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 Captivating

    I’ve watched the movie countless times before but the book is so much better. It’s a page-turner that’s for sure. I’m a little bummed that the ending is so abrupt though. That’s my only complaint. 9.9999/10

    I loved this book. It is one I will read over and over. The movie is one I have seen several times. A classic love story, on par with Gone With the Wind, but sweeter. A must read for all. One odd his best.
  • The Notebook: a review

    By Allym02
    I must say before I start this, I am not a romance novel person (normally), but once I read this book it all changed. The sense of tragedy in the love story makes one very emotional, there are many emotions that go through your mind while reading, which is something not all books can do. Allie and Noah’s love story starts out somewhat confusing as you don’t know the whole story from beginning to end yet, giving it that hook that makes you want to read more. The storyline just grows throughout the book, adding the emotion and suspense of what Allie will do next, or what Noah is thinking at the moment, and vice versa. The book makes you laugh, cry, be happy, sad, etc; I definitely recommend reading this book, it’s one of my all time favorite books as well as the movie.
