A Walk to Remember
Popular Answered Questions
the struggle of jamie and langdon for their love over death...sounds cliche, but i think the book is the second best romance story next to Love Story by Erich Segal.
try to read it at 2 am in the morning when all you hear is silent and you'll get into the story until you burst into tears...
I was pretty unsure about this book at first, and when I was told by a friend to read a Sparks book, absolutely any of my choosing, I didn’t really want to. But, despite not wanting to read I book by him, because I was being stubborn and thought I would absolutely hate it, I went on my library’s w ...more
It was late afternoon
It lasted forever
And ended too soon. CRY, Mandy Moore
The song Cry, perfectly describes A Walk To Remember. It was short, but it would definitely be etched in my cranium for forever.
Who wouldn’t know Landon Carter and Jamie Sullivan? In the movie, they were cast as Mandy Moore and Shane West.
I remember it being a hit when I was in high school years ago. I watched the movie and loved it. I knew there was a book, but I only had a chance to ...more
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 ...more
Romance is the least among the genres that I craved to try. Instead, I stumbled upon reading this love story book. A risk indeed to read a different genre especially when it exempts among the genres you always thinks about. Thus, it doesn't just take twenty gulps to risk for it but takes time and sweat to decide the dilemma whether to give it a shot or not. Lately, I decided to widen my braced genres and I thought this book is worth the risk to ...more
I still love it as much as I remember. Yes, its different than the movie, and I watched the movie first, many years ago...but the book is great, and its probably my favorite Sparks book to date.

'It was, I remembered thinking, the most difficult walk anyone ever had to make.
In every way, a walk to remember.'
If I was to shorten the story in one sentence, I'd say A Walk to Remember is the story of bad boy Landon falling in love with sweet and innocent Jamie.
The writing was easy and the plot wasn't too complicated. Some things were also a tad bit cliché but I don't think that anything will ever be new in romance novels anymore.
At first, Landon's character really pissed me off but he g ...more

I particularly love the stark contrast between Landon, the bad boy gone good, and Jamie, the devout Christian girl who is everything nice on the surface and with closer inspection, a strong character whom I f ...more

And I don't often say this, but the movie was better. I loved this book, and it had many wonderful elements that the movie lacked, but somehow it didn't come get me the way the movie never fails to do. I never cry at movies, as in never (ask Becca - she'll gladly give you a ready confirmation!), but A Walk to Remember usually makes me tear up a few times.
I've seen it countless times and love it so much that I thought it was finally time to give the boo ...more

why are nicolous sparks endings so perfect??! he's the king at writing them. I want to cry. I did feel like there should have been more development in their relationship I felt a little bit like insta-love. I also dislike how he left out his friends and school in the second half of the book when the was a big part in the first. it felt unnatural because we didn't know wha ...more
A Walk to Remember whether it’s the book or the movie remained as a main stream topic throughout a decade and the reason is obvious. This book stole the hearts of a billion hopeless romantics around the world, mine included.
Recalling how the story went feels like reopening a close wound. I still remember how I sobbed my eyes out for this book. Jamie is such a beautiful person inside and out and the fact that she changed Lan ...more
