the notebook

The Notebook is Nicholas Sparks’ first novel, and although not my favorite from his twenty-plus published works, it’s a wonderful cozy-up-in-bed heartwarming read. It has sappy romance, simple language, a beautiful setting, and realistic characters.

The story of Noah and Allie’s lives as it spans to old age demonstrates how the truest form of love can see you through the most challenging tests life throws your way. If I recall correctly, I believe the book is based on Sparks’ in-law’s relationship.

I will say that I believe that the movie adaptation of the book is much better than the book. A young Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams bring the characters to life and seamlessly make you believe that true love is possible.
