Book Review: Nights In Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks

Nights in Rodanthe
Nicholas Sparks

Truth be told that when I first picked this book up at the library a few weeks ago I had forgotten that it had come out as a movie only a year or so ago starring Richard Gere and Diane Lane.  Once at home the realization hit me and I thought, oh great, a romance novel.  What was I thinking?

However, I had just finished reading The Hour I First Believed, by Wally Lamb and after reading such a deep and disturbing novel I thought, what the heck, I'm going to read Nights In Rodanthe.  I didn't think I would get past the first chapter.  Truth be told I was pleasantly surprised.  This book was more than a love story between two people.  There was an actual lesson to it.  This book was a fairly quick read and I was quite impressed in how Mr. Sparks was able to get to the point of the story while still painting a perfectly detailed picture within the pages.

  1. I read another of Nicholas Sparks books a year or so ago and really liked it – I'll have to dig around for it and see what it was! Will add this one to my list : ).
