A Walk to Forget
am 28. Dezember 1999
Ok, if you haven't figured out the formula yet, here it is. Boy meets girl, some conflict exists between them. The conflict is resolved, they fall hopelessly in love. Something happens, one of them dies, the other is left alone (somewhat more reflective, having loved and lost) at the end of the story. The result is tons of tears and a trip up the best-seller lists.
After Sparks stole the love-story genre with The Notebook, I thought more could be expected of him. Instead of challenging himself and the reader with the two books that followed (Message in a Bottle and A Walk to Remember), Sparks simply dusted off the old outline, changed the character names and resubmitted to the best-seller lists. Buried within this criticism is a nugget of praise for The Notebook which I felt was tightly crafted and a true love story. Although it is roughly the same size and written by the same author, A Walk to Remember is not in the same class.
