    Nicholas Sparks(Author)
Every so often a love story so captures our hearts that it becomes more than a story-it becomes an experience to remember forever. The Notebook is such a book. It is a celebration of how passion can be ageless and timeless, a tale that moves us to laughter and tears and makes us believe in true love all over again...
At thirty-one, Noah Calhoun, back in coastal North Carolina after World War II, is haunted by images of the girl he lost more than a decade earlier. At twenty-nine, socialite Allie Nelson is about to marry a wealthy lawyer, but she cannot stop thinking about the boy who long ago stole her heart. Thus begins the story of a love so enduring and deep it can turn tragedy into triumph, and may even have the power to create a miracle...

"Somewhere," muses Noah Calhoun, while sitting on his porch in the moonight, "there were people making love." Anyway, head elsewhere for Great Literature, but if you're in the market to get your heartstrings plucked, look no further. The Notebook, a Southern-fried story of love-lost-and-found-again, revolves around a single time-honored romantic dilemma: will beautiful Allison Nelson stay with Mr. Respectability (to whom she happens to be engaged), or will she hook up with Noah, the romantic rascal she left so many years ago? We're not telling, but you have two guesses and the first one doesn't count. Decades later, after Allison develops Alzheimer's, her beau uses "the notebook" to read her the story of the great love she's plumb forgot. The Notebook--film rights already sold, thank you very much--is a little glazed doughnut of a book: sticky- sweet, satisfying, not much nourishment. But who cares? Take an extra vitamin and indulge. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review Text

  • By Lindsay on 14 April 2017

    Watched the film several times and the book certainly didnt disappoint. So beautifully written. Very uplifting but terribly sad; not many books bring me to tears but i cried several times reading this. My first Nicolas Sparks, there will be many more.

    This is the first book I have read by Nicholas Sparks and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I watched the film years ago and loved it. It's safe to say I loved the book even more.The novel opens with Noah, an old man, reading to a woman, Allie, in a nursing home. He is reading a love story. As the story unfolds you find out more about both past and present.It's a beautiful story that you won't be able to put down. Highly recommended it!

    This story of love will make you lose yourself in its poetry. The llfe of two people having a summer romance to which they never forgot. To spending their whole lives together only to have it ripped apart by a life changing disease. I love the way the author portrays Noah's love for Allie and vice versa, it really is captured and makes you feel every feeling they both felt for each other, heart rendering at times.

  • By Stephanie C. on 1 September 2017

    Easy read but to be honest this is the first book I've read where the movie is so much better than the book.
