Rediscover the unforgettable, heart-wrenching romance set in post-World War II North Carolina, about a young socialite who can't forget the boy who once stole her heart--now one of PBS's Top 100 "Great American Reads."

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. Every April, when the wind smells of both the sea and lilacs, Landon Carter remembers 1958, his last year at Beaufort High.

Fell in love with the movie years ago. I don't much do romance novels anymore - at least not these sacchrine kind, but I love the relationship devotion over the years, and that this was not just about. young love," but a couple who weathered the times and still loved each other despite heartache and illness. It is a heart warming good story, told briliantly.

Not being inexperienced in the reading of Nicholas Sparks novels, I somewhat knew this book would contain tons and tons of corny and cheesy replies and gestures. I’m not one to discard the idea of soul mates, after all the young adult readings that I have done, but when something is too wonderful and perfect, it’s more annoying than cute.

The Notebook was my first read by Nicholas Sparks and certainly won't be my last. It was also his debut novel and very impressive for a first effort. The opening chapter and the latter part of the book with the elderly couple is written in first person, present tense which was beautifully rendered, giving these parts a deep sense of immediacy. Noah and Allie's story in the past is written in third person, past tense. This part was wonderful too, but I did have a small problem with the second chapter.

An epic of treacle, an ocean of tears, made possible by a perfect, ideal, unalloyed absence of humor. Destined, positively, for success. Booklist - Joanne Wilkinson.

Talk about The Notebook

Okay, so when this book was recommended to me, I'll admit I was apprehensive. Huge mistake. I'm a huge reader, and it's hard for me to take longer than 1 week to read a book. So, you can imagine how hard it is to pick a FAVORITE. Not in this case. The notebook is one of my favourite books of all time. You feel transported into this magical world as Noah reads his journal to his dear wife to try to get her to remember him (I won't give any spoilers). As a writer myself, Nicolas Sparks has given me skills and tools I never knew before. All in all, you really should read this book if you are looking for a good romance that keeps you on edge.

I would recommend this book for ages 13 and up, for there are some scenes which may not be sutible for younger children. Also, this book was made into an amazing movie.

On a side note, if you enjoy this book, continue the story by reading The Wedding, the fabulous sequel to The Notebook.
I wanted to read a romance. And The Notebook, a romantic novella so famous it is an Internet meme for romance and gender politics, was 1.99 on Kindle.

There’s a lot to like about The Notebook. It portrays a universe that we don’t actually live in, a faith, a worldview, a set of beliefs—and you can let yourself believe it for a while. It declares that nostalgia, cliche, and life lived as a summary, with a soft lens filter, is the best kind of life.

I don’t agree. I think life is actually much, much better than how it is depicted in The Notebook. Life is far more vibrant, with hot sauce and meaningless moments and the prickle of seal whiskers. The Notebook universe only has room for summary, cliche, and edges so rounded they aren’t edges anymore. There are no scenes in the Notebook, just a series of memories.

Still, I read the whole thing, and cried at least once. So there you go. If you want to sing and pray in that church, you can. You don’t have to be a believer. It’s available.
In so many ways this is my parents life. My Mom had Alzheimer's Disease and had to be put in a Nursing Home, but my Dad lives with my sister and he went to the Nursing Home every night for the past 11 years. He would spend time with her, feed her ice cream, help to bathe her and get her ready for bed. He would cover her in a quilt and whisper sweet somethings to her, told her he loved her, said goodnight and God Bless you. On November 8th, 2013, she passed away. The day of her Service before they closed the casket, my Dad tucked her in one last time. They both were 90 years old and both never dated anyone but each other. What an inspiration, honourable, devoted and loving parents we have. NICHOLAS SPARKS this book is phenomenal!!! Breathtaking story!

I liked the book as much as the movie it gave more vivid details of their story how they found out about Allie’s illness and touched a bit on the children they had. It almost made you want more information like their was a true history behind the characters like they were real life people. I am about to read The Wedding and hope that I find it just as intriguing. Nicholas Sparks is a fantastic writer and I was sad to hear that there will not be anymore screen adaptations of his novels .
In his first published novel Nicholas Sparks shows us his understanding about love and relationships and how they can endure across the years. It is a very emotional and touching book. Some of us are lucky enough to have a perfect soul-mate - Noah found his early on just before WWII and she walked out of his life.

One fateful summer two teenagers, Noah and Allie, find that they share the same world and fall in love. Noah's father has given him a life-long love of poetry which he shares with her. Allie has artistic skills and she shares her ambition with him that she wants to follow these skills wherever they take her.

Allie's parents don't approve of her relationship with Noah as he doesn't have the education, money or social position to be suitable for their daughter. They move away and there are no replies to Noah's many letters.

Roll forward 14 years and Noah has returned home after a gruelling war. He has never forgotten his first love and loses himself in poetry and the physical task of restoring a lovely antebellum mansion in New Bern. One of Allie's paintings has pride of place in the restored home but otherwise the beautifully restored house seems empty.

Allie's life seems perfect - she has followed her parents' wishes, given up her art and is now about to make a perfect marriage to a kind, hard-working, rich and ambitious man. Her world changes when she learns about Noah's restoration work in a newspaper. Three weeks before her society wedding she finds herself driving to New Bern to find Noah for reasons she herself does not fully understand. The unexpected reunion is very emotional and shows the writing skills that have made Sparks a best-selling author in this genre.

The closing chapters skip to a geriatric nursing home. They are well written but left me emotionally disturbed as I am already over my allotted time of "three score years and ten".
