The story was trite and predictable. The ending was creepy, and the accents were offensive.
What an invigorating love story of real true love. The romance, the passion and the contentment let you believe that true love exist even now. The love letters add character to the story.
I don't normally like to read a book after I have already seen the movie version, but the movie was so good that I figured the book must be amazing. The book was indeed very good and I was surprised how much the book and the movie are alike. Typically, movies leave out so much detail but I think the movie portrayal of this novel was spot on. I was surprised to discover that this was the author's first published novel as he has so many now and all of them seem to be adapted to film. No need to describe what the novel is about as it is a popular work, but I will say that this is one Nicholas Sparks book that does a great job describing deep, true love without a heavy dose of cheese and cliché.
I recommend this book for ages 16+.
I am new to reading for pleasure, but have been a fan of the movie the Notebook since it came out. A top 5 movie in my book. I will say, for the first time, I believe the movie was vetter thsn the book. The skipped over and has minimal flashbacks to when they were young & met. I needed more of that.
good story though.
Yes, the book differs from the movie just a little bit, but it's still amazing!
How original the story was and the eternal love of Noah
Noah, his amazing love, passion and personality.
Just read it, you won't be disappointed.
I love Nicholas Sparks' books, but this is one of the rare occasions that the movie was actually better than the book. I don't think the book showed how their love developed and grew to help the reader become emotionally connected with the characters. Instead the summer they spent together was summed up in a paragraph.
I listened to this book because I thought that the movie was amazing. It is a great love story but to me it was too gushy. I love romance but this book did pour it on think. It was a little too much for me.
I can't imagine.
Nothing. The writing was so poor.
I like a well-written romance novel, but this one was tedious. I listened to the end, but wouldn't have continued reading it in text format.
I LOVE THIS STORY!!! I love the movie! I love everything about this book. I would recommend this book to anyone I know! No matter how many times I read this book or watch the movie, I still cry every single time.
Comparable, After all..... The pictures are in your mind!
The story itself.
No favorites - all performed well by Mr. Bostwick.
Yes, but could not dedicate the consecutive periods of time.
