I like my love stories with a little more pizzazz, wit and humour. I want the heroines to be headstrong and dripping with 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 want 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? It helped that I r I am not a Nicholas Sparks fan. 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 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 love So beautiful: My favourite part here is the part where Landon starts to change.. My only problem was that I felt their love but I couldnt feel their sorrow..
Am I making sense? Eventhough I really liked this book, I have to say, I had expected a little more when I first started it: The movie meant a lot to me than the book did. Te diriges hacia una calamidad sin precedentes. Esto recapitula mi experiencia agridulce al leer Un paseo para recordar. Por su comunidad y donando dinero al orfanato. De esa manera, el misterio llamado Jamie se desarrolla gradualmente ante nuestros ojos y cuando deja que el gato salga de la bolsa, toda su rareza y peculiaridades se decodifican.
Landon es un personaje que madura mucho a lo largo de la novela Al decirle que se ve obligado a pasar tiempo con ella y la ve como una carga, me dio una necesidad incontrolable e incontenible de lanzarle algo con fuerza. Ambos eran tristes a pesar de las ligeras diferencias entre ellos.
Read prior to GR. I just bought this last week for my daughter, so you never know.
I may re-read. Loved the movie too, the lesser known Shane West was a fave from my very most fave show ER.
Sweet, innocent and hopeful. What's not to love about that? In every way, a walk to remember. The writing was easy and the plot wasn't too complicated. At first, Landon's character really pissed me off but he g 'It was, I remembered thinking, the most difficult walk anyone ever had to make. At first, Landon's character really pissed me off but he grew to be okay. And Jamie was just such a sweetheart I couldn't help but like her.
In my opinion, the story lacked any sense of originality but it was an easy read and enjoyable nevertheless. I only picked up this book from the library because they didn't have the specific books I was looking for in, so I walked through the aisles and randomly selected a few so the trip wasn't a waste.
When I saw it on the shelf, I remembered that someone a while ago had recommended that I read it and "The Notebook" by Nicholas Sparks, and because books are almost always better than the movie versions, I decided to give it a shot.
I actually liked the movie when I saw it. I am a sappy girl like that s I only picked up this book from the library because they didn't have the specific books I was looking for in, so I walked through the aisles and randomly selected a few so the trip wasn't a waste.
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 more 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 more cynical over time, or maybe it's just that I would have related more 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 anyone, but I also wouldn't suggest to someone that they shouldn't read it.
I've definitely read worse. My first Nick Sparks book, a beautiful one too. At first I was kind of reluctant to read it since the story is set in and I thought it was going to be slow and well, boring. I particularly love the stark contrast between Landon, the bad boy gone good, and Jamie, the devout Christian girl who is everything nice on the surface and with closer inspection, a strong character whom I f My first Nick Sparks book, a beautiful one too.
I particularly love the stark contrast between Landon, the bad boy gone good, and Jamie, the devout Christian girl who is everything nice on the surface and with closer inspection, a strong character whom I find myself admiring and can't help falling for much like Landon did after he got to know her. It is amazing, not to mention touching to see how their relationship from an unlikely friendship develops into something much more.
I was smiling the whole time and it was so beautiful, so romantic! I have to admit a lot of tears were involved both sad and happy during this particular scene. Fair warning; make sure you are in the vicinity of Kleenex, they really do come in handy. A lot. Of course, eating comfort food later sure helps as well. Highly recommended for those seeking a beautiful story about young love.
Hated it. First and last Sparks book for me. Tried way to hard to go for the tear jerking moments. What can I say? I can't even begin to explain how wonderful this book was. Once again, Nicholas Sparks 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 more 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 more 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 years-old Landon flashbacks to his senior year when he was a 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. 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. 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. 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.
His father is a genial, charismatic congressman. His father is not around very much, as he lives in Washington, D. Landon is more reclusive, which causes some tension in their relationship. Landon's father pressures him into running for class president. His best friend, Eric Hunter, who is the most popular boy in school, helps him and, to his surprise, Landon wins the in the school's production of The Christmas Angel. While Landon is not very enthusiastic about participating, he agrees to it anyway.
