Summary

It was 1958, and Landon had already dated a girl or two. He even swore that he had once been in love. Certainly the last person in town he thought he'd fall for was Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town's Baptist minister. A quiet girl who always carried a Bible with her schoolbooks, Jamie seemed content living in a world apart from other teens. She took care of her widowed father, rescued hurt animals, and helped out at the local orphanage. No boy had ever asked her out. Landon never would have dreamed of it. Then a twist of fate made Jamie his partner for the homecoming dance, and Landon Carter's life would never be the same. Being with Jamie would show him the depths of the human heart and lead him to a decision so stunning it would send him irrevocably on the road to manhood.

The book is brilliant and there is no denying that Nicholas Sparks is an amazing author, I dont know a single one of his books that I have not fallen in love with, HOWEVER. his voice when reading the audio book I can certainly do without, if anything his voice put me off listening

I'm going to utter the words I thought I never would

The film was so much better than the book. The film worked on a melodramatic level - the book was just plain sappy and made me slightly nauseous ... It was just a little too formulaic and you could see the twist a mile off ...

A

This is one of the nicest stories that I have ever heard or read. The fact that the author read it made the story more enjoyable. He has a very pleasant, soothing voice. Usually biblical references in books are awkward for me. I am not of the same religious faith, nor am I religious at all. This story touched me in a way that very many others have not. It is not a demanding story on the listener/reader, but causes you to examine the way things happen and why.

A Great Book

I was a little scepticle about getting this book thinking it might be just a boring love story and drag out. Someone told me that it was good, so I decided to give it a shot and as it turns out it was one of the best books I've read (or heard). Great story about the human spirit and how things in life can change you forever. Get this one!!
