    1. I love the movie, but if you think that was sappy, do not pick up this book I heard Nicholas Sparks had a knack for sap, but I almost drowned in it and felt no spark at all The book was so frustratingly simple and obvious and laid out The dialoque droned I ll come back and add a real quote, but it was something like this Do you want to stay for dinner he asked, wondering what she would say Okay, she said, and than asked, What should we eat Crabs, he said She never had crabs They b I love the mov [...]


    2. I m just gonna say it I expected less.Not being inexperienced in the reading of Nicholas Sparks novels, I somewhat knew this book would contain tons and tons of corny and cheesy replies and gestures But NOT in every single paragraph I m not one to discard the idea of soul mates, after all the young adult readings that I have done, but when something is too wonderful and perfect, it s annoying than cute So there is too much of that.Also, the plot is so weirdly shaped It starts with No I m just go [...]


    3. I read this book on a train from Italy to somewhere else in Europe after graduating from college I was unfortunate enough to be forced to buy it because there were no other English Language novels to choose from.I know this is a beloved book, by a beloved author, but if I could give it any sort of negative rating, I would The Gag me with a spoon category is almost too kind My apologies to any one who likes Nicholas Sparks if you re able to find the genius in his writing, power to you I read this [...]


    4. This is the worst book I have EVER READ And the fact that this guy is so popular continues to astound me I would give it less than zero stars if I could My sister tricked me into reading this book, and I wish I could gain that time back into my life so I could read a different book This book teaches you that ANYONE could write a bestseller Just be sappy and corny and have one big ass deus ex machina and you re all set for stardom As you can tell, I don t read shit that I think I won t like This [...]


    5. Have you ever come across something so undeniably cute that you feel like you may be crushed by the weight of squee that s about to explode from you chest.Kind of like when you see this That s what reading The Notebook was like The romantic tone of The Notebook was both its greatest asset and biggest downfall Nobody wants to be crushed by squee any than they want to drown in their own tears and The Notebook wants to destroy you Never doubt that Whether it s leaching your bodily liquids o Have yo [...]


    6. 4 Stars Also reviewed at Lady Jayne s Reading Den Sweet and romantic, but I liked the movie much In fact, I LOVED the movie and watched it before reading this In the movie, the characters of Noah and Allie had intensity and passion It is one of those rare moments, for me, when the movie was better than the book.There are some great quotes in this book though These were my favourite I am a common man with common thoughts, and I ve led a common life There are no monuments dedic 4 S [...]
