In the fall of 1984, high-school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.
Now, 25 years later, Amanda and Dawson are summoned back to Oriental for a funeral. Neither has lived the life they imagined - and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever changed their lives. Forced to confront painful memories, the two former lovers soon realize that everything they thought they knew - about themselves and the dreams they held dear - was not as it seemed. And in the course of a single, searing weekend, they will ask of the living, and the dead: Can love truly rewrite the past?

The story was excellent and held my attention to the very end. I would have liked a happier ending, it is a very good read, and worth the money.
I liked the story but the thing that i can not get out of my mind is that i heard it somewhere. don't know if i dreamed it or it was in a movie but i know how it would end after the first few chapters. I could call out what was going to happen in the next few chapters before it even gave a hint to it. I think that is strange but over all I loved the book.
Once I started listening to this I could not stop...Once again MR Sparks hits a home run......I love this book
Nicolas Sparks has finally wooed me. He was able to capture the story and the characters to a point that it brought tears to my own eyes as i heard the ending. Finally a book that I can treasure. So similar to my own experiences in life of love and loss and growing in different paths, it was awesome to hear and experience. One of my favorite authors of all times. Great job.
I would like to make the ending less predictable.
For a self-proclaimed Christian, I find it just a little disturbing Nicholas likes to flirt with situations of infidelity on a seemingly increasing trend. With the ability to write a solid and wonderful novel such as “A Walk to Remember”, why does he insist on bringing that kind of darkness into his otherwise pleasant and insightful stories? It is not needed and for my money, I believe he paints a better picture without it.
Nicholas Sparks has hit the bullseye -- again. This is a heart-warming story that keeps you involved from beginning to end.