Jamie, on the other hand, could not be happier about her new cast mate. Landon knows that if his friends learn about his role in the play, he will be teased relentlessly. One day at rehearsal, Jamie asks if Landon will walk her home, after which it becomes routine. A couple of days later, Eric mocks the couple during their walk home and Landon becomes truly embarrassed to be with Jamie. Meanwhile, Landon continues to learn about all the people and organizations Jamie spends her time helping, including an orphanage.
Landon and Jamie visit the orphanage one day to discuss a possible showing of The Christmas Angel,but their proposal is quickly rejected by Mr. When Jamie and Landon were waiting to meet Mr. Jenkins, she tells Landon that all she wants in the future is to get married in a church full of people and to have her father walk her down the aisle. While Landon thinks this is a strange wish, he accepts it. In truth, he is beginning to enjoy his time with her. One day, while they are walking home, Landon yells at Jamie and he tells her that he is not friends with her.
The next day at the first show of The Christmas Angel, Jamie enters the stage dressed as the angel, making Landon simply utter his line, "You're beautiful," meaning it for the first time. Following that, Jamie asks Landon if he would go around town and retrieve the jars containing money collected for the orphans' Christmas presents.
Jamie downloads gifts for the orphanage, and Landon and Jamie spend Christmas Eve there. Jamie's Christmas gift to Landon is her deceased mother's Bible. As they get in the car to go home, Landon realizes his true feelings for her. The next day Landon visits Jamie at her house, where they share their first kiss on her porch. While Hegbert initially refuses, after Landon declares his love for Jamie, Hegbert allows it. On New Year's Jamie and Landon go to dinner, where they share their first dance.
A couple of weeks later, Landon tells Jamie that he is in love with her. In many ways, Jamie Sullivan was my younger sister. Like Jamie, my sister was sweet. Like Jamie, my sister had tremendously strong faith. Like Jamie, my sister loved church. Like Jamie, my sister was always cheerful. Like Jamie, all my sister wanted in life was to get married. Like Jamie, my sister met someone. Even when he knew she was sick, even when he knew that she might not make it, this man asked my sister to marry him.
Established in as a trade and customs port, Beaufort is the third oldest town in the state and is steeped in colonial charm. Nowadays, Beaufort is known as a summer retreat, where visitors and resident alike can enjoy the shopping and dining on the waterfront district, or take ferries to nearby Cape Lookout, Shackleford Banks, or Carrot Island, where wild horses roam free. The daughter of a minister Mandy Moore meets the only son Shane West and the story takes us through hard times, love and bitter sweet passion.
This great love story shows us that it all comes down to who is by your side and who is willing to stand up for love even when it seems impossible. As I mentioned in the notes, this is the most frequently asked question I receive. There are a number of things that I have to explain before I get into the answer so you can understand my reasoning. Part of it goes back to Message in a Bottle. In a nutshell, while many readers loved the ending of that novel, a great many were furious with me for it.
Really furious. This was on my mind while writing Walk, and part of me thought that if I killed off another major character, my readers would never forgive me.
Nonetheless, when I started the novel, I knew that Jamie was going to die. Every page, every scene, every chapter was written with that idea and it continued to proceed that way right up until the end of the novel, when the time came to write those words.
I marveled at her strength and faith, and I was proud of everything for which she stood. So I found myself in a dilemma.
Also, keep in mind that the story was also inspired by my sister, who was very much alive as I neared the end of the novel.
But because of all that I had written with her death in mind, because she was growing weaker and weaker throughout the story, it would have been dishonest and frankly, very manipulative , to have Jamie suddenly cured. I could imagine some readers reaching the end and thinking, if that was the case, why the big build-up with her sickness?
Others might close the book and think the entire novel was believable … up until that point. So what was I to do? I opted for the only solution, the solution that best described the feeling I had about my gravely ill sister at that point: I wanted readers to finish with the hope that Jamie lived.
