What a wonderful story! Nicholas Sparks went far beyond the creation of just another "tear jerker", the book touches ones soul, as Sparks reflects of many of the questions that sooner or later we all ask us in our lives. What is the purpose of my life? What truly brings joy to me? What will it be that I will have in my head to take with me, when it is finally time to go? And so many more...
All this packaged in a gripping yet gently told love story that leads us on a emotional roller coaster (as life is), and it is hard to take a break before the story ends. Recommended by a man, especially to all other men out there.
It is sad that many women (especially in the U.S.) think, that men can not express their feelings or truly share their love and emotions, and even enclose their own husbands in that generalization.
They need to ask themselves why did they marry this "great", yet emotion-less man in the first place.
Our society certainly can improve to participate in the upbringing of more gentle, warm, caring, loving, and emotionally secure males, but many of them already exist, just open your eyes...
I really enjoyed this book. It shows the strength of true love and how powerful it can be. I was hooked from the beginning, and had a hard time turning the player off when it was time to leave work. You will probably need a tissue!
NO BODY CAN POSSIBLY HAVE THE KIND OF LOVE THESE TWO PEOPLE HAVE. IT IS A GREAT STORY AND WHAT REALLY MAKES IT GRAND IS THE NARRARATOR. HE SOUNDS AS IF IT IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING TO HIM AND PUTS UNBELIEVABLE FEELING INTO IT. AND TO THINK IT WAS WRITTEN BY A MAN. WILL WONDERS NEVER CEASE?
This was a great listen. At first I wasn't sure I liked the narrators voice but after a short while I settled in and loved it. What a wonderful story, this was my first Nicholas Sparks book but won't be my last, just started The Choice!!
The book "The Notebook" is nice. Very sweet, like the movie. However, I did not like this particular AudioBook because of the loud, obnoxious music that played in the background. The music was entirely too loud which made the narration very hard to hear, and I also found it distracting. I doubt I'll buy another audiobook from this particular maker.
I have to say in my top five atleast!
I love this aughtor, this is the third book i've "read" now and I'm going to keep on listening to the rest he has written too. I hope they are as greate as this one. The thing I liked the best? That nicholas manages to create the "perfect guy" and bring him to life for all us hopless romantics hoping to find our prince charming!
I think he sounded like the noah i pictured in my head!
Its already a film, but it would be something like "world's best lovestory!"
Absolutely one of my favorites!
I absolutely loved this book! I laughed and cried and didn't want it to end. It's one of the most romantic stories I've ever heard. I have already ordered the movie and can't wait to watch it.
The undying love and commitment.
I have liked almost all of the books by Nicholas Sparks. This one was not disappointing.
Amazingly though, I LOVE the movie and connected totally with the story and the characters. The book is the same story; however, way too much talk, talk, talk in the story. I listened to the entire book, but was ready for it to be over. I have watched the movie over and over, and never tire of it.
I liked this book and the narrator was really good. But, the movie was better, and I wouldn't recommend this particular book. So sorry.
