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)

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 👋
