Message in a Bottle
Instead of going into a detailed review, I'd like to share with you an excerpt of an interview Nicholas Sparks did with the NY Times after writing this novel. He shares his inspiration but I ha ...more
I'm glad I didn't spend more money on it. What a disappointment. It dragged pretty much through the entire book & then BLAM, the end SUCKED so hard it just pissed me off & any good feelings I'd had from this book were quickly forgotten.
When Theresa Osborne takes a much-needed summer holiday at Cape Cod, she finds a lot more than a break from the hustle and bustle. On an early-morning jog along Cape Cod Bay, she comes across a corked bottle with a scrolled-up message inside that reads, "My Dearest Catherine, I miss you." Subsequent p ...more

DNF at about 60%.
If I remember correctly, it was one of my favorite books during that time. The book made me compelled to write a letter and throw it out to sea, which I never did.
It's a heartfelt story that should be read. However, it's not memorable because after all of these years, I am not interested in reading it again. It's a one-time-good-book read. If you like Sparks's writing, the ...more
1. I didn't really like this book as much as some of Sparks' other novels. I'm not sure why...
2. I would give this book three and a half stars, still, because it was still good.
3. One thing that really bugs me is that i almost feel like Sparks thinks he needs to write an explicit sex scene to sell something. Out of all his books that I know of, A Walk To Remember is his only one thr doesn't. ...more
I am a very emotional person and that emotion seems to be more readily let loose now that I admit to getting old. I have always been emotional and have never been shamed by letting others see that emot ...more
I can still remember how I passionately copy by hand and read over and over again the letters of Garrett to Catherine. As young as 13, I discovered my love of the written language through this unforgetta ...more
Una historia corta, pero con mucho contenido. Nicholas nos vuelve a cautivar con un amor entregado y apasionado, pero imposible. Dolorosa y maravillosa como solo Sparks lo puede hacer.
En esta nueva historia, (al menos para mí), se vuelve a repetir la historia de dos amantes, que se enamoran a primera vista, y su amor, aunque es apasionado y verdadero, es imposible. Como ya he dicho en todas mis opiniones de los libr ...more
Nema one prepoznatljive sladunjavosti,odbojnosti pa strasti..i na kraju,pisac je muškarac!
Vrlo lijepi opisi života pored oceana,lišeno uvijek naglašenog luksuza i ostalog prenemaganja, koje se danas obilno nude čitatelju ovog žanra..
Lijepa priča o izgubljenoj ljubavi,o izgubljenim prilikama i zanimljivo-bez klasičnog happy end-a!
Priča nam nudi i zan ...more
Kung nagustuhan mo ang The Notebook, magugustuhan mo din ang ikalawa nyang akda. Mula sa masayang wakas ng The Notebook ay binuksan ni Sparks ang trahedya sa ikalawa nyang akda.
Pareho lang ding elemento ang ginawa ni Nichlas sparks sa akda nyang ito at sa The notebook. Una ay ang kwento ng pag-ibig na nawala. Sinundan ng kamatayan ng bida. Naaalala ko b ...more
I kinda hate this book, but I tell you, this is a touching story. For me, this is the saddest of all the books of Sparks, so far.
An epitome of the world's greatest regret, letting go of someone even if you really love him/her.
Like what I said yesterday, it was hard for me to get in to the book at first but I soon completely fell in to it, holding on to the moments of bliss till the loneliest part of the book. There are a ...more
I have no idea how the movie is, but it must be far beyond the level of this book. But the ending is SOOOO damn sad. Seriously.
And because of that thing called my short-term memory span, I can't remember their names, so I'll just phrase it with pronouns. :D
So she finds a message in a bottle (thus the name) and falls in love with the way the man (OMG, I REMEMBERED HIS NAME, just now :P) writes and expresses his most definete t ...more
Why does an experienced, professional diver neglect to wear his effing life jacket on a journey that is known to be later than usual, with a storm that is known to be approaching?
How can Garrett write Catherine a line such as, "Before we came together, I moved through life without meaning, without reason. I know that somehow, every step I took since the moment I could walk was a step toward finding you." when they have known and loved each other since (at least) third grade?
While reading the book in my most-behave-and-holding-back-tears manner, I found its great preponderance on the last parts of the story. The first message was deeply doleful. It contained a full hint of longing and desiring to be with one's love again. Such a powerful epistle, in depth with emotions that will really trigger your lachrymal glands to weep. I was very eager to finish the book, cause aside from the fact that the reviews are boosting with accolade, I've been hearin ...more

This book didn't fail me, it made me cry an ocean of tears. I associated the story to my own love story. It happened during a year before my college graduation. I remember I even wrote about this on my journal. He didn't die but he went away for good and it took me so long to recover.I was left with "What ifs" and "If only's" but time heals everyt ...more
