STAND ALONE/SERIES: Stand Alone
OUTLINE: A Southern-fried story of love-lost-and-found-again, revolves around a single time-honored romantic dilemma: will beautiful Allison Nelson stay with Mr. Respectability (to whom she happens to be engaged), or will she hook up with Noah, the romantic rascal she left so many years ago? We're not telling, but you have two guesses and the first one doesn't count. Decades later, after Allison develops Alzheimer's, her beau uses "the notebook" to read her the story of the great love she's plumb forgot.
MY THOUGHTS: I read this book after the movie came out. I think I only read it then because my friend gave me the book. It was a good book I'm not a fan of it starting one way then flipping back to the past for most of it then going back. I thought the actual story was really sweet though for a man that you love to go through all that trouble to tell you a story. Knowing that you won't remember it.
I'm not really a big fan of Nicholas Sparks to begin with I guess it's not sci-fiy (Is that even a word sci fiy...LOL) enough for me, or it doesn't consist of the paranormal. :) I think I've found my true love in way of books.
I do however like most of the movies that come from his books. Maybe I should read The Last Song and Dear John because I liked well The Last Song movie. I haven't seen the other one.
Sorry this review wasn't more "in depth" like the others. Some books bring out the typer in me and some don't. :)
MOVIE: I wasn't overly excited about this movie like I think alot people seemed to be. I like rachel mcadams and then other dude who played in it.
