A Walk To Remember (English Edition) e mais milhares de eBooks estão . With over million copies of his books sold, Nicholas Sparks is one of the world's. The heartbreaking story of star-crossed high school lovers--a rebel and a minister's daughter--who find love and courage in each other, from.
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.

There was a time when the world was sweeter Every April, when the wind blows in from the sea and mingles with the scent of lilacs, Landon Carter remembers his last year at Beaufort High. It was , a There was a time when the world was sweeter It was , and Landon had already dated a girl or two.
He even swore that he had once been in love. Certainly the last person in town he thought he'd fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town's Baptist minister. A quiet girl who always carried a Bible with her schoolbooks, Jamie seemed content living in a world apart from the other teens. She took care of her widowed father, rescued hurt animals, and helped out at the local orphanage. No boy had ever asked her out.
Landon would never have dreamed of it. Then a twist of fate made Jamie his partner for the homecoming dance, and Landon Carter's life would never be the same. Being with Jamie would show him the depths of the human heart and lead him to a decision so stunning it would send him irrevocably on the road to manhood.

I have watched the movie a few times, so will the book be anything like the movie?
Or not? Charity Yoder My dad likes to say that with the movie "at least they got the names right" because they are so completely different. I rated 'A Walk To Remeber' - 5 stars. I would like to read some more of his books.

Especially people skeptical about reading Nicholas Sparks.
This was my first book by Sparks, and let me tell you, it. Searching through the titles, the only one that was available was A Walk To Remember, and I took it and started reading it. Now, back to the story. I knew Sparks is known for writing tear-jerkers, and I knew what was coming at the end.
Immediately after I was done reading the book and after I was done crying , I jumped on my computer, went on to site and immediately bought this book, so I can read it again. And I will. I will absolutely be reading A Walk To Remember again. Oh yeah, and please like it! And I'm sorry for the crappy and barely-anything-to-do-with-the-book review. Hey, A Walk To Remember View all 13 comments. Nobody touch me akdhsjaj. I am surprised by how much I liked this one. This was my first Nicholas Sparks read and after years of it being recommended to me I finally gave in.
I expected a by the numbers, cliche, love story. And it was in a way, but the characters were great and so the journey was great. And sad. You know where this is headed from the very beginning in a way, but it still surprises you at points.
And no, I did not cry I think Manly tears only View all 16 comments. Sep 07, K. Nicholas Sparks might as well be telling me that because I picked this book based on my friend Patrick who has been insisting that this is the best Sparks. You see this is my 6th Sparks. I stopped after reading Safe Haven 2 stars because I got tired of his Hallmark-kind of storytelling.
So, I decided to give Sparks another try with a big doubt whether I would like this. This is "Promise me, that you won't fall in love with me" says Jamie Sullivan to Landon Carter at the beginning of the novel. This is the reason why it took me more than a month to finish this book. I started it and after few pages, I stopped. Promised that I would not 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 more 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.

Jamie was the daughter of a small town baptist minister. Jamie was a sweet, kind girl who liked to volunteer at orphanages and rescue animals.
Everywhere she went she carried her bible and she never put on make up and didn't mix with the so called cool kids. Where as Landon was totally the opposite as he was one of the cool popular kids who would hang out with his friends after dark. Hard to imagine, but Landon finds himself dateless for the homecoming dance and as much as he doesn't really want to ask Jamie to go with him as he knows everyone will talk about him, but he figured it was better than not having a date at all. He held no feelings for Jamie what so ever, but that would all change after the dance and Landon would see Jamie in a totally different way.
Unfortunately Landon would soon learn something that would turn his world upside down. A Walk to Remember is a beautiful love story which I enjoyed. View all 10 comments. Sparks fans, but no one else. A Walk to Remember details the story of Jamie Sullivan, a preacher's daughter who seems to know everything, and Landon Carter, the boy who would never be tempted by Jamie in real life.
The plot is predictable enough, even if you haven't seen the movie. I won't spoil the ending here, but it leaves quite a lot to be desired. I wanted to like this book, since so many people I knew enjoyed it, but I ended up hating it. The material was far too idyllic in some parts, and overly sanguine in others.
I c A Walk to Remember details the story of Jamie Sullivan, a preacher's daughter who seems to know everything, and Landon Carter, the boy who would never be tempted by Jamie in real life. I could see how Nicholas Sparks fans could like it, but it didn't have enough heart or plot to keep me interested. It was short, but it would definitely be etched in my cranium for forever.
In the movie, they were cast as Mandy Moore and Shane West. I watched the movie and loved it. I knew there was a book, but I only had a chance to read it recently.
