Have you ever read a quote or a line or a passage that so closely resembled your own life and feelings that it gave you goosebumps? To feel as if the author went into your soul and pulled out your innermost thoughts and feelings? I am only two chapters into The Notebook and it has already happened. This leads me to believe that this book is going to blow away my expectations which were already sky-high having seen the film numerous times and was brought to tears on each occasion...

There was something that kept a distance between him and any woman who started to get close, something he wasn't sure he could change even if he tried. And sometimes in the moments right before sleep came, he wondered if he was destined to be alone forever..."

Well done, Sparks, well done...

Quotes Dominic Liked

Nicholas Sparks
“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough..”
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Nicholas Sparks
“They didn’t agree on much. In fact, they didn’t agree on anything. They fought all the time and challenged each other ever day. But despite their differences, they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other.”
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
