the last book I read was The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks, and I now want to review it.
I love the way this book is written, because Nicholas Sparks can make it seem so real. It's a love story, and it's romantic, even sad sometimes, but it never gets soupy or too much. I guess it might be too much for someone who doesn't like love stories, but for these who do, you'll love it. This is the 3rd book by Nicholas Sparks I read and I love it like all of the others.
At first I was a little confused, since a main part of this story is "the notebook", but that was clear soon. I also had some thoughts ahead of time, but it did surprise me a little.
This is a good book if you need a cry, or something cute ;) I found that all the "reviews" on the book by magazines that are like a sentence or so (don't know if there's a certain name for that) definitely match.
I was actually surprised when it ended, because I thought it would be longer ;) I didn't know what version I would get, since I had my local book store order it for me, and this edition has an interview, an extract from another book and stuff like that attached to the end. I thought, though, that the story was longer ;) Don't think the additional stuff is really needed, it was nice to read but I could live without it ;) And I'm sure a lot of readers will appreciate the fact that the story is rather short, only 200 pages!
I can't even say a lot more about it without giving something away, so I'll stop here. It's a really good book, and if you like love stories, don't even hesitate when thinking about getting it ;) Still, I can't force you ;)
Did anyone of you read it, too? Or maybe see the movie? I didn't yet.
Until next time!
