Share via Email I'm sure many of you know what the majority of Nicholas Sparks's books are: A Walk to Remember was the first Nicholas Sparks book I had ever read, and it was just about perfect. This novel is a bit of twisted take on your average romance novel.
Instead of the good girl falling for the bad boy, it's more of the other way round. Landon Carter, your average high school ruffian is not in the slightest the kind of boy you would expect to like Jamie Sullivan, the quiet girl who always carries around a Bible with her school books. Nevertheless, destiny has a habit of bringing people who are secretly perfect for each other together.
What I found interesting is that it was written from Landon's perspective. Very few romance novels that I've read have been from the male perspective, let alone someone like Landon.
Nevertheless, the way that Sparks has portrayed Landon through the first person narrative allows the reader to see how Landon really feels rather than the way he acts outwardly.
Jamie is a lovely character, the kind of person you'd want to have as a best friend, and by the end of the novel, Landon is the perfect gentleman. There are no two people in a novel that I have ever wanted more to end up together. I admit I'd seen the movie before I read the book, so I already knew the story, but I knew the saying 'the book is always better than the film', so of course I had to read it too!
I can't think of much to write for this review, because it's hard to criticise a book I enjoyed so much. It's such an easy book to get caught up in, and I didn't want to put it down until I'd found out what happened between Landon and Jamie.
A Walk to Remember truly is a beautiful book.
It's a touching feel-good book with a bittersweet ending which is easy to fall in love with. I'm sure it's not the kind of book which will appeal to everyone, but I would wholly recommend it to anyone and everyone.
I'm so glad I read this book, and will probably re-read it many more times! Want to tell the world about a book you've read?
