*Do I really want to do this?* Why did I consider reading this book - having already seen the movie? Well the film had such an impact on me (one of my favourites) that it was a natural progression and I was intrigued to see if the movie had hit all the right notes as far as the book was concerned. Bought for a reasonable price from www.thebookdepository.co.uk at £6.39 and looking appealing from the front cover - with matching impressive blurb on the rear - I anticipated a good read and cry! *Sit yourself down and I shall begin* A short synopsis of this novel by Nicholas Sparks - The book begins with a wonderful old gentleman who resides ...

The Notebook is one of my favourite novels by Nicholas Sparks. Sparks has captured the hearts of women (and probably a few male readers too) all over the world, of different ages. It is no surprise that this book is a classic, best-seller and they even made the film "The Notebook" based upon. As with most books, you will find differences between the novel and the film. My aim today is to give you an idea of what the book will be about and my experience of reading it without any spoilers. ===Quote=== As you may notice, I quoted a line in the beginning.

Back when I was a lot younger, I wasn't too much of a reader, I remember picking up my first Nicholas Sparks book. It was this one, The Notebook. This must have been a good 2/3 years before the film was even released, and I absolutely adored it. Since then I have read every book that Nicholas Sparks has ever written and think he is one of the best writers that I've ever read. I was shocked when I realised that I hadn't written a review on this book already on this site as it is probably one of the best books I've read in my life. It truly is a masterpiece. ======= The Plot ======= We are first introduced to an elderly ... Read the complete review

I had heard only good things about The Notebook. Most people will know it is a book that has been turned into a hit film. I wanted to read the book and see the film but I decided to read the book first as I hate spending ages reading a book where I already know the ending! *Plot* The book begins by introducing us to an elderly man in a nursing home. He tells us a little about his life and then the book jumps to a different era where we meet Noah. Noah is an unmarried man who is spending all of his time renovating a house he has recently bought. He lives a fairly lonely life, he has one friend who pops by some evenings but otherwise he tends to be ... Read the complete review

After seeing the film of this book I really wanted to read this so I could see how well the film was adapted and if it missed anything out. I was very pleased when I received this as another birthday present as I though hubby had forgotten I was after it. I cannot believe though that I knew exactly what was coming at the end of the book but it still made me cry like a baby! The book starts with us being introduced to an elderly gentleman who is living in a nursing home and is ill but spends his day reading to a lady friend who had Alzheimer's and does not know who he is. He reads to her from his notebook about a lovely young couple called Allie and Noah. ... Read the complete review
