The Notebook

The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks is a sappy love story best described as book candy. It's sugary and sweet but doesn't really offer any real content. The book offers a sweet love story told by an aging man in a retirement home. The frame story is a little sappy and lame, but I mostly enjoyed the love story that he told. This book is fun, but definitely not life changing or awe inspiring. Read this book if you like sappy love stories, if you saw the film, or if you just want something quick and easy to read. I give it a 6 out of 10.

6 out of 10 is pretty high for "doesn't really offer any real content," don't you think? :)

You're right Sig. I guess I didn't want to be too harsh. But, now that I think about it..it's probably more like a 4.
