Nights in Rodanthe, a romance fiction novel, is written by Nicholas Sparks, published by Vision, Hachette Book Group of USA, in June 2003, and copyrighted 2002 by Nickolas Sparks. Nicholas Spark is an American novelist, screenwriter and producer who is well-known for his romantic stories. Sparks’ string of New York Times bestsellers includes: A Walk to Remember, Message in a Bottle, The Rescue, A Bend in the Road, Nights in Rodanthe, The Guardian, The Wedding, True Believer and its sequel, At First Sight, Dear John, The Last Song, Safe Haven and The Best of Me. Nights in Rodanthe is one if his eight film adaptation books. Unlike most of his novels, Nights in Rodanthe is not inspired from the specific people in his life. The interesting thing about this novel is that the two lead characters of the novel are named after his in-laws- Paul and Adrienne because this was what his in-laws-parents had ever wished as a Christmas present. Sparks is involved in many local and national charities. Along with his wife, he founded a nonprofit organization called the Nicholas Sparks Foundation to transform and improve education in the United States. Nights in Rodanthe is a tender story of hope, sacrifice and forgiveness. Also, it reminds that love is possible at any age, at any time, and often comes when least expected. The story starts with Adrienne and her daughter, Amy, where Adrienne decides to tell her about the most touching and the secret part of her life because she thinks that this might help Amy cope with the death of her husband. Adrienne begins her story from Rodanthe, North Carolina where she went to tend to a friend's inn for the weekend, and met 54-years –old Paul Flanner. There, they both, reeling from the pain of their divorces, turned to each other and truly found the desired comfort. By the end of the weekend, they depart to do their pending duties among their families while planning to meet again. After all that, Sparks successfully describe rest of the story while maintaining the emotional attachments of his readers. This is Nicholas Sparks’ first novel that I read because of my book report assignment; and I found it enjoyable. Because the writer well managed to curiosity of story until the last minute, the book was very difficult to put down. The writer made a smooth flow of story by avoiding unnecessary details. The level of English used in novel is genuine to be read by general people. I haven’t found much difficult vocabulary. I would say this is a good book for those who likes to read fast-flowing love story books. I also recommend this book to my class fellows for the reason that its level of English is quite close to our class level; plus, the story is fast moving and the curiosity generator that keeps you interest in.
