Review: The Notebook
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
After a spot in a recent Writer's Digest showcasing Nicholas Sparks, I browsed his website dedicated to authors and gained a lot of respect for him as an author. He had a lot to say about how to write and I decided to see how well he wrote.
I can see why this book was worth a Million dollar advance.
I'm sure we've all read it or seen the movie, so I won't get into the plot, but needless to say I had a hard time not shedding tears during the last quarter of the book. The devotion the husband shows to his wife is so beautiful and touching.
As much as I'm not a romance type of guy, I think I'll have to add this as one of my favorite books. Short, beautiful, telling, and effective.
