Read this book a year or so back even though I've seen the movie a long time ago. Just like The Last Song, I was able to recall Kevin Costner's character weaved through his sorrows and joy. I bawled towards the end eventhough I knew what was coming.
A great book to read for leisure time. While its first half--The Notebook--is highly romantic from the start, Sparks creates its perfect half--the love story that depicts a marriage that is falling downhill and needs rebuilding. Readers are spoken to by the husband who admits, maybe too late, that he needs to learn how to *do* and not just *say*.
