Lately, I decided to widen my braced genres and I thought this book is worth the risk to try. Jamie was the daughter of a small town baptist minister. 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. I expected a by the numbers, cliche, love story. They are quite different from each other but still odds work in their favor and become together.
Nicholas Sparks waves his magic romance wand once again, this time over the ideal of transformational first love. Of course I read more cerebral and serious books than this. 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. Now, in A Walk to Remember, he tells a truly unforgettable story, one that glimmers with all of his magic, holding us spellbound-and reminding us that in life each of us may find one great love, the kind that changes everything. They then discuss Jamie's father, Hegbert — his worries and fears. No other author today touches our emotions more deeply than Nicholas Sparks. Jamie is such social poison to Landon's insecure circle that he avoids her at all costs, until, as the newly elected class president desperate for a date to the dance, he asks her, certain that she'll be available.
Certainly the last person in town he thought he'd fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town's Baptist minister. Analysis Although this chapter revolves around Landon's newfound interest in Jamie, his desire to ascertain whether she feels the same, and, if she does, his interest in kissing her at some point, it's not all lovey-dovey. 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. Jamie's life, short but meaningful, demonstrates how important it is to take risks such as letting yourself love someone without regret. In the movie, Landon was in trouble and was forced to work in the play and help kids who needed tutoring. The novel, set in Beaufort, North Carolina, is a story of two teenagers who fall in love with each other despite the disparity of their personalities. 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.
Though they know of each other through school, they really did not know each other until they both were in the same school play. And I have to say that the book was just as good. Sometimes Jamie seemed oblivious of situations that were happening right in front of her. They say opposites attract and for Jamie Sullivan and Landon Carter this was true. She is very religious, sweet, and kind.
In my opinion, the movie was better than the novel, because the movie went deeper than what the book did. So, sometimes I fall in love with a sappy story. While performing a role in the drama, Jaime looks exotic in the white dress and the makeup she is wearing. But there are some guys who often ridicule her for all this. Landon: You don't care what people think about you? 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. While doing their inanities, one of their friends got hurt from jumping off from the cement apparatus. It was symbolic of how hormones were not the governing factor in their relationship.
He even swore that he had once been in love. My favourite part here is the part where Landon starts to change. So, free link sharing is not possible. And I don't often say this, but the movie was better. I wanted to like this book, since so many people I knew enjoyed it, but I ended up hating it.

Sparks believes that love has a great power in that it is able to make a young girl named Jamie Sullivan happy even though she was suffering with Leukemia and knew she was going to die soon. In 2012, Sparks and his publishing agent and creative partner Theresa Park, launched Nicholas Sparks Productions, with Park as President of Production. Because the Sparks family covers all operational expenses of the foundation, 100% of donations are devoted to programs. The play, written by Reverend Hegbert Sullivan, the minister of the church, tells the story of a man who is so grief-stricken over the death of his wife while giving birth to their only child that he is not much of a father to his child. I wanted to tell her my thoughts, but the sound of her voice suddenly silenced the emotions inside me. At first I was kind of reluctant to read it since the story is set in 1958 and I thought it was going to be slow and well, boring. Immediately after I was done reading the book and after I was done crying , I jumped on my computer, went on to Amazon and immediately bought this book, so I can read it again.
Sparks for teaching me a lesson that I'm sure others need to learn. But still pass by to have a quick fix for our hunger and we cannot deny that we like it. Jenkins office, the night we'd asked him about doing the play. A perfect thing to add up is that the perspective used in the story is from guy's character, considering that it gives perfect justice to how a guy thinks, utters, and acts. Fits the theme and book title perfectly. In 2009, the team he coached at New Bern High School set a World Junior Indoor Record in the 4 x400 meter, in New York.
The film takes place in 21'st century around 2000. Jamie is like a fairy. It changes the panorama of how we view the world say from dusky and smuggy to sunny, clear with pink-tinted gloss. My throat began to tighten again, but as I said, I knew what I had to do. Thank you for taking me to the dance. 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. We always see it our our way to work and we know that it is not healthy.
I am a sappy girl like that sometimes. I mean, the world is full of treachery and duplicitous people but here are Sparks' characters that are their total opposites. This was a very good book, and was the first and only book that made me cry in a long time. While, several parts of the story are inspired by some real life events. With some sweet characters it is a fun and easy read.
