*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 ...

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
