I found the story to be confusing when the author shifted from past to present to past. ( )

Read this book while deployed and thinking about my upcoming marriage upon arriving back in the states. The guy can write, but I think it kind of sneaky and clever on his part to make millions on the tears of so many women. A writer that truly plays his audience for suckers all the way to the bank. ( )

A story about true love. If you get emotional when you read, have the tissues ready. I was not prepared and was caught off guard in the middle of an airport. ( )

I actually didn't enjoy this as much as I thought I would. Loved the movie, but the book is only getting 3 stars from me....can't really pinpoint what didn't thrill me about it...who's to say. It was still a good book, just not as good as I had expected :( ( )

I first listened to Nicholas Spark's "The Notebook," audiobook downloaded from iTunes. Yes, I actually paid for the audiobook. If I paid for it than download the pirated version from the internet, I was interested in listening to the whole story. I listened to the story told by Noah on his relationship with Allie while working at a dreaded law firm when they moved its location. The audiobook was a pleasant distraction from the office work environment. I must have listened to this story from my iPod for hours at length at work while still working. I did not know a man can write such a story of a relationship that female readers, audiences can relate to. I have seen the movie version of the book at theaters, and all the girls in the theater was crying at the end of the film. This story is so poignant and written with beautiful description. I must have listened to the audiobook around 2003, 2004 and I can still recall the words the author used to paint the scene when Allie and Noah meet again after years of being apart. The scene is depicted in the movie where Noah rows the boat in the water where flock of birds float around them. It is a beautiful scene. The reader/listener is engaged and wants to keep turning the page when there are scenes of Allie and Noah together. The story of their relationship can make a young girl hopeful. This is a nice escape to read and listen to. The ending is sad but not tragic. The book is written by a Virgo author and I have met Virgos that are sweet. The only author that can match this sad ending but overall nice story of a relationship is a Gemini writer, Erich Segal's "Love Story." The reader can tell that the male character loved his female character in the book. ( )

First words
Who am I? And how, I wonder, will this story end?
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.
