A Walk to Remember embraced me with its warmness. Jamie, one of the main heroes, was so naive, kind and patient that sometimes I doubted existence of such people in our world. Nevertheless, such people do exist. And they enlighten our world with their selfless deeds, which is what Jamie did. It was interesting to read how people who had thought her to be strange, not only changed their mind, but also changed themselves under her influence.

This book is similar with "Before I Die" in its topic. But it is much better for me. It makes to think about people, to show compassion, to get rid of stereotypes. ( )

Definitely better than the movie, which I wasn't expecting because it's not my favorite genre to read. ( )

Nicholas Sparks has done it again. I've only read two of his books, but both of them broke my heart. I faintly remember watching the film with my mom when I was little, so I really wanted to read the book. I knew it would be an emotional ride, but I still wasn't expecting to cry as much as I did.

Landon was frustrating at first. I hated how unnecessarily mean he was to Jamie, and he just felt like a bland character. However, as he started falling in love with her, he became less obnoxious to me. He could still be cruel, but it didn't happen nearly as often as it had in the beginning.

Throughout the entire novel, I loved Jamie. She was such a strong character, which I think is always important. She went through hell, and despite it all, she stayed positive. I can't even imagine going through half of what she dealt with, let alone all of it simultaneously.

I love that Nicholas wrote it from Landon's perspective. To me, that gives the story more depth and makes it more enjoyable. It added to the general emotions of the story and made it overall more heartbreaking.

I don't think I have any complaints about this book. It was brilliantly written, and it sucked me in from the first page. It was the perfect mix of romantic and sad. If you haven't read this book yet and want to read something that'll put you on an emotional roller-coaster, I highly recommend you read this book. Even if you've already read it, I still recommend it. ( )
