Good. (: :)
I think this was a very very good book, and I love the movie too. It is very romantic. I want something or someone to be like that to me; I want a cute guy that would treat me right maybe I'm not pretty enough! Oh well, I want a miracle for someone cute nice and dresses well to go out with me for a while. ( :

great book
This book a true romantic will enjoy. Noah & Allie have a great love that no one can break nor can see.

My life as it is tight now
I am living this life right now. Identical - all of it except we haven't made it to the end. The 1st love , the rejected boyfriend joining the forces, my being a nurse and a painter, finding a stable wonderful life partner, and then 40 years later a reunion. How I cope with this I don't know. This story has really affected me in more ways then you can ever imagine.

question
First off I want to say : this book was wonderful. I cried so much my eyes had turned red.
Second : I had a question; this was the first book I've read of Nicholas Sparks. Are there any other books of him you would recommend ?
I really love this book , and I want to read another great book of his but I'm afraid I'll get a book that isn't so good and be disappointed. :(

LOVE NICHOLAS SPARKS' WRITING!
Amelia, you have no heart what so ever! I can't believe what you think about his books. I have read so many of his books and I am only 16 and I have cried at the end of every single one of them. Nicholas Sparks is such a fantastic writer and he puts so much emotion into his beautiful writing, anyone with a heart could see that.

heart-wrenching
I had seen the movie before I read the book, which is usually a mistake, however when I found out the movie was from a book I immediately bought it. If you cried at the movie, you best have a box of tissues handy as its even sadder! As books often do, the characters are much more alive in the book and it is incredibly well written. Heart-wrenching is an understatement.

A beautiful love story, possibly the most beautiful ever told. A tale never forgotten. It is one for the romantics, love conquers all.
