      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.

      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. ;)

      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.

      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 more 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 [...]

      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 anothe [...]

      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 [...]

      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 [...]

      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 more 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 d [...]

      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 [...]

      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 rid [...]

      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 more money than him. But I had an even more 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 pr [...]

      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 Lar [...]

    13. Olivia Parsons on said:

      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 more 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 wif [...]

    14. Melanie Cannon on said:

      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 wi [...]

      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 re [...]

      Sequel to Charly, also by Jack Weyland. While both are a bit lightweight, I enjoyed both. Sam was, to me, a bit more 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.

    17. Heidi on said:

      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.

    18. Brooklyn J. on said:

      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.

    19. Annette on said:

      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.

    20. Brenda on said:

      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

    21. m0rGan on said:

      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

    22. Jessie on said:

      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 more 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.

    23. Camille on said:

      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.

    24. Jim on said:

      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.

    25. Sandy on said:

      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.

    26. Heather on said:

      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.

    27. Alysha Speer on said:

      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.

    28. Emmeli on said:

      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.

    29. Polly on said:

      Much more intersting than Charly - although you may need that to get insight into his thoughts. Maybe just more 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.

    30. Tiffany on said:

      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.
