Years ago I watched the movie A Walk to Remember with some friends and I cried so much. It was so sad. I love this movie but it’s very sad. After I started reading and I read Sparks’ books too, I read this one and I liked it very much. 

I must say, I don’t like the book as much as I loved the movie, maybe it’s because I watched the movie years ago, several times before I read the actual book.

The story of the book is about two teenagers, Landon and Jamie. They are going to the same school but they’re very different from each other. Landon is a player and Jamie is a nice and quiet girl. They look like they don’t have anything in common. Landon was not at all attracted by Jamie but when they almost finish high school, he starts to see her kinda attractive.

Before the Christmas play at their school, Jamie asks Landon if he wants to play the role of the father and Landon agrees. They begin spending time together and start to have feelings for each other. 

Landon starts seeing the girl, starts seeing her character and loving her.

This was such a pretty love story, I was happy to read and watch the movie. I encourage you to do the same, if you want, of course, if you are into romantic movies and books.

“Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it.”

“Without suffering, there’d be no compassion.”

“I held her close to me with my eyes closed, wondering if anything in my life had ever been this perfect and knowing at the same time that it hadn’t. I was in love, and the feeling was even more wonderful than I ever imagined it could be.”

“I don’t think that we’re meant to understand it all the time. I think that sometimes we just have to have faith.”

“It wasn’t that long, and it certainly wasn’t the kind of kiss you see in movies these days, but it was wonderful in its own way, and all I can remember about the moment is that when our lips touched, I knew the memory would last forever.”

“Knowing there’s one thing I still haven’t told you: I now believe, by the way, that miracles can happen. ”

“First, you will smile, and then you will cry — don’t say you haven’t been warned.”

“There are moments when I wish I could roll back the clock and take all the sadness away, but I have the feeling that if I did, the joy would be gone as well.”
