    I love Nicholas Spark's books!! But usually they have REALLY sad endings like A Walk to Remember and A Message in a Bottle. I think that the stories are very well written. Is anyone else a fan of Nicholas Sparks books?

    i am! i loved a walk to remember, thankfully i read it before the movie came out, i was so sad that they took out the orphanage story and how she gave him her Bible. he is a great writer i also read a message in a bottle but nothing else of his,(there is atleast two more books to add to my to-read list of about two hundred!lol)

    I'm a huge fan of his! I love all of the books, I've read almost all of them. Even though, he hasn't written that many yet. Message in a Bottle was really sad, but my favorite was the Rescue. I definitely recommend that one to those of you who like Nicholas Sparks.

    My favorite book of his is A Bend in the Road, then the Rescue. I think he's a great writer! I can't wait to read all of his books.

    My lists of books to read never stops growing either! What kills me is when you look for a book at Amazon.com, it gives you a list of other similar authors & books, then I end up adding them to my list too!

    Don't you just love having long lists? The only one of his I didn't like, was the most recent one, Nights in Rodanthe (or somethin like that). I just couldn't relate to the story, they were too old.

    I liked it. It was more about an older couple (mid 40's-50's I think) so it's kinda hard to relate, but still I would read it!

    I've read The Notebook, A Walk To Remember (the movie was so disappointing compared to the book!), and Message in a Bottle.
    But I don't know... his writing style doesn't really strike my fancy much. I think I'm too jaded.

    A lot of his stories are depressing in the end, but I still think they are very well written!!

    i loved a walk to remember and message in a bottle is on my list! but i wish that the movie had been a bit more acurate... i m not saying i dont love it but i think that they left out and altered a few important parts!
