Preview — The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
"Do you want to stay for dinner?" he asked, wondering what she would say.
"Okay," she said, and than asked, "What should we eat?"
"Crabs," he said.
She never had crabs. They b ...more
I know this is a beloved book, by a beloved author, but if I could give it any sort of negative rating, I would. The "Gag me with a spoon" category is almost too kind. My apologies to any one who likes Nicholas Sparks - if you're able to find the genius in his writing, more power to you ...more
I’m just gonna say it: I expected less.
Not being inexperienced in the reading of Nicholas Sparks novels, I somewhat knew this book would contain tons and tons of corny and cheesy replies and gestures. But NOT in every. single. paragraph. I’m not one to discard the idea of soul mates, after all the young adult readings that I have done, but when something is too wonderful and perfect, it’s more annoying than cute. So there is too much of that.
Also, the plot is so weirdly shaped. It starts with No ...more
Kind of like when you see this?
That’s what reading The Notebook was like. The romantic tone of The Notebook was both its greatest asset and biggest downfall. Nobody wants to be crushed by squee anymore
than they want to drown in their own tears and The Notebook wants to destroy you. Never doubt that. Whether it’s leaching your bodily liquids o ...more
Sweet and romantic, but I liked the movie much more. In fact, I LOVED the movie and watched it before reading this. In the movie, the characters of Noah and Allie had more intensity and passion. It is one of those rare moments, for me, when the movie was better than the book.
There are some great quotes in this book though. These were my favourite:
"I am a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedic ...more

This Sparks character had a fantastic idea for a story, a truly painful and passionate story of love and devotion. But the book? It was like my 14 year old nephew watched this brilliant movie, then tried to write about it on his myspace blog. It was butchered by an appalling lack adjectives and an appalling lack of emotion. Sad.
The fact that so many people are willi ...more
It irritated me to no end that Sparks felt the need to not leave anything unexplained, describing things in excruciating detail, boring me but ...more
Noah and Allie fell in love one summer when he was 17 and she 15. She leaves, and fourteen years pass before Allie, now engaged, returns to Noah. Are they still in love? Will she marry her over-working fiance, with whom she shares a passionless relationship and who keeps her from pursuing her passion of art? Or will she choose Noah, the boy she spent a grand total of one summer with and lost her virginity to (and hasn't had sex with anoth ...more
I first read this book when I was about 15 so this was almost not memorable for me though I’ve watched the movie thousands of times. (Even in the middle of reading this book this time around just because I wanted to double up being all in my feels.)
This book is just.... beautiful. The way Allie and Noah’s love for each other just spills out of the pages is just magical. I feel just so grateful to be able to read their story. Letter writing really knows how to tear at my hear ...more
A beautiful, emotional, intense and passionate love story 💖 💖!
Well, there's no accounting for taste, and if you like sappy Twoo Luv stories this is your man. My mileage varied, mostly because I was reading critically with ALL my teeth and claws out, so I'll forgive you if you enjoyed it because yeah ...more
So, why the four stars? This book was given to me by my uncle when I was barely fourteen. I remember reading it then and wondering if he had actually read it, and then thinking that if he had, then he must consider me mature enough to read this book, and feeling quite proud of the fact. Back th ...more
- Read a book you meant to read last year
- Read and watch a book to movie adaptation
*3.5 / 5 stars
Is The Notebook sappy? Yes. Cheesy? Yes. And romantic? Also yesss.
I would say that I like this book and do I like it as much as I like the movie? No, of course. In the book, I think it would be better if the author told more details about the summer Allie and Noah spent together because when I read about this in the book, I really don’t understand why they loved each other that ...more
In a Word : boring
*Wonders if watching paint dry might actually be more exciting*
We’ve all seen the movie right? So it's that... but with all the emotion sucked out of it.
The beauty of lifetime love was represented in this story. The kind of love that leaves you falling in love with that person every day no matter what life brings your way. Like, real life love.
The romance was a snooze fest.
So here’s wha ...more
I picked this book bcz of a suggestion and well, as the rating tells you, it didn’t work out well. Not that I hated the book but I found it to be like an incessant droning voice. If anyone, most of you, like or love how this book reads, I am truly happy for you but for me personally it was so so so bland tha ...more

I actually liked that I watched the movie before reading the book (I know I am shocked lol 😂). The narrator was on point and made me feel a lot. I might have fell asleep with teary eyes or with waterfalls... Same difference whatever lol 🙄🤔😒😂 hahaha
Listening to the audio copy, I can't stop picturing Ryan Gosling 😝
I suppose [my life] has most resembled a blue chip stock: fairly stable, more ups than downs, and gradually trending upward over time. A good buy, a lucky buy, and I've learned that not everyone can say that about his life.
"A living poem" had always been the words that came to mind when he tried to describe her to others.
Our lives can't be measured by our final years, of this I am sure.
We sit silently and watch the world around us. This has taken a lifetime to learn. It seems only ...more
