember follows Landon Carter as he remember back to when he was seventeen and how Jamie Sullivan changed his life. Landon needs a date to a dance and as student body president he can't go alone so he asks the daughter of local Baptist minister Hegbert Sullivan Jamie. As repayment Jamie as Landon to star opposite her in her father's christmas play. Landon learns about life and love and not to judge people on popularity.
The ending of this book is one of the saddest i've ever read. Never having cried over a book before I was crying buckets and i just had to read it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 19 Mar 2003
Format:Paperback
Another Nicholas Sparks master piece!
Telling the story of Landon and Jamie, two teenagers from very different backgrounds, A Walk To Remember does that. It takes you on a journey of discovery and through an emotional rollercoaster.
Thrown together during drama club and an eagerly awaited performance of the traditional christmas play Landon and Jamie embark on a relationship that is like no other. For Landon he must ignor his friends comments while Jamie overcomes the protectivness of her vicar father.
A truely amazing story of love conquering all that will make you laugh and blind you with tears, it's a book that can not be put down no matter how hard you try to read a few pages and then do something else. This is a book that must be read in one go with your mind and heart open and ready to accept the beauty and emotion of this wonderful story

5.0 out of 5 stars A walk to remember 2 Nov 2003
Format:Paperback
When I first read the blub of this book, I honestly thought it would not interest me at all, however, I started the book anyway, I was only two chapters in before I was completly hooked with the characters within the novel.
Sparks writes this novel in a way that will get you to smile, laugh and cry all the way through and make you feel as though you are in the novel with the characters.
I can honestly say that this is one of the best books I have ever read and would recommend it to anyone who wants to read about how true love can occur, and just how strong the love between two people can be.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book was FANTASTIC!!!!! I Cried for hours! 21 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I had seen an advert for the film and decided to get the book. I started reading and although it was good, I was not as impressed as I thought I would be. But I Kept going and thank God I did! After the first few introductary chapters this book becomes an insight of what love and the journey towards love is like. I usually read the end page before I get to it, but for some reason I didn't this time and I'm glad because that would have spoiled the greatly effective ending.
The 'Walk to Remember' will stay with me too! Thank you Nicholas Sparks!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and Moving story.... 4 April 2007
Format:Paperback
I actually saw the movie first before i bought the book. But the book is way better than the movie to my opinion. I did cry when i read the book, the story isn't the typical romance book that i usually read. I am a fan of Johanna Lindsey, Judith Mcnaught, etc... etc.... so after reading this different type of romance book really suprised me of how pure and simple love can be.... Its the best romance book i have ever read. Its for anyone who just are suckers for romance books.... A MUST READ!!!
