Noah and Allie fell in love as teenagers, with the purest sort of love, only to be kept apart by Allie's mother. Their feelings survived in spite of everything - and they recounted their romance in the pages of a notebook. Now, years later, Allie suffers from Alzheimer's, and her memory has been wiped clean. By reading the story of their relationship and the passion they shared, Noah hopes to break through the barrier of his wife's illness.
This poignant first novel from Nicholas Sparks rivals any love story ever written.

The notebook great love as never written before
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This book was a four five star experience because I had seen the film. Sometimes these can be handed by several actor actress doing the books together.
What was most disappointing about Nicholas Sparks’s story?
The book never disappointed its just if you've seen the film it's written a little different.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
I love the scene in which he takes alley to the swans and they come back and she breaks down and the realise they love each other very much.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Notebook?
Maybe the part they died together on the bed. Very unlikely this would ever happen husband and wife dying together.
Any additional comments?
Anyone who has loved someone and fears dementia should either read this book or watch the film it's so inspiring. My favourite Nicholas sparks novel

In parts the use of words was very moving, and I found my breath catching in my throat, the loss feels so very real.
Choice of narrators was excellent, Campbell Scott is great in everything I’ve heard him in. Both accents are great.
The story felt rushed, very condensed in parts and the time line is jumpy. I think I would have found it hard to follow if I haven’t seen the movie.
It was very predictable in parts, and sometimes ridiculously cheesy but I got over it.
The characters are a lot less conflicted and complex than their movie counterparts. Allie and her mother’s relationship is quite good however the tension in the movie version really helps set the tone.
I really liked this book and although short, it was an enjoyable yet emotional read.

A beautiful love story
I think this is one of the most touching love stories ever written. I listened to the last hour while riding home in the car, and cried all of the way. It's beautifully written and beautifully performed. Get this audiobook...You won't be disappointed! It's a WONDERFUL book describing how enduring the love between two people can be.
