Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks

How I Read It: Audiobook/ Ebook

Dates Read: 6/29/19-7/1/19

Meh. This book was okay, but it didn’t do anything for me. The romance was so short-lived and I didn’t really feel it.

This book follows Adrienne as she tells her daughter, Amanda, about her love affair with Paul Flanner. After a stay in an inn in Rodanthe, NC, where Adrienne covered as innkeeper for her friend, they became closer until the moment came that they wanted to bask in their closeness. But life seems to always catch up to them, and they have to make decisions about their love and their futures.

This one definitely was not my favorite, but it happens. While I think that Adrienne is incredibly strong, I don’t necessarily think that this love story was one of his best. With that being said, there are books for everyone and everyone for books, so just because I wasn’t on board doesn’t mean you won’t be!

While the movie did a relatively good job of falling the book, I still found it lackluster. (P.S. James Franco is in the movie?!?!?!) At no point did I feel “love” and I just wasn’t into it. I think that the guy who played Robert Torrellson was incredibly good, though!

Side note: When I was in college (which is a great phrase to make me feel old), I told all my dorm-mates that the MOST romantic thing a movie could do is have wild horses running on the beach. They thought I was insane. But here’s the thing: I’m not. I knew it was real, but I couldn’t remember where I saw it. So to all those people: I TOLD YOU SO!
