This is the tender story of a 40-yearold man looking back on his first--and possibly deepest--love. Told mainly from the point of view of 17-year-old Landon Carter, A WALK TO REMEMBER touches listeners with the bittersweet urgency of pure love and life's impermanence. Author and first-time reader Nicholas Sparks brings to his work an authentic resonance that may come from his being so invested in the text. His tone is even and almost effortless, particularly at the moments in the story when it's impossible not to get caught up in the action. Sparks manages to play tug-of-war with our heartstrings while maintaining a boyish innocence in his performance. R.A.P. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 00]
