What I found interesting is that it was written from Landon's perspective. Very few romance novels that I've read have been from the male perspective, let alone someone like Landon. Nevertheless, the way that Sparks has portrayed Landon through the first person narrative allows the reader to see how Landon really feels rather than the way he acts outwardly. Jamie is a lovely character, the kind of person you'd want to have as a best friend, and by the end of the novel, Landon is the perfect gentleman.
There are no two people in a novel that I have ever wanted more to end up together. I admit I'd seen the movie before I read the book, so I already knew the story, but I knew the saying 'the book is always better than the film', so of course I had to read it too!

Catching Jordan. With that said, writing well remains difficult. It's easy to write something average, or even something good.
But writing well is quite challenging. Your novels are set in small North Carolina towns that figure prominently in the stories. Why have you chosen this bucolic setting for your stories? There are a few reasons I choose to set my novels in small North Carolina towns.
First, it's what I did when I first wrote The Notebook, and I've always believed that readers ought to have some idea of what to expect when they see one of my novels in the store. With that in mind, I've made the decision to adhere to three general truths when it comes to my novels: There will be a love-story element to the story, the novel will be set in eastern North Carolina, and the characters will be likeable. Then, I make each novel unique through differences in voice, perspective, age and personalities of the characters, and of course, plot.
Finally, I think that setting a novel in a small town taps into a sense of nostalgia among readers. We tend to believe life is different in small towns, and frankly, it is different.
The pace of life is slower, there's little traffic, people tend to know their neighbors; each town has its distinct idiosyncrasies and charms. What general themes, ideas, or impressions do you hope readers take away from your novels? Themes vary from novel to novel, but most deal with different aspects of love: everlasting love, first love, second chances at love, love and mystery, love and danger, and so on.
Themes provide the unwritten subtext of the novel. The subtext — what the author endeavors to show without explanation — gives the novel deeper meaning. It is also what generally separates good novels from great ones. Ideally, I try to write a novel that will be remembered forever. It's a lofty goal, but what's life without goals?
MFAs in creative writing are wildly popular these days, yet you did not choose to pursue formal schooling for your writing. How did you hone your craft when you were first starting out? Strangely, I didn't do much at all to hone it.
