Publishers Description
There was a time when the world was sweeter....when the women in Beaufort, North Carolina, wore dresses, and the men donned hats.... Every April, when the wind smells of both the sea and lilacs, Landon Carter remembers 1958, his last year at Beaufort High. Landon had dated a girl or two, and even once sworn that he'd been in love. Certainly the last person he thought he'd fall for was Jamie, the shy, almost ethereal daughter of the town's Baptist minister....Jamie, who was destined to show him the depths of the human heart-and the joy and pain of living. The inspiration for this novel came from Nicholas Sparks's sister: her life and her courage. From the internationally bestselling author Nicholas Sparks, comes his most moving story yet....

Reviews - What do customers think about A Walk to Remember?

just okay  May 29, 2008
I must admit that this book was a page-turner, but I must also admit that I found it trite and schmaltzy. Sparks is a mediocre writer.
A Beautiful, and Poignant Novel!  May 25, 2008
A WALK TO REMEMBER was a novel I checked out from the library because I was tired of fast-paced action novels by John Grisham and Tom Clancy (don't get me wrong; I love Grisham and Clancy). I like dramas and romances, so I checked this one out. It's the first Sparks novel I've read.

I was stunned. Not only was it intelligent and engrossing, but it pierced your soul; it could make you laugh and cry. The book tells the story of Landon Carter, a normal teenager who joins the crowds in stereotyping people, especially the preacher's daughter Jamie Sullivan. She is kind and generous and in no way warrants their behind-back teasing, and she doesn't know about it. But when dance dates are scarce, Landon finds himself asking Jamie. Little does he know that this small choice will lead to a moving chain of events the leads him spiraling into a touching romance that will change his life.

The author writes from first person veiw and honestly depicts life in a small town in the 50s; the widely spread innocence and growing new ideas. The book is engaging in its simplicity; it never tries to overdo any aspect. The novel never tries to be more than the straight-forward love story than it is, and that makes it all the more touching and tear-inducing. Sparks is a master at his trade, and I'm eager to read more of his books.

Highly recommended.
A Forgettable Walk  May 20, 2008
If I could've given this book less than one star, I would have. I saw the movie before I read the book, and loved it. It brought tears to my eyes, and now I know it's because of the talent of the two teen leads. The book? It has cookie-cutter characters, plot as slow as molasses, is filled with manipulative platitudes, and is unbelievably dull. I felt no emotion at all about these characters. As a writing instructor, I've read better novels from beginning writers who instinctively know how to plot a book better than this.

I don't understand why books like this hit the best-seller list. There are thousands of better romance writers out there that are unrecgonized. Me, for one. Not that this book could be, by any stretch of imagination, called a romance. This is a prime example of how the gender of a novelist determines the success of a book in the marketplace. If this book had been written by a woman, I have no doubt it would've gone straight to the remainder bins.

Just okay  Apr 28, 2008
I saw the movie first and like the movie much better, the whole first date thing in the movie was my favorite part and there is none of that in this book.
A Book to Remember  Apr 26, 2008
I was very excited to read this book, I enjoyed it. Sometimes it was like Landon would trail off of the story at the very beginning but then as it goes on you see that he trails off to introduce the characters and make it more heart-warming and tear-jerking. I never really had any tears but it was tear-jerking. Good characters and a great ending (I wasn't expecting it!)
