PostSubject: "Message in a Bottle"   Fri Jan 19, 2007 10:05 am

I'm currently reading this book by Nicholas Sparks. I remember it was made into a movie a few years back, but I never saw it. I'm reading the book now and it's interesting, but I think, like most of Nicholas Sparks' books, they're wonderfully romantic and tend to get a little weepy in places. I think he's a fantastic writer though - very descriptive. I loved "The Notebook" and "A Walk to Remember", even though they made me cry my heart out LOL, and I'm about halfway through this book. My question is: has anyone seen the movie? I'm thinking of renting it after I finish the book. Also, I'm wondering how much it will differ from the book itself, since both "The Notebook" and "A Walk to Remember" differed a lot.

I really loved 'The Notebook'. I firs read the book so when I went to see it at the theater, I was looking for these scenes from the book... the movie was good but the book was better. Type

I'm actually glad I saw the movie of "The Notebook" before I read the book, b/c I'm sure if it was the other way around, I wouldn't have liked the movie! LOL. I feel that about all 3 Nicholas Sparks films - "Message...", "Notebook" and also "A Walk to Remember". I really feel that the characters and their relationships in the movies are underdeveloped. I guess there's a lot more you could do in a book than in a movie in those terms, but for "Message..." the changes were drastic! I think out of all 3, the "Notebook" comes closest to developing the close-knit character relationships that the book did (even though the ending was completel different! LOL). Wave

I just watched "Message in a Bottle." I did not like the ending. Who has seen this movie?? I don't want to give away the ending, but it should have ended better.

Yep, I've seen it Gin. Not a great ending....I didn't care for the movie at all actually. A great Nicholas Sparks based movie is "The Notebook". You'll cry your eyes out, but it was a beautiful movie, with great acting and a wonderful plot. Thumbsup

Well, I jumped to Fireproof last night. YOU need to see this. Its so good. The special features were as good as the movie. Kirk Cameron is such a special man to make the choices he has made and touched so many lives .
I really want Clay to see it too.... I think every couple should watch it, because we all have things we need to work on within our marriages.
I couldn't help but wish my parents could have had this tool when things were so bad for them--30 yrs ago. The LOVE DARE is certainly something to consider if you need a guide to get back on track.


Fife...I've been up 100hrs today...don't you dare pull that pistol on me tonight! LOL

Oh, good to know. I have heard good things about the movie, and the book, from others. I'll definitely check it out. And yeah, I've heard that whether your marriage is good or not, (and Bill and I are good Wink ), that this is the kind of movie that couples should watch together. It reminds me of "Marriage Encounter" in the Catholic church...people don't go to it necessarily because they're 'in trouble', rather it's a great reinforcer and strengthener within the marriage, no matter how 'stable' you think you are.
