Every April, when the wind blows from the sea and mingles with the scent of lilacs, Landon Carter remembers his last year at Beaufort High. 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 the 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 would never 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...

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I usually don't read chick lit or anything that doesn't have some fantasy part in it, really... I'm just not interested it reading about other people's problems if there isn't some fantasy involved.. Anyway, whatever my preferences for books are, nothing matters when I pick one of Nicholas Sparks' books. I forget that I don't like that genre or that I want evil creatures of the night lurking around. He creates a wonderful worlds in his books and they just suck you in and it's impossible not to like them. At least for me it is.
I started this book and then I realized that I've watched the movie to it(difference in the translation...) but it was already loved it too much to let go. I read it fairly slow because school was getting it the way but I loved it. It's one of those stories that make you want to cry yourself to sleep but it's so good you can't put it down.
The story is amazing. I just was moved by it and even if there are some not so good parts I can't bring myself to remember any.
Yeah I don't want to repeat myself any more so I'll say I loved it and leave it at that.
