February fourteen ,the day would give chill to many .
Freshly bloomed carmine roses and milky white lilies will be garlanding the hands of the couples with a charismatic appearance resplendent Ferraro Rochers and vibrant gift wrappers will be dressing the occasion in a splendid mannerism .Candle lights will be escalating up to equalize the aura emitted by the moon.Altogether it would be a day of passion and obsession intertwined .To all the Bibliophiles who are on the single’s zone to lighten up your day , I would like to present you the book review of your all time favorite romantic novel.
So here we go……………
Blurb of the book:
North Carolina, 1946. Young Noah comes back to his birthplace after WWII to realise his dream of living in the big house near the River.
He really misses Allie, a beautiful girl he met seven years before and really loved in their short happy time together. They haven’t seen each other since then.
Destiny has decided to write a perfect love story for Noah and Allie. The most beautiful one can imagine. However, their relationship was not a fairy-tale …
“They didn’t agree on much. In fact they didn’t agree on anything. They fought all the time and challenged each other ever day. But despite their differences, they had one important thing in common. They were crazy about each other”.
Spark was born in Nebraska in 1965 and studied at the University of Notre Dame. He lives with his wife and five children in North Carolina and is commonly called “Love Poet”.
My take on the classic:
Last week when I was cleaning my book shelf with a grumpy face ,a old paperback caught my attention .Due to renting it to my peers often the book was in a not so presentable appearance .After arranging the books to proper format I just started to write the review for this much loved piece of art ,as I always say that Nicholas Sparks is an icon symbol for Valentine’s Day .To celebrate the day without him is something impossible .
Noah and Allie are the ones who connected Indian readers with Nicholas Sparks .Their mushy romance is so much more that the book wants to convey but it is true love that is exemplified.Some of the scenes are so cheesy yet heart warming .Some of the scenes are so predictable but yet it gives us a fast heart beat due to the connect we had with the characters .Noah and Allie’s love affair extends into old age, and unlike most love stories we see in books and films today, this story takes us beyond the mere beginning of a true love and all the way to the end – in the process, celebrating the sanctity of marriage.
The tone established by the narrator reveals the nature of the narrative and serves to pull in the reader by creating a sense of intimacy. This informal tone enables readers to connect with the narrator, becoming emotionally invested in the story. The informal tone and easy-to-read narrative are deceptive because the ideas and characters in The Notebook are not as simplistic. Sparks’ style enables him to both reach and connect with a wide audience.
The Notebook is ultimately an epic love story, where the underlying and most lasting message is that true love never dies. I highly recommended you to both read and watch this enchanting love story and get lost in the competing worlds of both language and imagery. Both are sure to impress.
