A man with a faded, well-worn notebook open in his lap. A woman experiencing a morning ritual she doesn't understand. Until he begins to read to her. THE NOTEBOOK is an achingly tender story about the enduring power of love, a story of miracles that will stay with you forever. Set amid the austere beauty of the North Carolina coast, The Notebook begins with the story of Noah Calhoun, a rural Southerner recently returned from the Second World War. Noah is restoring a plantation home to its former glory, and he is haunted by images of the beautiful girl he met fourteen years earlier, a girl he loved like no other. Unable to find her, yet unwilling to forget the summer they spent together, Noah is content to live with only memories...until she unexpectedly returns to his town to see him once again. Allie Nelson is now engaged to another man, but realizes that the original passion she felt for Noah has not dimmed with the passage of time. Yet the obstacles that once ended their previous relationship still remain, and the gulf between their worlds is too vast to ignore. With her impending marriage only weeks away, Allie is forced to confront her hopes and dreams for the future, a future that only she can shape. Like a puzzle within a puzzle, the story of Noah and Allie is just the beginning. As it unfolds, their tale miraculously becomes something different, with much higher stakes. The result is a deeply moving portrait of love itself, the tender moments and the fundamental changes that affect us all. In the tradition of LOVE STORY and THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, THE NOTEBOOK establishes Nicholas Sparks as a classic storyteller with a unique insight into the only emotion that really matters.

2.5 The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
I have to agree with (some) other reviewers about this book...I actually enjoyed the movie more. Noah and Allie in the movie had a very passionate chemistry, and an almost palpable connection that was somehow absent in the book...And I’m also one of those who prefer the movie’s ending to the book. A...

3.5 Another Nicholas Sparks tear-jerker.
Another Nicholas Sparks tear-jerker. This felt like two completely different novels - one narrating the teenage meeting of Noah and Allie, and how they were separated by time and space until they met again fourteen years later. The other, the part that really touched me, was the present day story ...

3.5 Ich wollte mehr!!!
Ich find das Buch wirklich gut geschrieben, es hat richtig schöne Momente und ist einfach ein typisches Sparks Buch, was nicht schlimm ist, denn ich brauch ab und zu einfach, ein richtiges Sparks Buch. Mir hat nur ein bisschen Entwicklung in dem Buch gefehlt. Wie die Seitenzahl (220) erahnen lässt...
