Experience the unforgettable, heartbreaking love story set in post-World War II North Carolina about a young socialite and the boy who once stole her heart -- one of PBS's 'Great American Reads'.

Every so often a love story so captures our hearts that it becomes more than a story -- it becomes an experience to remember forever. The Notebook is such a book. It is a celebration of how passion can be ageless and timeless, a tale that moves us to laughter and tears and makes us believe in true love all over again . . .

At thirty-one, Noah Calhoun, back in coastal North Carolina after World War II, is haunted by images of the girl he lost more than a decade earlier. At twenty-nine, socialite Allie Nelson is about to marry a wealthy lawyer, but she cannot stop thinking about the boy who long ago stole her heart. Thus begins the story of a love so enduring and deep it can turn tragedy into triumph, and may even have the power to create a miracle . . .

Absolutely loved the movie and thought the book would be even better as it usually is. I learned however opposite the movie, there was more history in Noah and Ally as an older couple than there was about them younger which after seeing the movie made me think that was the part of the story that really built up the type of love they had. Seeing them go through all they did when they were younger made the times the book focused on them being a part so much harder to bear that when they did get back together you found even more relief for the characters. The way the book is written lacked that affection from be but nonetheless was a good story and very well written. for the first time ever for me, i actually enjoyed the movie better. As far as the narrator he was very good but i definitely didn't like the music being played at parts while he was still reading. It was in my opinion, bad music and too loud that i couldn't focus on what he was saying at such an important part of the story because I was trying to tune out the music.

Saw the movie first and absolutely loved it. But I always come back to the books. Books are good for the soul and Nicholas Sparks does such a wonderful job feeding mine. I love his books and always will. He brings romance to another level and I will forever wonder if that kind of romance exists as it does in his stories.
