In many ways, I am writing this essay for myself . It is also for my English credit. I decided to write my essay from a drama book. It is “The Notebook” by Nicolas Sparks. There are 268 pages, and it was published by Warner Books. It was published in 1996, and the text is unabridged. I chose this book, because I have heard many great things about the author. I also liked the type of book it is. It is a romance novel. This book is a best seller and was later turned into a movie that won millions of hearts.

Noah, thirty-one, is restoring a plantation home to its former glory, and he is haunted by images of the beautiful girl he met fourteen years earlier, a girl he loved like no other. Allie Nelson, twenty-nine, is now engaged to another man, but realizes that the passion she felt for Noah has not dimmed with the passage of time. Like a puzzle within a puzzle, the story of Noah and Allie is just the beginning. As it unfolds, their tale becomes something different, with much higher stakes. The result is a deeply moving portrait of love itself, the tender moments and the fundamental changes that affect us all.

Fin is an important character. He is the reason Noah and Allie met. Fin and his date are at a carnival where Noah meets Allie. Frank is Noah’s father, who adores Allie, and see the happiness and love she has brought to his son’s life. Allie’s parents are against her seeing Noah. They are accepting the summer romance, but don’t want it to go further than that. Fin dies later in war. As time goes by, Allie meets a gentleman by the name of Lon Hammonds Jr., who owns Hammonds Cotton.

The book is mostly drama, but also a romance novel. It is set in North Carolina in the 20th century and as time goes by they enter the 21st century. They spent a lot of time at the Windsor Plantation which was built in 1772. Noah works at the lumber yard, and Allie attends school at Charleston. This novel shows how two people can love one another...
