My last reason for choosing the book over the movie is that in the book the ending gives you the best cliffhanger a book could give! They way Nicholas Sparks wrote A Walk To Remember was better than how the movie was directed. The book was more elaborate than the movie. There was so many good parts that were in the book that weren't included.
A Walk to Remember, in many ways, is a coming of age story.. This is why A Walk to Remember hits so close to home with me.. That said, those questions took a back seat to the overwhelming positivity I got out of A Walk to Remember.
