First Sentence
Three years earlier, on a warm November morning in 1999, Adrienne Willis had returned to the Inn and at first glance had thought it unchanged, as if the small Inn were impervious to sun and sand and salted mist. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
It was not difficult to guess how this book would end. Very early it became clear, and for a moment I wondered about the point of reading it all, since I knew the ending anyway. But luckily, something pulled. I continued reading every word and got deeply touched by this beautiful, yet realistic, story about true love. The joy when it happens and - as the book says - the tragedy when it ends. The greater the love, the worse the tragedy.

It's an amazing story. A story about how four days can change three people's lives. Adrienne, Paul and Paul's son Mark.

This is not a book to hurry through, in spite of the page-turning quality. It's a book for afterthought. A book to devour. A book which makes you stop and reflect on what is important in life, in people. To search under the surface. To question racing through life in order to obtain success, money, fame. Never enough. Never too fast. Blind to what really matters.

Life is short. The saying "it's never too late" is not true. Sometimes it IS too late. Finding happiness is precious. However long it lasts, it's important and its aftermath may change a life forever.

Nicholas Sparks does not only write for romantics. "Nights in Rodanthe" is a realistic story. Tenderly told and with much insight into the human mind and heart.

We are not so different after all. We all want peace of mind, love, security, happiness.

As the author well knows.

It seems almost impossible that a man can fall in love so deeply with a woman he had known withnin a week.Although the plot isn't very strong,Sparks writing's very smooth and thus the story is tender and poignant.This is a very touching story and it has also imparted some values to me.....I highly recommend this book!!!!!

After reading most of Nicholas Sparks' books I had high standards for this one and I was not disappointed. It was full of the romance I had come to expect from these books. Well worth the money paid for it. A must for all of Nicholas sparks fans everywhere.

If you are a fan of Nicholas Sparks, do not hesitate to buy this book. It is as well written as all of his other novels. I do not want to ruin the story by summing it all up here, but lets just say that you can expect to smile, cry and reflect on your own life. All of his story's can be related to by most people. He writes with such emotion and vivid explanations (it is like your watching a movie in your mind). I am sure this book will not disappoint any if his fans!!!!Good book to read also if you would like to be introduced to Nicholas Sparks' novels. I also highly recommend Message in a Bottle and The Rescue.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Alessi Lover TOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 Mar. 2009
Format: Paperback
A lovely tale of romance and love, written by such a talented author Nicholas Sparks.

It tells the tale of how a middle aged lady finds love again and in an unexpected way, she recounts the tale (maybe the greatest love affair in her life) to her daughter some years later. Letters from the past are kept and an almost fairy tale romance follows.

The warmth and passion that come out of this book by the author cann't but help be felt when you read it. Not such some soapy romance but something with a deeper and caring feeling to it, especially when you find out what happens at the end.

A brilliant book to curl up with full of emotion, tears and that never ending feeling of what will the outcome be. You might just guess what happens before the final chapters, but even if you do I am sure you will not be disappointed with the story.

One for taking away on holiday, a good old fashioned romance.

Format: Hardcover
Sparks is a very good writter. And this book is well written and short. But so far it has been my least favorite of all his books. With this, his latest love story, he tells us the story of two shattered people. Both sadly scarred by past experiences. Who find each other late in life and realize they are soul mates.

The story takes place in a small coastal town of Rodanthe, North Carolina where Adrienne Willis is tending to a friends Inn as she re-thinks her life. Her husband had left her three years earlier for a younger woman. And the Inn's only guest, Paul Flanner who has just sold his medical practice and has come to Rodanthe to escape his own shattered past.

This meeting of the two takes place within the midst of major storm. Which brings these two people closer toegther. And we share their weekend together. A weekend that will change them. As well as affect the rest of their lives.

I thought that the book was too short. There could have been a lot more written about conversations between the two as they got to know each other.

That said, I thought this was a fantastic book. The characters wonderful and I think the storyline is believable which is against what some other reviews might say. I think it possible to know after spending less than a week with someone that they are the one for you. If it is your soul mate, then it does not take months or years for you to know this. The reviews giving this book a low rating do not seem to believe this is possible, but I think that without a doubt that it is possible. I think maybe there is too much emphasis on dating and getting to know each other in our societies. I, like Adrienne have loved and lost and I also knew immediately that he was the one for me. I think situations like this do happen; especially with people who are not looking for a relationship and are not interested in dating because they have other things/problems/hobbies going on in their lives. It does happen.

The book has quite a lot of depth; the story is told to help Adrienne's daughter, the few days together help 3 people initially (Adrienne, Paul and Mark), Paul's marriage and his realisation that he has to change and that he has let his father down, Mark's forgiveness of his father thanks to the days Paul spent with Adrienne, Adrienne's hope and forgiveness of her ex-husband Jack. Everything comes together so well, but I think that it could and should have been longer.
