The Notebook is a novel by Nicholas Sparks published in the U.S.A. in 1996.  
The plot

North Carolina, 1946. Young Noah comes back to his birthplace after WWII to realise his dream of living in the big house near the River.                                                                     
He really misses  Allie, a beautiful girl he met seven years before and really loved in their short happy time together.  They haven’t seen each other since then.                      
Destiny has decided to write a perfect love story for Noah and Allie. The most beautiful one can imagine. However, their relationship was not a fairy-tale …                                                                     
  “They didn’t agree on much. Infact they didn’t agree on anything. They fought all the time and challenged each other ever day. But despite their differences, they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other”. 
The author

Spark was born in Nebraska in 1965 and studied at the University of Notre Dame. He lives with his wife and five children in North Carolina and is commonly called “Love Poet”.

Did you know…? 

• The book quotes Walt Whitman’s poems collected in the book Leaves of Grass.                                 • In 2003  a sequel was published, titled "The Wedding" whose protagonist is  Jane Calhoun,  Noah and Allie’s daughter.

The Notebook became a film in 2004 
“I could be whatever you want. You just tell me what you want and I’ll be that for you”.
Did we like it? 

Oh yes!  "The Notebook" is one of the most beautiful love stories ever told. A story made interesting by its past setting and by its gripping, relatable characters. For a teenager it is not just a love story but is THE love story. The Notebook involves the readers and makes them live in the story  with the characters;   the reader doesn’t know what destiny is ahead for the two lovers.  This  story reminds us that love is necessary for everyone. All kinds of  love. 
Well, it may sometimes sound  too sentimental or even cheesy but what can we do?  We really love Nicholas Sparks.

If you know others of his books, suggest your titles in the comments.
