Nights in Rodanthe - Nicholas Sparks

Um Himmelswillen! Was für eine gequirlte Ameisenscheiße! Also diese Geschichte spottet wirklich jeder Beschreibung. Ich empfehle FSK18, damit kleine Mädchen in ihrer seelischen Entwicklung nicht geschädigt werden. 


Was für ein unfassbarer QUARK. Also wirklich. Und ich dachte immer ich wäre eine hoffnungslose Romantikerin. Aber Selbstrespekt finde ich leider auch ganz gut. 


Was schön, wenn einen ein Buch so richtig auf die Palme bringt. Da kann man wenigstens nicht sagen, man wäre nicht gut unterhalten worden.

See Me - Nicholas Sparks

Enjoyable listen. I am not a Nicholas Sparks fan, bought this on sale. Glad I did, this story has bite, mystery and romance. Well worth the listen.

The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks
The Longest Ride - Nicholas Sparks

I am officially giving up after three months having read nearly 200 pages.


There is just so much damn dialogue about the most banal uninteresting things. There is absolutely zero chemistry between anyone. Everyone is so one dimensional and I have no idea how anyone found them interesting enough to pursue a relationship, let alone write about it. The romances were the most uninteresting, blasé things I have ever read, and I have no idea why anyone thought they would make a good book?


Maybe I’m too used to reading interesting (if sometimes Mary Sue) characters in my regular literature, but there is nothing interesting about any of the characters or their situations and resolutions. This book may as well be called ‘Life’ and it’s boring as fuck (it’s literally called ‘The Longest Ride’ because life is the longest ride). Regular issues that regular people go through? I don’t find that interesting in fiction.


But I watched the movie, so does that count? Also Scott Eastwood is gorgeous, so was the scenery, and I liked the changes the film made from the book, it made it a better, more coherent story.


Here’s some Scott Eastwood appreciation:

Nights in Rodanthe
Nights in Rodanthe - Nicholas Sparks Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Pinterest


Nicholas Sparks is the romance genius. He is able to create stories of people falling in love, like no author I have read a book from yet. He puts so much emotion and feeling into the pages, that after one of his books, reading another romance seems boring.

Having read almost all of his books, I decided to finish all the ones I haven’t read, and when I suddenly encountered this one in the library, I told myself – ‘’Hey, why not?’’

The synopsis was intriguing, as all of his books are, but unlike the others, Nights in Rodanthe left me disappointed. With his books – this was the first time I ever felt like that. And that is why I need to mention this.

First of all, the story is very predictable. Too predictable – even. I knew what was going to happen from the very first chapters, and I was expecting at least a little bit of a plot twist, but nothing really happened.

Secondly, the romance was fake. The falling in love part? I didn’t see it. I just can’t imagine people falling in love in three days. I am sorry – but it is impossible. Crush, interest, lust, someone paying attention to you, and you feeling goosebumps – I can understand it all. But in three days, I can’t imagine anyone falling so deeply for one another, that you can’t look at another person ever again, and they are all you think about, all day.

Honestly – how well can you get to know a person in three days? Will you get to know the real person? When you’ve never seen them sad, angry, how they behave in company, how they behave when drunk, when upset, when they are doing daily chores, like going at work (note – this all happened while they were sort-of on vacation).

I can remember how many summers I have spent going on vacation for ten days, and thinking I was in love with someone. I am sure you have gone through the same.

So, knowing all this above, I just couldn’t feel for these people as I used to feel with many from Sparks’s characters in other books. And don’t judge me, that this would be the sole reason why I rate this book the way I do. After all, it’s a romance novel.

On the other side though – it is an emotional novel. If you, for a moment forget how fast this romance happened and how unreal it is, the story is going to deeply hurt your soul, and crush you into pieces. Fake romance or not, you are going to shed a few tears for sure.

To wrap this up – I didn’t like it. I am not into fake, impossible romance. But this book seems to be a hit or miss, so if you like Nicholas Sparks – I still encourage you to read it. You never know, it might be your favourite book from him so far.
