Nights in Rodanthe


by Nicholas Sparks

Another novel from the bestselling author Nicholas Sparks (A Walk to Remember, The Notebook) who knows how to tug heartstrings, Nights in Rodanthe is a story that showcases unbelievable faith and romance.

Adrienne Willis has been a divorcee for over 3 years after her husband Jack had abandoned her for another younger woman and since then, her perspective about finding a new love has been changed. She loses confidence in herself and only focused her attention to her kids. Until she tends an inn for a friend in Rodanthe, North Carolina for the weekend and meets Dr. Paul Flanner, her whole life has gone through a wonderful whirlwind that she will surely remember for a lifetime.

Similar to other Nicholas Sparks books, Nights in Rodanthe is a very good read. Predictable, yes (I've already read Message In A Bottle and A Walk to Remember before this one), but it has gave me another love story to remember. The time frame in which the climax of the love affair happens is very short (it was only a weekend), but you can't tell during the course of the reading.

There are many points of this book that I liked. Say for example, is the appreciation for the elderly and treasuring the family relationship.

The thickness of the book might get you underestimating it, but Nights in Rodanthe could be slower to read at some points. However, all in all, I've got nothing against this but my ability to predict the ending (yet still experiencing surprises here and there). I did not even sleep just to finish this book and even if I thought I wouldn't shed a tear, it managed to break my heart especially in the coming of the last chapters. I'm sure if you've enjoyed other works of the author, you will enjoy this one too.

Rating: 4 1/2 stars
