I haven't read a Nicholas Sparks book I didn't like. This tale of a small town romance and subsequent heartbreak (but not what you would expect) is a great, quick read.

Another "marvelous" novel from Nicholas Sparks about young love surviving trials. A short read, hard to put down, and flows excellently.
Five out of five!

This book showcases two very different characters who fall in love with each other unexpectedly. Has a young and innocent feel and a very surprising turn. Most likely to make you cry like a baby. Such a wonderful book by a wonderful author.

Yet another great feel-good book by Nicholas Sparks. This has some similarities to the movie and is very well written. It makes you truly admire the love that this young couple feels for each other.

This is one story that I can honestly say was a better movie than it was a book. I think the movie showed the emotions, the revelations and evolution of the relationship as well as the enduring love better or at least as well as the book. The book was a quick read and I read it after watching the movie, which is one of my favorites. I was very disappointed that the book did not develop characters and the relationship in more depth. That being said, I still respect the heart of the story and agree that it is an inspiring tear-jerker that shows us the inside of a young boy's heart and of true love.

Incredibly moving story - that makes you grab your box of tissues. Well written and recommended.

Good book, easy reading. You can sort of figure out the plot before the end of the book. For those of you that like a good "cry" book, you'll love this one! Not of the same outstanding caliber of work like the Message In a Bottle, or even more so The Notebook!
Good reading nonetheless!

Another great book from Nicholas Sparks.

and I kept hoping it would get better. I'd read THE NOTEBOOK and Loved it! This story is not nearly as good. I believe perhaps you just have to be a teeny bopper to enjoy this one. Maybe I was just in a rotten mood. You read and and see what you think. It's definitely NOT his best.

I love this book and at the end, I had tears in my eyes. This book showed so much. It is by far my favorite book. I belive Nicholas Sparks worte this book to many young people showing them they can get through a heartbreak when instead you could be going through a heartache. I absolutly loved this book and I beleive everyone should read it.

Landon Carter is now 57 years old and he is telling his love story from when he was a senior in high school. He still remembers the events of something that he thought was just a friendship as if it was yesterday.

Jamie Sullivan was a minister's daughter, who wore boring brown sweaters every day, always tied her hair up in a bun, and always had her Bible with her. She is the girl that you would think of when you would imagine the person who gets made fun of in high school. She had never been on a date in her life, and Landon was one of the more popular boys in his high school.

Landon didn't have a date for homecoming, so he decided that he would ask Jamie because she was too sweet to say no and wouldn't have a date yet. When he asked, she said "promise me that you won't fall in love with me."

After a horrible night at homecoming, Jamie asked Landon to play the male lead in an upcoming Christmas play that was performed every year, and was a very big deal in the town. Landon didn't really want to, but Jamie talked him into it because she was playing the lead female and her father had written the play -- and Jamie wanted the play to be very special. After about two months of constant rehearsals, the play was performed and the town knew that this had been the best year ever. And Landon had to admit that it went well, and that he was falling in love with dorky Jamie. But there is a secret that Jamie was hiding from Landon. What could it possibly be? And why did she tell Landon not to fall in love with her?

This is another powerful love story from an author that makes you believe in love. Read this amazing novel to find out the secrets of Landon and Jamie.

Nicholas Sparks seldom disappoints, and this book is no exception. More wonderful than the movie, this books is a wonderful, romantic story...

Unexpected in a very good way, but also sad or bittersweet
About the author: Nicholas Sparks is one of my favorite authors: one can count on him to deliver a great story along the lines of a Hallmark movie, consistently good, enjoyable and fun. The only drawback to his books is that they are very much along the lines of boy meets girl, girl doesn't like boy, and boy overcomes girl's concerns. So read his books with time between them, and they won't run together.

Do you need to read in order? Each book (so far) stands on its own so you can read them in any order

Triggers: bullying of school kids, cancer, illness, major character death

A fantastic story about a couple of high school kids, who didn't like each other very much at the beginning and their very unlikely love in a small North Carolina town back in 1958. If it doesn't make your eyes water at least just a little bit, you have no emotions.

Clearly a winner. While it has some things in common with the movie, don't expect to read what you saw. Some things are different; mainly the setting.
