A Bend in the Road
A Bend in the Road is the fifth novel by the American author Nicholas Sparks, who also wrote the romance love novels A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, and The Rescue. It was published in 2001. The story was inspired by Sparks's brother-in-law, Bob.
Miles Ryan's life seemed to end the day his wife Missy was killed in a hit-and-run accident two years ago. As deputy sheriff of New Bern, North Carolina, he not only grieves for her and worries about their young son ...more
A veces, sencillamente, lees lo que tu alma necesita en ese momento. Es una comunión única, una lazo invisible que anhela como un suave bálsamo esas palabras escritas, que tus ojos recorren. No voy a decir que esta sea una gran novela, ni que se me ha encogido el corazón, no, pero, como he dicho al principio, una a veces solo necesita una suave ola de calor.
Nicholas Sparks is like comfort food, I always know going in the kind of emotional love story I’m going to get and I can count on being sucked into the lives, loves and heartache of his small town characters. They’re written realistic ...more
Svi znaju za Milesa i Missy. Srednjoškolska ljubav, divan brak i jedan sin, Jonah. No, jednog dana se sve mijenja. Miles ostaje udovac nakon što Missy pronalaze mrtvu pored obližnje ceste. Ne zna se ko je kriv za njenu smrt, a dvije godine nakon toga Miles još uvijek traga za krivcem. Jednog dana se u njegovom životu pojavljuje Sarah, Jonahom učiteljica i on polako kreće dalje... sve dok se ne pojave novi dokazi o počiniocu.
Roman je vrlo jednostavno pisan, ima svega nekoliko likova i radnju k ...more

but again, it is nicholas spark. i enjoy it and it took me by surprise that i enjoy it. miles is a confusing character. sarah is facinating and jonah deserves a spin off.
Het boek biedt romantiek, maar niet zo zeemzoet, wel met diepe emoties die je echt kunnen raken. Maar toch kan je in het verhaal ook wel wat spanning terug vinden .. hoe dat juist in elkaar zit, ga ik hier niet vertellen ... dat zullen jullie dan maar zelf moeten ontdekken 😉.
Het boek is zeer toegankelijk met een vlotte schrijfstijl ...more
I read last Sparks book in January, I have watched all the movies and now I am reading books, Yeah cycle is inverted here, There isn’t movie adaption of A bend in the road so I was clueless. It took me 80 pages to feel the Nicholas vibes, It was so different from the other books, MCs were widower and divorcee so this story mostly tackles adults problem which I wasn’t expecting 😐
“grown-ups always say that things are complicat ...more
I believe it could have been much better in a number of ways though.
I won't recommend it but if ...more
Niet mijn eerste Sparks boek en het zal vast ook niet mijn laatste zijn. Toch denk ik dat ik altijd meer onder de indruk ben van de verfilmingen dan van de boeken zelf.
De vrouw van Miles verongelukt tijdens het hardlopen. Miles blijft achter met zijn jonge zoon, Jonah. Jonah heeft het lastig op school, waarop zijn juf Sarah hem besluit te helpen. ...more
Right, so I was recommended this book by my co-worker who I made read the Hunger Games, and ...more
While Miles immersed himself with his search, seven-year-old Jonah suffered. He missed not only his mother, but al ...more
This was pretty good, sure.
So there's a bunch of rivalry going on in this tiny city. Sarah-I think that's her name-had just come for a couple months, as a school teacher and meets this kid Jonas. He's kinda falling behind-no not dumb-but was not pushed to doing work and stuff.
And it was because his mom had died, so from pity, teachers passed him despite his lack of education.
So yes. A parent-teacher conference is needed.
And yes. Once a ...more
Miles Ryan has been struggling over the past two years to find his footing in life after his wife Missy was killed in a hit and run. Just how disconnected he has been is brought home when he finds out how badly his son Jonah is doing in school.
The emotional bondage between the lead characters during their different times was narrated so touchingly!! And yeah there is always the sparks kind of romance which is always a worth read!! The death of his wife and the repercussions were narrated in a wonderful way!! The pinch of sentime ...more
