A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

I recently read "A Walk to Remember" by Nicholas Sparks. Here we go again. Yet another book that makes you decide your own ending. I spent a week of my life dedicated to finishing this book just to NOT find out whether or not Jamie dies. Is it a miracle that Landon fell in love with her at all or is it a miracle that she didn’t die? I don’t know, and apparently neither does Nicholas Sparks. He didn’t have the guts to "kill" Jamie so he wanted us to do it for him by assuming that’s what happened (Nicholas Sparks FAQ for A Walk to Remember)  Just for that, I think she lived. Despite the ending, it’s a very good book.  As it warns you in the beginning, you will cry.  Tell me your version, did Jamie live or die?

    I haven’t read this book but I recently read The Guardian also by Nicholas Sparks. It was a great read. It had a nice twist that I didn’t see coming. (I hate that I usually see what’s behind door #2 before it’s opened.) Anyway, if you’ve read it I can divulge more of my thoughts. If you haven’t I suggest you read it.

    My main complaint is that he spends a good amount of time letting you really get to know the characters in the beginning of the book. Then the last 100 or so pages, it was like he was just trying to tie the loose ends up so he’d be done with the book. I would have liked it better if he would have written a little more instead of just finishing it so quickly. I’m sure that this quick summary makes no sense. :)
