A man with a faded, well-worn notebook open in his lap. A woman experiencing a morning ritual she doesn't understand. Until he begins to read to her. The Notebook is an achingly tender story about the enduring power of love, a story of miracles that will stay with you forever.

Set amid the austere beauty of coastal North Carolina in 1946, The Notebook begins with the story of Noah Calhoun, a rural Southerner returned home from World War II. Noah, thirty-one, is restoring a plantation home to its former glory, and he is haunted by images of the beautiful girl he met fourteen years earlier, a girl he loved like no other. Unable to find her, yet unwilling to forget the summer they spent together, Noah is content to live with only memories...until she unexpectedly returns to his town to see him once again.

Allie Nelson, twenty-nine, is now engaged to another man, but realizes that the original passion she felt for Noah has not dimmed with the passage of time. Still, the obstacles that once ended their previous relationship remain, and the gulf between their worlds is too vast to ignore. With her impending marriage only weeks away, Allie is forced to confront her hopes and dreams for the future, a future that only she can shape. 


No matter how many times I read this story, I fall in love with Allie and Noah’s story every time. To me, THE NOTEBOOK is one of most romantic, beautiful love stories. Of course NICHOLAS SPARKS has a way to suck you into the story and I feel that no matter what type of story that he writes, you end up falling in love with it. At least that how it has been for me. Last time that I read THE NOTEBOOK have been years, I believe that I was still in high school. I saw the movie before I read the book. I tend to love book more that movie, in this case I loved them both. They were different but in good way. Reminds me why NICHOLAS SPARKS has been my favorite author for years. After re-reading THE NOTEBOOK I can tell how much his writing has changed through years, and that doesn’t change how much I love his writing. I am not sure how he does it, but he seems to find a way to get you fall in love with story after only few pages. THE NOTEBOOK wasn’t any different, I was hooked from the first page until last and afterwards I wanted to re -read it again.

I felt bad for Allie’s fiancĂ©e, I knew that he loved her even if Noah wasn’t sure he did. Considering how he reacted to news, I knew that he had. I couldn’t even imagine what he was going through, what he was feeling when Allie told him that she was staying. Even though that was what I hoped would happen. I wanted for Noah and Allie find their way back to one another. From a moment that Allie returned, and her and Noah reunited, I could see the love, the desire and the connection between the two of them. It’s impossible to not see, that after all these years, the two of them still loved each other. I feel as if it never stopped, that even though Allie loved Lon in her own way, that love wasn’t the love that she felt for Noah. Reading it, I could actually find myself the emotions that were going through them. Happiness, confusion, love and hope. The love between the two of them, that is what true love should be like. The scenes between Noah and Allie, it had me smiling. I wanted for Allie to choose Noah. He’s the one that Allie belonged with.

The descriptions, the emotions were beautiful in this story. I could feel, imagine everything while I read the book. I felt inspired afterwards. THE NOTEBOOK is a beautiful, heartbreaking, thrilling story about first love and second chances. You can’t help but fall in love with it. I know for fact that NICHOLAS SPARKS will be my favorite romance writer for years to come. I can’t wait to see what other books he writes in future. I am always looking forward to his new stories.
