First off, I'd like to offer myself as exhibit A in the case against the hypothesis that carriers of the XY gene are love story averse. Though I must admit that partly the reason for my reading this novel is Diane Lane. What can I say? Shes really pretty.

With that said, I was a little, well... disappointed with this one. I've never read a Spark's novel before but enjoyed the silver screen version of The Notebook so I was expecting something a lil more I suppose. If I could use one word to descri
I am just a big Nicholas Sparks fan! I love the way he writes. This is just another great one of his that I loved as I was reading it and could not put it down. Can't wait for the movie!

What I learned from this book is merely a confirmation of something I already know because I have children - most parents willingly and without hesitation make tremendous sacrifices for their children. They will put aside their own wants and needs and sometimes personal happiness so that their children's lives go on uninterrupted and relatively normal. Usually the children are unaware of what they have been given.

An older mother shares with her grieving daughter a yet untold story to help her d

Sekali lagi saya terpesona oleh gaya penceritaan Nicholas Sparks. Mendayu-dayu tapi tidak menye-menye. Romantis namun tidak bombastis. Ceritanya mudah ditebak, walaupun begitu tetap saja saya dibawa ikut dalam irama drama yang naik turun.

Hebatnya lagi begitu jelas dan detilnya Nic Sparks menceritakan bagaimana kisah cinta dua manusia di usia yang tak lagi muda, namun tetap sangat menarik. Saya ikut merasakan getar dan gelora asmara yang dialami kedua tokoh utama Nights in Rodanthe. Plus saat me

This book is a quick read (easily read in one sitting) with a great message driven home clearly, poetically and effectively.

While I understand that Nicholas Sparks gets glowing reviews about how touching and beautiful his sensitivity to romance is, what I actually found more remarkable about this book were the characters themselves. There were two main characters: A man and a woman. It was my experience that the man was the stronger of the two characters and the woman served as a witness to this

Tak membutuhkan waktu yang cukup lama untuk membaca novel ini. Ceritanya mudah dan ringan untuk diikuti. Kisah ini berpusat pada tokoh Adrianne. Seorang ibu yang terlihat lemah tapi ternyata mempunyai jiwa yang kuat yang orang lain tak sangka. Adrianne mengajarkan anaknya dan kita semua bahwa jatuh dan menangis setelah kehilangan itu adalah normal. Namun, bangun dan kembali melanjutkan hidup membutuhkan perjuangan tersendiri.

This book left me feeling conflicted. A few years ago I probably would have loved this book and given it 5 stars. I used to be such a sap for anything (which explained my love of twilight) but now I'm more sensible.

I'll start with the positive things about this book. First of all, I liked the books message. Adrienne wanted her daughter to understand that even though she was grieving the loss of her husband, she had responsibilities to look after her children. My dad died when I was 15 and my mo
Ketika Robert Torrelson (yang istrinya meninggal dan menggugat Paul sang dokter) mendatangi Paul di penginapan Rodanthe untuk menceritakan tentang sang istri, saya menangis.

Opening line: "Three years earlier, on a warm November morning Adrienne Willis had returned to the Inn and at first glance had thought it unchanged, as if the small inn were impervious to the sun and sand and salted mist."

Even in a book that's only 222 pages long Nicholas Sparks manages to weave his magic. Building a level of suspense as we await breathless to learn of Paul's fate. Reminisent of The Bridges of Madison County this is a quick, easy read but a great story nontheless.

What a waste of time. Read chapter one and you don't need to continue. This is so predictable and such an overworked concept. How did this guy get to be a best selling author?

I don't know why I attempted another Sparks novel. I think my friend told me to read it and I had previously trusted her knowledge of literature...until she recommended Twilight...but I digress. One question: why are all of Nicholas Sparks' characters out of the ordinary and incredible people in one way or the other? They're flawless, perfect, super-beings from another realm. In other words, they're unrelatable. Seriously, the protagonist in this novel had this back story: grew up on a farm with ...more

I watched every movie adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' novels but I never cared to actually read his novels which made me feel like I was cheating on this author. I thought it was kind of unfair that I benefit so much from his stories by merely watching the movie adaptations. So, when I saw my chance at retribution through a book sale, I automatically laid my eyes and hands on this book and yes I braced myself for the tears and the death common in Sparks' books which I indeed encountered in this b ...more

This book sucked. Sorry all you Sparks fans! Don't mean to offend, but I can't believe a retired high school English teacher recommended it to me. Maybe they thought I wanted something "light". It was very True Romance in my view and his characters were sappy and overly sentimental and sweet. Nicholas Sparks has a great following, maybe I'm just too old to like romance books anymore! After I finished it, not sure why I did, I felt guilty that I could have been cleaning my bathroom with the time ...more
This is seriously devastating. Nicholas Sparks has a bad habit of torturing his readers feelings. Ugh!
Glad to finish.

I am so sorry to those who have read and loved this book but I did not because it is flat. I really wanted to like this book but I just don't feel I was brought into any serious connection with these characters at all. The only picture I have of them is from the movie and that in my opinion is not good. Having read several books that have been adapted for movies I just believe the book should have more detail after all it's words but no, not with this one. Don't get me wrong, th

You know, I read The Notebook and didn't like it, but I thought I'd give Nicholas Sparks another try. I always hear people raving about his books. So, I am planning on watching Nights in Rodanthe with my mom, and I wanted to read the book first. Let me tell you: it is terrible. Sparks' writing is so damn cheesy. I guess I shouldn't say the book wasn't entertaining because it had me laughing out loud several times. I even read certain passages to my girlfriends so we could get a good laugh. Plus, ...more

Nicholas Sparks is such a wonderful story teller. I started this book last night at 3 AM when I couldn't sleep, and less than 24 hours later I was finished. I couldn't put it down!

The sweet, secret romance that took place between Adrienne and Paul was so romantic. Just about every woman dreams of the whirlwind romance that is portrayed in the novel.

That said, I felt this was more like a short-story than a novel. It was over too quickly, and I felt that there could have been more to the romance

*audiobook review*

So, if you like Nicholas Sparks novels, this review may not be for you. I'd never actually read any of his novels, though I've enjoyed a few of the movies well enough (A Walk to Remember and of course, the Notebook, particularly). And I'm good with a little romance. A whole lot of romance even. But this story was just too heavy handed for me to really enjoy. There was insta-love, great personal change, and redemption over the course of a weekend. The plot felt manipulative, as

"She had fallen in love with a stranger over the course of a weekend. And she had come to believe that she'd learned more in those five days than she had in all the years before and after. Love was the essence of a full and wonderful life."

I am not a huge fan of Nicolas Sparks, but when I heard about this book I was really interested in reading it because it takes place in Rodanthe, North Carolina. I absolutely love the Outer Banks. I went there a few months ago and it was the most wild, beautif

One star because I wasn't able to finish. I was recently told one way to read more in 2015 is to not force yourself to finish a book you don't enjoy so I'm moving on!

A usual Nicholas Sparks book.

Sea side city setting.
Redeemed characters.
Cliches upon cliches.

I keep reading his books in hopes that one will really wow me but this one definitely wasn't it.

As usual Nicholar Sparks' style!! A blend of sentiment romance emotion and tragedy!!

The plot begins slowly, gains its pace and maintains it!! The way the romance narrated is to be appreciated!! A regular sparks' reader can easily guess what would happen!! The touch of emotion to the plot is the TM of Mr. Sparks!! The emotional bondage between the two leads and the repercussions were dealt amazingly!!

But once if u understand the writing style of Mr. Sparks', then the plot can be easily predictabl
