O Sorriso das Estrelas
Part of the reason Nicholas Sparks's novels are so great is…moreTwo by Two is the closest novel that ends well even though death plays a part in the book.
Part of the reason Nicholas Sparks's novels are so great is that of the concept of tragedy he introduces in each of his novels. (less)
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 ...more
An older mother shares with her grieving daughter a yet untold story to help her d ...more
I feel like I need to stop forgetting what Nicholas Sparks can do to my heart. Please stop torturing my heart sir!
Okay, so Nights in Rodanthe definitely made me cry and fall in love with Adrienne and Paul. God, their love was so real and unique. It was hard not falling in love with them. From the mom ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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.
The story begi ...more
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 ...more
In a flashback to fifteen years earlier, Adrienne is raising her three children alone since her husband left her for a younger woman.
Dr. Paul Flanner was a highly sought ...more
Okay, so how do I put this into perspective. Imagine you're on a diet. You order a salad, but unfortunately, you can't have those delicious buttery croutons that you love, and you opt for the fat-free dressing. The salad is good, but in the end, it's not as satisfying because you know something is missing. Well that's how I felt about this novel, it was good, but not exac ...more
Nights in Rodanthe is about love and loss. It's a small book really but heavy on emotion, tenderness, yearning, and love. In this book, Sparks takes us from the present, to the past and back to the present seamlessly. His story flows and tears that the heartstrings.
The book starts in the present day 8 months after Adrienne's daughter's husband has died from cancer and she (the daughter)is struggling after his death. Her grief is so much that at times she has trouble taking care of hers ...more
This is really amazing book .. I loved it so much even if it made me cry so hard ...
A lot of life lessons you can learn from only 222 pages ..
* It learns you that it is never too late to find happiness even after 54 years ...
* Love always gives you the strange and changes you to be a better person ...
* Few days of love and happiness with the person th ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
