Publisher's Summary

The Notebook adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*

Booktrack editions are essentially a new genre of digital storytelling entertainment.  Music and ambient audio are added to complement and enhance the audiobook experience. It is a synchronized movie-style soundtrack that complements the narration of existing audiobooks; the tempo and rhythm of the score harmonize with action, dialogue and the characters' emotional arcs. 

Every so often a love story so captures our hearts that it becomes more than a story - it becomes an experience to remember forever. The Notebook is such a book. It is a celebration of how passion can be ageless and timeless, a tale that moves us to laughter and tears and makes us believe in true love all over again...  

At 31, Noah Calhoun, back in coastal North Carolina after World War II, is haunted by images of the girl he lost more than a decade earlier. At 29, socialite Allie Nelson is about to marry a wealthy lawyer, but she cannot stop thinking about the boy who long ago stole her heart. Thus begins the story of a love so enduring and deep it can turn tragedy into triumph, and may even have the power to create a miracle...

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

One of the best love stories ever written!

This book is such a moving retelling of true love and sacrifice. It is one of my favorite books I’ve ever read.

Music was distracting

I absolutely loved the movie, but this book seemed to get on my nerves with the music in the background. Gave it a sing song appeal that I must have not been into. Kept me from really enjoying the book.

Caught my attention from beginning to the end!

I enjoyed very much listening to this audiobook...the narrator was very expressive in telling the story, and also the sound added to it made the moments become more real!
It was a beautiful love story!
I liked it because the novel was short and you can finish listening to it quickly without getting bored!
I recommend this to everyone!

Forced myself to finish

Very average.... Just a little too much romance. Like others have said, the background music in the performance was annoying

love this story

I've loved this story since I saw the movie.
I am usually a book snob and don't like to see a movie on a book I've read.
in the case, I was trapped by the movie and couldn't wait to read the book.
Years later, I still love the story and have bought it on audio.
