The Notebook

I got this book for only 50php + 50 for the shipping fee = 100php. The copy was of poor quality, the cover torn, the pages are already yellow. But it was different for me. I viewed it as my perfect copy. The metallic blue around the edges are still clear, like you just torn it on purpose. Now it`s part of my vintage collections, including the Reader`s Digest 1970 or 1960 edition, I think.

I`ll just copy a short synopsis on goodreads and I`ll just explain more in return.

A man with a faded, well-worn notebook open in his lap. A woman experiencing a morning ritual she doesn't understand. Until he begins to read to her. The Notebook is an achingly tender story about the enduring power of love, a story of miracles that will stay with you forever. Set amid the austere beauty of coastal North Carolina in 1946, The Notebook begins with the story of Noah Calhoun, a rural Southerner returned home from World War II. Noah, thirty-one, is restoring a plantation home to its former glory, and he is haunted by images of the beautiful girl he met fourteen years earlier, a girl he loved like no other. Unable to find her, yet unwilling to forget the summer they spent together, Noah is content to live with only memories. . . until she unexpectedly returns to his town to see him once again. Allie Nelson, twenty-nine, is now engaged to another man, but realizes that the original passion she felt for Noah has not dimmed with the passage of time. Still, the obstacles that once ended their previous relationship remain, and the gulf between their worlds is too vast to ignore. With her impending marriage only weeks away, Allie is forced to confront her hopes and dreams for the future, a future that only she can shape. Like a puzzle within a puzzle, the story of Noah and Allie is just beginning. As it unfolds, their tale miraculously becomes something different, with much higher stakes. The result is a deeply moving portrait of love itself, the tender moments, and fundamental changes that affect us all. Shining with a beauty that is rarely found in current literature, The Notebook establishes Nicholas Sparks as a classic storyteller with a unique insight into the only emotion that really matters. 


First love does keep you well on-track with life. It was said in the book that you can`t forget your first love, and that`s what happened to Noah. He can`t just move on with his life. With his parents gone, he`s alone. Unless of course you count his pet. Allie is about to be wedded to a lawyer, but she decided to visit North Carolina after seeing Noah`s picture in the newspaper. Clearly, she didn`t forget the memories of that summer, that summer when they were too in-love with each other. Now, Allie must decide for her fate.


I thought at first this wasn`t going to have a happy ending, because I heard that in almost every Sparks book, someone dies and makes it more worth crying. But I was wrong tho. It`s a happy ending. Love could really conquer anything--sickness, lies, Everything.
