Bok: "A Walk to Remember"

A Walk to Remember er blant dei mest kjente bøkene til Nicholas Sparks. Boka har eg faktisk lest før, fekk den i eit bind av De Beste-bøkene for eit par år sidan. Ein repetisjon på engelsk funker fint, men eg er glad det er ei stund sidan eg har sett filmen. Det er eit par ting som ikkje går overens mellom bok og film, men dei viktigaste tinga er der. Eg syns historien er nydelig, og uendelig trist når det går opp for Landon Carter at Jamie Sullivan kjeme ikkje til å vera der for alltid!

Baksidetekst: Landon Carter would never have dreamed of asking Jamie Sullivan out, but a twist of fate throws them together. In the months that follow, Landon breaks down Jamie's natural reserve and begins to get to know her - and to fall in love. But then he discovers that Jamie has a reason for not letting people close - a secret that will break his heart.

Frå Wikipedia: The novel was inspired by Sparks' sister, Danielle Sparks Lewis, who later died of cancer in June 2000. Although the story is largely fictional, certain parts were based on real experiences. For example, his sister's husband proposed marriage to her despite her sickness. After her death, Sparks said in his eulogy: "... I suppose I wrote this novel not only so you could get to know my sister, but so that you would know what a wonderful thing it was that her husband once did for her."

XOXO
