"The Notebook" Chapter: Reunion p. 37-56

- This chapter is 42 pages long so I broke it in half. At the bottom of page 56 is a gap in the paragraphs so its a good stopping point. -

How sweet, Noah and Allie lock eyes and neither knows what to say, so unsure around each other.
They are going to drive me nuts. It's obvious they want to be together, otherwise why is she there. She didn't need to tell him she's getting married, especially in person. She just wanted to see him to see if the spark is still there. She is unsure about her engagement. She still loves Noah. He was her first love and he is still in her heart. They both keep staring at each other when the other isn't looking (does that make since?).

Noah thinks of a painting Allie had given him that "hung above the fireplace". Is it still there? If so why didn't Allie notice it when she wandered through the house? Maybe she will see it later.

I am really enjoying this book.

Next pages 57-79 the second half of chapter "Reunion" on Tuesday July 1st.

"The Notebook" Chapters: Miracles & Ghosts

Its a short chapter, basically an introduction. But it leaves you with many questions and eager to read more. We are introduced to an old man with a worn notebook and a woman who's crying, but we don't know why? I like how descriptive things are. The nurses seem to pity him.

I would love a house with a wraparound porch, I want to sit there in the rocking chair and watch the sunset.
Young love, first love, Allie, socialite city girl meets Noah, rugged small town boy.
The ending of this chapter makes me want to keep reading. Everything leads up the the last paragraph that grabs you.
How sweet, one whirlwind summer together that they never forget. How many years later? They finally meet again. Its a story about fate, love, romance! Such a good chapter. Once again, I love how descriptive everything is, the writer really paints a picture for you.
I can totally relate to Allie, fixin herself up to go see him. The nervousness and excitement. The inner turmoil of weather she should be there or not.
I cant wait to read more.
