Book Review / The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

Set amid the austere beauty of the North Carolina coast begins the story of Noah Calhoun, a rural Southerner recently returned from the Second World War. Noah is restoring a plantation home to its former glory, and he is haunted by images of the beautiful girl he met fourteen years earlier, a girl he loved like no other. Unable to find her, yet unwilling to forget the summer they spent together, Noah is content to live with only memories...until she unexpectedly returns to his town to see him once again.

Like a puzzle within a puzzle, the story of Noah and Allie is just the beginning. As it unfolds, their tale miraculously becomes something different, with much higher stakes. The result is a deeply moving portrait of love itself, the tender moments and the fundamental changes that affect us all. It is a story of miracles and emotions that will stay with you forever.

It was so good to delve back into this beautiful story.  I can't tell you how many times I have both read the book and watched the movie.  I know the story off by heart now.  Obviously, the book is better than the movie but the movie is good.

What I always enjoyed about this story the most is the love between Noah and Callie right from the day they first met to the very last moment in this story.

There's a lot more I could say about this story but honestly I don't want to spoil any other part of the story.  If you are going to pick this book up, pick it up knowing that it is a love story and don't read anything else about the story until you start to read it.
