I've been in love with this movie since I saw it. I had always wanted to read the book but never got around to it. I finally had the opportunity to read the book and decided to.
While reading the book, I kept on comparing it to the movie - one of the downfalls of seeing the movie first. Although there are differences, the book was equally amazing.
The story begins with Landon Carter in 1998 reminiscing about his best and most memorable year in 1958. He takes us on a journey of his senior year, where he finds himself, friends the sweet girl that no one really likes, finds his faith, and finds love. It's a great little story that pulls at your heart strings.
