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*.
Three Weeks with My Brother by Nickolas Sparks and Micah Sparks "Narrated with irrepressible humor and rare candor, and including personal photographs, Three Weeks with my Brother reminds us to embrace life with all its uncertainties. . . and most of all, to cherish the joyful times, both small and momentous, and the wonderful people who make them possible."
GREAT BOOK! The Guardian starts with Julie Barenson receiving a Great Dane pup that her husband arranged to arrive on Christmas Eve before he died of a brain tumor. New men enter Julie's life, and the dog helps her determine who is worthy of her affection.
The Notebook is about a man who reads to an old woman he visits from a faded notebook that tells the story of a couple who are separated by World War II, then passionately reunited years later.
