A Weekend to Remember....

Hie guys, how are you all doing..?? I hope u had a lovely weekend... :)

For me it was definitely a "Weekend to Remember" as I snuggled up on my bed, by the window, on the rainy afternoon with a book that I long, long, long awaited to read.."A Walk to Remember...."

Though I wanted to read the book since about a year, I could not find it until lately & when I found it, it took me just a couple of days to travel through the world & lives of Landon & Jamie....

The story set in the mid-1900's, is not just another love story, but is sure to leave its readers with memories of a lifetime. The characters make a warm place in your heart for themselves, be it the carefree Landon, hanging all day long with friends or the simple & cheerful Jamie. The flow of events is so smooth & is so beautifully expressed that you can actually visualize Landon & Jamie going in for the homecoming dance or walking down the roads of Beaufort after rehearsals. It just leaves you with a feeling that is like wind- "You can't see it or describe it but just feel it..."

As it is narrated in the first person, at times while reading, we feel that the story is about us & that exactly is what I loved the most... Even the end was open for readers to interpret it in their own ways, I would prefer to take it in a positive way, hoping that a miracle did take place in their lives wherein Jamie & Landon lived happily....

Now my weekend didn't end there.......

I even watched the movie adapted from the book. It was different in many ways from the book. It just had the outline of the book & the rest of the setting & background was different. The book & the movie should not be compared is what I learned after I saw the movie. Each had its own beauty & identity.But the combination of the book & movie truly made it "A Weekend to Remember" for me.
