Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks

I picked a great book to start off, huh? Anyway, you can check it out or buy it here.

Rating: [3/5]

Summary: Nights in Rodanthe is about a middle-aged divorcee, Adrienne, whose husband left her for a younger woman. Confidence shattered, she is left to raise their three children. Paul, also middle-aged and divorced, is a surgeon who recently sold his practice to join his estranged son in Ecuador as a volunteer doctor. Adrienne and Paul meet at a bed-and-breakfast in Rodanthe, where Adrienne is watching the bed-and-breakfast for a friend and Paul is visiting the husband of a woman who died on his operating table. Naturally, Paul and Adrienne fall in love. And you’ll just have to read it for yourself if you want to find out how it ends.

Likes: I liked Nights in Rodanthe because it struck me as being different from the “typical” romance novel. Paul and Adrienne are both older and have been in failed marriages before. They each have certain responsibilities to others and issues they’re trying to work through that young couples would not have.

Dislikes: I didn’t like Nights in Rodanthe because I’m not a huge fan of the way Nicholas Sparks writes. Sometimes he has a tendency to “head hop” in the middle of scenes or gives way too much background information on the characters at once.

TL;DR: That being said, I enjoyed the story on the whole and would definitely recommend it to someone who likes romance novels or who’s looking for an easy read.
