A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks
A Walk to Remember

EmmaCA17, March 21, 2013

A Walk to Remember is set in Beaufort, North Carolina in 1958. Jamie Sullivan is the daughter of a strict, old, minister, Hegbert Sullivan. Jamie is sweet, religious, and very charitable. On the other hand, theres Landon Carter. Landon is a rebellious teen who is very popular jock, and would never even be seen with anyone like Jamie. They have opposite titles when it comes to popularity, and theres no way that they could ever fall in love. But is there? Jamie and Landon both learn through trials and heartache, that love conquers all. People can change, and you should never judge someone before you get to know them. A Walk to Remember is the perfect book for a romantic. It is sweet, inspiring, and it portrays true love at its best.

Although, everything isn’t easy from when Landon and Jamie first meet. Landon’s disapproving friends, including Eric Hunter, judge Landon and make fun of Jamie because she is so charitable but completely oblivious to people around her. Their love is tested, and things would never be the same between them. This book explains, in my opinion, the perfect definition of love. “Love is patient and kind. It is never jealous, love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. Love never gives up, and never loses faith. It is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever.”(Sparks 102) This quote really stood out to me because this was the phrase from 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 that Jamie and Landon chose to represent their love. It had always been one of Jamie’s personal favorite verses, and it reminded her of her deceased mother as well.

I give this book a 10 out of 10! It really touched me. You will probably smile, and then you will cry throughout the novel. I think that it is amazing how many truths about life both characters learn. Each individual overcame an obstacle and changed their point of view in life. This book was sweet and very enjoyable. If you love inspirational stories and hopeful young love, you will enjoy the New York Times Bestselling author Nicholas Spark’s book, A Walk to Remember.
