Liked it.
A Walk to Remember - Nicholas Sparks

*3.5 STARS*

 

I liked this one.  I liked it more than I liked the movie I think except for one thing.  I felt like the main characters Jamie and Landon had more of a connection in the movie.  I just didn't see that as much in the book.   I did feel more hopeful at the end of the book than I did in the movie, however, I was still bawling my eyes out.

Three Weeks With My Brother by Nicholas Sparks, Micah Sparks
Three Weeks With My Brother - Nicholas Sparks,Micah Sparks

I'm not really a fan of non-fiction, except for the occasional tome of scientific literature, but I must admit, I liked this one...Much better than Mr Sparks' romance novels, actually.

It recounts a trip around the globe (oh, to be able to do that money- and time-wise) with his brother interwoven with stories about their childhood and family life.
Yes, it was the trip around the world that sold me onto this book, but the rest was (surprisingly) just as fascinating.

The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
The Notebook - Nicholas Sparks

I have to agree with (some) other reviewers about this book...I actually enjoyed the movie more. Noah and Allie in the movie had a very passionate chemistry, and an almost palpable connection that was somehow absent in the book...And I’m also one of those who prefer the movie’s ending to the book.

Also the constant jumps back-and-forth in the timeline, and switches in narrative POV were rather bothersome and slightly distracting at times.

Still, a nice book, well-written, rather cheesy and sappy, and...Yeah, I figured out that’s what a Sparks novel (or movie) is all about.

The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks
The Lucky One - Nicholas Sparks

Having seen the movie, and actually liked it despite its cheesiness, I decided to read the book the movie was based on. Turned out the movie creators took a few liberties, but still…

It was an enjoyable book. Well-written, rather well-paced despite its many points of view, and with nicely-plotted, fleshed-out characters.
I actually ended up liking the book more than the movie, with its suspense plot much more prominent, and rather gripping, even though I knew, having seen the movie, how it all ended. And yeah, although this is supposed to be a romance, it was rather light on that particular subject, which actually worked quite well for me.

I liked how the story was fleshed-out, “existing” outside of the requisite romance.

Life, he realize, was much like a song. In the beginning there is mystery, in the end there is confirmation, but it's in the middle where all the emotion resides to make the whole thing worthwhile.
