Nicholas Sparks

Meaning of the Title
It refers first to the walk Jamie Sullivan makes down the aisle to marry Landon, in spite of the fact that she is so gravely
ill. With her own personal strength and the desire to fulfill her love, she makes the longest walk anyone could ever make. The title also refers to the metaphorical walk we all make trying to find the right way to live our lives.

Setting
Beaufort, North Carolina in 1958 and 1959.

Protagonist
Landon Carter, who comes of age under the influence of a strange, but wonderful young girl.

Antagonist
The greatest antagonist is Landonís inner being against which he fights to change and become a better person. Perhaps another antagonist could also be Death, the end we all must face, and because we face it, we must learn to live a worthwhile life.

Mood
At times, the mood is tragic, filled with despair, and very sad; at other times, it is uplifting and hopeful; finally, it is a triumphant commentary on the human spirit.

Point of View
First person (Landon is telling the reader the story of the events between him and Jamie Sullivan in Beaufort, North Carolina, in 1958 and 1959.)..........
