Compelling Reading, Book Review 2


Recently, I'm really crazy about reading novels after like stopping for almost one year. As I said I'm crazy about novels now, I could almost finish one novel everyday and the next morning, I'll go UTAR library and borrow another one! *sweat*

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks is a heartwarming, moving and bittersweet love story. At first, it really challenged my patience as the opening was rather boring, and I put it aside. Later I picked it up as to give Sparks a second chance, and I found myself totally immersed in the tender love story between Landon and Jamie (the male and female main character respectively).

Though there is no flowery language nor bombastic words used, Sparks captivates you with the simple yet impressive storyline. I would say I'll never forget this story "A Walk to Remember"....

Below is the passage from Corinthians that Jamie liked and I find myself like it not less than Jamie:

Love is always patient and kind.
It is never jeolous. Love is never boastful or conceited.
It is never rude or selfish.
It does not take offense and is not resentful.
Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins,
but delights in the truth.
It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope,
and to endure whatever comes.
