Description

At 31, 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 29, 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.

Good book

Very romantic obviously, well red. 4stars because I was not fond of all the music put in behind the narration, that was a bit too much.

Annoying background music

Periodically, there is low-sample-rate music played so loudly that it's difficult to hear the narrator. This went on for so long at the beginning of the book that I nearly abandoned it. The narrator isn't very expressive, though he seems to get better as the book goes on.

Good story, but hated Narration

the narrator's voice was too old sounding for Noah's charactor. Made certain scenes seem creepy. Also the little music incerpts were awful.

Good book, annoying music

The book "The Notebook" is nice. Very sweet, like the movie. However, I did not like this particular AudioBook because of the loud, obnoxious music that played in the background. The music was entirely too loud which made the narration very hard to hear, and I also found it distracting. I doubt I'll buy another audiobook from this particular maker.

Yes, finally a man !

What a wonderful story! Nicholas Sparks went far beyond the creation of just another "tear jerker", the book touches ones soul, as Sparks reflects of many of the questions that sooner or later we all ask us in our lives. What is the purpose of my life? What truly brings joy to me? What will it be that I will have in my head to take with me, when it is finally time to go? And so many more...

All this packaged in a gripping yet gently told love story that leads us on a emotional roller coaster (as life is), and it is hard to take a break before the story ends. Recommended by a man, especially to all other men out there.

It is sad that many women (especially in the U.S.) think, that men can not express their feelings or truly share their love and emotions, and even enclose their own husbands in that generalization.
They need to ask themselves why did they marry this "great", yet emotion-less man in the first place.
Our society certainly can improve to participate in the upbringing of more gentle, warm, caring, loving, and emotionally secure males, but many of them already exist, just open your eyes...

Need tissues for this one

I really enjoyed this book. It shows the strength of true love and how powerful it can be. I was hooked from the beginning, and had a hard time turning the player off when it was time to leave work. You will probably need a tissue!

Movie is Better

Would you ever listen to anything by Nicholas Sparks again?

I'm not sure. I've read a couple of his other books and don't remember being as disappointed.

What didn’t you like about Barry Bostwick’s performance?

At times he was talking so softy, I couldn't understand what he was saying.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment! The character development wasn't there, the romantic chemistry seemed forced. At times, the conversations between the characters seemed absolutely endless circular repeats.

Any additional comments?

I LOVE this movie. One of the rare times that I would say it was much better than the book.

My favorite book so far

I read the book, listened to book and saw the movie. My favorite so far is the audio-version. Highly recommended. Much better than the rescue which I find a little far-fetched and overly gooey.

Chic book, but a good read (grunt, scratch)

Sparks creates a wonderful image of an old man near the end of his days, recollecting his past love.

Wonderful Novel!

Just finished listening to the book. It was really a great "read", and Barry Bostwick did a terrific job as the narrator. I couldn't stop listening to the novel and the added commentary from the author at the end really added some insight into the storyline. I generally don't like "romance" novels, but this one was the greatest. A must read if you unconditionally, truely, and deeply love someone.

maybe too kitschy

Unfortunately the love story becomes unbearably kitschy every time when in very romantic situations (...) a piano starts playing. This is very strange as mostly it's only the speaker's voice you hear. Just over the top.

The story is everything you expect from a proper chickflick (?), the overlapping of several storylines in time is interesting , but maybe not needed because the flashback story is more intense and makes the main story (elderly couple dealing with Alzheimer's) fade away or less interesting...
All in all, not bad, but the audio version is definitely overdone.

Kitschig, Groschenroman -.-

Ich habe mir dieses Hörbuch runtergeladen, weil ich schon oft von diesem Buch gehört habe und auch der Autor sehr bekannt ist und ich dachte, das muss man kennen.

Jetzt bin ich um eine Erfahrung reifer.
Was musste ich die Augen rollen, ja zum Teil sogar lachende Würgetöne von mir geben. Das ist mir bei einem Hörbuch noch nicht passiert.....

Die Rahmenhandlung, also der Anfang und der hintere Teil des Buches, sind dann zum Glück nicht mehr so schlimm und waren eigentlich auch ganz nett anzuhören. Aber die Kerngeschichte, die Liebesgeschichte, wie sie im Notebook niedergeschrieben steht, trieft von Möchtegern-die- Herzen- schwacher-Frauen-erobern-Kitsch-Romantik (sorry, no offense^^). Eine Jugendliebe ohne eine Wort voneinander jeden Tag im Leben der Protagonisten begleitet hat, findet sich nach 14 Jahren wieder. Natürlich verlobt man sich mit einem Kerl, den man nicht liebt, um eine Woche vor der Hochzeit zu seiner Jugendliebe zurück zu kehren....

Glaubt nicht, ich wäre herzlos, auch ich mag Romantik und bin glücklich verleibt, Aber wie sich die beiden anschmachten ist unertäglich.
Oooh, ihre Augen, und aaah, seine Arme, und hmmm, ohhh, ahh, ich kann ja gar nicht hingucken, weil wir ja sooo verliebt waren und soooo gut aussehen und in den 14 Jahren nie jemand anderen an uns rangelassen haben und nur beieinander ne feuchte Hose bekommen...... Selbst wenn mal verärgerte Worte aufkommen, liest der Sprecher diese mit so viel Geschmachte, dass man die Geschichte noch weniger ernst nehmen kann.
Oh, und dann noch diese Musik im Hintergrund. Ja, auch Klaviermusik muss nicht immer schön sein....

Nachdem die Notebookstory zu Ende vorgelesen wurde, begann die Geschichte mich dann doch noch ein wenig zu berühren, denn der Alltag wie er dann beschrieben wird ist da schon realistischer. Ein altes Paar, das trotz Krankheit und Alter einfach unzertrennlich ist, ja, das ist eine Romantik, die mich dann eher anspricht. Deshalb dann immerhin noch ein zweiter Stern von mir.

Wer sich also gerne die Ohren "schmalzig" hört, für den ist dieses Hörbuch wohl genau das richtige. Allen anderen, rate ich sich vielleicht eher den Film anzugucken (den ich aber auch noch nicht gesehen habe, daher kein Gewähr ;-))
