Nicholas Sparks’ first novel about two young lovers who are separated after one summer together to lead their own lives only to have fate bring them back together years later.

I found a lot of hype around this love story of a modern Romeo and Juliet, and around the movie. While I enjoyed the movie and the book, I don’t think it’s going to be my favorite Sparks novel by far. It’s only my second by him, and yet it’s my second favorite. I find many times that the first novel for some authors is not their best and their writing grows over the years, so this may be true for Sparks.

However, I did enjoy this story of Allie and Noah and look forward to more Nicholas Sparks novels in the future.
