Review: The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks

I began reading it without knowing what it was about or what the ending was going to be like. I absolutely love this book! It is incredibly easy to read and I couldn't put it down! I loved the characters and  I felt that I could clearly picture them from their descriptions in this novel.
Nicholas Sparks is also very good at describing scenery, as he describes buildings and rivers etc. with impeccable adjectives.

Nicholas Sparks describes it as "Alzheimer’s…It is a thief of hearts and souls and memories…"and I do have to say he described it so perfectly. Allie has forgotten everything: Her past, her husband, and she has no clue who she is. Every day Noah reads Allie their story from the notebook, and she always has to guess the ending when, we, the reader know in out hearts what it is. I personally began to feel so touched and moved at this point in the book I cried and it made me realise just how horrible Alzheimer's disease is and that it is a 'thief' in it's own right.

Nicholas Sparks' style of writing is very good, and he really draws you in with ever page. He really portrays the themes of  forbidden love; never giving up on your dreams; parental aspirations/expectations for their children; as  well as Alzhiemers disease and effects on loved ones.

'The Notebook' is incredibly easy to read and the descriptions of both character, and scenery are fabulous. The emotional side of the story about dealing with Alzheimer's Disease and following your dreams is very touching as well as inspiring to those who read this book. The beginning of the novel is spoken in direct address from Noah's point of view, and then moves on into the past which I quite like.

As always, I have nothing bad to say about this novel.

So without further ado I am going to give 'The Notebook' by Nicholas Sparks a: 5/5
