Review : The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

Every so often a love story so captures our hearts that it becomes more than a story-it becomes an experience to remember forever. The Notebook is such a book. It is a celebration of how passion can be ageless and timeless, a tale that moves us to laughter and tears and makes us believe in true love all over again… 

At thirty-one, Noah Calhoun, back in coastal North Carolina after World War II, is haunted by images of the girl he lost more than a decade earlier. At twenty-nine, socialite Allie Nelson is about to marry a wealthy lawyer, but she cannot stop thinking about the boy who long ago stole her heart. Thus begins the story of a love so enduring and deep it can turn tragedy into triumph, and may even have the power to create a miracle…(From: Goodreads)

⭐⭐ stars…

Who am I?  And how, I wonder, will this story end?

First thing first, I don’t read romance.

So now you must be like, WHY, REMI?  SO WHY DID YOU READ THIS BOOK AND NOT LIKED IT?  I joined my friend Megan’s book club.  Other four ladies decided that reading a good romance would be a good idea.  Clearly…not so good for me.

I haven’t watched the movie.  I don’t think I’m ever gonna be interested in this kind of movies.  (I’m more of an adventure, action, sci-fi kind of person, on movies.). The first time I heard about The Notebook was while I was watching Teen Wolf — Lydia asked Jackson to rent The Notebook DVD.

I’m not surprised that I didn’t give high rating for this book.  

Things I Like About It 

– the scenes 

The scenes seemed beautiful.  I want to visit North Carolina!  Lovely people from North Carolina, is NC really that peaceful and awesome?

Things I Dislike About It 

– the story 

I guess I’m just not interested in pure love story.


It’s not a bad book.  It’s just not my thing.  You could try it if you

– like sweet romance 

– can endure aching pain in your heart (though I didn’t feel anything)

– are in a book club and this book unfortunately is the weekly read

You shouldn’t read it if you

– don’t like romance 

That’s all for my review of The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks.  Have you read the book or watched the movie?  Let me know what you think!

Have a nice day and I’ll see you next time!  Bye bye 👋

  1. I’m not a fan of romances either. I saw the movie years ago when it came out, and that was enough for me. Good for you though for working through your dislike of the genre for your bookclub. Hope you enjoy your next read more, Remi!
