One Comment to Sam

  1. Jack Weyland is the best selling author of young adult fiction for the Latter day Saint market In fact, the modern genre of Latter day Saint themed popular fiction is one he is largely responsible for creating with his overwhelmingly popular novel Charly His interest in fiction began with a correspondence course in creative writing taken during a summer at BYU where he was doing research work Since then he has published than two dozen books, and over fifty of his short stories have been published by the LDS Church magazine The New Era.Born in Butte, Montana, Jack received a B.S degree in physics from Montana State University and a Ph.D in physics from BYU Currently he teaches physics at BYU Idaho He formerly taught physics at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.Jack and his wife, Sheryl, are the parents of five children and have four grandchildren His hobbies include racquetball and singing.

  2. I don t really know that much of what s going on, but it s the sequil to charly by jack weyland, and in this book, his parents are trying to find him a new wife, and he doesn t seem at all interested until he meets this really nice girl He has a six month year old son named adam I think I haven t finished reading it so I don t know much about it But that s why I am reading it, so I can learn about it But I can tell you I im really interested in it.

  3. This book was almost unbearable It is so chauvinistic that it is on equal footing with Helen Andelin s Fascinating Womanhood I would give examples, but really, it s on nearly every page I may have given the book 5 stars if he had died in the end.

  4. I saw the Charley movie and read the book probably over ten years ago and liked it I don t know if I read Charley now if I would like it I have my doubts because I just read the follow up book from Charley, Sam The book was as corny as they come and it seemed there were some innuendos of how a mother should not work outside of the home and make sure not to drink caffeine, etc.

  5. The book Sam the sequel to Charly by Jack Weyland is outstanding The plot commences as Sam, a new widower, struggles to cope with the idea of having to be alone for the remainder of his and his son s lives With everyone badgering him to move on, he only finds his loss difficult to bare To convince everybody that he has let things go, he decides to seek out a wife, even if he s not ready to love someone her I found this book quite gripping Though it isn t a very short book, I had no trouble gett [...]

  6. Sam by Jack Weyland, is the wonderful sequel to the book Charly After Sam s wife, Charly, dies due to cancer, he adventures out to find another woman to love After going on a few dates with a few different women, he eventually discovers who he thinks could be the one Is she really the one or will Sam have to keep searching for the right girl I enjoyed this book a lot It was fun to read but it didn t always have me interested I loved how Sam didn t give up on finding another wife, but it wasn t a [...]

  7. The book Sam by Jack Weyland Is Great Its about a guy named sam who lost his wife Charly due to cancer He is trying to date again and find another spouse to spend eternal life with him and his son Adam He goes through a few women and then he finally finds the one Then it just tells about there story together I really liked this book, but not as much as Charly I liked how he is such a turkey, and they both just kinda mess with each other Its too cute I didn t like how It was not charley with him [...]

  8. This book is about a guy named Sam and his wife has passed away He has a son, Adam He is still really little, so Sam lives at his parents house so they can help Sam take care of Adam Sam can t get over the loss of his wife so he is pretty depressed Later in his church they have a single group club He attends Because he has been on s many dates to find a good mother for Adam At the single group club he meets Laura who just got back from her mission in New Mexico They go on dates and soon decide t [...]

  9. Less enchanted with this book as I was with Charly I don t think the message was as powerful only because Jack s fan base is feminine than masculine and the message is designed for male domination pride Yes, there is the message for the female and the modern day acceptance that she can also be a successful member of the working community, but I didn t feel that the focus was as much there as with the first message The other reason I was so disenchanted was that Mr Weyland s ability to different [...]

  10. In the book Sam its about a father named Sam and his little boy named Adam Sam s wife died and he doesn t know if he should remarry or not He trys to find his answer He felt that he can remarry but Charly his wife that died, would have to approve At first he trys to find someone that is just like Charly After time went on he decided his new wife didn t need to be just like Charly When he starts dating he had some problems finding out what he wanted his new wife to be like He really wanted her an [...]

  11. I was trying to decide if this one was worse or better than Charly, but realized that it s about the same They had the same humor, sorrow, angst, and they came out about equal.This book takes place 5 weeks after the last book Adam has moved back Salt Lake City with his parents and it s not going well with him Despite Charly s last requests, he works his night away making model airplanes and crashing them It s a bleak beginning It does get better, however, and it becomes wonderful.What a ride fal [...]

  12. I read this book as a teenager in the 70 s This is my first re read Thirty five years have made a BIG difference in the LDS conversation about a woman s role in marriage Yikes I was turned off by Sam s difficulties dating a girl who might be smarter than him, then earned money than him But I had an even difficult time stomaching the husband ruling over the wife, the wife follows her husband rather than having her own relationship with God , and the husband presides as the president of the fami [...]

  13. After the death of his wife Charly, Sam is trying to find out what is next with his life He sruggled to find love again With a 2 year old son he thinks that he will never find love He was called to be on the young single adult committe He soon came to love this calling They started to do a clown act for all the childern in the hospital He loved doing that One night he was off the a young single adult meeting When he got there he saw a new person Her name was Lara During the meeting Lara introduc [...]

