    "Sometimes you just want books that make you sit down and cry and The Notebook was the only book that made me do it. The story is a timeless love and how things work out and I really did enjoy the book more than the movie. I have read this over and over again!"

    "I personally don't go much in for the teen fiction books. However, I liked the movie. But, for the purposes of teen fiction, and the necessity of teen fiction to be somewhat emotional, this fits the bill well. If I saw this out of the current context I'm seeing this, I would totally get it."

    "This is an extremely emotional story about the life of a young adult woman, and the tribulations she endures through sexual abuse, PTSD, and general aloneness. This is a highly relatable story for many young adult readers, and a wider audience as well. Diving deep into strong emotional subjects, this is a very popular and well reviewed modern novel."

    "I have very vivid memories of reading this book in school when I was young, and upon rereading it in my adulthood, it was every bit as poignant, heartbreaking, and profound that I remember it to be as a child. The way in which this book delicately and beautifully handles loss is such that readers of all ages can benefit from it. It is a powerfully written book that provides valuable insights into the human condition, and I think that everyone should read this story at least once in their lifetime. I believe the message of the book is extremely helpful to anyone who has experienced the death of a close loved one."
