Book Report On The Notebook

Circumstances bring the girl he loved, Allie and him together once more but at this point of time, she is already engaged to someone else.The premise and plot of the story seemed promising.

There are also plot holes wherein Allie’s mother doesn’t support their relationship when they’re 16 but when they’re adults, she’s the one pushing them back together.

There is no backstory about any of the leads and the characters aren’t strong or well-written enough.

The Notebook didn’t falter on the plot, but it unwittingly failed at the writing style.

The whole ‘loss of love, meeting again after many years and falling in love again’ is the kind of story people love to read.

The Notebook which was published in 1996 by American novelist Nicholas Sparks was his first book which went on to become such a huge hit that it instantly shot Sparks to fame, ensuring that every other book he writes would be a better love story, if not as good.

A movie was made based on the book in 2004 starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel Mc Adams.Bollywood adapted it too, by making Zindagi Tere Naam with Mithun Chakraborty.I’d honestly heard so much about this book from all my friends and countless Instagram pages as to how it will definitely make me cry and fall in love all over again.The movie, I believe is better than the book, because it actually shows their love when they were young and then when they’re adults.The book doesn’t talk much about their teenage love, which I feel could’ve added more spark.You’ll love this one if you’re an absolutely hopeless romantic who doesn’t care for sense when it comes to love.The rest of you, you might want to look for something slightly more stronger in terms of writing style and characterization.But the problem with writing a love story is that there is nothing left to say which hasn’t already been said and the story may end up in a cliché if not written well.Since there is seldom anything new to write, one can recycle the old plot and give it a fresh twist with their writing style.The story focuses too much on only Noah and Allie and at places, you wish there was something better with it, like an evil villain or a side character. The story also sort of romanticizes cheating when Allie is already engaged, to a man who is good to her and respects her, but still, spends a romantic weekend with another man and doesn’t feel as guilty as she should.Also Read | 7 Mythology Books That Will Blow Your Mind.