  14. This book was extremely lame compared to Charly Although I like a lot of the meanings behind Jack Weyland s book, I find his writing style to be poor and rather boring, even so in Sam Sam was such a big jerk in this particular novel and bothered me a lot through out the book, as he also did in the first novel Although I understand that he is bitter after Charly s death, I think it was a bit unrealistic for him to blatantly say rude things to some of the women he dated, in search of a wife Somet [...]

  15. This is the second book of the series and for many years the final part of the story It was the happy ending, that came after the tragedy of the first book Everything tied up all nice and neat probably too neat which is why Mr Weyland revisited the series recently with the final book in the now 3 book series I think now that I m not 16 it rings way too neat and tidy There is always collateral damage when someone dies especially a parent I m glad Mr Weyland revisited the series with Adam Love doe [...]

  16. After losing his wife Charley to death Sam is left with his little son Adam Adam needs a mom and Sam wants to remarry but does not know at the same time and that chary will approve of he is put in the single adults and find the one Lara.I thought it was a good book it go with Charley I really liked Charley and so this was good liked it because it was happy but at the same time a sad book, it made me happy that he still loves Charley and that he found someone else, but it make me sad that he real [...]

  17. Sequel to Charly, also by Jack Weyland While both are a bit lightweight, I enjoyed both Sam was, to me, a bit enjoyable After Charly s death due to cancer, Sam struggles for awhile and then meets his soon to be second wife What ensues are the very typical, often funny, and occasionally tense adjustments whenever two people are married and must learn to build a new life together Weyland is in typical form hereif you like his other books, you will like this one if not, you won t.

  18. I still thought this was a decent book but after Charly, it was really hard to get into it I immediately fell in love with Charly and loved all of her antics Lara was a complete opposite and Sam couldn t seem to get it together in this book so that was a little frustrating Can t say it s not what I wouldn t do if I lost my spouse but it was too much back and forth emotionally for me Will still read other Jack Weyland books though.

  19. This book was one where you could just not stop reading Sam is struggling to move on with life after his wife dies of cancer and leaves him with a little boy Sam doesn t want him to grow up without a mother, so after a little while he got back up on his feet and started dating again after several dates with nice but not what he was looking for girls, he found this one girl who stood out to Sam I would recommend this book to others if your looking for real life stories.

  20. I didn t like this one as well as I liked Charly Mostly because I didn t feel like Sam was a very good father At one point in the book I felt like he was almost abusive I guess that part in the book was supposed to be funny and maybe I m blowing it out of proportion but I thought that Mr Weyland had taken it just a little to far in this one.

  21. Nice sequel to Charly A book about second chances and just moving forward when life has let you down The subject matter was heavy, but the dialog was mostly light and witty I loved Sam and could always see where he was coming from It s always fun for me to read a book with love as a main component that s been written by a man It s so enlightening

  22. This book is a wonderful novel of a widowed fathers life Jack Weyland keeps your interest by adding twists and turns to the story even a new girl but she could never replace charlie could she Find out WARNING i thought that it would be fairly lond and was dissapointed when it was nearly one hundred pages ugh

  23. Similar book to Charly It is the continuing story It was good book but once again very light and cheezy I wish Sam would have talked about raising his little boy all by himself I felt like the little boy was not very much of the conversation But I liked the love story Sam finds someone very different than Charly, perfectionist, organized, healthy eater etc.

  24. I felt the same way about this book as I did the first Very short, underdeveloped, and I still think the main character had some sort of a mental issue Sam was much stranger in this book than he was in the first I understand that Charlie s death has taken a toll on him, but he just went off the deep end of craziness.

  25. Re read this after 25 years Still a wonderful story with a nice ending It s a little hard at times to determine if the characters are serious or teasing in their conversations with each other, but truly a feel good book with some fun twists Of course, one can t read this until you ve read Charly, but neither book is long or difficult reading, so there s no excuse to not give it a try.

  26. Those who read Charly will definitely want to read this novel and find out what happens to Sam, Charly s husband How does he cope with being a single father How does he come to terms with re entry into the single life pressures of family and church Find out in this gripping novel.

  27. I read this years and years ago and bawled my stinking eyes out And that s really all I can remember about it I don t think I could handle it now that I am a mom.A very heart wrenching but well written story.

  28. This is the sequel to Charly.Sam is sad, as you remember Sam s loss, yet romantic as he gets married to a girl names Laura And Sam s son Adam gets into his terrible twos The whole book is facinating, and romantic.

  29. It was really good and i liked it but it was say because Charly and Lara are so different It doesn t really mention Adam enough to know how he feels, even though he s a todler I really liked it but i liked Charly better.

  30. Much intersting than Charly although you may need that to get insight into his thoughts Maybe just applicable as an adult Somehow I liked that his second marriage wasn t just perfect like he thought his first was Makes us all realize we have different weaknesses to work on.

  31. Oh my gosh This book was great It is a must read for those who want to find out what happened to Sam Read it It was a great book I also cried during this book It is an easy read, so be prepared to stay up all night.
