"Somewhere," muses Noah Calhoun, while sitting on his porch in the moonight, "there were people making love." The Notebook, a Southern-fried story of love-lost-and-found-again, revolves around a single time-honored romantic dilemma: will beautiful Allison Nelson stay with Mr. Respectability (to whom she happens to be engaged), or will she choose Noah, the romantic rascal she left so many years ago?

A delightful tale of the truest of love and the best of human nature it promotes. Noah and Allie, teenage lovers, separated by war and for 10 years. rediscover each other just as Allie is to marry Lon, upright but not a rugged lover. With twists, true love prevails. And then the real twist – fast forward to the present where aged Noah and Alzheimer patient Allie are in a care home, and you discover the real meaning of true love.

Noah and Allie come from different lifestyles and fall in love. The couple goes through a lot but nothing keeps them apart. - Franchesca, Teen Volunteer

Nicholas Sparks has to be one of my all time favorite authors. I love how his books make you laugh, cry, and even get upset with the characters. The Notebook is a must read, even after watching the movie. I love the characters in this story and cannot even imagine having to make some of the decision they went through in the book. Also the heartache he must feel everyday. This is definitely a must read book!

This is a wonderful love story and surprised it's written by a man as it's very romantic and written with a happy ever after ending. Some would say too sappy or too blissful even amidst trials...is it hopeful or unrealistic?

A beautiful love story that spans the lifetime of two distinct individuals from opposite sides of the tracks. Set against the backdrop of WWII, this story allows readers to witness the love of Noah and Allie, showing that love can conquer the many obstacles that are put in front of it.

The Notebook is such an amazing book I have ever read! It was my first romantic book I have read. If you watch the movie too, you're going cry because it was that good, and little emotional. I literally love it.
