Title: The Notebook
Author: Nicholas Sparks
At last, I was able to read this book. I actually have watched the film first and that’s why it took a awhile before I decided to read the book. For me, it is the BEST LOVE STORY EVER WRITTEN. (Kudos to Nicholas Sparks!)
It’s very powerful and very heart warming.
It makes you believe in TRUE LOVE. A love that can last a lifetime. Of all the characters, I admire Noah the most. For me, He is the “IDEAL” picture of a TRUE MAN. He knows how to handle his lady. He treats her with respect and never OWNS his girl.
During their married life, he lets Allie do what she wants, he encourages her during the time when she needed him the most and at the same time, he knows how to keep quiet and just listen. Allie’s courage to cool off her wedding (to another guy) is also very admirable. It takes a great person to do that. Sometimes, it’s not easy to follow your heart when you know you are hurting someone or somebody you love or you used to love. This book is about courage to fight for what you really want and what your heart really desires.
It also makes you believe that if you are meant to be, you will be. I know, your future depends on your present choices but then, God will always make a make a way no matter what obstacles might happen. When you read this make sure you have your hankies ready.
Nicholas Sparks has become famous for writing the sweet and tender love story that appeals to the romantic in all of us. He doesn’t disappoint with “The Notebook” as he weaves the tale of two teenagers, Noah and Allie, who meet one fateful summer and fall in love. Since the course of true love is never smooth, it should come as no surprise that Allie’s parents do not approve of her relationship with Noah. He does not have the education, money, or social prominence they wish for their daughter. Allie and her parents move away and Noah writes to her for years, but after never receiving an answer gives up. WWII comes, lives change, but one thing remains constant—neither Allie nor Noah can forget the other. As Noah’s friend Gus tells him, first love changes your life forever and no matter what else happens in your life, the memory of it stays with you.
