“I love you. I am who I am because of you. You are every reason, every hope, and every dream I’ve ever had, and no matter what happens to us in the future, every day we are together is the greatest day of my life. I will always be yours…” ( Nicholas Sparcs, 1996).
One would think that there can not be love similar to the love of Noah and Allie. The love which has stood all the tests, which has wounded every heart. The Notebook is not just a love novel; it is the novel about great love. The Notebook is the book which turns our minds into a deep ocean of fabulous feelings and heart-rending events. The Notebook is always to remember; it is a chance to meet each other again.
The main characters of the novel are ordinary people. Noah Calhoun is the son of lumber-man, and Allie Nelson is from a well-to-do family. Maybe, they would have never met, if it were not that summer. Then, they have a lot of barriers to love each other, but against all the odds, they meet again. But the destiny played a long down trick with them, Allie came down with a terrible disease – she lost her memory and couldn’t remember her lovely Noah anymore. But Noah kept his hopes up. He has been reading to Allie her notebook again and again in order to be together even for some time. They fell in love being teenagers and died with this love in the less of their lives.
The Notebook of Nicholas Sparks is the best love story I’ve ever read. It transfers myself in that tale, where I always want to be. It is impossible to hold back tears at the end of the book. It is said that this book is based on real events. Someone can say that it is impossible, but I believe that such real, pure, crazy, mutual and eternal love exists. If every person could love like Allie and Noah, probably, there were fewer wars and malevolent people.
